Mosquito Control For Homes In Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington DC
Mosquitoes can be active year round, especially in urban areas, but are most commonly encountered during the warmer months of the year, when the air temperature exceeds 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the species, they may hibernate through the winter as adults, or as eggs in “diapause.” When temperatures start to rise and rain picks back up in the spring, adult mosquitoes (depending on the species) and eggs in diapause pick up right where they left off. To take back control of your yard, we recommend our Monthly Tick & Mosquito Control plan.
Ticks And Mosquitoes Vector Disease
According to the CDC, almost everyone has been bitten by a mosquito, tick, or flea. Vectors can be anything that spread pathogens. A person who gets bitten by a vector, then gets sick due to that bite has a vector-borne disease. Some vector-borne diseases have been around for thousands of years (plague, for example); others were discovered more recently.
Ticks can be infected with bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Ticks in the United States are also known to spread a wide variety of diseases, including:
Colorado Tick Fever
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness
Tick-Borne Relapsing Fever
Mosquitoes are responsible for over 1,000,000 human deaths per year. Worldwide, mosquitoes are known to vector a wide variety of diseases, including:
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
La Crosse Encephalitis
St. Louis Encephalitis
“A disease threat anywhere in the world may be just a plane ride away.”
- Dr. Tom Frieden
