Diseases Mosquitoes Spread
Mosquitoes are annoying, frustrating, hovering little pests- and surprisingly loud for their size. After just one encounter with a mosquito, you’re left with a souvenir on your skin, which comes in the form of a little red bite that sends you mad with itching for days after the encounter.
More than any of this, mosquitoes are a serious health hazard to people, pets, and other forms of wildlife, especially birds. This is due to their diet of human and animal blood since they pick up certain infectious diseases from their victims and pass them on when they target their next meal. They transfer these diseases from human to human, from animal to animal, or from animal to human etc.
Each year in the US, people are infected by mosquito-borne diseases such as the West Nile virus, Dengue fever, the Zika virus, and Chikungunya virus, which can cause serious illness in humans and animals alike, occasionally causing human deaths, and commonly causing fatalities in the natural world.
