Mosquitoes can be one of the most annoying and dangerous insects that are found in Knoxville, TN. They can transfer many harmful diseases to us and our animal friends. These diseases include West Nile virus, yellow fever, malaria, encephalitis, dengue fever and now the zika virus. The zika virus is a scary buzz word, but is a true threat to our families. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is now saying common U.S. mosquitos, not just tropical mosquitos can carry this disease and there is no known treatment if you become infected. So what’s the best measure to combat these pests? Other than avoiding mosquitos and the outdoors, which can be pretty difficult in East Tennessee, your best prevention is to use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents. When used as directed, EPA-registered insect repellents are proven safe and effective, even for pregnant and breast-feeding women. Another fantastic prevention method is to set up a monthly mosquito service. This service not only rids your property of mosquitoes, but also controls fleas, ticks, and other turf dwelling insects.
