Could you imagine if the deadliest animal in the world came into your own New Jersey backyard? Would you be able to protect your loved ones against it? Well, odds are you have faced this animal multiple times, and many people are unaware of its true dangers.
The mosquito kills at least 725,000 people a year making it the deadliest animal by far. Yes, that’s right, that tiny little pest buzzing around your ear can actually do a lot of harm. The only other animal that comes close is a snake, which kills a mere 50,000 people a year. The frightening shark only kills around 10 people a year!
Some of the dangerous diseases that mosquitoes can spread include malaria, Dengue, yellow fever, West Nile, and the most recently the Zika virus. During their breeding season, there are more mosquitoes in the world than any other animal except for ants and termites. It also doesn’t look like we will be stopping these deadly creatures anytime soon. There are over 2,500 different species of mosquitoes and they can be found all over the world (except Antarctica). Mosquitoes have also changed their eating habits to adapt to changing environments. They now start feeding earlier in the year. This is why it is so important to spray for mosquitoes as soon as possible. Now is a good time to take advantage of our pre-pay discounts.
The mosquito is considered a vector because they can transfer diseases between humans, or from animals to humans. Other vectors include ticks and fleas. Vector-borne diseases account for 17% of all infectious diseases around the world. Ticks are most active the month of April. Mosquito Joe can help you in your quest against these deadly vectors by spraying for all three insects.
