While many Ohio residents are taking precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19, residents must also remain vigilant against other relevant health threats. Every year, hundreds of Ohio residents become seriously ill from mosquito bites. To safeguard your family against these dangerous pests, contact Lawn Plus LLC to schedule mosquito control service. One treatment provides 30 days of protection and peace of mind.
For most people, mosquito bites result in a few days of itchiness. Unfortunately, for a growing number of others, mosquitos pose a dangerous threat. Mosquitos in Miami Valley are known to transmit the following diseases:
- West Nile virus – West Nile is the most commonly transmitted virus from mosquitos to humans. Up to 20 percent of people who become infected with the virus will experience symptoms, including fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and rash. More severe side effects are possible, and 10 percent of those diagnosed with severe illness will succumb to the disease.
- Zika virus – Zika virus is not prevalent in Ohio, but health officials are concerned that the virus (and the mosquitos that carry it) will make their way northward over time. Symptoms of Zika virus are similar to those of West Nile virus, but also include joint and muscle pain, and conjunctivitis. Zika virus poses a more serious risk to pregnant women and can cause dangerous birth defects in unborn babies.
- Heartworm disease – Heartworm disease causes lung disease, heart failure, and other organ damage in infected pets. A single bite can have fatal consequences for your cat or dog.
