The tiny mosquito kills more human beings than any other creature. In Florida, we rarely get outbreaks of deadly mosquito-borne diseases, but we always have to worry about painful and frightening illnesses. If you have a mosquito problem around your house or business, itchy bites are just the beginning. Get Panama City pest control on the scene to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Diseases Caused by Mosquitoes in Florida
Mosquitoes carry viruses that do not harm the insect, but rather get transmitted into the hosts they bite. Also called arboviruses (like Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses), mosquito illnesses include West Nile fever, Rift Valley fever, Chikungunya fever, dengue fever, Zika fever, and St. Louis encephalitis.
Common symptoms of mosquito-borne diseases include:
– Stiff neck
– Joint pain
– Skin rash
Rare but serious effects can also include vomiting, seizures, and paralysis.
