Importance of Preventing Vector-Born Diseases

BY: Lee Davis, Southern Pride Pest Control

Vector-borne diseases threaten the health, safety, and well-being of your family. Commonly transmitted to humans from mosquito bites, vector-borne illnesses include:

  • Malaria
  • Zika virus
  • Dengue fever
  • Lyme disease

Mosquito Control: How to Prevent Vector-Borne Illnesses

Mosquitoes (and other insects) transmit disease through fecal matter or by biting the victim.  They carry harmful pathogens, bacteria, and parasites that can cause mild, moderate, or severe symptoms, up to death. Keep mosquitoes away from your property to reduce the threat of vector-borne diseases affecting your loved ones.

Eliminating mosquitoes through targeted pest control solutions is the best way to maintain a pest-free property. We recommend the following pest control options.

  • Pesticides: Pesticides effectively target mosquitoes using a chemical solution.
  • Traps: Mosquito traps are designed to attract and capture mosquitoes. Place the traps anywhere on your property where there is mosquito activity.
  • Insect Growth Regulators: IGRs prevent mosquito larvae from maturing. IRGs are eco-friendly treatments that target the pest at specific life stages.
  • Larvicide Treatments: Sheffield homeowners residing near ponds, bird baths, or other stagnant water sources may find larvicide treatments helpful in controlling mosquito populations.

More Tips to Stay Safe Against Vector-Borne Illnesses

The following tips offer additional protection against mosquitoes, whether you’re at home enjoying the outdoors or when you are out and about but still want protection.

  • Habitat modification involves draining standing water, cleaning gutters, and maintaining the landscape outside your home to eliminate spots where mosquitoes can lay eggs.
  • Insect repellent sprays, candles, and other products containing DEET or similar ingredients keep mosquitoes at bay while you are outdoors.
  • Wear protective clothing that covers your arms and legs.
  • Mosquito netting helps control mosquitoes.
