College Park Mosquito Control Needs to be Constant and Consistent
The thought might cross your mind that your little corner of the world in College Park surely would be a lot nicer if there weren’t so many mosquitoes! Research that was done in 2016 by the Center for Disease Control showed that numbers of mosquitoes in Florida were up in 2016 by 10 percent to 21 percent. The biggest increase was found to be the Aedes Aegypti variety of mosquito, the type that likes to lay eggs in standing water. These constantly increasing numbers make College Park mosquito control more important than ever.
Mosquito control needs to be diligently and consistently done to help ensure the good health of Florida residents. Not only are mosquitoes pests that bite and cause itchy, red rashes and welts, scratching those bites can lead to even more intense itching and a skin infection if the skin is broken. Mosquitoes are also well-known to be carriers of some of the world’s most serious, virulent and deadly diseases!
Diseases Mosquitoes are Famous for Spreading
Mosquitoes are reportedly responsible for over 700,000 deaths worldwide. The biggest disease threat they pose is the spread of Malaria, especially in Africa where over 438,000 deaths occurred in 2015. Everywhere in the world, though, mosquitoes also spread diseases like Chikungunya, Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever, Elephantiasis and the West Nile Virus. Most recently, there has been serious concern over the spread of the Zika Virus since it has been linked to Guillain-Barre Syndrome in adults and devastating Microcephaly in infants.

Destroying Mosquitoes Where they live and Breed
Mosquitoes have found College Park to be an incredibly warm and welcoming place to settle down and establish roots. They love the warm, humid and semi-tropical environment and especially standing water sources where they can breed and lay eggs that become attached to the sides of water sources. In College Park yards, these sources are found through things like pet bowls, swimming pool covers, discarded tires, saucers from planters, pools, buckets and bird baths.
Add to this the water sources mosquitoes find naturally in creeks, rivers, ponds, wetlands, and around area homes in clogged gutters, down spouts that are not draining properly, drainage ditches and flood plains, and you have a recipe for increased populations. Mosquitoes also love the blood they get from people so they can use the protein to nourish their young. It is the female mosquitoes that are responsible for biting. They’re attracted to bacteria on people’s skin, the carbon dioxide emitted when people breathe, dark clothes and people’s movement.
