Mosquitoes can quickly ruin your outdoor activities. Constantly swatting, smacking, and listening to that annoying buzzing sound spell disaster for a backyard cookout or that game of touch football. Oklahoma is home to over 50 different types of mosquitoes and they are most active in the spring and summer. The bites are red, round, and intensely itchy. Itching isn’t the only concern however as mosquitoes can transmit scary and sometimes life-threatening diseases. West Nile virus is one of the biggest concerns in the state which can cause symptoms ranging from headache, rash, and fever, to meningitis or neurological disease in severe cases. In addition to potential exposure to diseases for people there are concerns for your furry loved ones. Heartworms are transmitted specifically through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes feed on an infected animal and pick up microscopic larvae from the blood which is then transferred to a new host animal through the bite wound. Prevention is key to keeping your family and pets safe and free of the diseases these pests carry. So before you break out the lawn chairs and grill tongs have your yard treated to keep you and your guests from being dinner to hungry mosquitos.
