Conway, Arkansas Mosquito Control

Mosquito Exterminator in Conway, Arkansas

Is there anything more annoying than trying to have a relaxing rest in your back yard at the end of a long hard day and having that constant buzzing in your ear and the sting of the bite of a mosquito? You know are being attacked by the deadliest animal in the world. 

According to the World Health Organization, ”Their ability to carry and spread disease to humans causes millions of deaths every year. In 2015 malaria alone caused 438,000 deaths” These diseases are not limited to underdeveloped countries. In the United States, The Center for Disease Control reported that the most common virus spread by mosquitoes is West Nile virus. There are also less common viruses spread by mosquitoes in the United States, including the Zika Virus, La Crosse encephalitis and St. Louis encephalitis. These diseases should not be taken lightly as they can cause severe illness and even death. What is scary is that symptoms may appear to be mild like nausea, fever, and headaches and may seem like the garden variety cold or flu. Sometimes the symptoms don’t appear until it is too late. Therein lies the problem. We take for granted that the little sting and accompanying itching is just part of life, but the CDC tracks the diseases that are spread by mosquitoes. In some people such as the elderly, children, or those with compromised immune systems, mosquito bites may cause a severe allergic reaction.

If you have bites that are the size of a quarter or larger, you may be having an allergic reaction. Other and more serious symptoms may be:

  • Bruises near the site of the bite or hives at or around the bite
  • Lesions
  • Lymphangitis, or inflammation of the lymph system
  • Large area of itching
  • In extreme cases, anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that can cause swelling in the throat and cut off the airway and wheezing; medical attention is needed immediately.
