As we come up to Mosquito Control Awareness Week June 26 through July 2, enjoy the summer and protect yourselves from mosquitos.
As mosquitos bite, they can transfer diseases. These diseases may infect you or your pets, and may include West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, or dog heartworm.
While many mosquitos may not carry disease, the red dot which is left behind is caused by an allergic reaction to the mosquito’s saliva.
To reduce the risk of mosquito bites, follow the three D’s of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA).
