Today we’re quizzing you on some common mosquito myths. Mosquitos are particularly annoying pests because of their bite, and they’re flying insects! Their populations can be hard to control.

One false myth we want to debunk is that what you eat impacts whether mosquitos will bite you. This is not true- mosquitos want you no matter what you eat. Another is that all mosquitos carry disease. Only a small fraction of mosquito populations carry diseases like West Nile or Malaria.

Even so, mosquito bites are itchy and annoying. Reducing standing water around your property and regular pest control treatments can help prevent them from moving in. If you need pest control services or have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 318-286-0967 or message us today.
