Mosquitoes can ruin fun like no other creature on Earth. They annoy, irritate, suck blood and pretty much make everybody miserable. But there’s more to these nasty little pests than irritation and that’s the ever growing possibility that someone will transmit a disease. Not only some minor nuisance of a illness either. There are severe, perhaps deadly consequences from the perceived innocent bite of a mosquito. West Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) are two of the most common and they’re becoming more widespread and more dangerous each year.
Why is that?
Every time a pest population is subjected to a synthetic, toxic pesticide, a specific number survive because of some super-genetic resistance. This scientific phenomenon is named Pesticide Resistance. Due to Pesticide Resistance, every year fewer synthetic pesticide products are effective for control.
But how does Pesticide Resistance increase the cases of West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis? These super mosquitoes are resistant to poisons and in exactly the same line of reasoning can more efficiently transport diseases that affect their victims, but not them as a species. Pesticides are being used to lessen the virility, strength and survivability of mosquitoes but when they overcome these setbacks they’re more powerful, heartier and better equipped to carry vector diseases that don’t affect them.
By using artificial pesticides, we are producing resistant’Super Mosquitoes’ that are increasingly hard to control and that are getting more powerful carriers of diseases that affect humans. Great…
So the first step – cease using synthetic pesticides!
And that does not mean lighting a couple of citronella candles either. There are quite powerful, green products that use all organic ingredients to provide excellent natural pest control for mosquitoes. An integral ingredient is cedar as cedar is deadly to pests yet harmless to people, animals or the environment.
These aggravating blood-suckers are bothersome enough with no fear of disease so be certain that the avoidance of a mosquito bite is powerful AND safe as there is tons of danger already!
