What Happens To Your Blood In A Mosquito?

These pests are known to show up on your property as big groups of mosquitoes, and it can be especially hard to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard. It can seem like no matter what you do these bloodsuckers will just not go away. They thrive in warm and wet environments, which are not rare in Melissa.

Unfortunately, we do not live in a world without mosquitoes, so these pests are going to be something that you will have to deal with at some point, and often. Part of this reality is that mosquitoes will suck your blood, and they use that blood as food to support them as they reproduce. The only types of mosquitoes that actually consume your blood are female mosquitoes, while the male mosquitoes feed on flowers.

If all mosquitoes stuck to flowers, then they would not be as big of a problem. The issue is that they don’t, and in the process where they are consuming your blood, potentially dangerous viruses can be transmitted.

How Does A Mosquito Help Spread Viruses?

In a world without mosquitoes, we wouldn’t have to worry about viruses such as:

  • Zika virus
  • Malaria
  • West Nile virus
  • Dengue
  • Chikungunya
  • Yellow fever
  • Encephalitis
  • Tularemia

Some of these are rarer and more seasonal than others, but all are incredibly dangerous, and it is important to avoid them, but that means avoiding groups of mosquitoes, which can be very difficult. Mosquitoes spread viruses by biting infected individuals, and then they can be carriers of these viruses and spread them when they bite another person. This will happen by the virus spreading into your blood.

It is important to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard because they can be from almost anywhere and carry almost anything. Having no mosquitoes in or around your home is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from these diseases, but that job is easier said than done.

Can You Repel Mosquitoes With Sound?

Because mosquitoes are so persistent, many have come up with a variety of ways to try to have no mosquitoes in their yard. Some have come up with smells to put around your home to keep mosquitoes away, others stick to bug sprays with DEET to stop them from biting, but this does not get rid of them in the first place.

Some have even come up with the idea that they can use high-frequency sounds to keep mosquitoes away. They are one of the few insects that are able to hear, but there is no scientific evidence that these methods are effective at keeping mosquitoes away. The best thing you can do is remove stagnant and standing water on your property and call the professionals at EcoArmor Pest Defense.
