Mosquitoes

More than just an annoyance, the mosquito is the deadliest animal on the planet. Over one million people are killed by mosquito-borne diseases each year globally. In the US, we tend to be less aware of the deadly role mosquitoes play, but over 1,000 Americans each year experience serious illness or death as a result of a mosquito bite.

Sadly, with just one bite the mosquito can cause great havoc by spreading devastating illnesses like Zika Virus, West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya and even Heartworm in your pets.
