Danville Residents Hate Mosquitos
You may think of mosquitoes merely as being annoying pests, but these insects can pose a danger to you and your family. In fact, as mosquito season is upon us, it’s a good idea to get the facts about mosquito control.
More than 30,000 people have contracted West Nile Virus since 1999, according to a recent article at Realty Times, and mosquitoes carry this potentially dangerous disease. Mosquito season usually occurs between April and October, with the insects breeding July through September.
You should regularly inspect your property and eliminate any standing supplies of water, such as birdbaths, flowerpots and children’s toys, as mosquitoes seek water in which to lay their eggs.
Wear insect repellant, long pants and long-sleeved shirts to keep the insects from biting. Be aware that mosquitoes are more active one hour before and after dusk and dawn.
