Mosquitoes are known for detecting body heat and the carbon dioxide humans’ exhale. They can carry several diseases including Malaria, West Nile and Yellow Fever. Oftentimes, they are mistaken for flies due to the buzzing noise they create by the rapid beating of their wings.
Once they have entered the home, mosquitoes can lay eggs if there is any stagnant water around. They are seen as pests to those enjoying the outdoors, both at home and in commercial areas, because of the continuous biting and itching that they can cause. The pest control professionals at AEL Pest Solutions can help remove these pests from your home or business, both indoors and outdoors.

- Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers.
- Clear roof gutters of debris.
- Clean pet water dishes regularly.
- Check and empty children’s toys.
- Repair leaky outdoor faucets.
- Change the water in bird baths at least once a week.

West Nile Virus
West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne virus. Similar to other mosquito-borne encephalitis, it is transmitted to mammals including horses and man by infected mosquitoes.
West Nile virus has historically been found in Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and was first detected in the United States in 1999 in New York City. In 2012, 48 states reported West Nile virus infections in people, birds or mosquitoes. A total of 5,387 cases of West Nile virus were reported in people, including 243 deaths. Severe symptoms may include high fever, disorientation, tremors, coma, paralysis, and death. Fatalities are more likely in people over the age of 50 and those with weakened immune systems. The time between the mosquito bite and the onset of illness, known as the incubation period, ranges from 5-15 days in humans.
Don’t suffer outdoors by fighting bites from mosquitoes, which in turn can be brought into one’s home or business. They not only make enjoying the outdoors uncomfortable, but can then enter one’s home or business and reproduce rapidly. Take control immediately by calling the pest control professionals at AEL Pest Solutions. You’ll be glad you did.
