Longwood Residents Find Help Controlling Mosquitoes through Custom Green Lawns & Pest Control
Longwood residents know how bad mosquito problems can get, especially in the summertime when everyone wants to be outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather and here they come. Swarms of them. Buzzing, and even worse, biting. It’s only the female mosquitoes that bite, and they do that to get protein from blood to nourish their young. Unfortunately, they can also carry and spread disease.
Two of the many species, the Aedes Aegypti and Aedes Albopictus carry diseases like Chikungunya, Yellow Fever and Dengue Fever. They also carry the Zika virus that has made the news since early 2016. Workers in Florida have been busy trapping, studying and identifying the types of mosquitoes in Florida. Educating residents about not leaving standing water in yards has been a primary focus, to try to curb mosquito’s breeding grounds.

Mosquitoes love areas that are warm, damp and have a ready supply of standing water where they can lay eggs. Once eggs are laid, they’re difficult to get rid of since they attach to sides of containers and to things like ponds and swimming pools. If you provide a welcoming area, they can’t stay away. Custom Green Lawns works to make your area inhospitable to mosquitoes so they won’t want to stay.
What Is So Dangerous About Mosquito Borne Diseases?
Mosquito borne illnesses like Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever, Malaria, West Nile Virus, Chikungunya and Zika Fever have variations in the severity of symptoms. Zika for example can cause mild symptoms like rash, nausea, vomiting, fever and headache, similar to influenza. It’s the side effects of this virus that are so troubling. Pregnant women especially are at risk for their babies developing Microcephaly, a smaller than normal brain and head. Even adults can be at risk for contracting Guillian-Barre Syndrome, a disorder where the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system.
What worries the Centers For Disease Control is that the infiltration of Zika seems worse than they originally thought it was. They’ve said that Zika is now present in 2 1/2 times more places than they originally thought, in at least 30 states. It’s so concerning that U.S. health officials have asked for emergency funding to combat this virus.
Longwood Mosquito Control Can Help Protect You and Your Loved Ones
Central Florida mosquito control experts are using things like dry ice which gives off carbon dioxide gas to trap them.

Mosquitoes are then examined to help decide what neighborhoods need extra attention.
