Although the humidity makes summer days feel hotter, the climate in Vero Beach is mild with little variation between the annual high and low average temperatures. The dampness of the peninsula state and its plentiful vegetation make it a good place for mosquitoes to thrive. When these pests start appearing on your property, call MosquitoNix of South Florida.
Problems With Mosquitoes in Vero Beach
Mosquitoes are parasitic pests that bite humans. Some types of mosquitoes carry harmful diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika virus, and encephalitis. West Nile virus may or may not produce symptoms. In severe cases, long-lasting fatigue and flu-like symptoms may be present. Zika virus does not usually send a person to the hospital, and many people have mild symptoms or no symptoms. It may be confused with a cold or a short-lived stomach virus. Zika is harmful to pregnant women since they can transmit it to their baby.
Since mosquitoes breed quickly, an infestation on your property will only grow and create a bigger health hazard to you and your family. Mosquitoes can ruin your outdoor summer gatherings with friends if they are not removed beforehand. The pests are attracted to any source of standing water. This includes uncovered pools, hot tubs, birdbaths, fountains, landscaping ponds, pet dishes and even leaky sprinkler heads. A space about the size of a bottle cap is sufficient enough for some mosquitoes to breed. Females may live up to a couple months, and they may lay 100 or more eggs every few days. Males live about a week.
