Mosquitoes are pests that plague Omaha yards during the warmer months of spring and summer. It's difficult to enjoy time outdoors without encountering mosquitoes and their itchy bites. They are also one of the most dangerous pests and one of the hardest to get rid of. It is important to get rid of mosquitoes on your property fast and early before they turn into a bigger problem for you and your home. Beeline Pest Control provides effective pest control in Omaha to deal with these common, dangerous pests.

What Is The Purpose Of Mosquitoes In Omaha?

As with many other insects and pests, it's often difficult for people to find a good reason for mosquitoes to be around. Homeowners strive to keep mosquitoes away from their yards using a variety of methods, making it hard to see why they even exist in the first place. If these pests are so dangerous and annoying, why don’t we get rid of them and live in a world without mosquitoes?

While these pests and many others that are dangerous have no place in your home and on your property putting you in danger, outside of that, they are essential to a functioning ecosystem. Mosquitoes are pollinators and also act as a major food source for other animals such as fish, frogs, other insects, and birds. If there were no mosquitoes left in the world, agriculture would collapse and the world would not be the same.

The Diseases Mosquitoes Can Transmit

Though mosquitoes are an essential part of the ecosystem, they are also the animal that kills the most people every year. Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes are responsible for causing more than one million deaths worldwide each and every year. Some of the major diseases that these pests can potentially transmit are:

  • Zika virus
  • Tularemia
  • Encephalitis
  • Yellow fever
  • Chikungunya
  • Dengue
  • Malaria
  • West Nile virus

Many of these diseases are less likely to show up in the United States, but the sheer potential that mosquitoes have for spreading harmful pathogens makes them one of the most dangerous pests. This potential leaves many trying to find ways to repel mosquitoes, but the single best thing that you can do when dealing with these pests is to get the help of the pest control professionals at Beeline Pest Control.
