Preventing Mosquito-Borne Virus Outbreaks

Back in 2016, you could hardly turn on the news without seeing reports of the Zika virus. This mosquito-borne illness caused flu-like symptoms and also resulted in birth defects if a pregnant mother became infected. Over 1,400 Zika cases were confirmed in Florida in 2016, after the virus spread from the Caribbean. Luckily, the Zika outbreak seems to have passed as only 14 cases were reported in the United States in 2018 as of April. Health officials warn that now is not the time to get complacent, however - we all need to be working to proactively control the mosquito population so that another outbreak can be stopped before it has a chance to start.

So, how do we control the mosquito population in Florida? Mosquito control workers have actually started to use software to track the breeding grounds of particular species of mosquitos in order to strategically spray and keep populations in control. For everyday people trying to protect their homes and businesses, MosquitoNix® is one of the leading mosquito and pest control and prevention companies in the country with a vast array of services to choose from. To find the right solution for you, let's take a closer look at some of these services.

These misting systems will be set up around the property and will provide a perimeter of protection to keep your outdoor space the beautiful haven it should be.

Keep your guests focused on the fun and not on the pests with a QuickNix™ fogging treatment - these treatments are perfect when you need a fast solution that will take care of both the adult mosquitos as well as those still in the larvae stage.

That’s how a mosquito can be infected with a disease by biting an organism, then become a vector and spread that disease the next time it bites — and exchanges fluid with — another living organism. Infections coming from these airborne pests are passed into the blood.
