With mosquito season upon us, everyone is itching to find ways to avoid these pesky bugs and their even more agitating bites. In order to take the most preventative measures possible, it's important to conduct your research. Alternative EarthCare discusses four things you should know about mosquitoes:

1. They can carry diseases. Although the majority of mosquitoes will cause only a minor bump at the site of the bite, it is possible for them to carry diseases. The most common diseases transmitted by mosquitoes are West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue fever, and more recently, Zika virus.

2. Mosquito bites are preventable. Although it may seem like we cannot escape these irritating pests, their bites are actually entirely preventable. Contact a professional organic mosquito spraying company to kill off any mosquitoes that are living in or around your yard. If they stay away from your home, they will stay away from you.

3. They are attracted to sweat and carbon dioxide. Research shows that mosquitoes have preferences, which is why some people seem to get bitten more than others. Avoid exercising outside because mosquitoes are attracted to the chemicals in human sweat and the carbon dioxide that we exhale.

4. Some people are allergic mosquito bites. Allergic reactions to mosquito bites go beyond the itchy bump at the site of the bite. For those with allergies, they can experience blistering rashes, excessive swelling, and even an asthma attack. If you suspect you may be one of these people, see an allergist immediately and learn the preventative measures you can take to reduce the mosquito population in your yard.
