It’s that time of year again when the weather gets sticky and humid, and our homes get bombarded by tiny pests. You know which ones we’re talking about… MOSQUITOES!
Mosquitoes and Heartworm Disease
While we don’t have to worry about some diseases mosquitoes carry like the Zika Virus, which we are relieved hasn’t reared its ugly head in our area, there are other infections that mosquitoes can pass on– and not just to humans.
One mosquito-borne disease that can affect household pets like cats and dogs (and even horses) is Heartworm Disease. In some cases with mosquito-borne diseases, mosquitoes are just carriers of a virus. However, Heartworm Disease is not the same. mosquitoes carry the actual Heartworm larvae, and, once injected into a pet through the mosquito bite, heartworms will live and grow in large blood vessels located around the lungs.
Don’t Let Mosquitoes Take Over
Besides the danger they can pose to you, your loved ones, and your pets, mosquitoes are simply a pest. They make this time of year pretty irritating; who wants to go outside when swarms of mosquitoes are flying all over your property? Do you want to be able to enjoy your yard, spend time playing with your family, grill out, or just get outside for some fresh air?
