Mosquito-Borne Diseases

Mosquito Information

Many people believe that mosquitoes are simply annoying insects that bite and leave an itchy bump that will simply disappear in a few days. What they don't realize is that these tiny biting insects can carry deadly diseases that cause thousands of illnesses and deaths each year. With the increase in international travel, no one is immune to mosquito-borne diseases.

The health risks from mosquito diseases can be avoided with effective mosquito control systems. Mosquito Magnet® Traps are scientifically proven to kill mosquitoes, as well as interrupt their breeding cycle. This offers your family and pets long-term protection against mosquito-borne diseases.
