Mosquitos are easily one of the least popular summertime pests and put a damper on outdoor fun. They are generally small in size with six long, thin legs, an elongated body, and two long, translucent wings. These are both a nuisance and a health risk, as they quickly infest outdoor areas and bite humans in order to draw blood. A mosquito bite usually results in persistent itching, minor swelling, and redness but can also transmit blood-borne pathogens, such as malaria. The risk of a mosquito bite can be greatly reduced by using a bodily repellant spray and burning citronella candles. The most effective approach is to allow a pest control professional to develop and implement a treatment plan.
