Summer temperatures have returned to Naples and with them, the season of the mosquito. The past couple evenings, out on the pickle-ball court practicing my serve, I found myself swatting at these pests a bit too often.
A little about mosquitoes; They’re considered the world’s most dangerous creature, responsible for more fatalities than any other member of the wildlife family (including sharks, although Shark Week would have us believe otherwise). While mosquito bites are usually just an itchy nuisance, they can spread West Nile Virus, which first surfaced in Florida in 2001. While West Nile typically causes mild flu symptoms, it can cause more severe symptoms in individuals with a compromised immune system. Lately we’ve been hearing quite a bit about the Zika Virus too and here’s a link to the Zika Virus CDC page.
It’s better to be safe than sorry, a quick and affordable home mosquito pest control service can help protect from this potential threat. All that said you’ll find me on some pickleball court tomorrow evening pests or no. Our service area covers Collier County and Southern Lee County. We offer commercial mosquito control too.
