Although mosquitoes are very small and quite common, they are actually the deadliest animals in the world. Mosquitos can carry a number of serious diseases, and according to recent reports, these diseases are on the rise in many parts of the United States. A few of the serious illnesses that are commonly spread by mosquito’s are as follows:
West Nile Virus – As of yet, no vaccine has been developed to combat this disease, which has an incubation period of 8 to 10 days. Symptoms include headache, fever, sweating, weakness and pain.
Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEEV) – This virus is rapidly spreading in the U.S. The disease causes headache, fever and inflammation of the brain that eventually leads to seizures, brain damage or death.
Heartworm in dogs- Transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. There’s no other way dogs get heartworms. And there’s no way to tell if a mosquito is infected.
