Know Your Enemy
There are more than 3000 species of mosquitoes throughout the world, and 176 of them reside in the U.S., many calling Florida their home. Just a few years ago, Florida researchers discovered yet another species in the state. Mosquitoes choose their targets based on smell, heat, and other cues, and they’ll continue eating until they’re full. Females can live up to a month, feeding every second night.
Mosquitoes feed both at dawn and dusk, so that backyard barbeque means you’ll certainly be on the menu. Some species, though, feed day and night, so no matter when you’re outside, they’ll be ready to bite.
It’s Just a Bug Bite, Right?
A mosquito bite isn’t always as simple as an itchy welt. Instead, they can be a serious problem, both for people and animals alike. In farm animals, their bites can cause weight loss, decreased milk production, and more. When it comes to people, the bites mean the potential for disease transmission. While conditions like West Nile Virus tend to hit the headlines, they’re routinely responsible for other serious conditions, even here in the United States.
