The hot and humid weather in Marietta, Georgia, offers an ideal environment in which mosquitoes can breed and grow. The proximity of Sope Creek also adds to the risk of mosquito infestations in this area. While city officials do offer a limited program designed to help homeowners eliminate breeding grounds for these dangerous pests, most families require added help in managing the risks associated with mosquitoes in Marietta and the Atlanta metropolitan area. Understanding the threat that mosquito infestations pose to residents can provide added insights into the value of proactive treatments to eliminate these insects early in their life cycles.
Serious Health Risks
Mosquito bites are associated with a number of medical issues, including the following serious illnesses:
- West Nile Virus is an infection that can cause encephalitis, meningitis and other serious side effects in a small percentage of those who contract the disease. No vaccines exist for this infection, and there is no known cure.
- Cases of Chikungunya have been identified in Florida. Spread by mosquito bites, this illness can cause serious joint pain, headaches and rashes in affected individuals. While most people recover in about a week, others may experience symptoms for months after the initial mosquito bite.
Even for those who do not develop serious illnesses, the itching and allergic response commonly experienced after a mosquito bite can cause significant discomfort for several days and may result in an infection if the skin is accidentally broken. Taking steps to address mosquito infestations quickly and effectively can be the best defense against these medical risks for you and your family.
