These pests are known vectors of disease meaning they harbor disease causing organisms and viruses. Disease such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever, and Zika virus are the common ones we hear about every year. The mosquito most commonly associated with disease is the Aedes mosquito. The Aedes mosquitoes are hard to control because they lay eggs in very small breeding sites and so many have become resistant to a wide variety of pesticides. It has become common to hear about West Nile during summer and early fall on the news. Tulsa and the metro Broken Arrow area has been hit recently by mosquitoes carrying this dreaded disease and numerous Oklahoman’s die each and every year because of these pets. No amount of treatment, spraying can 100% control these pests but regular service can reduce the population thus reducing the risk.
