Mosquitoes are annoying and dangerous pests that pose serious health problems to your family and pets.
A disease vector is a living organism that can transfer pathogens to another host. Insects make up the majority of disease vectors. Mosquitoes are the cause of more human illnesses than any other animal, which makes them one of the most dangerous disease vectors. What makes us itchy when they bite is their saliva. There’s a blood thinning agent in their saliva, which they inject while biting. Saliva is also how they transfer viruses.
