Mosquito-Borne Disease List Grows


Mosquitoes can make it hard for you and your family to enjoy being outside this summer. In addition to the itchy welts they leave you with, these bugs can also spread diseases. Find out more about why you should get Farmingdale mosquito control services to keep these pests away this season.

West Nile Virus

This is among the more common diseases that mosquitoes carry in the NYC and NJ area. West Nile virus can cause serious symptoms that require immediate medical care in a small number of cases. This disease typically causes mild symptoms, such as fever, headaches and body aches, that typically go away on their own.

Zika Virus

Zika virus is another infectious disease that mosquitoes have been spreading in parts of North America. This virus tends to cause mild symptoms in most people, but it can lead to serious birth defects when pregnant women are infected.

Chikungunya Virus

This virus has been found in a few cases in NJ, although the people who had it had recently traveled to areas where this disease is more common. Chikungunya can cause severe joint pain and lead to more serious complications in rare cases.
