Zika Virus: The virus has been definitively linked to mosquitoes. The virus causes mild symptoms to the person who is first infected such as a fever, headache, muscle aches, and a rash. However, once inside a person, it can cause serious problems down the road and has been linked to birth defects such as microcephaly or to illnesses such as Guillain-Barre syndrome. Symptoms typically last for 2–7 days. Most people with Zika virus infection do not develop symptoms. Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause infants to be born with congenital malformations.
West Nile Virus: A virus that appeared in the United States in 1999 and is one of the arboviruses that mosquitoes transmit. West Nile can affect people differently and can lead to encephalitis and meningitis and become a serious risk to humans.
How to reduce mosquitoes:
- The best way to control mosquitoes is to prevent or minimize mosquito breeding sites with pest control applications.
- When indoors, use air conditioning, window screens or insecticide-treated mosquito netting to keep mosquitoes out of the home.
- Empty or routinely change standing water from containers such as flower pots, pet dishes, and bird baths.
- Empty water that has collected in children’s toys.
- Weather permitting, wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors.
- Clean up debris such as leaf piles or decaying logs.
- Plant mosquito-repelling plants
