With the increased prevalence of West Nile Virus, mosquitoes continue to be, not only a summer nuisance pest but also, a major health threat.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), mosquito-borne infections have appeared across the United States in recent years, which makes avoiding mosquito nesting/breeding sites and eliminating standing water in or around the home even more important to the protection of public health.

In addition, to the potential for West Nile Virus, mosquitoes can also cause itchy, unsightly marks as well as severe allergic reactions in human beings.
