What is the most deadly animal in the world? Mosquitoes


Mosquito

Mosquitoes carry and spread disease, making them a threat to humans everywhere they’re found. Unfortunately, more than half the world’s human population lives in a place where mosquitoes are present—and mosquitoes take full advantage of these opportunities. This flying insect is responsible for more than one million deaths a year. This death toll is far more than the deaths caused by sharks, lions, and other so-called dangerous animals. Read on to learn why mosquitoes are a such a dangerous animal and how mosquito control can help stop them from coming for you.

The Diseases They Spread

  • West Nile virus
  • Zika virus
  • Malaria
  • Dengue
  • Encephalitis
  • Heartworm (for dogs)

 The Collateral Damage

  • Mosquitoes are present on every continent except Antarctica, where they are unable to survive.
  • Malaria is the most common cause of mosquito-caused deaths. WHO (the World Health Organization) claims that there were 438,000 malaria-related deaths just in 2015.
  • The Illinois Department of Public Health states that mosquito-bourne diseases are responsible for more deaths than all the wars in history.

How to Protect Yourself

Take the few precautions to take to protect yourself from mosquito bites:

  • Because mosquitoes want to chomp on your flesh, cover yourself by wearing long sleeves and long pants.
  • While indoors, keep windows closed (or open with screens to keep mosquitoes from entering).
  • Use mosquito repellants to prevent bites. According to the CDC, the FDA has approved the following: DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or para-menthane-diol are all.
  • Eliminate standing water on your property to prevent creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
  • Invest in a mosquito barrier program to keep mosquitoes from penetrating your property’s perimeter.
