Mosquitoes Control and Prevention
Mosquitoes are more than a source of itchy bites. They can be a serious health threat to your family, dogs, and horses.
The World Health Organization classifies mosquitoes as the most deadly animal family in the world because they spread malaria, yellow fever and other deadly diseases. In south central Pennsylvania, mosquitoes can spread the West Nile and Zika viruses.
