Interesting Mosquito Facts
Mosquitos are most commonly known for their irritating, itchy & sometimes dangerous bites. These bites are a means to suck their victim’s blood in order to provide a source of protein for their eggs. There are over 3,000 different species of mosquitoes, but only a few are known to transmit illness. Mosquito control includes many types of different methods, including elimination of breeding environments, and protective barriers such as window screens and nets.
