Mosquito Control in Dayton and the Miami Valley
If there's anything that people in Dayton agree about, it's that we hate mosquitoes. Few things ruin an outdoor event like a wedding, family reunion, get-together, or even a simple evening relaxing outside after work than an attack of ravenous, blood-sucking mosquitoes.
There are 59 different species of mosquitoes in Ohio, and most of them can be found in the Dayton area. Because ours is a temperate climate, mosquitoes have to get all their work of feeding and breeding done during the warmer months. This means that during their feeding times, they can be voracious, homing in on any available host to satisfy their hunger while they can. It's a matter of survival for them.
Even worse, just in case the sheer annoyance they cause weren't reason enough to hate mosquitoes, a few mosquito species can also transmit serious diseases like Eastern equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, West Nile virus, and most recently, Zika virus, as well as other less-common but still-serious diseases.
Because mosquitoes can spread diseases from people who are infected to people who aren't, you don't even need to come in contact with a sick person to catch mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquitoes can also spread diseases that aren't usually encountered in Ohio if they bite someone who recently returned from a country where a disease is common. That's how Zika arrived in the United States.
