Alternative Earthcare, 3 Facts Regarding Mosquitoes

There's no denying the fact that most people dislike mosquitoes. They leave unsightly bite marks, seemingly out of nowhere, and it can become rather difficult to protect oneself against them. For this reason, Alternative Earthcare and other companies take the time to treat various lawns so that these pests stand a lesser chance of making their presence felt. Here are 3 useful facts regarding mosquitoes, so that you can better protect yourself as well.

One of the things to know is that its female - not male - mosquitoes that bite. When female mosquitoes land on their hosts, they extract blood, which results in the bite marks that we've come to associate with said pests. On the other hand, male mosquitoes gain their nutrition from plants, feasting on their nectar. This is something that many people don't know, but it's an important fact that tick control specialists can relay to you all the same.

There's also the matter of how bites result in different reactions. Even though the bites of mosquitoes are relatively harmless in the long run, this isn't the case for everyone. As a matter of fact, it's not far-fetched to assume that these can result in severe headaches and fevers for those who lack strong immune systems. Medical treatment is essential under these circumstances, as companies such as Alternative Earthcare can attest.

Finally, you should know that mosquitoes are quite easy to pinpoint, even if you don't believe so. Keep in mind that their wings flap relatively quickly - from 300 to 600 times per second - which creates the buzzing noise we associate such pests with. They also travel slowly at around 1 mile per hour, so it's not like they can't be seen with the human eye. If anything, this will aid you in being able to track them with ease.

It's easy to see why people would like to protect themselves against mosquitoes, but this doesn't make the aforementioned pests any less interesting. As a matter of fact, this level of knowledge can go a long way in ensuring that their bites aren't left on the human body. Of course, this doesn't mean that you're unable to learn more. If anything, a greater degree of knowledge can go a long way, as far as your own well-being is concerned.
