Summer is near and mosquitos are here! They’re annoying, they’re dangerous and they’re everywhere. So what can you do? Educate yourself on the dangers of mosquitos and how to best prevent them overtaking your home.

Why is Mosquito Prevention Important?

Mosquitos are capable of transmitting over 10 different diseases by a simple bite. From the infamous Zika and West Nile viruses to heartworms in dogs and cats, mosquito bites have the potential to do more than just ruin a barbeque. Protecting your home from a mosquito infestation means protecting your family and your pets.
