DISEASES SPREAD BY INSECTS
Other Diseases Spread by Insects
There’s nothing pleasant about a mosquito bite or other insect bite, but beyond the initial sting, residual itch, and resulting allergic reaction for some, a mosquito, tick, or flea bite can deliver something much worse. Insect and mosquito-borne diseases and illnesses are a cause for concern in all parts of the US and abroad. While some of these diseases are more prevalent in certain areas, the risk of contracting any one of them is motivation enough to explore insect and mosquito control and prevention options.
The Zika Virus has become a common news topic since the outbreak of the virus in the beginning of 2016. Zika is spread by infected mosquitoes, but there have been no confirmed cases of infected mosquitoes in the US. For more information on Zika, visit our Zika page.
