Mosquitoes, in addition to biting painfully and flying around noisily, are a serious threat to human health. These tiny insects spread numerous diseases that include dengue fever, Barmah Forest Virus, Australian encephalitis, and Ross River Virus among others. It’s because of their ability to propagate numerous pathogens that these pests are considered some of the most dangerous in the world.
Pestrol offers a huge range of mosquito control products, such as mosquito traps for different size backyards, all-natural mosquito repellents, and other solutions. Click below to get taken to the specific Mosquito product section.
The Australian Mosquito
According to scientific research, there are said to be more than 300 different species of mosquito inhabiting Australia. So, as you can see, the term “Australian mosquito” is very broad and covers a lot of different species.
However, out of 300 or more known species, only a select few are considered to be a major problem for Australians; the ones that can spread disease. Apart from that, mosquitoes are mostly just highly annoying.
The average Australian mosquito has a lifespan of only around 2 to 3 weeks, but they are prolific breeders anywhere that still bodies of water are present.
