The mosquito has quite an awful reputation. It has been called the most deadly animal in the world, and is attributed with more deaths on the planet than any other creature. With a single bite the mosquito can wreak great havoc by spreading devastating illnesses like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya and even Heartworm in pets.
And ticks are just as serious a threat if not even more so. They can easily travel across outdoor landscapes, and tend too latch onto pets that then enter our homes. Ticks then land on a human host, spreading Lyme disease, Erlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other tick-borne illnesses.
