WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!

What Happens When a Mosquito Bites

Ever wonder why we don’t feel a mosquito while it’s biting (although we most definitely feel it after)? Here’s what happens when a mosquito bites:

First, the mosquito lands on your skin and slathers saliva around which works like an antiseptic, numbing the area, so you do not notice the mosquito attack. This is what causes the itchy, red bumps. Then the mosquito uses it’s serrated mandibles to carve a little hole in your skin, allowing it to probe around with its proboscis searching for a blood vessel. When it hits one, the mosquito can suck two to three times its weight in blood.

Besides being annoying, mosquitoes carry diseases that can be deadly. There have already been reports of  West Nile in Harris County. Most likely, the carriers of the disease came from a Culex or Aedes mosquito, both common mosquito breeds in the Houston area. The only sure way to protect yourself and your pets are to stay indoors, but that’s no fun.  Enjoy your yard again and call the Houston mosquito experts – Mosquito Squad Houston – to rid your yard of mosquitoes for good.
