Ticks and mosquitoes are out this year in full force. And this year more than ever they’re coming down into the populated areas of the GTA. What used to only be a problem up in cottage country is now becoming more and more of a problem in the city. And with the risk of Lyme disease and now Zika virus not too far away, now is a good time to educate yourself about ticks and mosquitoes.
They are indeed! Now, a mosquito probably isn’t going to bite you to death, but more deaths are associated with mosquitoes than any other animal on Earth because of all of the different diseases that mosquitoes can carry and transmit. Some of the diseases that mosquitoes carry include malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, encephalitis and now the Zika virus, all of which can be fatal to humans.
It’s no surprise that mosquitoes bite humans for our blood, but do you know why they need our blood? Mosquitoes need protein for their eggs, so when you look down and a mosquito is biting you and sucking your blood, you can be sure it’s a female. Male mosquitoes prefer the sweet nectar of flowers for their food.
Ever get the feeling that mosquitoes just know where you are and will hone in on you no matter how far away you are? Well, mosquitoes are good at detecting carbon dioxide, which is in the air we exhale, because things that exhale carbon dioxide are usually a good supply of blood. A mosquito can detect carbon dioxide from up to 75 feet away! And not all mosquitoes seek human blood – some different types of mosquitoes bite animals and amphibians only and are no bother to humans.
