Never disregard the mosquito bite because the next time you get bitten, you might not be so lucky. And today especially, at the first sign of a mosquito on your homestead or in the yard on your business premises, don’t slap that mosquito, just chase it from your arm. More importantly, make the call for professional mosquito treatment apex work as soon as possible. It’s not a good idea to squat the mosquito dead on your arm.
Because as you do that, there’ll likely be blood. And while the mosquito may have already bitten you (it usually does not feel like more than a scratch), that small spot of blood may not be yours. It belongs to someone else and it may already be infected. Also note that if the mosquito only had all its eyes on you, it could be infected as well. The most common and known disease that it spreads is that of malaria.
Fortunately, most public and private hospitals already have a vaccine against malaria and by now, if you’re widely travelled, it’s common knowledge to you that some countries require you to have anti-malarial treatment before you enter their borders. But currently, no hospital, no country has a vaccine, a cure, for this virus. In case you’ve just crawled out from under a rock it’s the 21st century version of the novel Corona virus, otherwise also known as COVID-19.
How does this have anything to do with one puny mosquito? Plenty, actually. History shoes that mosquitoes have been known carriers of this virus as well. And not just mosquitoes, but ticks and fleas as well. So now you know, the next time you see a mosquito, there’s to be no mucking about. Just call the fuzz already.
