The Role Mosquitoes Play In Our Ecosystem
You don’t hear many people expressing gratitude for these irritating insects, but they do have some redeeming qualities. The benefits of mosquitoes to humans involve their roles in the ecosystem. To start, they are an essential part of the food chain because, as larvae, they are a food source for fish, and adult mosquitoes provide food for bats, frogs, and birds.
While some female mosquitoes require a blood meal to lay their eggs, males and females primarily feed on nectar and play a vital role as pollinators. As they feed on nectar, they pick up pollen that they carry to the next plant.
Despite their benefits, mosquitoes in Pompano Beach are still annoying and sometimes dangerous insects that can spread disease. Contact us at GOTBUGSIKILL today to learn how we can help to eliminate mosquitoes in your yard and keep them from returning.
The Dangerous Diseases Mosquito Bites Can Spread
While they have a few potential benefits, mosquitoes are still a public health risk and can endanger your family and pets. Just as mosquitoes carry pollen from one plant to another, they can also carry diseases from a host to the next person or animal they bite.
The following list reviews the diseases you can get from mosquitoes in Florida and some of the symptoms to watch for:
