Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with welts all over your body from being bitten by buzzing little blood suckers? The culprit during the summer months is likely to be a mosquito, or rather, “mozzie”.
Jim’s Pest Control is one of the few companies in Newcastle that can offer a real solution to these problem pests. We have treatments, such as undetectable barriers, which are placed where the mosquitoes land to rest.
The mozzies simply ingest some of the chemical, which quickly finishes them off. Having a mosquito-free summer is why so many Newcastle residents call Jim’s Pest Control for a professional mosquito treatment.
Mosquitoes can transmit a number of serious human diseases. In NSW, some types of mosquitoes can transmit viruses such as Ross River and Barmah Forest and, rarely, the virus that causes Murray Valley encephalitis.
Why Is Mosquito Control Important?
Overseas travellers visiing the Hunter Valley may be at risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, chikungunya or Zika.
While vaccines are available for some diseases (e.g. yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis) and chemoprophylaxis medicine can help prevent malaria, all travellers should also use repellents and other general protective measures to avoid mosquito bites.
However, seeking help from a professional mosquito exterminator should greatly reduce the chances of problems.
