What Types Of Diseases Can Be Spread By Mosquito Bites?
You may feel mosquito pest control services for your home could be just one of the waste expenses, however, the truth is different. Professional pest control services for mosquitoes assures protection against the mosquito colony. If you belong to the other side of the group, who believe mosquitoes are nothing more than an insect who can just irritate you with their buzzing habits, here are a few truth bombs for you. In this comprehensive guide, we have listed the serious diseases that can be caused through mosquito bites. Not to your surprise, mosquitoes are capable enough to carry and transmit diseases.
Chikungunya: Chikungunya is a virus transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Common symptoms of this virus include fever, joint and muscle pain, headache, nausea, tiredness and a rash. The World Health Organization suggests that onset of illness usually occurs 4-8 days after the bite of an infected mosquito (but can range from 2-12 days). Although there is no specific antiviral drug available, a trained medical practitioner can treat this condition.
Malaria: Malaria is a virus spread by the anopheles mosquito. The common signs of malaria include fever, headache and vomiting. As per the WHO’s report causes an estimated 219 million cases, and results in more than 400,000 deaths every year globally. Note: Malaria could be fatal in children under the age of 5 years.
Dengue: Commonly found in Africa, North and South America, Asia and Europe, the Aedes aegypti mosquito are the main culprit behind the transmission of dengue. The symptoms of dengue include high fever, severe headache, pain in muscles and bones, and mild bleeding from the nose and gums, among others.
Fact-time: The WHO claims that dengue is the most prevalent viral infection transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes with an estimated 96 million symptomatic cases and an estimated 40,000 deaths every year.
Zika: Although this virus is not as prominent in India as the above-stated, it can be spread via the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. The symptoms are mild and often with no symptoms. The signs include fever, joint muscle pain or rash. There's no vaccine to prevent the virus.
Fact-time: It is said that India reports less than five thousand cases of Zika virus. It is believed that Zika can trigger paralysis (Guillain-Barré Syndrome), and birth defects in pregnant women’s unborn.
Yellow Fever: The most common symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, muscle and back pain, lack of appetite and vomiting. Although India reports less than five thousand cases of Yellow fever per year, the WHO says the virus is endemic in tropical areas of Africa and Central and South America. However, the good news is there is a preventative vaccine for this health condition.
Along with these, there are a couple of other diseases that are spread by mosquito bites, but are irrelevant in the context of India’s geography. Now, after reading about the fatal diseases these flying beats can transmit, the question - how do they do that ? - may make rounds in the minds of many of you. Allow us to break down that for you.
First, via carbon dioxide, body odor and temperature, these flying beasts detect their host.
A mosquito’s mouth has six parts, and she (we know the mosquito is she because only female mosquitoes bite humans) stab two tubes into the skin: one to inject an enzyme that inhibits blood clotting; the other to suck blood into her body.
After a good blood meal, she secrate her saliva.
When a mosquito feeds in a method called sip feeding, more people are exposed to infection. (For the unversed, in sip feeding method, a mosquito has a blood meal from multiple hosts instead of one.)
