MOSQUITOES & TICKS: TEENY, TINY SILENT DISEASE-CARRIERS.
The mosquito is not only annoying, but also has quite an awful reputation. It has been called the biggest killer on the planet and the most deadly animal in the world. With just one bite it can cause great havoc by spreading devastating illnesses like West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria, Chikungunya, Zika and even Heartworm in pets. In addition to being annoying and deadly, the mosquito is a resilient and persistent insect that is not going away anytime soon. In fact, according to Zion Research, the global mosquito repellent market is predicted to reach five billion dollars by 2022!
Let’s face it, ticks are just creepy! While mosquitoes may pester us, just the mention of a tick can make our skin crawl. Ticks are a serious a threat as they easily travel across outdoor landscapes and latch onto pets that enter our homes and then land on a human host, spreading Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and other tick-borne illnesses. The threat and danger of ticks is growing as evidenced in a report by Transparency Market Research predicting the global flea and tick repellent market to grow to 1.34 billion dollars by 2025.
