Mosquito control manages the population of mosquitoes to reduce their damage to human health, economies, and enjoyment. Mosquito control is a vital public-health practice throughout the world and especially in the tropics because mosquitoes spread many diseases, such as malaria and the Zika virus.
Fleas cause nuisance and distress to pet owners and occasionally inhabitants of newly occupied houses where animals or birds have been resident. A very through vacuum and clean though is required before a successful residual insecticidal treatment is carried out to the premises. All areas should be treated including soft furnishings and sometimes curtains too. Animals showing signs of current infestation should be attended to by a veterinary surgeon.
