We all know how annoying can mosquitos be. They have the power to take away your peace especially in the summers and are capable of transmitting diseases that can kill more than a million people each year and infect more than a billion, causing pain that’s intolerable, blindness, and other serious effects. Hence, these are just a few reasons why mosquitoes are often called one of the most dangerous animals on the planet.
Speaking of which, there are more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes and only a few of those feed on human blood. However, up until now, there has been no medicine or vaccine invented for these fatal diseases but the treatment, in general, involves keeping the patients hydrated.
The breeding of mosquitos is unbelievable!
These dangerous mosquitoes can breed in a teaspoon of water, and their eggs can be found in places you wouldn’t even imagine. Can you imagine their eggs in tin cans, bottles, jugs, flower pots, tanks, tubs, drains? Do you know what this means? This means that mosquitoes can lay eggs in nearly anything which can hold only a few drops of water!

Mosquitos hate cleanliness! And with the summer heat ready to attack us and feast on human blood, it is now the right time to take preventive measures to avoid them.
