Here in Hawaii, mosquitoes can be a real issue. We are often outdoors in environments and areas with high density populations of mosquitos. Mosquitos pose a threat to human health as they can spread diseases like dengue, malaria, and Zika virus. Although it is uncommon, some mosquito-borne illnesses can be deadly. To safeguard yourself from mosquitos bites, it is crucial to take preventive measures such as using insect repellent and wearing protective clothing. If you are facing a mosquito infestation, you may want to consider seeking pest control services to address the problem, and we here at Absolute Termite & Pest Control Hawaii are here to help.
