With a small-town feel, Milton, Georgia, is a distinct community that offers good quality of life and beautiful topography. Like all communities in Georgia, it’s warm, and humid temperatures provide an opportunity to be outside almost year-round. But warm, humid air also brings pests like mosquitoes ready to terrorize your every outdoor move.
Mosquitoes are more than a nuisance! They carry serious diseases that can make you, your family, and your pets sick. Investing in a mosquito control program is more important than ever to protect your family from the dangers these parasites carry.

According to the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA), there are 176 species of these annoying insects in the U.S. and more than 3,000 species worldwide.
West Nile Virus is the leading mosquito-borne disease in the U.S. While most cases of WNV are mild and go away on their own, the disease can cause inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. Other symptoms can include stiff neck, sleepiness, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, and paralysis. At this time, there is no cure or medication for treatment.
The Zika virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an Aedes mosquito. Common symptoms include fever, headache, joint pain, muscle pain, and red eyes. The virus can be transferred from a pregnant woman to an unborn fetus causing congenital disabilities for the child. At this time, there is no known cure for the Zika virus.
A third virus transmitted through the bite of a mosquito is the EEE virus. While only a few cases are reported in the United States each year, it can cause inflammation of the brain. People over the age of 50 and under 15 are at the greatest risk of developing ongoing neurological problems.
