Mosquitoes are the deadliest animal on planet Earth. According to the World Health Organization, about 725,000 people around the world are killed every year by mosquito-borne diseases. Every year, residents across the United States are infected with mosquito-borne pathogens like West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis virus, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, dengue virus and others. In 2019, 184 California residents were infected with West Nile virus. There are no cures for mosquito-borne diseases and only Yellow Fever has a vaccine. Mosquito control is the only way to prevent these deadly diseases.
