Mosquitoes
Mosquito bites can cause severe skin irritation through an allergic reaction, as well as, the transmission of certain serious diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and several forms of encephalitis.  Not only can mosquitoes carry diseases which afflict humans, but they also can transmit several diseases and parasites that are very susceptible to dogs and horses.  These include dog heart worms and eastern equine encephalitis.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Virginia Dept. of Health (VDH) recommend taking steps to control mosquitoes around your home.
