It’s Halloween Time in New Orleans and that means Vampires are coming…But, did you know that Mosquitoes will also be out in full force? Both creatures are after your blood, but there is only one tiny one that you have to worry about….The Mosquito. Trick or Treating might look a little different in 2020, but no matter what you decide to do, some sort of outdoor activity will be involved. You may consider having a little Halloween themed backyard party with your closest friends. That’s when Vampires and mosquitoes will strike.
As a matter of fact, as soon as you head outside, you are in danger of getting attacked by mosquitoes, especially after dark. Protecting yourself against vampires is fairly easy. Everybody knows a good dose of garlic will keep those bloodsuckers away.
Trying to repel mosquitoes isn’t as easy. Additionally, mosquitoes can spread the West Nile Virus, Dengue, Chikungunya and Yellow Fevers as well as the Zika Virus, which is especially dangerous to pregnant women. Mosquito control is the best option to stop transmission.
