MOSQUITOES DO NOT TRANSMIT NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Many of us have questions about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it spreads, and it can be difficult to sift through information. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 cannot be transmitted through mosquito bites. Instead, “the new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose.”

However, as mosquito season begins, it is important to remember that mosquitoes are known to transmit other diseases that impact both humans and pets in Georgia and South Carolina, including: West Nile virus, Zika virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, Saint Louis Encephalitis virus, Chikungunya virus, dog heartworm, and cat heartworm.

During this unprecedented time, our homes are feeling more important than ever. At Stokes Mosquito and Outdoor Pest Service, we continue to offer our full suite of mosquito, flea & tick, fire ant, and outdoor pest control services in areas where it is safe and responsible to do so. In light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), our employees are careful to remain a safe distance of 6 – 10 ft from all customers, including children. We will greet you with a wave, and, if preferred, we are happy to communicate entirely via phone or text. While we wish we could do more, we are ready and able help you protect your family from mosquitoes and other biting insects, so your outdoor spaces can truly serve as an extension of your home, at a time when being home is the best thing we can do.
