Mosquitoes are more than an itchy, scratchy pain in the neck—they’re also dangerous to your health, and that of your pet. The blood-sucking pests can carry West Nile Virus (WNV), a potentially serious illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), WNV is generally a seasonal epidemic.
