Living on the Space Coast means a fear of sharks might be at the top of your mind on a regular basis. As stories hit the news of shark bites at local beaches, like two shark bite incidents at Vero & Melbourne beaches this April, you may begin to fear even going in the water. But what if I told you that there are other animals much more dangerous to you and your family, right here on the Space Coast?
The Deadliest Animal on Earth
In fact, the deadliest animal on Earth resides in our coastal community in massive numbers. You might think sharks are scary, but sharks only kill 6 people per year, making them one of the least deadly animals that scare us. Crocodiles kill about 1,000 people per year, dogs kill over 17 thousand people per year, and humans kill over 500,000 people per year. Are you thinking twice about walking down the street where dogs or humans could happen to walk by?
With those alarming stats, you might think twice about your fear of sharks. But we still haven’t revealed the deadliest animal on Earth. Florida is the U.S. state where this animal is most abundant and yet you rarely hear of people worrying about the danger. More than a mere annoyance, mosquitoes are the deadliest animal on Earth! The latest complete states from 2015 show mosquitoes are responsible for 830,000 human deaths, in one single year! Spreading deadly diseases like West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, Malaria, and Dengue fever, mosquitoes have the numbers and the disease spreading capability to do a great deal of damage in a very short amount of time.
While we work closely with determined groups like Malaria No More who fight to eliminate mosquito-caused death across the world, we want you to protect yourself from mosquitoes now. Avoiding mosquito bites is still the best way to prevent a mosquito-borne disease that could lead to illness or death. With our mosquito barrier treatment, special event spray, and automatic mosquito misting systems we can eliminate 85-90% of mosquitoes on your property for a more enjoyable outdoor lifestyle.
