Common little critters in Houston that can seem adorable and friendly from afar, squirrels have the potential to become a nuisance to you and your property. When seen playing in the park, it’s hard to imagine that these little cuties could be problematic. But it’s important to remember that squirrels are rodents that can wreak havoc outside and indoors.

Why is it that you can be outside in the evening with friends and they emerge unscathed while you end up polka dotted with pink, puffy mosquito bites? What is it about you that is so attractive to those blood-sucking, disease-carrying critters? Studies show that certain humans—at least 20% of them—are especially attractive to mosquitoes. Several factors determine whether mosquitoes will be drawn to one person over another. Mosquitoes use sight and scent to find their human prey, meaning that the way you look and smell will be critical in whether or not you act as an attractive blood source. Some of these are factors you can control, while others (such as blood type and breathing rate!) are a bit more challenging.

Not only are they annoying, itchy and sometimes painful, mosquito bites can also be extremely dangerous. In fact, tiny mosquitoes are considered to be the deadliest animal in the world.

Because of this, a mosquito can be much more dangerous to the health of your family than it's size indicates.
