If you have spent any time outdoors during the warm months of spring and summer, then you’re likely very familiar with mosquitoes. The blood-sucking flies have been around for millions of years, feeding on all kinds of mammals, including humans. There are so many different species that it’s pretty safe to say that nearly every single creature on the planet has had to deal with them in some way, shape or form.
Mosquitoes buzz in your ears and are infamous for the itchy, red, bumps that their bites leave. Mosquitoes are small, but the statistics indicate that the lowly and humble mosquito is actually the deadliest creature on Earth. What’s so deadly about a miniscule insect? Mosquitoes are known vectors of diseases such as West Nile Virus, malaria, Zika virus, etc.
Mosquitoes like warm, humid, weather and need to be somewhere near still water. All species of mosquitoes lay their eggs in water and some species can do so in just a cup full of water. Even a simple puddle after a rainstorm can breed mosquitoes.
Mosquito control solutions
One of the best ways to control mosquitoes is to prevent them from breeding. That’s why a comprehensive mosquito control program is important for your property.
Although mosquitoes are famous for their feeding times during the dusk and dawn hours, during the day, they like to rest in cool, damp areas, normally areas thick with vegetation. The best way to keep mosquitoes away from your property is to have a pest control professional conduct a detailed examination of your property before a treatment can be applied.
