Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are well-known to spread life threatening diseases such as West Nile Virus, Malaria and Dengue Fever. If you think you might have a mosquito infestation,
we highly recommend that you call us immediately. Infected mosquitoes can multiply quickly, making early detection critically important to prevent an even larger and more dangerous infestation.

Habits

Male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar. Female mosquitoes suck our blood. They are most active from dusk to dawn and will fly up to 14 miles for a blood meal.

Habitat

Mosquitoes breed in soft soil and stagnant water sources — and can develop from egg to adult
in 10 to 14 days. Anywhere there’s standing water can become a mosquito breeding ground.

Threats

Mosquitoes are well-known to spread life threatening diseases such as West Nile Virus,
Malaria and Dengue Fever.

Prevention

Eliminate or reduce mosquito breeding sites by draining or replacing all standing water at least
once a week. This includes inspecting storm drains, buckets, coolers, old tires, bird baths, ponds and unfiltered pools such as children’s wading pools. Remove trash and unneeded vegetation from around any standing water sources that cannot be changed, dumped or removed.

Introduce mosquito-eating fish such as gambusia, green sunfish, bluegills and minnows to standing water. Screen windows, doors and other openings with mesh. Avoid going outdoors when and where mosquitoes are most active: during dusk or dawn. Use insect repellent containing DEET on exposed skin whenever or wherever mosquitoes are likely to bite.

If you think you might have a mosquito infestation, we highly recommend that you call us immediately. Infected mosquitoes can multiply quickly, making early detection critically important to prevent an even larger and more dangerous infestation.
