Frequently Asked Questions About Mosquitoes

What are mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are insects that belong to the scientific classification of Culicidae. They have slender segmented bodies, six legs, a pair of wings, and elongated mouthparts. Both males and females of this species use their mouthparts to drink plant nectar, but female mosquitoes also bite humans and other mammals in order to feed on their blood. These blood meals are necessary for the female mosquito to properly develop her eggs and continue the mosquito life cycle.

It's essential to defeat mosquitoes on your property before an infestation gets out of control because this small pest brings major dangers.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Mosquitoes may be small, but they are dangerous to deal with thanks to the potential health risks they bring. Mosquitoes introduce bacteria and pathogens through their bites, and the diseases spread by mosquitoes include serious illnesses such as malaria, yellow fever, Zika virus, and West Nile virus.

Additionally, mosquito bites may trigger allergies in some individuals, resulting in itching, pain, swelling, and, more severely, anaphylaxis. Professional mosquito control is key to avoiding these dangers.

Why do I have a mosquito problem?

Mosquitoes are attracted to properties with lots of food, moisture, and shaded hiding areas. If you are encountering more mosquitoes around your property, chances are that you are encouraging infestation by leaving out standing water, ignoring overgrown areas, and planting lots of bright, sweet-smelling flowers. One of the most helpfulways to get rid of mosquitoes is by removing these attractants from your property.

Where will I find mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are most commonly found hiding outdoors. You will see mosquitoes near puddles of standing water and water features such as birdbaths, or they may hide out in clogged gutters and other areas that are full of moisture. Overgrown foliage, long grasses, and piles of debris outdoors also make for prime mosquito hiding spots, and it’s essential to keep these areas clear if you want to deter mosquitoes from gathering around your property.
