Mosquitos are pesky insects that can not only ruin your time outside, but can also transmit dangerous viruses like Zika, encephalitis, and West Nile. These diseases can cause serious side effects, and that’s a concern since the number of illnesses that come from mosquito bites is on the rise. And in addition to the potential of contracting these viruses, people can also have severe reactions to the bites themselves (including extreme swelling and inflammation). If you’ve spotted mosquitos flying around your home or business, you may be in need of pest control services.
How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes
To effectively get rid of mosquitoes, you have to understand a little bit about their breeding habits and behaviors. A female mosquito only needs to mate with a male mosquito once and then she can produce eggs up to five times within that season – all from that one encounter. They lay their eggs in places that have moisture or stagnant water. Your yard is full of prime locations – gutters, planters, toys, buckets, or anywhere that has the potential to hold water. Because of this, it is especially important to inspect your property after rain to make sure no standing water exists. If standing water is left, it has the potential to become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. In addition to making sure you don’t have stagnant water around your property, professional mosquito yard control services are often necessary because DIY methods to get rid of them are not always enough.
