Mosquito Control - Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes bother everyone during the warmer months of the year. These pests swarm at outdoor events, making everyone run to find mosquito extermination methods. Mosquito larvae need to float on still water in order to grow and hatch. They breed prolifically in stagnant water, from bird baths to discarded tires even in puddles from the latest rainfall. Certain land features, such as swamps, reservoirs and retention ponds are virtual breeding grounds for mosquitoes. An unusually rainy spring can result in a mosquito population explosion, making mosquito control all but impossible. Mosquito bites produce itchy, unsightly marks and can cause severe allergic reactions in some people. And, all it takes is one tenacious pest to infiltrate your home and make everyone inside miserable.
Contrary to popular belief, mosquitoes do not require blood to live, as they actually feed on nectar. The males are not blood drinkers; however, the female of the species requires it in order to lay eggs. Once she lays her eggs, a female mosquito will seek more blood in order to produce more young. She will continue this cycle during her short life span of about two weeks.
Though some may consider them an unpleasant nuisance, mosquitoes are responsible for more human deaths than any other insect. Mosquitoes feed off both humans and animals, thereby easily infecting host upon host. Mosquito control should be taken seriously, as a single mosquito bite can transmit diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and encephalitis.
The well-known and well-publicized West Nile Virus (an Encephalitis virus) first appeared in the Western hemisphere in 1999 and quickly spread to infect people in every state in the US. As a result, mosquito extermination is vitally important to human health and well-being. Mosquito insecticide is often used on a wide-scale basis to combat mosquitoes and is generally very effective. If your property is prone to attracting and breeding a mosquito population, or you have noticed a general increase than usual, contact professional mosquito exterminators to learn how we can help you kill mosquitoes.
