The team here at The Colony Pest Control are experts in mosquito control and prevention. We use highly effective mosquito procedures and materials that reduce mosquito populations around your house and prevent new mosquitoes from breeding in your landscape and around your home.
What Are Mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are tiny, fly-like insects that have thin bodies, long legs, and hairy wings. These pests feed on plant nectar and sugars. Out of the 3000 mosqitoe species that are out there, it is only the females that actually bite. The blood that is sucked from human and animal hosts is used to produce more eggs.
Where Will I Find Mosquitoes?
Mosquitos mainly operate during the late night and early morning, and can be found lurking in tall grasses, thick plants, behind trees and property areas, such as fences and porches. They can also be found in pools, ponds, along riverbanks, and in irrigated fields and meadows. While mosquitoes are primarily located outside, they will enter your home in quest of food. They get access to the interior through gaps surrounding windows and doors, open windows and doors, and screen rips.
Why Do I Have a Mosquitoe Problem?
Mosquitoes are drawn to sites with dense vegetation and tall grasses, which provide them with a safe haven. They are particularly drawn to regions with a lot of flowering plants and trees, as plant nectar is the primary food supply for both male and female mosquitos. Female mosquitoes are drawn to locations with standing water because that is where they lay their eggs. Mosquito breeding habitats can be found in baby pools, bird baths, buckets, and pet food bowls. Driveways, the tops of garbage cans, flower pots, and the tops of tarps are all places where water can gather.
How Can I Prevent Mosquitoes from Entering My Property?
We recommend these prevention steps to keep mosquitoes out of your property:
- Eliminate standing water that may be found in your property.
- Maintain a short lawn in your yard.
- Keep blockages and debris out of your gutters to prevent water storing in them.
- Fill in low-lying places in your lawn where water may accumulate.
- Store water-collecting containers upside down when not in use.
- Repair outdoor hoses and faucets that may have leaks.
