Types of Mosquitoes in NC


What types of mosquitoes are in my area?

In the bustling North Carolina regions of Mebane, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, and Durham, mosquitoes are prevalent, posing a challenge to households and businesses. Several species thrive, each with its distinct characteristics:

  • Aedes Mosquitoes: Known for their distinctive black and white patterns on legs and bodies, Aedes mosquitoes often breed in standing water, posing health risks by transmitting diseases like Zika and dengue.
  • Culex Mosquitoes: With brownish bodies and patterned wings, Culex mosquitoes breed in stagnant water sources. They're notorious for carrying West Nile virus, threatening human health.
  • Anopheles Mosquitoes: Recognizable by their dark bodies and paler wings, Anopheles mosquitoes breed in freshwater sources. They're responsible for transmitting malaria, posing significant health risks.

To deter these mosquitoes in Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough, and Mebane, preventive measures are paramount:

Eliminate standing water, maintain gutters, and regularly clean bird baths to disrupt breeding grounds. Screen doors and windows, use mosquito repellents, and consider professional mosquito control for comprehensive protection.

Bifen IT is our product of choice when it comes to mosquitos, containing bifenthrin as the active ingredient, proves effective against mosquitoes, offering broad-spectrum control. Its residual effect and rapid action, when applied by professionals, make it a valuable asset in mosquito control.

In summary, a proactive stance, combining preventive actions and professional pest control, is crucial in managing mosquito populations, ensuring a safer and more comfortable environment in these North Carolina cities.
