  • Mosquito Control

    • Do mosquitoes die after they bite?
      It is often misunderstood that after each bite the mosquito will die, but they in fact can cause harm to multiple people through repetitive bites in a matter of minutes. The only sure way to prevent mosquito bites in the immediate moment is by giving them a good ole smack.
    • Should I ask my neighbors to consider mosquito control?

      For you to successfully control mosquitoes around your home, you need the support of other members of the public. According to the American Mosquito Control Association, the mosquito control effort is divided into public and individual. This means that everyone has a role to play. Mosquitoes can fly miles from their breeding sites. So, by getting your neighbors evolved in eliminating them, you are assured of a higher degree of success.

    • Do mosquitoes have any predators?
      Many animals, such as bats and swallows, feed on mosquitoes. Increase their number to make your work easier. For example, you can install bat shelters to attract these predators to your home.
    • How long do mosquitoes live?
      While a mosquito on average will only live about 2-3 weeks unharmed, it is their ability to quickly multiply and their dangerous bite that makes them a cause for concern.
    • Is controlling mosquito breeding sites an effective way to get rid of mosquitoes?
      Yes. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water. After about three days, the eggs hatch. The larvae mature within 12 days and begin to fly. Given that a single female mosquito can lay up to 400 eggs within two weeks, you may have no better way to control their population than to destroy the breeding sites.
    • Can mosquito repellent eliminate mosquitoes?
      Mosquito repellent cannot eliminate mosquitoes although this can often be effective at reducing them. You can use natural mosquito repellents, as their scent confuses mosquitoes and makes it hard for them to find you and your loved ones. Some are designed for the yard and others for the skin.
    • When is mosquito season?
      Mosquito season lasts from late spring to early fall.
    • Why do mosquitoes bite?
      Now you may be wondering why mosquitoes feel the need to bite you. The simple answer is they need blood to reproduce. Female mosquitos are known as consummate blood feeders and depend on the ability to bite humans or animals for the proteins and iron in our blood needed for the production, development, and maturing of their eggs.
