What You Are Missing For Effective Mosquito Control Around Your Yard

mosquito spreading illness

Nature is a beautiful thing, and spending time outdoors is a great way to lift spirits. The problem is, nature is filled with annoying things. If you have ever greeted a spider web with your face, stepped ankle-deep into a patch of mud, or been bitten by a mosquito, you know what we are talking about. Today we are focusing on some ways to fight back against one of nature’s most annoying pests, the mosquito. Assuming you already know a bit about how to stop mosquitoes from biting you, here is a detailed control guide that will help you find what you are missing.

A Brief Description Of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are small winged insects that require blood to reproduce. Specifically, female mosquitoes need blood to produce eggs, while males live on a diet of only nectar and honeydew. The eggs of female mosquitoes are laid in sources of stagnant water. This could be anything from a birdbath to a toy that has filled with water after a rainstorm. One thing you should know about mosquitoes is that they are poor flyers. Even the slightest breeze makes it difficult for them to land.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Mosquitoes are a lot more than annoying pests that want your blood. Beyond the biting, slap marks, and itchy welts, mosquitoes are dangerous creatures. In fact, they are the most dangerous creatures in the world since they are responsible for over one million deaths each year. The good news is that these deaths mostly occur in third-world countries and not here in America. Due to our accessible health care, mosquitoes aren’t able to pick up or transmit diseases as effectively. This does not, however, mean they are harmless. If bitten by a mosquito, you still run a small risk of coming down with dengue fever, malaria, West Nile virus, or a number of other life-changing diseases.

How To Reduce Mosquito Populations On Your Property

Mosquitoes need stagnant water to breed. The best thing you can do to stop them from reproducing on your property is to make sure there are no water sources for females to lay their eggs. The first thing you should do is empty out containers, toys, and other objects that have collected water on your property. If you have ornate pools or birdbaths, make sure you are emptying them and replacing their water once every four days. Another solution is to invest in pools that have circulating water. If you have a fish pond, consider stocking it with mosquito-killing fish.

BugBros Method For Fighting Mosquitoes

At BugBros, we use top-of-the-line products when treating for mosquitoes. Our process involves two stages, elimination of stagnant water and the application of a high-quality mosquito deterrent. To apply treatments, we use a fogger designed to disperse mosquito repellant across your yard. This product works as a no-land zone for mosquitoes trying to enter onto your property. If mosquitoes land before getting to you, they die, plain and simple.

Told me exactly what they were going to do and for what price. Then they didn’t try to get me for add ons at the end, everything was included and the best part he didn’t act like a salesman. Kinda shocking in today’s world! Thanks Erin, you carried yourself well and were very pleasant to have in... our home.read more
