Mosquitoes are common insects, especially in wetlands and tropical areas, but you’ll find them in almost any climate. The insect bites can ruin your night and their buzzing sounds can keep you awake, so if there’s an infestation on your property, it’s important to take steps to control and remove them.
In addition to their bites, they can spread malaria, the Zika virus, and the West Nile virus, so calling for professional pest control services is a good idea in order to keep them away from your property.
If you’re handling mosquito control or prevention on your own, you need to understand their life cycle. The 4-stage cycle including egg, larva, pupa, and adult may take 4-30 days, depending on the species and weather conditions. You may cut the life cycle from the very start by clearing any stagnant water, as it is the most essential component of a mosquito’s breeding process.
But while you could handle it on your own, a professional pest control company can be your best partner in the mosquito control and removal. Qualified pest experts can advise you on preventative measures to reduce infestations from happening in the first place. Some prevention and control measures include:
- Clearing bushes and shrubs around your home
- Draining stagnant water or treating stagnant water bodies on your property
- Trimming tall grass in your yard
Although control measures can help you reduce further attacks, you need to get rid of visible mosquitoes already present. Indoor residual insecticide sprays and mosquito repellent gels are effective mosquito treatment methods, but need to be applied carefully.
If you want expert application of the insecticides and repellent, a pest control company should be called in to remove mosquitoes from your property and surrounding areas.
So if you’ve got issues with mosquitoes on your property, don’t wait for it to get out of hand. Contact us to talk to our pest control professionals about how we can help you control and remove mosquitoes.
