What is a mosquito?
Mosquitoes are a family of small, midge-like flies. Although a few species are harmless, or even useful to humanity, the females of most species are ectoparasites whose tube-like mouths pierce the hosts’ skin to suck the blood.
Though the loss of blood is rarely much cause for concern to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that constitutes a relatively serious nuisance. Much more serious however, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases.
In passing from host to host, some of them transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, and filariasis.
Most mosquitoes feed heavily at dawn and at dusk. During the heat of the day most species of mosquito rest in cool places such as the underside of leaves while they wait for evenings, although they may still bite if disturbed.
Prevention is key to controlling mosquito populations around your home. You can take these preventive measures yourself.
1. Reduce standing water to eliminate mosquito breeding areas. Dump out flower pots and children’s toys making sure to empty out anything that holds water.
2. Clean your gutters. Clogged gutters that don’t drain properly are common breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
3. Trim back vegetation. Mosquitoes feast on plant nectar when they’re not on the hunt for blood, so they spend a lot of time in tall grasses or around shrubs and bushes.
4. Remove yard debris such as twigs, branches, leaves and grass clippings that have piled up in your yard become a key source for mosquito breeding.
Professional Mosquito Control
If prevention doesn’t give you satisfactory results, the trained and certified professionals here at Westate Pest Control provide barrier spray treatments that kill adult mosquitoes, as well as larvicides that kill mosquitoes in the larvae stage.
Most barrier spray treatments contain pyrethin, a botanical pesticide derived from dried chrysanthemum plants, or pyrethriods, a synthetically produced insecticide that mimics the chemistry of naturally occurring pyethrin. Pyrethroid spray is used more often and considered to be more effective due to the pyrethrins breaking down more quickly.
The barrier spray is usually applied to vegetation with a backpack sprayer. It works by paralyzing and then killing mosquitoes after they come into contact with it.
Larvicides are an effective option to treat water bodies such as backyard ponds, ditches and lakes. The commonly used larvicide, BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), is a naturally occurring bacterium that can be applied to water via dissolvable briquettes, backpack sprayers and even air crafts.
Mosquito Misting Systems
If you’re in need of a more constant mosquito control option then automatic misting system may be perfect for you and your property. This system automatically releases a 30-second spray 2-4 times a day. Kills or repels mosquitoes in nearby areas. These can be filled, serviced and prepared by our professionals, so you never need to lift a finger.
