About this pest

Short Description of Mosquitoes and Their Behavior:

Mosquitoes are small, flying insects known for their itchy bites and ability to spread diseases like West Nile Virus, Zika, and Dengue Fever. Female mosquitoes require blood meals to lay eggs, while males feed mainly on nectar. They breed in standing water and are most active at dawn and dusk, often making outdoor activities uncomfortable.

Why You Might Be Seeing Mosquitoes Around Your Home:

  • Standing Water: Mosquitoes lay eggs in stagnant water, including bird baths, clogged gutters, plant saucers, and old tires.

  • Shaded Areas: They rest in shaded, cool areas like tall grass, shrubs, and dense vegetation during the day.

  • Outdoor Activities: Mosquitoes are attracted to body heat and carbon dioxide, often finding hosts during outdoor gatherings.

  • Seasonal Activity: Mosquitoes are most active during warm months, particularly after rain.
