Everyone is familiar with Mosquitoes; however, did you know that authorities argue that mosquitoes are the most dangerous animals on earth. Although a few species are useful to humanity, most are a nuisance because they suck blood from vertebrates, many of them attacking humans. Because they feed on blood, mosquitoes transmit some of the most harmful human and livestock diseases. Most species are nocturnal feeders. Although you don’t see many during the daytime, at dusk they emerge to begin creating havoc.
Female mosquitoes are usually larger than males. Females have fine threadlike antennae with few hairs, whereas males have bushy antennae. Adult females live several weeks if given a source of sugar. Males usually live less than a week. Mosquitoes grow through an egg, larva, pupa to adult stage.
Although eliminating mosquitoes completely from your yard is next to impossible, there is a solution to reduce their population. First, let’s set up a prevention program to control mosquitoes before they really get started. To do this you would need to make sure you are storing water cans upside down, draining flowerpots frequently, keeping pet dishes fresh, changing birdbath water weekly and not allowing water to collect around your yard and home. It is also important for you to keep your gutters clean, fix leaky pipes, keep grass cut short and shrubbery well trimmed around the house, so adult mosquitoes will not hide there, cover trash containers to keep out rainwater, and drill holes in bottom of trash containers so any water can drain out. We must make sure we eliminate larvae in standing water sites around your property. Next is adult mosquito treatment which will provide immediate relief from these pesky insects. Waltham Pest Control can provide you with a one time mosquito treatment which can give you up to four weeks of relief or a seasonal program with recurring applications to prevent and reduce mosquito throughout the season.
