How To Keep Dangerous Mosquitoes Away From Your Waldorf Home


Mosquitoes rank among the most irritating of all house pests. Where some pests will infest your home quietly and seek to avoid you as they go about their business, others possess habits and behaviors that place them in direct contact with you, and frequently. Mosquitoes are even worse than this. They not only situate themselves anywhere you are, but they also will never miss an opportunity to bite you. Mosquitoes need blood to survive, and yours is on their menu. Mosquitoes can make it nearly impossible to enjoy your yard in the spring and summer.

If you need quality pest control in Waldorf, Mike’s Pest and Termite Control can help you. Give us a call today and let our seasoned, professional staff help you get rid of mosquitoes and then keep mosquitoes away.

Mosquitoes: Habits And Behaviors Of The Little Fly

Mosquitoes start as eggs. Mosquitoes lay their eggs close to or in water. The eggs hatch into larvae, which live in and feed in the water. They eventually move into the pupa stage. They remain in the water during this period. They eventually emerge as adults and leave the water. When mosquitoes reach adulthood, they are immediately capable of breeding, and as a consequence will immediately begin seeking blood. Mosquitoes require blood to breed and as a result are always on the hunt for it. If you are outside when they are around they will incessantly pursue you until you either deal with them or go inside.

Don’t let mosquitoes rob you of your ability to enjoy your yard. Mike’s Pest and Termite Control knows how to get rid of mosquitoes, and we can help you get rid of yours. Contact us, and let us help you get your yard back.

Mosquitoes Around Your Yard Are Both Annoying And Dangerous

Mosquitoes can be extraordinarily annoying when they won’t leave you alone. They can follow you almost anywhere in your yard using their sense of smell. Wherever you go, mosquitoes are sure to follow. Unfortunately, mosquitoes can pose much more serious risks. Mosquitoes need blood to reproduce, and they use a needle-like appendage to get it. As they siphon your blood away, they also inject their saliva into the bite area. They do this to keep the blood from thickening as they feed. The reason they leave itchy welts behind is that their saliva often causes allergic reactions.

If a mosquito feeds on a host infected with a transmittable disease like Zika, West Nile virus, or yellow fever, it can later transmit it to you when it injects its saliva into you. Mosquitos are considered one of the most prolific disease vectors in modern times. Fortunately, Mike’s Pest and Termite Control is considered one of the best ways to keep mosquitoes away. Get in contact with us today to see how we can help you.

Six Eco-Friendly And Effective Mosquito Prevention Tips

Given that mosquitoes can be extremely irritating and can also potentially introduce you to dangerous diseases, here are some ways that you can decrease or mitigate mosquito activity on your property:

  1. Eliminate areas of standing water to decrease mosquito breeding areas.
  2. Keep vegetation trimmed to decrease shady resting areas for mosquitoes.
  3. Wear long clothing when outside to decrease feeding opportunities for mosquitoes.
  4. Avoid being outside at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are at their most active.
  5. Use mosquito repellants to make yourself less appealing to mosquitoes. 
  6. Use citronella candles to help keep mosquitoes out of the area.
