Mosquitoes in Waldorf are easily one of the most irritating pest problems you can face in Waldorf. Where some pests are interested in making a house in your home, other insects are interested in your stored food, and others are interested in your pets, mosquitoes just happen to be interested in you. If you are outside when mosquitoes are active, they will pester you mercilessly in the hunt for blood. You have plenty of what they want, and they will follow you anywhere you go in your yard using a sophisticated, overlapping set of senses that guides them straight toward you wherever you go to try to get away. When that happens, you need to call someone who knows how to get rid of mosquitoes. 

If biting mosquitoes are making it all but impossible to enjoy your Waldorf property, Mike’s Pest and Termite Control can help. We have a long history of helping local homeowners get their yards back.

Understanding Mosquito Behavior: Essential For Effective Control

Why, exactly, do mosquitoes chase you endlessly and bite you constantly? The reason is that they need blood to survive. Mosquitoes use your blood to help them make eggs. They can’t make eggs without blood and won’t stop coming after you until they get their fill. And mosquitoes are always hungry.

Mosquito control in Waldorf is critical to avoid endless problems with mosquitoes.

Health Risks Of Mosquito Bites: Warning Signs To Watch For

Mosquitoes draw blood from hosts using a specialized, needle-like appendage to pierce the skin and siphon the blood like a straw. While feeding, mosquitoes inject saliva into the bite area to keep the blood from thickening. The saliva contains a blood thinner known as anophelin and helps the mosquito feed. Unfortunately, if a mosquito feeds on a host infected with a dangerous pathogen, it can transmit that pathogen to any subsequent host it feeds on later. Just getting bitten by a mosquito can expose you to dangerous pathogens.

Mosquito Prevention: Eco-Friendly And Effective Tips

The best way to keep mosquitoes away from you and your family is to keep them away from your property. Here are some simple tips you can use to decrease your chances of having to deal with mosquitoes on your property:

  • Eliminate standing water: Mosquitoes need standing water to breed, and not much of it. 
  • Trim bushes: Keeping bushes and hedges well-trimmed can help minimize mosquito harborage areas.
  • Avoidance: Mosquitoes are highly active near dawn and dusk. Staying inside during these times can help you avoid extensive exposure to them. 
  • Seal garbage: Eliminating open garbage outside can reduce the number of rodents that visit, followed by the mosquitoes that want to feed on them.

These tips can help reduce your exposure to mosquitoes, but they may still come anyway. If that happens, Mike’s Pest and Termite Control can come, too, to eliminate them. Contact us today for help with pesky mosquitoes. We are the best way to get rid of mosquitoes outside your home.
