About The Breeding Habits Of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are fairly unique flying insects in that they lay their eggs inside sources of stagnant water and need blood to provide nutrients for their young. More specifically, females use their piercing proboscis to draw blood from humans and animals. They then look for pools of still water around properties in which to lay their eggs. It then takes eight to ten days for these eggs to develop into adult mosquitoes. Interestingly, adults live for less than this time and usually die off within a week. If you are looking to reduce mosquito populations on your property, you need to reduce breeding grounds as much as possible.

The Dangers Of Mosquitoes Breeding On Your Property

When a mosquito bites you, do you worry about getting sick? Most people do not think about sickness when these pests bite. This is because mosquito-borne diseases are less common here in the United States. Although you should not be paranoid about being bitten, we want you to know that outbreaks do occur. Three common diseases carried by mosquitoes seen in America include malaria, West Nile virus, and dengue fever. To avoid getting sick from an infected pest, you need to do your best to avoid bites in the first place. The best way to do this is with some form of mosquito control in East Cobb. 

How To Identify And Remedy Potential Mosquito Breeding Spots

Many local properties provide mosquitoes with several locations to breed. Your yard is most likely no different. The question is, where do mosquitoes lay their eggs around area properties? Mosquitoes might find breeding grounds inside your clogged gutters, within bird baths and ornate pools, or in pools of collected rainwater. To help you address these moisture problems, here are a few tips and tricks to use today.

  • Clean your gutters once a year and make sure they are in good working condition.

  • Address areas where water puddles around your property. If you have to, hire a professional and have trouble areas terraformed to reduce water build-up.

  • Pour out water that collects inside toys, containers, and other items around your property after it rains.

  • Reduce clutter around your yard and remove items that might collect rainwater.

  • Stock ponds on your property with mosquito fish.

  • Change the water inside birdbaths and ornate pools once every four to five days.

If you plan on spending time outdoors away from your property, wear light-colored clothing and use some form of mosquito spray. We recommend products containing DEET. This will go a long way to help you avoid bites. For even more protection against mosquitoes, let an expert treat your property.
