Why Do I Have Mosquitoes Inside My Marietta Home?

How Can I Tell If It's Mosquitoes In My House?

There are many types of flies that like to invade homes here in Marietta. Unlike other common species, mosquitoes do not want to live indoors. They like being outside and require pools of stagnant water to breed. Indoors, they have a much more difficult time reproducing and staying well fed. If you want to know how to identify mosquitoes inside your home, look at their bodies and the way they behave. Mosquitoes have small bodies, long thin abdomens, six long legs, thin wings, and a needle-like proboscis (mouth). Most flies that invade homes in our area do not steal blood from people. That said, if you see a small, winged insect on your arm for a prolonged period drawing blood from your skin, it is probably a mosquito.

Is It Dangerous To Have Mosquitoes In My House?

Do you like keeping your windows and doors open during the summer months? If so, you are likely to have trouble with mosquitoes indoors from time to time. The question is, are mosquitoes dangerous? Will they pose a threat to you and your family when they invade? Yes, and yes. Although not always dangerous, every so often a mosquito bite comes with a harmful disease. Some common diseases spread by mosquitoes in Marietta are malaria, West Nile virus, and chikungunya. If you start experiencing strange flu-like symptoms and they don’t go away, seek medical attention as they could be a sign of mosquito-borne disease. The good news is that we have ample and effective treatment options for mosquito-borne diseases here in the states. 

How Did Mosquitoes Find Their Way Into My House?

Mosquitoes are typically outdoor pests. They will only come indoors if there are easily accessible entry points. They are unlikely to come in through tiny cracks, gaps, and other openings as other area insects might. You are most likely to have trouble with mosquitoes if you leave your windows and doors open during the warmer months or if your home has severe damage that leaves gaping holes in its exterior. By closing your doors and windows, keeping screens in good condition, and repairing damage, you should find relief from these annoying insects indoors. This will not, however, keep these pests off your property.

What's The Best Way To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes In My House?

In order to keep mosquitoes away from your Marietta house and property, we recommend hiring the experts at Tuxedo Mosquito Control. We offer two main control methods: misting systems and spray treatments. Our mosquito misting systems are extremely effective and great for homeowners looking to enjoy their yards through the summer months. Spray treatments are about as effective but require regular retreatments to remain potent. Consider spray treatments if you are hosting an outdoor gathering away from your property, like a family reunion or wedding.
