Ah, the joys of summer! It is that time of year for working in the yard, laying out on the deck to work on the tan, swimming in the pool, or watching the children play with the sprinkler. Few things are as rewarding as sitting on the back deck, enjoying the cool evening breeze, and enjoying a glass of iced tea. The only thing that can ruin your moment outdoors is mosquitoes. 

If these buzzing insects destroy family fun times in the yard, you need pest control in Marietta from Tuxedo Mosquito Control. We are not a pest control company that happens to offer a mosquito service; we are a mosquito-only, family-owned business that has been providing mosquito control for over two decades. Our mosquito technicians train for only one pest: mosquitoes. We know how these six-legged insects think, where they breed, and what to do to stop them from ruining another family picnic. 

Since mosquitoes are our passion, we want to share some of our knowledge to help you make the right decision for controlling mosquitoes on your Marietta property, so please keep reading. 

The Role Mosquitoes Play In The Ecosystem

Although you may think mosquitoes serve no purpose other than to annoy you, they are a necessary part of the ecosystem. The only mosquitoes that bite are fertilized females because they need a blood meal to get the nutrients for egg production. When females are not in reproductive mode, they eat nectar and plant juices, just like the males. When the mosquitoes feed on the plants, pollen from one flower sticks to their legs, and they transfer it to the next allowing for pollination. Unfortunately, there are plenty of mosquitoes in Georgia, so getting rid of them around your Marietta house won't stop plants from pollinating. 

Another role mosquitoes play in our ecosystem is as prey for many animals. Mosquitoes are food for bats, common nighthawks, dragonflies, red-spotted newts, and other animals. Some animals feast on adult mosquitoes, while others feed on mosquito larvae in the water. 

The best way to get rid of mosquitoes in the yard is to use Tuxedo Mosquito Control. We are the only mosquito control company in Georgia that offers a tankless misting solution. 

Mosquitoes Are Considered A Public Health Risk

Mosquitoes are vectors for disease. When a female mosquito feeds on an infected host, the bacteria and viruses it consumes stay in its body. The next time it feeds on another host, it may transfer the disease-causing pathogen spreading the infection. 

This is a list of diseases caused by mosquitoes in the United States:

  • West Nile virus
  • Dengue
  • Chikungunya
  • Encephalitis
  • Tularemia 

Symptoms from these diseases range from flu-like to life-altering brain and spinal cord inflammation. If you experience fever, chills, nausea, or other signs after being bitten by mosquitoes, seek medical attention. 

Tuxedo Mosquito Control protects your family against diseases you can get from mosquitoes. After evaluating your location, we mix our mosquito products on-site to ensure we provide the correct solution to control the mosquito population.
