The Trick To Effective Mosquito Control In Atlanta

Have you ever stepped out of your Atlanta home and had a dozen mosquitoes start buzzing around you within a few seconds? If so, where do you think those mosquitoes were before you went outside? There is a common misconception that mosquitoes just fly around all day long, moving from yard to yard in search of someone to bite. This is actually not the case. Mosquitoes spend most of their time resting. When you go out into your yard and get swarmed by mosquitoes, you should know that those mosquitoes were probably not flying around before you came out. It is more likely that they were resting. You can also be sure that they didn't zip from your neighbor's yard into yours when you stepped outside. They can't sense you from that distance. The mosquitoes that swarm you and bite you in your yard are mosquitoes that live on your property. The trick to effective mosquito control in Atlanta is addressing breeding sites and resting places.

Why Choose Tuxedo Mosquito Control?

Food Sources And Resting Places

Before mosquitoes lay eggs in your yard, they're likely to be attracted to your yard by food sources. You might not know this but mosquitoes don't eat blood to survive. Females draw blood for the purpose of reproduction but all mosquitoes eat plant sap and nectar to survive. If you have plants, particularly flowering plants, in your yard, you'll attract mosquitoes. This is even more reason to remove unnecessary vegetation from your landscaping. If you have flowering weeds, they should be your first priority. Pluck those weeds up and get rid of them. When mosquitoes come to feed on plant sap and nectar, they're likely to use your landscaping as a location to rest. Dense vegetation provides many hiding spots to protect mosquitoes from the dying effects of the sun. Thinning your landscaping and keeping it dry above ground, can have a big impact on mosquitoes.
