Mosquitoes   Photo


Mosquitoes are small flies that take over our outdoor spaces in large numbers. These biting insects regularly drive people indoors. They are most active when temperatures exceed 50 degrees Fahrenheit and, therefore, the biggest threat in the spring, summer, and fall. The primary food source for females and males is plant nectar. However, female mosquitoes must supplement their diet with blood meals from people and animals. 

Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water or areas where flooding is likely to occur. In the right conditions, it only takes seven to ten days for a mosquito to develop from egg to adult. Properties with or near lots of standing water are most likely to experience problems with mosquitoes. Minimizing mosquito activity on your property is critical to your family’s health and safety. As mosquitoes feed, they acquire parasites and disease-causing pathogens that they can then pass on to their next host. 

Use these tips to eliminate mosquito breeding and resting sites on your property.

  • Keep grass cut short and remove areas of overgrown weeds.

  • Get rid of unnecessary woodpiles, leaf piles, and construction debris.

  • Store containers that can collect rainwater upside down.

  • Keep gutters clear of debris. 

The fewer resting spots and breeding sites on your property, the better. Additionally, regular mosquito control services performed by a Louisville pest controlprofessional will stop these biting pests from taking over your backyard.
