We will walk you through what mosquito pest control in Lighthouse Point looks like and help you schedule an appointment for your yard.
Understanding The Mosquito Lifecycle: A Key To Effective Control
All mosquitoes start out as eggs. You may already know this. What you might not know is that female mosquitoes lay their eggs inside pools of stagnant water. These eggs take a few days to develop into larva, pupa, and then into full adults. If a breeding ground is disturbed before this process completes, young mosquitoes are likely to die off.
We will talk more about methods to disturb breeding grounds and reduce populations of these pests on your property in just a bit. First, let’s break down some of the common dangers that are associated with these local insects.
Mosquito Dangers: Understanding The Risks Of An Infestation
Mosquitoes are not always a threat to your health. In fact, most types of mosquitoes cannot spread malaria, the most dangerous mosquito-borne disease. Keeping this in mind, the species that do spread malaria exist in the United States in many areas. There are also lots of mosquitoes locally that spread other harmful sicknesses.
The good news is that fewer people and animals have blood-borne diseases in the United States. This directly correlates to a lesser chance that mosquitoes can pick up harmful diseases. That said, you should still do everything in your power to avoid mosquito bites. We are going to try to help you do this with some helpful DIY tips and tricks.
Mosquito Prevention: Eco-Friendly And Effective Tips
You may not need professional mosquito control right away to find some reprieve from these pests. There are lots of things you can do on your own to deter these bugs from your property. Here is a custom list of prevention tips our experts recommend you know.
- Eliminate pools of stagnant water around your property.
- Address factors that might lead to rainwater build-up in the future.
- Have your gutters cleaned once a year, and make sure they are working properly.
