BACKYARD MOSQUITO CONTROL
It’s not just you. Mosquitoes are getting worse. These blood-sucking pests have plagued residents of Southern New Jersey for a long time. It’s even said that they drove Swedish settlers from the state in the 1800s. The female mosquito’s insatiable need for blood will cut down on your fun and leave you with irritating bites, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Now, we can fight back because we have yard mosquito control and better methods for controlling rampant mosquito populations.
Thanks to a combination of anesthetic and anticoagulant compounds in their saliva, a female mosquito can insert her needle-like proboscis into animal or human prey and fill her body with blood very quickly. Once she has fed, she can produce and lay several hundred eggs at a time.
Mosquitoes can sense body heat from nearly 100 feet away, so they will find you whether you’re sitting by a campfire, cooking on your grill or relaxing at a party. Most species are active at dawn and dusk, but some nasty ones bite throughout the day. Today, South Jersey is home to more than 60 mosquito species. Invasive Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and native species are vectors for many blood-borne diseases, including West Nile virus and several types of encephalitis. There is also growing concern about chikungunya, zika, and other diseases.
Mosquito Control for Your Yard
Fortunately, there are ways to manage mosquito populations. Our mosquito treatment for yards is the most effective. Our pest management professionals are trained to identify and control all mosquitoes. We understand the lifecycle and behavior of different species. For example, Eastern treehole mosquitoes (Aedes triseriatus) lay eggs in tree bark and rotten branches that hold water. Others attach eggs to rocks in rushing streams. However, most species prefer sites with standing water. Stagnant water in birdbaths and faulty gutters also frequently harbor mosquito eggs and larvae.
