In the United States, mosquitoes have been known to spread:
- West Nile Virus
- Eastern equine encephalitis
- Dog heartworm
Mosquitoes become infected with viruses and other pathogens when they get blood from an infected animal or person. The germ then multiplies in the mosquito, and then, the mosquito bites another person or animal. This spreads the disease from the mosquito’s saliva to the blood of the next victim.
Effective treatment for mosquitoes involves targeting the places where mosquitoes breed and their resting sites. A good mosquito control program includes treating the vegetation on your property and using larvicide products to eliminate mosquito larvae. The specific products and application will depend on the features of your property and water sources where mosquitoes may be breeding.
Mosquitoes can become a problem in the yard, and indoors, if they find their way inside the house. The most effective mosquito control includes the application of the right products, as well as taking steps to reduce mosquito breeding grounds and keep them out of the house.
In addition to mosquito treatment, you can prevent mosquitoes by:
- Eliminating sources of standing water
- Removing old tires, planters, and other containers where water collects
- Getting rid of yard debris piles
- Repairing window screens
- Closing doors and windows
- Fixing plumbing leaks that may provide water sources
Although there are steps you can take to reduce mosquito breeding and feeding sites, eliminating these pests on your own is nearly impossible. Your mosquito control specialist can treat your yard and assess your property to find elements that may be attracting mosquitoes and encouraging them to stay and breed in your yard.
