Mosquito control and extermination FAQ

Signs of a mosquito infestation include an increase in the number of mosquito bites received, buzzing sounds, and standing water, which serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. If you have any concerns about a mosquito infestation, it’s best to consult a professional pest control service for guidance.

Professional pest control services often use a combination of techniques to handle mosquitoes. These may include identifying and treating breeding sites, applying insecticides or larvicides, and possibly introducing biological controls, like certain types of fish that eat mosquito larvae.

When selecting a mosquito removal service, consider the company’s reputation, experience, and customer reviews. Ask about their treatment methods, guarantees, and whether they provide free inspections or estimates. It’s also essential to ensure that they are licensed and insured.

If you’re struggling with a mosquito problem, don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation. Our trained professionals are ready to help you reclaim your outdoor space from these pesky insects.

What attracts mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are attracted by carbon dioxide and other chemicals emitted in human breath and sweat. They are also attracted to heat and dark colors. Standing water is particularly enticing for mosquitoes, as it is ideal for them to lay their eggs.

Why do mosquitoes attack some people but not others?

Research has suggested mosquitoes are more attracted to certain people due to blood type, the amount of carbon dioxide produced, body temperature, and certain chemicals in sweat. However, it’s worth noting that mosquitoes can bite all people; some people may be more attractive targets.

What are diseases transmitted by mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes can transmit diseases, including West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, Dengue, and Malaria. The ability to transfer these diseases varies significantly among different mosquito species.

What are the types of mosquitoes found in Fresno and Clovis, CA?

In Central California, some of the most common mosquito species include the Culex mosquito (the house mosquito), the Aedes mosquito, and the Anopheles mosquito.

Culex Mosquito (House Mosquito)

The Culex mosquito, often called the house mosquito, is a common species throughout the world. Female Culex mosquitoes are known to bite humans and animals, and they are vectors of several diseases, including West Nile virus and St. Louis encephalitis virus. They are most active from dusk to dawn and typically breed in standing water.

Aedes Mosquito

The Aedes mosquito is another widespread species, notable for being a daytime biter. They transmit several serious diseases, including dengue fever, Zika virus, yellow fever, and chikungunya. Aedes mosquitoes breed in small, often man-made water sources, like buckets, birdbaths, and discarded tires.

Anopheles Mosquito

The Anopheles mosquito is best known as the primary vector of malaria. While malaria is not a significant concern in the United States today, the Anopheles mosquito is still found nationwide. They typically bite between dusk and dawn and breed in clean, unpolluted water.

Please note that while the types of mosquitoes described above are commonly associated with these diseases, the presence of a disease in a specific area also depends on many other factors. In addition, not every mosquito of these types is a carrier of these diseases. Therefore, always follow local public health guidelines and recommendations for preventing mosquito bites and controlling mosquitoes in your area.

What are the best ways to prevent mosquitoes?

  1. Eliminate Standing Water: Mosquitoes breed in standing water. Regularly check and empty items that can hold water, such as flower pots, bird baths, kiddie pools, and gutters.
  2. Use Mosquito Repellents: Use EPA-registered insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
  3. Cover Up: When outside, especially during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active, wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks.
  4. Maintain Yard: Regularly mow the lawn and trim back vegetation. Mosquitoes rest in tall grasses and shrubs.

What are the best ways to control mosquitoes?

  1. Use of Insecticides: Insecticides can control adult mosquitoes, and larvicides can control larvae.
  2. Mosquito Traps: Traps that emit substances similar to human breath or skin can attract and trap mosquitoes.

What are some DIY methods to control mosquitoes?

  1. Citronella Candles or Torches: These can be effective for small outdoor areas.
  2. Planting Mosquito-Repelling Plants: Certain plants, such as citronella, lemongrass, marigolds, and basil, are believed to repel mosquitoes.
