We understand that mosquitoes are a real problem for many people
A mosquito will cause more than irritation when they prick your exposed skin. They are one of the most dangerous pests in North America, and they can transmit serious diseases that can harm both humans and animals. Moreover, mosquitoes can spoil your outdoor activities, like grilling, playing in the yard, as well as gardening.
With the right conditions, mosquitoes can be the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you reduce the number of mosquitoes in your home’s compound for your health and comfort.
Mosquitoes are very resilient insects, even though they have a fragile appearance. They can be easily identified by their slender bodies, with one pair of scaled wings, long legs, and have an approximate size of ¼”. The grayish-brown or brown mosquito without distinctive markings is the one that causes West Nile Virus.
Female mosquitoes normally draw blood from different animals, and they rest during the day, and then feed at nighttime or dusk.
One thing about mosquitoes is that they love water, and they normally breed in stagnant water, like in:
- Small pools
- Water in tree holes
- Leaves of plants
- Drainage ditches, among others

FAQs about Fayetteville mosquito control
What kind of diseases do mosquitoes carry?

In other parts of the world, mosquitoes are known to spread serious diseases like dengue fever and malaria. Certain diseases spread by mosquito, like the West Nile virus can lead to serious conditions like encephalitis. In 2016, we had the issue of the Zika virus, which was transmitted by the yellow-fever mosquito called Aedes aegypti.
Can I control mosquitoes around my home?
Yes, that’s possible by stopping the breeding process. As we said earlier, mosquitoes love breeding in stagnant water. A single teaspoon of water can produce up to 300 mosquitoes. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you eliminate stagnant water from buckets, birdbaths, tires, gutters, inflatable pools, and pots. Ensure that you cover the outdoor puddles with dirt. In addition to this, you can put screens on doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from breeding inside shower puddles and water glasses.
What’s the best way to protect me and my family from mosquitoes?
According to the CDC, you should protect yourself with an insect repellant that’s EPA-registers. Ensure that you follow all the label directions, particularly when applying it to your children. You should never use such repellants on infants below two months old. Consider using alternative natural insect repellants, like the one with geraniol and citronella, or oils with rosemary, cedar, lemongrass, cinnamon, and peppermint. You should also note that natural insect repellants tend to wear off very fast. Wear lightweight long sleeves and pants, as well as full-body coverage shoes. Lastly, make sure that you use mosquito netting to cover baby carriers and strollers.
