Protect your Yard & Patio
Small flying insects, mosquitoes are one of the most well-known blood-feeding pests. Females use their proboscis (an elongated piercing mouthpart) to pierce the skin of warm-blooded animals and feed on their blood. After feeding, what is left behind on their human or animal host is a raised, red itchy welt. Through the feeding process, female mosquitoes can transmit and spread serious diseases and parasites that can make people and animals quite ill. The pathogens that mosquitoes spread cause these tiny, frail creatures to be one of the globe’s most deadly creatures.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on top of areas of standing water. Mosquitoes can use the top of a trash can lid or a large pond as a breeding site. The more standing water you have on your property, the more mosquitoes you will have. Lots of vegetation, tall grass, and other shady spots will increase mosquito activity. Mosquitoes rest during the day in dense vegetation that provides relief from the sun and hot temperatures.
Mosquitoes are relentless biting pests that take over outdoor space in large numbers.
