About Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes range in size from 1⁄8 to ¾ inch long and are dark gray, brown or black in color. They have slim bodies and legs, and females have a long proboscis for consuming blood. There are more than 150 species of mosquitoes in the U.S. alone.

In addition to their annoying buzzing, mosquitoes can also inflict irritating bites and are some of the world’s deadliest pests. They’re capable of transmitting dangerous blood-borne diseases like West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), dengue fever, malaria, yellow fever, and pet heartworms. They also breed rapidly, making an infestation difficult to control if it isn’t addressed early.

Detecting Mosquitoes

Did you know female mosquitoes can lay up to 3,000 eggs in her lifetime? She only needs a thimble-sized amount of water to do so. To help keep mosquito populations low in your yard, make sure to remove all sources of stagnant water by cleaning your gutters frequently, maintaining your landscaping and dumping out toys after a rain shower. Wearing skin insect repellent can also help keep your family from being bitten by mosquitoes, and, of course, installing mosquito nets and insect screens will help keep them out of your house.
