Have Questions about Mosquitoes and how to get rid of them?
If you have mosquitoes laying their eggs nearby, it’s likely that you’ll be forced to deal with mosquitoes swarming around your home or business. A large amount of mosquitoes around your home or business makes sitting outdoors extremely difficult, and you may feel unable to use your outdoor space for fear of potential health risks.
According to the World Health Organization, the COVID-19 Coronavirus CANNOT be spread through mosquito bites. Click the button below to visit the WHO for more information about COVID-19 and the transmission of COVID-19 Coronavirus.
Mosquitoes are small flying insects with a dark, slender body, filmy wings, and three pairs of long delicate legs. Female mosquitoes come equipped with an elongated mouthpiece that is designed to pierce the skin of humans and mammals so they can feed on their blood. This blood helps to stimulate the production of their eggs. The actual bite of the mosquito is generally painless. It is the saliva introduced during the biting process that causes an itchy reaction later on.
There are many different sub-species of mosquitoes located in Colorado. Your Guardian Pest Management service technicians will identify the species and get to work, keeping these annoying invaders out of your home or business. Mosquitoes can carry are West Nile and Eastern equine encephalitis.
Female mosquitoes like to lay their eggs in standing water, either in the damp areas surrounding rivers, lakes, or ponds or in areas around humans where standing water has collected. Our Exterminators explain if you regularly leave buckets filled with water, birdbaths out in the spring, or have low patches in your lawn or parking lot that collects water, you can expect that it will quickly become a haven for mosquito eggs. Mosquitoes are very tenacious and will lay their eggs in tiny amounts of standing water.
The best way to prevent mosquitoes is to ensure there is no standing water on your property. Walk around and dump out water from containers. By taking control of their breeding ground, you can cut off the mosquito eggs and larvae before they can hatch into full-grown adults.
After you’ve removed all the standing water, take steps to ensure that water cannot collect again. Store empty containers indoors, and work with your neighbors to get rid of standing water throughout your neighborhood.
