There are few people around the world who haven’t had an experience with a mosquito, and these annoying bugs can cause irritation from their bites, as well as disease transmittal of maladies like dengue fever, zika virus, and malaria. Mosquitoes can even transmit West Nile virus. These and other mosquito-transmitted diseases can prove fatal to humans, as well as toxic to dogs and horses.
Mosquitoes live in a variety of environments, so it’s not just the pools of standing water in the humid South where you’ll find these deadly insects. From swamps and marshes to freshwater lakes and streams, mosquitoes make their homes – and lay their eggs – just about everywhere.
Your Home Probably has Mosquito Breeding Sites
Many residents of Texas already know it’s important to eliminate areas of standing water around the home to reduce the likelihood of mosquito breeding. However, it’s not just that leftover puddle from last week’s rain that can cause problems.
You may also see mosquitoes breed in these common areas of your home:
- Holes in trees
- Your children’s toys
- Inside old tires
- Around potted plants and their saucers
As you can see, you might have mosquitoes lurking around your yard, even if it hasn’t rained recently and you don’t see any puddles or muddy ground around your home. The professionals at BugHead Pest Control are here to inspect your property and make sure you don’t have a hidden mosquito problem.
When are Mosquitoes Dangerous?
One of the reasons it’s important to have a professional insect control professional inspect your property for mosquitoes is because they’re egg-laying creatures, and there could be eggs and larvae just waiting to infest your home with clouds of disease-carrying mosquitoes.
Mosquitoes have four life cycles including eggs, larvae, pupa, and adult stages. When a mosquito bites you, it’s a female biting you as she feeds on your blood (or the blood of your pets).
Did you know? Mosquito eggs can survive in dry conditions for months, so a dry yard isn’t 100% protection against mosquitoes.
Life Cycle Of A Mosquito
For instance, Culex tarsalis, a common California (USA) mosquito, might go through its life cycle in 14 days at 70° F and take only 10 days at 80° F. On the other hand, some species have naturally adapted to go through their entire life cycle in as little as four days or as long as one month
How long does it take mosquitoes to breed?
Male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar alone, while females extract the blood of hosts in order to develop and nourish eggs. Most mosquitoes lay their eggs directly into water. Others lay their eggs near bodies of water but not within them. Eggs will hatch into larvae within 24 to 48 hours.
