Mosquito Identification & Prevention

Are mosquitoes a problem in Texas?

The mosquito is one pest that everyone in Texas is familiar with. These tiny flying insects can be a big problem, particularly if you spend time outside because of their annoying and sometimes dangerous bites.

Mosquitoes have a straw-like mouth that females use to obtain blood meals, and males and females use to consume sweat liquids like honeydew and nectar. They also have fragile legs and elongated bodies.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

While not all mosquitoes are dangerous, as a whole, they are known as the most dangerous on earth. All over the world, mosquitoes spread dangerous and deadly diseases. In the United States, some mosquitoes can carry dog heartworm, Zika, dengue, malaria, chikungunya, and West Nile.

As stated, not all mosquitoes carry these diseases, and for the most part, a bite will result in itching around that bite site that lasts a day or two. But over scratching the bite sites can lead to a secondary infection.

People aren't the only ones affected by mosquitoes; dogs can also get heartworm from these pests. Because of this, you should make sure they are on a preventative prescribed by a veterinarian.

Where will I find mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes need two main things to survive — a few inches of standing water to reproduce and shade. They need shade because they can't survive long in direct sun, which is why they can usually be found in areas of thick foliage. Mosquitoes might also live in sheds, garages, and other outbuildings.

Why do I have a mosquito problem?

The most obvious reason you have high populations of mosquitoes on your property is that you have standing water. However, some factors attract mosquitoes to individuals themselves. These factors include:

  • O-type blood
  • Pregnancy
  • Sweating
  • Producing more CO2 than others
  • Wearing dark-colored clothing

How do I get rid of mosquitoes?

When it comes to mosquitoes, many people will try to use candles and other store-bought products to keep them away. While these methods might be effective in keeping mosquitoes away for a little while, they won't get rid of them entirely or even for a long period. To do this, you have to get to the source of the problem.

The best way to get rid of mosquitoes in Arlington is with help from the experts at All Season Pest Control. We treat these pests using a backpack fogger and a granular application if needed. Not only do we treat properties for everyday use, but we also provide services for special events. We will apply treatments a couple of days before your event for the full effect.

How can I prevent mosquitoes in the future?

To prevent mosquitoes on your property, you want to focus on removing the factors that attract them and allow them to reproduce, including removing standing water, using filters in birdbaths and ponds, clearing gutters, and not overwatering plants. You should also remove as much shade as possible by keeping grass and foliage cut short.

You can also make yourself less attractive to mosquitoes by:

  • Wearing light-colored clothing.
  • Avoiding alcohol when outside. 
  • Showering and changing your clothes if you have been sweating.
  • Using an outdoor fan to keep them away as they aren't strong flyers.

Be sure to contact a professional and effective mosquito control expert in Arlington for any problem infestations.
