How Do Mosquitoes Suddenly Reappear When the Weather Improves?
It is a common misconception that mosquitoes completely die off during the winter and new mosquitoes appear from other places when the warmth arrives. By understanding a little more about mosquitoes, you can plan for your mosquito treatment so that your property and yard is protected throughout the busy mosquito season.
Mosquitoes and Their Eggs
Although adult mosquitoes will die off during the colder period of the year, the females will lay their final batch of eggs in as little as a half an inch of water, anywhere they find a safe environment. The eggs will be suspended from their development during the cooler period, but when the temperature increases, the eggs will begin to hatch and mosquitoes come back around again.
Mosquitoes are known to bring a range of dreadful diseases to humans including malaria and yellow fever, and our localized mosquitoes are also dangerous bringing dengue, chikungunya and more recently, the Zika virus.
Although it is only the female mosquito that bites humans, you must protect your property and the individuals who live there from these dreadful diseases. Mosquito treatment around your property will help form a barrier, ensuring that you will not be bitten around your home.
You will need to work closely with a professional mosquito treatment company to ensure they use professional tools and green chemicals to form these essential barriers.
You must carry out your own work to ensure that you are not allowing any water to sit for more than a day or two around your property, as old water attracts mosquitoes to your premises. Any area where water collects is a potential disaster zone, and you should change your bird bath water everyday.
The mosquito repellents that you can purchase from your local superstores are helpful, but will not contain your property sufficiently to guard against all mosquitoes, which is why professional help is still required.
