Mosquito

Our remedy for mosquito control

First, contact us. Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn, so avoid going outdoors during those times. Use insect repellent containing DEET on exposed skin whenever or wherever mosquitoes are likely to bite. To eliminate or reduce mosquito breeding sites, replace or freshen all standing water daily. This includes bird baths, ponds and unfiltered pools. Remove unnecessary vegetation and any trash from around standing water sources that cannot be eliminated. Make sure screens are in place on all doors, windows and other openings. Keep your pets protected, too, with preventative medication obtained by your veterinarian.

How to Identify a Mosquito

Appearance

Pale brown with whitish stripes across abdomen; narrow oval shape; 1/4 to 3/8″ in length. Females are easily recognized by long thin proboscis, or mouthparts, extending from the head.

Habitat

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water sources such as storm drains, old tires, children’s wading pools and birdbaths. They are one of the best known and most detested summer pests. Female mosquitoes bite humans and feed on our blood, leaving behind welts and itching bite sites. Mosquito-borne diseases in the United States are on the rise, including chikungunya, encephalitis, and most notably, the potentially fatal West Nile Virus.

Diet

Female mosquitoes feed on our blood. Male mosquitoes feed on plant nectars.

Or Let us identify it for you

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
