“Mosquito Control: How Does it Work?”
It’s hard to believe that mosquitoes—those bloodsucking pests that ruin late night outdoor activities—are considered the most dangerous animal in the world. Surely that title should go to something more intimidating, like a shark or a lion.
But no, it goes to the tiny mosquito—a pest we could swat if we had the reflexes for it.
Unfortunately, there are many reasons why mosquitoes are easily the most dangerous animals. They carry serious diseases, and they cause more deaths than any other animal on the planet.
These bugs fly from one place to another, picking up and carrying viruses along the way. When a mosquito bites into a person’s skin, there’s a chance that they’re also transmitting various kinds of diseases as they feed on your blood.
You need to know a little about mosquito control if you wish to keep your family safe from this threat.
Mosquito Control Overview
Mosquito control works by keeping in mind the four life stages of the pest: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. You can use different methods to try and disrupt this cycle, to reduce the mosquito population in your environment.
If you want to take care of the mosquito problem yourself, the first thing you need to do is find out where they’re laying their eggs. Eliminate all forms of stagnant water around your home. Mosquitoes don’t need much water to lay their eggs. A small bottle cap that’s left outside can hold enough water to hold mosquito eggs.
Remove any puddles of water or standing water around your yard. This will reduce the mosquito breeding sites. If you have unusable tires in the yard, make sure you puncture them to prevent water from forming inside.
As for mosquito larvae, there are chemical as well as natural options to control them.
For adult mosquitoes, try trimming grass and shrubs so that they will have fewer places to rest. Also consider using insect repellent or insecticides.
