What do mosquitoes look like?

Mosquitoes are thin insects with a pair of scaled wings and long legs. They have long proboscis that protrude from their heads and act as their mouths. Depending on their species, mosquitoes can be gray, black, brown, and white to name a few colors. They may also have color patterns or distinct markings. 

When are mosquitoes most active?

Very Active
Not Active

What do mosquitoes eat?

Male mosquitoes primarily feed on plant nectar; they do not bite humans or animals for blood meal. Female mosquitoes also feed on plant nectar, but they need blood from humans and animals to reproduce. 

Where do mosquitoes lay eggs?

Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in items that hold stagnant water, such as birdbaths, kids' toys, bottle caps, buckets, and pools of water.

What attracts mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are drawn to body heat and certain blood types. Female mosquitoes can detect their prey up to 150 feet away before landing and biting. Some studies suggest that female mosquitoes are attracted to individuals with blood type O, pregnant women, people who are exercising or sweating with an increased body temperature, and those who consume alcohol, which also raises body temperature.

Standing water is another major attractant. Anything that collects and holds rainwater is a potential breeding site. 

Are mosquitoes dangerous? 

When bitten by mosquitoes, people can experience anything from mild skin irritation to severe inflammation and swelling. Even more worrying is the risk of contracting serious diseases such as West Nile virus, Chikungunya, yellow fever, dengue fever, Zika virus, and others from mosquito bites. The World Health Organization has stated that over 50% of the global population is susceptible to mosquito-borne diseases.

How do I get rid of mosquitoes?

It is impossible to entirely rid your property of all mosquitoes, but you can significantly reduce the number of mosquitoes breeding and flying around with professional mosquito control from Lindsey Pest Services.

Our mosquito control is a year-round service that targets adult mosquitoes and includes treatment for areas where these pests breed. While we cannot completely eliminate mosquitoes, our treatments drastically reduce adult mosquitoes and stop mosquitoes' eggs from hatching into adults.
