This blog will explain the life cycle of mosquitoes and the trouble they can cause on your property. Read on to learn more about this common pest, the reasons they're hard to control, and the best way to deal with them from the pest professionals at All-Safe Pest & Termite.

The Life Cycle Of Mosquitoes

Learning about the life cycle of the most common types of mosquitoes in Texas can help you better understand how they work and why they are so challenging to eliminate. The mosquito life cycle goes through the following stages:

  • First, a female mosquito must bite and digest blood to lay eggs.
  • She will then seek a stagnant body of water and lay the eggs.
  • After the eggs hatch, the larvae feed and develop into pupae in around five days.
  • Three to five days later, the pupae become adults.
  • The entire cycle takes less than two weeks to complete.

Part of the trouble with eliminating mosquitoes is that if you do not address all of the stages in the life cycle, the problem will never go away. At All-Safe Pest & Termite, our team understands how to treat mosquitoes at all stages, helping to keep your yard free from these troublesome pests.

Are All Mosquitoes Bad?

Regarding mosquitoes, only the females bite to take a blood meal from people or animals. Some of these mosquitoes are known as vectors. Vectors pick up germs (parasites and viruses) from people and animals they bite, then pass that germ on to the next person or animal they bite.

Some of the diseases you can get from mosquitoes in our area include:

  • West Nile virus
  • Dengue
  • Chikungunya
  • Encephalitis
  • Tularemia
  • Heartworm (in pets)

Most of the time, when you get a mosquito bite, you will only be left with a red itchy welt. The trouble is, you never know which mosquitoes are carrying disease-causing pathogens. The safest way to prevent mosquito-borne illness is to contact All-Safe Pest & Termite for professional mosquito control

Why Mosquitoes Are So Difficult To Control

Controlling mosquitoes is challenging without professional help. Most products sold over the counter only work in a small area and can’t eliminate all of the stages of the mosquito life cycle. To successfully get rid of mosquitoes in your yard, you must eliminate them from eggs to adults.

Mosquitoes in our area can also breed just about anywhere there is standing water, including inside clogged gutters, old tires, children's toys, and even puddles. Mosquitoes lay up to 300 eggs at a time, making controlling them even more difficult.

Working with a professional pest control company is the best way to get rid of mosquitoes outside. At All-Safe Pest & Termite, our service professionals use the most effective products to eliminate mosquitoes and their eggs. Contact us today for assistance with your mosquito problem.
