Have you ever stood in your yard and wondered where all the mosquitoes are coming from? If you get a lot of mosquitoes in your yard, we're guessing you have. Mosquitoes are annoying insects. Today we'd like to help you with this question. There are many misconceptions about mosquitoes. One of the worst misconceptions of all is that mosquitoes fly from yard to yard in search of someone to bite. If you believe this, you may think that mosquitoes, and mosquito bites, are inevitable. We're here to tell you that they're not. You can reduce mosquitoes in your yard, and reducing mosquitoes can dramatically reduce how often you get mosquito bites. Here's how it works. More importantly, here are some tricks to help you keep mosquitoes away from your Plano property.

The Secret Mosquitoes Don't Want You To Know

When a mosquito hatches in your yard, it is likely to stay in your yard. Experts say that some mosquito species have a very limited flight range. Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (considered to be the most dangerous mosquitoes in the United States) hang out around man-made structures after hatching. While they can fly from yard to yard, they won't travel around your neighborhood in search of someone to bite. They're far too lazy for that. Well, to be fair to Aedes mosquitoes, it isn't that they're lazy; they're simple organisms, and all that flying takes a lot of energy.

Why is it important for you to understand that mosquitoes hang out on your property?

If mosquitoes were to come into your yard, bite you, and go back out of your yard, you wouldn't be able to do anything about them. But mosquitoes don't do this. They usually hatch in your yard and inflict bites on you in your yard. If you can find out where they're breeding, you can eliminate them before they bite you.

Where do mosquitoes breed?

Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus breed in standing water. They only need water that is an inch deep. A shallow puddle is more than enough. They'll also breed in objects that catch water. Here are a few locations to consider:

  • Toys left in the yard

  • Buckets, bowl, or cups

  • Clogged gutters

  • Kiddie pools

  • Pet dishes

  • Birdbaths

In many cases, you can remove objects from your yard or address conditions that are allowing rainwater to be captured. It is also possible to make a water source undesirable to mosquitoes, such as adding a water circulator to a birdbath.

What about your neighbor's mosquitoes?

All of the mosquitoes that bite you are not mosquitoes from your yard, especially if you have neighbors close by. But, when mosquitoes come into your yard, they won't stay in the air all the time. They're going to rest. When they rest, they can be eliminated. If you invest in mosquito services from All-Safe Pest & Termite, our licensed service professionals can apply an EPA-approved mist product to your landscaping and other key areas around your Plano property. This product works to take down simple organisms like mosquitoes. It is harmless to people, pets, and wildlife. When mosquitoes rest in your yard, they die.

What if I don't want mosquito misting?

If you don't want to have your landscaping sprayed, or you want to add extra protection for your property, we offer the installation of the In2Care system. This trapping system provides mosquitoes with ideal breeding sites. When female mosquitoes lay their eggs in these traps, the eggs are eliminated and the female mosquitoes don't live long after exposure to the product.
