Have you heard that mosquitoes can be dangerous? Are you aware that mosquitoes can transmit West Nile virus, malaria, Zika virus, dengue fever, yellow fever, and other harmful diseases? You are likely aware of this. But do you also know that not every mosquito that bites you will make you sick with one of these diseases? You can get a lot of miserable, itchy bites and not get sick. While it is certainly important to protect yourself and work to mitigate the threat of dangerous diseases, the greater purpose of mosquito control is to protect yourself from the misery mosquitoes can inflict on you and your family. Today, we're going to drill into this topic in a way you may never have heard before. Here is the best way to protect yourself from mosquitoes in Dallas, and why it works.

Mosquito Habitats

Do you know female mosquitoes are the only mosquitoes that bite you? It's true. Male mosquitoes don't bite. This may seem like a trivial thing to mention, but it actually isn't. When mosquitoes come into your yard, both male and female mosquitoes will feed on nectar and plant sap. Only the females draw blood. They do this in order to reproduce. We'll discuss the ramifications of having mosquitoes reproduce in your yard, but first, it is important to consider the fact that male and female mosquitoes want to get into the vegetation on your property to feed. This is where they can be controlled. Routine applications of a mosquito control product can knock down mosquitoes before they have a chance to bite you or reproduce in your yard.

Mosquito Eggs

A female mosquito can lay a hundred eggs at a time. That's a lot of misery for you and your family. If you don't have routine treatments to the vegetation, and other key hiding places where mosquitoes rest, the next factor to consider is breeding sites. We often tell homeowners in Dallas that a natural way to reduce mosquitoes is to remove standing water. If you don't have puddles, broadleaf plants that catch rainwater, or objects that are acting as containers for rainwater, you're going to have fewer issues with mosquitoes. But there is an even better way. If you offer a desirable breeding site for mosquitoes, you can knock down female mosquitoes and their eggs.

The Secret Mosquitoes Don't Want You To Know

It is easy to think that, because you have hundreds of mosquitoes in your yard, that the whole world is full of them. This is not the case. Most of those mosquitoes (if not all of them) are mosquitoes that hatched in your yard. How do we know this? Here are a few facts to consider.

  • The vast majority of mosquitoes in the world will never travel more than a few hundred feet. Yes...feet. They typically stay near the area where they hatched.

  • When you go outside, there is no way mosquitoes could get to you so quickly if they lived in your neighbor's yard.

  • Mosquitoes have terrible eyesight. Even if it takes a few minutes for a mosquito to get to you and start biting you, it wasn't that it saw you and came on over.

 

Do you see how it works? The mosquitoes in your yard are your mosquitoes. If you get rid of the mosquitoes in your yard and arrest mosquito development, it is possible to turn your yard into a mosquito-free zone. While a mosquito control professional can't guarantee that you'll have zero mosquitoes, we know how powerful mosquito control is in the mitigation of disease threats and annoying bites. We'd like for you to experience this for yourself.
