Unfortunately, mosquitoes are nearly impossible to eliminate without professional help. If you have a problem with mosquitoes, trying to treat them yourself could be a nightmare.

Why Do I Have A Mosquito Problem?

Mosquitoes breed on or near standing water. This ultimately means that any source of standing water may become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Because the female mosquito only requires a thin film of water in which to lay her eggs, tin cans, bird feeders, watering cans, outdoor play equipment, and clogged gutters may harbor these unpleasant pests. Mosquitoes are also known to travel as much as 20 miles in search of a blood meal, so it is safe to presume that they may also become problematic where no water source can be located.

Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?

Mosquitoes are well known as transmitters of disease and illness to humans, domestic animals, and wildlife. They are persistent, annoying, and for many their bites are the cause of itchy, irritated skin. Among the viruses known to be carried by mosquitoes are Zika, West Nile, Malaria, Dengue Fever, and in some cases, Yellow Fever. They are also responsible for spreading the potentially fatal heartworm disease in dogs, cats, and other mammals.
