What are Mosquitoes?

mosquitoMosquitoes are small flying insects with long legs that thrive mostly in humid weather and breed in stagnant water. Although a few species don’t cause any harm or could be useful to humanity. Mosquitoes are considered as one of the most deadly insects because of their ability to transmit disease-causing viruses. The females of most species are ectoparasites (living outside the host they feed on) who use tube-like mouths (proboscis) to suck blood through the skin of their hosts.

Even though the sucked blood is so little to be of much concern to the victim, the mosquito’s saliva often causes an irritating rash that constitutes a relatively serious nuisance. Of much seriousness however, is the role played by many species as diseases vectors.

In moving from host to host, some mosquitoes transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, vika virus and filariasis.

Mosquitoes feed heavily mostly at dawn and at dusk. During the heat of the day most species look for cool places such as the underside of leaves to rest waiting for the cooler evenings. However, they may still bite when disturbed.

Mosquito Prevention

Prevention is the key to controlling mosquito populations around your home. You can take these preventive measures yourself.

  • Get rid of stagnant water: Pools of standing water around your home are breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Dump out flower pots and children’s toys making sure to empty out anything that holds water.
  • Clean your gutters: Clogged gutters and drains are also common breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
  • Trim back vegetation. Mosquitoes feast on plant nectar when they’re not on the prowl for blood. They therefore spend a lot of time in tall grasses or around shrubs and bushes.
  • Clear up dead vegetation: Remove yard debris such as twigs, branches, leaves and grass clippings that have piled up around your home as they become places for mosquitoes to breed.

Professional Mosquito Control

pest-treatmentIf these preventive measures do not give you satisfactory results then you need to get the help of trained and certified professionals here at Pest Control Perth Quote. We can provide barrier spray treatments that kill adult mosquitoes, as well as larvicides that kill mosquito larvae.

Most barrier spray treatments contain either pyrethin (a botanical pesticide derived from driedchrysanthemum plants) or pyrethriods, a synthetically produced insecticide that mimics the chemistry of naturally occurring pyethrin.

Pyrethroid spray is used more often and considered to be more effective due to fact that the pyrethrin breaks down quickly when exposed to either moisture or sunlight.

The barrier spray is usually applied to vegetation with a backpack sprayer. It works by paralyzing and then killing mosquitoes when they come into contact with the fumes.

Larvicides are an effective option for treating water bodies such as backyard ponds, ditches and lakes. The commonly used larvicide is BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), a naturally occurring bacterium, that can be applied to water via dissolvable briquettes, backpack sprayers and even aircraft.

Mosquito Misting Systems

If you require a more constant mosquito control option, and automatic misting system may be the perfect choice for you and your property. It automatically releases a 30-second spray 2-4 times daily and kills or repels mosquitoes in all treated areas. This Mosquito Misting System is made up of an inconspicuous nylon tubing which connects strategically placed, corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated, stainless-steel nozzles. They are filled, serviced and prepared for winter by our professionals, so you’ll never need to lift a finger.

Mosquito Control Perth QuoteIf you prefer to avoid all synthetic chemicals, our Pest Control experts can provide you with different organic solutions available as an alternative for mosquito control. An all-natural mosquito treatment is applied to the areas of your property that mosquitoes are known to visit and feed. It is made up of essential oils and has a slight botanical fragrance that dissipates within a few hours of application. Since this all-natural mosquito control breaks down more quickly, it will need to be applied every 14 days for continuous protection.

Whichever method you prefer, Pest Control Perth Quote is competent to handle all your mosquito ridding needs with spray barriers, misting systems, or natural mosquito control. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation or visit.
