Like many other areas around the United States, Coachella Valley has a mosquito problem that can be difficult to control. Mosquitoes make even the most beautiful day difficult to bear, and if they infest areas in and around your home, you may not feel like going outside at all. Working with a professional pest control company can help you reduce the mosquito population and allow you to enjoy being outside again.
In order to lay eggs, female mosquitoes need protein from blood. This is why they, and not male mosquitoes, are the only ones that bite. One mosquito can lay up to 300 eggs at a time, which is how the mosquito population quickly spirals out of control. It does not take long for a given area to become overrun by these little pests.
There are fewer mosquitoes flying around in the afternoon, because temperatures are at their highest and most bugs are looking for a place to hide out. Therefore, if you are planning an outdoor activity in a mosquito prone area, it may be best to go out when temperatures are at their peak.
Four chemicals can keep mosquitoes at bay; they are DEET, IR3535, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus, and Picaridin.
Every year, a million people across the world die from diseases carried by mosquitoes. In addition to humans, dogs and horses are at risk. As a result, it is crucial to figure out how to deal with a mosquito problem quickly and efficiently.
If you truly want to cut back on the number of mosquitoes around your property, it is important to get rid of standing water, as that is where mosquitoes lay eggs. There are also several plants that are known to repel mosquitoes, like catnip, citrosa and rosemary. Consider adding them to your landscaping in areas that you frequent, like along the walkway leading up to your home. Finally, spray your bushes, shrubs, and tall grasses with an insecticide. It is difficult to treat for flying pests, because they have to land on the product to be affected, but taking this step will help reduce the number of mosquitoes you have.
