Mosquito Means 'Little Fly'
Mosquito is a Spanish word that means “little fly,” or “little gnat.” We think a better name would be, “most annoying insect on the planet.” Whether they are called this or not, we all know this to be the case. What you might not know is that not all mosquitoes feed on blood. In fact, only baby mosquitoes need blood to survive. Female mosquitoes use their needle-nosed mouthparts to steal blood from humans and animals in order to provide nutrients for their eggs. They then lay these eggs inside pools of stagnant water around local properties. We will talk more in a bit about how you can deal with these pests and what professional methods work best to cull active infestations in your yard.
Mosquitoes Are Considered One Of The Most Dangerous Animals
When you see a mosquito near your Alexandria home, do you immediately cower in fear? Probably not. These pests do not look scary. However, the truth is, they are among the most dangerous creatures on the planet. Mosquitoes are responsible for around one million deaths each year! Most of these cases occur in third-world countries where access to life-saving medicine is limited. Although less dangerous here in the United States, mosquitoes can still spread blood-borne diseases. When outbreaks occur, these pests are vectors that will make problems worse. Thankfully, there are options for mosquito control to make sure these pests stay away from your property. We will talk more about ways to deal with different types of mosquitoes in Alexandria in just a bit.
Do-It-Yourself Mosquito Control Can Fall Short
If you are looking for the best way to repel mosquitoes, you have to consider a few things. First, you need to know that these pests breed in pools of stagnant water. Even if you remove all potential breeding grounds on your property, however, these pests can still make babies on adjacent properties and may fly over to bite you and your family. Second, mosquito sprays can be harmful when used improperly. Unless you are a trained professional, you should leave these products to the experts. Finally, keeping up with basic mosquito prevention is difficult and some natural ways to repel mosquitoes only work so much. Keeping all of this in mind, we would like to offer you an easier way to combat these Alexandria pests.
