Mosquito Prevention Tips
As a homeowner, you can provide the first layer of local mosquito control for your home and property. Regularly check ponds, bird baths, fountains, and plant catch trays for mosquito larvae and remove excess water from buckets and planters. Clean out gutters and repair leaky faucets to eliminate standing water on your property.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in still water, and just a bottle cap full of water can host up to 300 eggs! Standing water can help reduce the overall mosquito population on your property.
Keep your swimming pool clean. Drill small holes in the tire swing, trash cans, and recycling bins so they don’t collect water that can become a mosquito hatchery. Check your sprinkler system for leaks, and check the forecast to help water your lawn and garden.
Also, keep the grass cut as short as possible, pull weeds, and keep trim shrubs. Adult mosquitoes seek shady spots in overgrown vegetation to rest until their next attack.
Become as informed as possible about combating mosquitoes. Conscientious homeowners, renters, and professional mosquito control services are perfect partners in the fight against biters.
What Are Mosquito Control Services?
Our professional mosquito control services target the adult mosquito population, viable eggs, and larvae to reduce mosquito populations that can impact your recreation, health, and economy. Mosquitoes carry diseases like the Zika virus, West Nile virus,(Malaria) and others. Outbreaks of these diseases can have a crushing impact on local economies.
Beyond the potential for disease, mosquitoes can turn your garden or pool into a combat zone. We’ve designed our mosquito control services so you can get back outdoors, doing what you love, free from the biting and itching caused by mosquitoes.

Seasonal Mosquito Control Services
Mosquito behavior can differ based on geographic location and changes based on the season. If you live in a warmer climate, mosquitoes can be a problem for up to eight or nine months of the year. Those who live in areas with four seasons may notice that mosquitoes are most active during the long, warm days of summer. However, they may not disappear during the winter. Instead, some mosquitoes migrate to warmer climates, while some actually hibernate.
As mosquito behavior changes with the season, our service professionals change their tactics to stay ahead of them. For example, we seek out sheltering and hibernating adults to eliminate them before they begin hunting again in the spring.
Mosquito Joe provides seasonal mosquito control services that adapt to your property’s changing needs throughout the year. Our winter pest control services can help you get ahead of the biters for spring.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mosquitoes
Where do mosquitoes hide around your outdoor space?
Mosquitoes like shade, shelter, and moisture. Areas around the yard that offer these are where you’re most likely to find them hiding. Trees, bushes, long grass, and debris piles are the most common spots where mosquitoes will congregate on your property. Locating and eliminating (where possible) these refuges is a critical part of our mosquito control services.
What’s the best way to get rid of mosquitoes?
Mosquito control services for yards are one of the most effective ways to eliminate mosquitoes. Our yard treatments will eliminate biting insects for up to 21 days. You can also help by taking the steps mentioned in the answer above to make your property less inviting to mosquitoes.(adding in something fun like “no you may not stay for dinner!”
Why do mosquitoes bite me so much?
If mosquitoes seem to target you, it may be your blood type that attracts them! Several factors, including carbon dioxide, scent (such as sweat and lactic acid), blood type, and dark colors, can lure female mosquitoes to you. However, blood type may be one key reason mosquitoes bite you more often than others. Believe it or not, mosquitoes are more attracted to people with O-type blood than to other blood types.
Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite to drink blood. The female needs protein and nutrients to develop eggs. If you find you’re getting bitten more than those around you, it may be your tasty blood. Since changing your blood type is not an option, schedule our mosquito control services so you can enjoy your backyard, pool, and patio in peace!
Do bug-zappers work to control mosquitos?
Blacklight insect electrocution devices, aka “bug zappers,” are very popular. However, while these bug zappers are highly effective for killing flying insects in general, only a tiny fraction are actually mosquitoes.
An independent study conducted by Notre Dame found that only 4.0 – 6.4% of insects killed daily by the bug zappers were mosquitoes. The study showed that, unfortunately, such devices were far more effective at killing beneficial insects than providing effective mosquito control and relief.
