The Benefits Of Professional Mosquito Control In Suffolk County

Whether grilling in your backyard or relaxing in your hammock, enjoying your outdoor space can be challenging when mosquitoes are present. You’re constantly swatting and continuously itching, and your outdoor space has just turned into a war zone. What do you do?

If you’re like most people, you immediately whip out the cans of bug spray and citronella candles. These methods are temporarily effective. However, doesn’t it seem like every time you spray a group of mosquitoes, the population doubles or triples? While your efforts to keep mosquitoes away may be frustrating, they’re vital in preventing the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses.

As a Suffolk County resident, mosquitoes can quickly take over your property if you let them. It is essential to understand that you deserve to enjoy your living space, indoors or outdoors, without mosquitoes spoiling the fun. As your Suffolk County pest control, at A&M Quality Pest Control, mosquito control services are our specialty. Contact us to get your services started today.

The Environmental Purpose Of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are pollinators, despite popular belief. Flower nectar, rather than blood, is what mosquitoes prefer to eat. Mosquitoes spread pollen from flower to flower as they consume nectar, like bees or butterflies. This fertilization helps plants produce seeds and reproduce. Only after mating does a female mosquito look for a blood meal to provide the protein for her eggs. Males never bite and only consume flower nectar.

In addition to pollination, mosquitoes are an essential component of the food chain because they are important prey for a variety of other animals, including hummingbirds and bats, which depend on small flying insects and spiders as their primary sources of food. Thus, despite being a nuisance to us humans, mosquitoes, like all other species, serve an ecological purpose.

The good news is that only a small number of plant species rely entirely on mosquitoes for pollination, though there are some wild orchids for which mosquitoes are essential pollinators. 

However, just because mosquitoes are an important part of our environment, that doesn’t mean your Suffolk County home or business has to be where these pests contribute to the environment. Contact A&M Quality Pest Control to keep mosquito populations under control.

The Multiple Issues A Mosquito Infestation Can Create

At best, mosquito bites cause itchy, red welts that keep you scratching for days and can make any outdoor get-together you've planned with friends or family nearly impossible to enjoy. However, mosquitoes are proving to be a much more significant risk than was previously believed.

Throughout the years, outbreaks of the West Nile virus, malaria, yellow fever, dengue, and chikungunya have been responsible for various symptoms, including severe trauma and even death. These symptoms include diarrhea, muscle aches, fever, joint pain, lethargy, nausea, and vomiting. The death of a loved one due to a virus carried by mosquitoes can have a significant effect on an entire family; however, this tragedy cannot compare to the danger of the Zika virus. 

Because of the possibility that this new virus will cause microcephaly in unborn children, health agencies are on high alert in response to its discovery. This can lead to the delivery of a child who is born with a congenital disability, which may have lifelong repercussions for the mother, the father, and any other children who are present in the household—because of this, preventing mosquito bites is highly vital.

Even though not every mosquito that bites carries a virus, and not everyone who contracts a virus, develops dangerous symptoms, or any symptoms at all, mosquitoes need a reservoir to acquire these pathogens that humans spread. When we take measures to reduce the risk of being bitten, we make it more difficult for mosquitoes to find a source of infection.

There are numerous ways to avoid mosquito bites and reduce their population on your property. Still, nothing, in the end, has as significant an effect as a professional mosquito reduction service. This decrease in mosquito eggs, adult mosquitoes, and breeding sites have a cascading effect. If eggs do not hatch, the mosquitoes inside will not have the opportunity to lay additional eggs in your neighborhood. If you eliminate the eggs, the adult mosquitoes can't lay them in your yard, your neighbor's yard, or your neighbor's neighbor's yard.

You are eliminating mosquitoes whether they were born in your yard, someone else's yard in your neighborhood, or somewhere else. By doing so, you're lowering mosquito populations for everyone. Your neighborhood is the only neighborhood that matters because mosquitoes rarely travel farther than 300 yards in a single trip.

Mosquito Prevention Tips Everyone Ought To Know

Swatting and not being able to enjoy your outdoor space can get old really fast in regards to mosquitoes. Not only do these pests leave you with red, itchy bites, but a single bite from an infected mosquito puts you at risk of the many diseases they have the potential to carry, including West Nile virus and Zika virus. Because of the dangers associated with mosquitoes, you can safeguard yourself and your property from these pests.

  • Remove Standing Water: Water is necessary for mosquito breeding. The females only require about an inch of water to lay their eggs. The eggs can hatch in as little as a week or as long as a few months. The larvae will then develop into adults in eight to ten days. These larvae can quickly grow into a huge swarm due to how many eggs a female mosquito can lay at once. How do you prevent this from happening? Check your property for any areas with standing water, including old tires, toys, buckets, and bird baths. If you empty them, mosquitoes won't have a place to breed close to your house. When you're finished playing in an inflatable pool, flip it over and dispose of it. Keep your in-ground or above-ground pool covered and cleaned regularly.
  • Clear your yard of any clutter: When not searching for food, mosquitoes use bushes, tall grass, and cluttered areas to rest. The first step in preventing mosquitoes is to keep the grass short-mowed and the shrubs pruned; this will cause mosquitoes to seek out resting areas away from your property. Clearing the clutter from your yard can also eliminate their nesting areas. Move any toys or other clutter left on the lawn for several days to a protected area. It does more than prevent damage to them; it aids in avoiding mosquito infestations.
  • Utilize insect repellents: To avoid mosquitoes during the summer, you don't have to spend all your time inside. Try using natural methods to avoid bites, such as using essential oils for mosquitoes and dressing in light colors. While citronella candles can help keep mosquitoes at bay, to benefit from their effects, you need to sit right next to the candle. Place essential oils like eucalyptus and peppermint in small dishes to keep mosquitoes away. These oils are also effective against ticks and other annoying pests like fleas. However, using an insect repellent containing DEET is the most effective way to stay away from mosquitoes.

Even the most effective home remedies for mosquitoes fall short of professional pest control services. Mosquitoes are harmful, but you shouldn't have to spend every minute of the day inside to avoid them. A&M Quality Pest Control's mosquito control specialists can inspect your property for breeding grounds and apply curative and preventive treatments to stop pesky infestations.
