Some pests are known to cause trouble when the weather turns colder, while others like the mosquito start becoming more active as we get closer to the summer months. Mosquitoes are little flying insects that are grayish in color. Known for the itchy welts they leave behind, mosquitoes are commonly thought of as a nuisance pest, but this grossly underscores how dangerous they are for people. In fact, mosquitoes are considered to be one of the most deadly animals on the planet.
The main reason for this is due to their ability to transmit diseases and pathogens through their bite. While there are several possible diseases, the most common from a mosquito bite are malaria, dengue fever, West Nile virus, and eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).
Laws Of Attraction
Unlike other pests that you can somewhat avoid contact with, mosquitoes fly everywhere and are difficult to detect quickly enough before they bite you. To make matters worse, there are things people do without realizing it to make themselves even more attractive to mosquitoes. Some attraction trick factors to address include:
- Body Heat: This pest is attracted to your body heat, so it pays to remain as cool as possible in air conditioning. Also, be sure to hydrate regularly to better regulate your body temperature.
- Clothing Choices: Since mosquitoes can't see well, they remain focused on bright colors. When humans wear dark colors, this makes them stand out in comparison to the plants and sunlight surrounding them, making them easier targets.
Along with your trick attraction factors, there are things on your property that naturally draw mosquitoes in, which should be addressed. The two most important ones are:
- Standing Water: Mosquitoes crave water sources almost as much as they crave your blood. If there's standing water on the property, whether it's a clogged gutter or a pool of water near the foundation of your home, mosquitoes are interested in sticking around.
- Unkempt Yard: The wilder your yard and plant life is, the more likely mosquitoes are to come and play. That's because tall grass and vegetation offer sun protection for mosquitoes. As such, proper landscaping will go a long way for this pest and other pests that might be interested.
Without a doubt, the lack of a professional mosquito control program is a surefire way to always be at risk of a mosquito problem. A professional plan will boast the resources needed to not only limit their attraction to your property but also remove any existing mosquitoes from the premises effectively.
