Now Is A Great Time To Be Thinking About Mosquito Control For Your Reno Yard

Mosquito season is about to kick into gear. Are you ready? Now is the time to start thinking about those little biters. Mosquitoes are irritating pests that can ruin your outdoor fun. But they're also a vector for dangerous viruses like West Nile virus, Zika virus, Chikungunya, yellow fever, malaria, dengue fever, and several forms of encephalitis. It is best to not allow these pests to live on your property. What? Can you do that? Can you actually keep mosquitoes off your property? Yes. Believe it or not, it is possible to prevent mosquitoes from biting you on your property. Let's take a look at how it works.

Why Mosquito Control Works

There are a few things you may not know about mosquitoes. Once you know them, you'll understand why you can trust mosquito control to keep mosquitoes from biting you in your yard.

  • Mosquitoes aren't great at flying. It wears them out. When they get worn out, they rest. Most of the time, mosquitoes are resting. This is why you can look outside and not see a single mosquito in your yard, and then step outside only to find yourself standing in a swarm. Those mosquitoes rest in your vegetation and other hiding spots until they see a potential source for a blood meal.

  • Mosquitoes aren't great at flying. Wait. Didn't we already say this? Yes, but it is important to say it again. Mosquitoes don't fly around your neighborhood looking for someone to bite. They slowly encroach upon your property. That means it takes time for new mosquitoes to replace the mosquitoes you've eliminated.

  • Mosquitoes aren't great at flying. Hold on. Why this again? Because it is important to understand that most mosquitoes will not travel more than a few hundred feet in their entire lifetime. The mosquitoes that bite you in your yard are often mosquitoes that hatched in your yard. When you take measures to prevent mosquitoes from hatching in your yard, you prevent mosquito bites.

  • Mosquitoes need sugar more than they need blood. Finally, something different! This one goes along with our first point. The reason mosquitoes are often found in vegetation is because they feed on the sap of plants and the nectar from flowers. This food source, along with the high humidity that is often found in areas of vegetation, makes your landscaping a highly attractive place for mosquitoes to hide.

One female mosquito can lay hundreds of eggs in your yard. If you eliminate that one mosquito, you are preventing a cloud of those irritating pests. And when you remove standing water from your property, you make it more difficult for that female mosquito to lay eggs on your property.

How Mosquito Control Works

Let's apply what we've learned. Mosquito control works because it eliminates mosquitoes in the locations they hide and it reduces potential locations mosquitoes use to breed. When you do this, you keep mosquitoes from hatching on your property, and you prevent them from waiting in hiding for you to come out for mealtime—their mealtime.
