Why start controlling mosquitoes in early Spring?

You start early whack the buggers, then you keep them suppressed for the rest of the season with reapplications every 3 weeks. It more effective the earlier you start because:

1. We treat foliage as mosquitoes need the nectar from the leaves for food (blood is just for laying eggs and only the female bites).

2. With minimal foliage in the Spring, statistically speaking the mosquitoes are likely to encounter our barrier spray SOONER rather than later.

Why is the Best Mosquito Control Important?

Mosquito control is critical in disease prevention. Mosquitoes transfer diseases such as Yellow Fever, Malaria, Dengue, plus the West Nile virus. We need to protect ourselves from these viruses by protecting our yards. Without proper mosquito control, yards can become breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

How can mosquitoes transfer disease? You are the meal for the female bloodsucking mosquito, who, in turn is feeding the eggs. When the female needs to find food it goes for you, the blood meal. Male mosquitoes only suck on nectar and hang out in shady areas of you yard, waiting to reproduce. As a mosquito flies closer to its target, it looks for the movement of dark objects. Once it finds you, it lands, inserts its proboscis and probes for blood vessels beneath the skin. When it finds one, it injects saliva into the wound. The saliva contains an anticoagulant that ensures a steady, smooth flow of blood. Unfortunately, the mosquito’s saliva also may contain pathogens such as malaria parasites or encephalitis virus. This is how mosquitoes transmit disease.

Ready for Spring This Mosquito cant wait-1

What other reasons why it is important for mosquito control? It hits you psychologically, you are constantly looking over your shoulder wondering when the next mosquito is flying for their next meal of the day. To be perfectly honest, mosquitoes are annoying and can ruin your time outside which is why you won’t 

Research shows that mosquitoes began to emerge in New Jersey in April. Prior to April there are few things that as a homeowner you can do yourself to control mosquitoes.venture out during those dusk hours.

  • Empty all buckets of standing water.
  • Clean your gutters (or call a gutter guy to clean them for you). Leaves clog the gutters and downspouts, leading to an area where the female can lay her eggs.
  • Check areas around your home where water pools, fill these areas with topsoil and some grass seed. Keep the water pooling to a minimum. A mosquito only needs a capful of water to lay her eggs.
  • Remember any water outside at your property can lead to a mosquito breeding ground.
Mosquito Breeding Ground

While the above is important, once mosquitoes become adults, they are on the underside of bushes hiding and  waiting for you to come outside. This is where you need a professional company to control the mosquitoes.

Mosquito companies will spray the underside of the bushes, trees, under decks and around the foundation of your dwelling to manage the mosquitoes in your yard.

For more information please contact Curren Environmental. It’s time to learn more about mosquitoes and controlling these annoying pests in your yard – take back you yard this spring.

What are Mosquitoes Up To Now?

What do Mosquitoes do in the winter time? Mosquitoes are cold blooded creatures and do not generally bite in temperatures below 50F. Most male mosquitoes cannot survive the Northern winter months. Females on the other hand actually gain some size and can make it through the cold weather. Before the cold weather the females lay all their eggs. The eggs will winterize and can sustain through the winter. The eggs hibernate as embryos.

What is the life cycle of the Mosquito?blood sucking mosquito.jpg

  • Lay the eggs (in water)
  • Eggs become larvae (in water)
  • Larvae become Pupae
  • Pupae become adult mosquitoes

For more detailed information on the mosquito life cycle click here.

Mosquitoes don’t exactly bite humans, they feed on them. The female needs the protein to produce her eggs. Mosquitoes can spread disease; the diseases are often viruses that are picked up by the mosquito when it feeds on an infected host. When that mosquito then feeds on another host, it can spread that virus and so on. Moving from person to person until the eggs are laid.

Spring is in the air…warm weather and rainy days are ahead. Seasonal Mosquito Remediation packages are available through Curren Environmental.
