How Do I Know I Have Mosquitos?
Call the Experts
Before using any DIY chemical products or other home remedy techniques on your property, TermiGuard will send one of its experienced pest management professionals to do a full inspection of your property, identifying the sources of activity for mosquitos or any other bugs.
But even before you call TermiGuard, there are a few things to look at to determine whether or not you truly do have a mosquito infestation.
For starters, mosquitos are usually less than half an inch long, and the females have a distinctive proboscis, which looks a bit like a long and skinny nose or a flute on their face.
Female mosquitoes suck blood, but male mosquitos also get nutrients from flower nectar, so it may be just as likely to find mosquitos in your garden as on your legs.
Mosquitos are most active during the night, so if you see bugs that fit this physical profile and mostly appear in the early morning or around sunset, they may be mosquitoes.
Telltale Mosquito Activity
The two most common hallmarks of mosquito activity are the well-known activities of the females: buzzing and biting. Although other bugs may have similar habits, if you are seeing tiny flying bugs which constantly make a bothersome buzzing sound and you are finding welt-like bites on the skin of you, your family, or your pets, it is most likely a mosquito infestation..
Some flies may look similar to mosquitos, but most small flies typically do not bite humans, so the bites are a fairly reliable method for identifying mosquitoes.
Finally, mosquitoes like to live around and raise their offspring in stagnant water, so if you have pools of water in or around your home that bugs seem to be congregating around, there’s a good chance they are mosquitos.

Types of Mosquitoes and Why They Can Be Harmful
There are hundreds of types of mosquitoes with all sorts of unsettling variations.
But in the US, there are three main types of common mosquitos.
Also common in the US is the Anopheles mosquito. This type was once one of the main carriers of malaria in the US. But although malaria was a pervasive issue in the Americas in the 1900s, it is today very rare in the United States, and Anopheles mosquitoes aren’t quite as scary as they once may have been.
Finally, slightly less common is the Aedes mosquito. Still found frequently in the coastal or sub-coastal parts of the US, the Aedes mosquito is known for its preference for human blood and is willing to venture inside homes to get its sustenance. Unlike other mosquitoes, the Aedes mosquito is active during the day, rather than only coming out in the night or early morning. Even more concerningly, the Aedes mosquito has been known to spread diseases such as Dengue and Yellow Fever, although mostly outside of the modern US.
Although we have come a long way in addressing mosquito-borne illness in the US, there are still serious risks associated with mosquito bites. West Nile Virus is still diagnosed somewhat frequently in the United States, and mosquitos are the main way that the disease gets passed from one human to another. Another risk is the Zika virus, which is not generally widespread in the US but has surfaced in worrying outbreaks in several American states in recent years. These diseases can be dangerous to anyone and are especially threatening to infants, the elderly, and immune-compromised people.
Finally, mosquitoes are extremely annoying, can make living outdoors stressful and uninhabitable, and their bites can be uncomfortably harmful. Scratching, itchy bites can lead to skin dryness and rashes. The buzz of a couple of female mosquitoes can turn your home into a cacophonous symphony. And have you ever tried to enjoy a nice summer evening while being bitten by a tiny beast every two minutes? It simply cannot be done.

How Do I Get Rid of Mosquitos?
An Ounce of Professional Prevention
The old-fashioned way of getting rid of mosquitos is to sit in a lawn chair with a fly swatter and wait for them to land before smacking them against your skin to kill them or apply DEET to your skin and smell like a chemical for the rest of the night. Fortunately, there are more effective and sustainable methods of mosquito control today.
But at TermiGuard, we also don’t automatically go for the maximalist approach. We begin with an exhaustive inspection of your property, learning about the location and tendencies of your mosquito invaders, and lending preventive advice before crafting a personalized plan of attack.
Thorough Control Methods
Our mosquito-control services usually entail controlled but thorough use of mosquito-control products, which we strategically mist, spray or fog on trees, bushes, and other structures which might provide shelter and breeding for mosquito families.
Mosquitos tend to avoid wide-open areas like lawns, so by deploying our mosquito products in the hidden spots in which they like to hide in, we create an inhospitable environment for mosquito families. We avoid power spraying, which applies too much product in the wrong areas, to be effective.
Vigilant Mosquito Defense
Once they have been driven out of the corners that they were living in, our products don’t stop doing their work there. Our anti-mosquito formula of insect growth regulators, larvicides and repellants will interrupt the life cycle and drive bugs away from the treated spots for up to a month after our treatment. And with no sheltered outside areas to hide in for several weeks at a time, your mosquito invaders will be reduced in numbers and forced to find another yard to live in or die off altogether.
Our mosquito control services are designed with an eye towards long-term solutions, but more than just one treatment is needed to rid your home of mosquitos completely. Remember, nature is relentless! Instead, our TermiGuard specialists will come by 7 times a year to treat your yard to keep you on a preemptive schedule. And if you sense that there is an unexpected uptick in mosquito activity during a time that is between our scheduled treatments, we will come back and address it immediately, completely free of charge!

How Can I Keep Mosquitos Away?
Once we have done our initial inspection and treatment of your house and its surrounding areas, there are a couple of ways that you can help yourself get the full value from our services by making your home less hospitable to mosquitoes.
If you take these steps soon after one of our expert technicians has come by and applied our mosquito-control services, you may have a better chance of winning the battle of these blood-sucking enemies.
Get Rid of Standing Water
Mosquitos cannot breed unless they have still, stagnant water to breed and lay their larvae. Getting rid of any standing water around your property can be incredibly helpful in keeping away mosquitos. And we are not just talking above-ground pools here – mosquitos have been known to breed in bodies of still water as small as one cubic inch!
While it may not be possible to get rid of all the standing water around your house and yard, it helps to be diligent. Make sure to regularly clean and fix your gutters if they are clogging, and keep an eye on potted plants, old tires, and outdoor furniture for pools of water that might make appealing mosquito breeding grounds!
If you are a gardener or a landscaper, some other creative strategies can be effective when applied in tandem with our professional pest control services. For one, just mowing your lawn regularly can help create an inhospitable environment. This is because mosquitoes prefer to seek shelter in dark, damp places, and a well-kept lawn with short grass keeps your lawn nice and sunny. This is not only a desirable outcome for you and your neighbors but an unappealing outcome for the mosquitoes – a win-win!
Furthermore, certain plants have been shown to deter mosquitos, specifically citronella grass, also known as lemongrass. Other plants which may be helpful in keeping mosquitoes out of your yard include lavender, catnip, and marigolds.

At TermiGuard, we return to your property throughout the year to apply your customized mosquito-control plan and check for any other conducive conditions.
