How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes in Your Yard

While you can help control mosquitoes on your property, it is nearly impossible to eliminate them completely. The best way to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home is to attack the problem on multiple fronts. At Adams Exterminating Company, we offer a variety of services to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.

Our mosquito control services include:

  • Mosquito misting
  • Mosquito traps

Our experienced technicians have the training and equipment to identify and eliminate mosquito breeding sites around your property. We can also help you reduce the number of mosquitoes living in your yard by treating your shrubs, trees, and other areas where mosquitoes are likely to rest.

How to Prevent Mosquitoes

While mosquitoes are difficult to eliminate, there are a few things you can do to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home. The best way to prevent mosquitoes is to eliminate their breeding sites. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so removing any standing water around your property is important. You should also make sure your gutters are clean and that water is not pooling in your yard.

To help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home, you should also:

  • Keep your lawn trimmed and your shrubs pruned
  • Trim back any branches or shrubs that are touching your house
  • Make sure your windows and doors have screens
  • Use mosquito repellents when you are outside, especially during peak mosquito activity times, like dawn and dusk

While these tips can help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home, they are not foolproof. If you are having a problem with mosquitoes, contact Adams Exterminating Company for professional mosquito control in Lewisville.

FAQs About Mosquitoes

Are Mosquitoes Dangerous?

Yes, mosquitoes are dangerous. While most mosquito bites are just itchy and annoying, mosquitoes can also transmit a variety of diseases, including the West Nile virus, the Zika virus, and the chikungunya virus. Mosquitoes can also transmit heartworms to dogs and cats.

How Long Do Mosquitoes Live?

The lifespan of a mosquito depends on the species and the environment. In general, male mosquitoes live for about a week, while female mosquitoes live for a few weeks to a few months. However, some species of mosquitoes can live for as long as six months.

How Many Eggs Do Mosquitoes Lay?

The number of eggs a mosquito lays depends on the species. In general, a female mosquito lays about 100 eggs at a time. However, some species of mosquitoes can lay up to 500 eggs at a time. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so if you have standing water around your property, you could have a lot of mosquitoes.

How Long Does It Take for a Mosquito to Develop?

The amount of time it takes for a mosquito to develop from an egg to an adult depends on the species and the environment. In general, it takes about 10 to 14 days for a mosquito to develop. However, under the right conditions, a mosquito can develop from an egg to an adult in as little as four days.

What Do Mosquitoes Eat?

While both male and female mosquitoes feed on nectar and plant juices, only female mosquitoes bite. Female mosquitoes need a blood meal to produce eggs. Male mosquitoes do not bite.

Our FAQ

  • Do you offer pest control to businesses?
    Yes, we offer both residential and commercial pest control. We will work with the needs of your business to ensure that pests are not a problem. Furthermore, we understand the State of Texas’s Health and Safety Codes when it comes to pesticide use and pest control.
  • Is your treatment safe around pets?
    Our general treatments are safe around dogs and cats – provided they do not intentionally contact or consume applied materials before they have dried. Certain pets, especially aquatic life and reptiles, are especially vulnerable to some pesticides so it is important to be especially careful while treating when these types of pets are present. We recommend these types of pets, in addition to birds, guinea pigs, and other small animals, be kept away from the treatment area until it is safe for them to return.
  • I have a baby/toddler… is it safe to have treatment?
    While the products we use are toxic to insects, they pose almost no serious risk to people when used properly. However, it is always advisable to be careful when using chemicals around small children, including pesticides. If you have a small child, we recommend staying away from the treatment area while the service is being performed and then wait until the product has dried.
  • Do you offer termite control?

    Yes, both our Home Guardian and Home Guardian Plus plans offer termite control using the proven Sentricon® System with Always Active™ along with a termite service warranty.
