Why Are There so Many Mosquities in My Yard?
Mosquitoes are annoying pests that usually don’t do any more than pepper the skin with irritating bites. But sometimes, a mosquito bite can be dangerous. These pests are also known to carry deadly diseases like the chikungunya virus. To protect yourself from exposing yourself and your family from these mosquito-borne illnesses, it’s important to be aware of what attracts mosquitoes to your yard.
Standing Water: Still water is the preferred breeding ground for mosquitoes. Even a half an inch of water is enough for mosquitoes to lay their eggs, which typically hatch within eight to ten days.
Carbon Dioxide: Your attractiveness to mosquitoes can actually be impacted by how often you exhale. The release of carbon dioxide help mosquitoes zero-in on their food sources.
Heat: Mosquitos thrive in hot, humid environments and they have a unique ability to hone in on hot spots, which is what attracts them to humans in the first place.
Mosquito Heat Treatment: A Professional Solution to Mosquito Control
Fit Turf’s Mosquito Heat Program is designed to effectively keep mosquitoes away from your yard or outdoor event for up to three weeks. During a quick visit to your home our experts will apply a treatment of our “Mosquito Magic” solution in a fine mist around the borders of your property. This mist is like a barrier that prevents and controls mosquito populations. The barrier discourages mosquitoes from approaching the area and as a result all of the space inside the barrier. Think of it as a giant invisible mosquito net.
