What Is the Best Way to Get Rid of Mosquitoes?
What Does Montco Mosquito Control Do?
Mosquito control is typically a combined effort that includes source reduction as well as the use of chemical control products as needed. Because mosquitoes reproduce in water, source reduction identifies and eliminates water sources that are conducive to mosquito reproduction. While source reduction is the more effective long-term approach to mosquito control, the mosquito treatment plan may necessitate the use of chemical products in addition to source reduction.
Inspection by a Professional
The mosquito treatment strategy begins with a complete property assessment by your management specialist to identify the types of mosquitoes that are causing problems. Following the inspection and identification, a mosquito treatment plan will be prepared by our management professional, which will include recommendations and help for both source reduction and the usage of appropriate chemical products.
How did I end up with mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes in the House
Mosquitoes that enter your home through an open door or window normally hide in dark, hidden corners during the day, but emerge at night in quest of a blood meal. Mosquitoes are sometimes found under sinks, in closets, and in laundry rooms.
The Yard Is Infested With Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes breed in standing water, thus properties near ponds, marshes, and depressions where rainfall collects are vulnerable. Although certain mosquito species are active at different times of the day, the majority emerge shortly before nightfall and remain active throughout the night.

Facts about Mosquitos
Male adult mosquitos do not feed on blood, but females do in order to aid in the production of eggs. Adult female mosquitoes, on the other hand, do not feed on blood and instead eat plant nectar and other sugars, just like males.
The proboscis of a female mosquito that extends out from the mouth area is relatively smooth, whereas the adult males' proboscis is bushy.
Mosquitoes: How Seriously They Cause Diseases?
Mosquitoes can spread a variety of diseases to humans, including the Zika virus. Pregnant women are affected by this rare condition, which can result in birth abnormalities. West Nile virus and several types of encephalitis are more widespread in the United States. These mosquito-borne diseases have the potential to cause catastrophic complications. The incidence of illnesses caused by mosquito bites increased, according to a recent CDC statement.
Female mosquitos buzzing and possible bites are signs of mosquito activity. Bite reactions vary greatly, ranging from slight irritation to severe inflammation and swelling. The presence of standing water might also provide an ideal breeding environment for mosquitos. Nymphs can be found in stagnant ponds, pet water bowls, potted plants, bird feeders, and other standing water places.
Symptoms and Adverse Reactions
Most people never detect their first mosquito bites because many mosquito species are such subtle biters. Other species are vicious biters with a mildly unpleasant bite. Mosquito bites cause the following symptoms:
A little red dot in the midst of a puffy, white lump appears a few minutes after the bite.
A firm, reddish bump (or bumps) that appears a day or two after being bitten.
Swelling at the site of the bites
Instead of harsh lumps, there are little blisters.
Dark marks that resemble bruising
Symptoms of mosquito bites in children and persons with immune system abnormalities include:
Swelling and redness across a big region
Hives are a symptom of a low-grade fever.
Lymph nodes swollen
People's bodies react to mosquito bites, even if they aren't painful. It's caused by the saliva of a mosquito's proboscis when it punctures the skin. As a result of these lumps, many people suffer from mild to severe itching. Some people may become less sensitive to mosquito saliva after repeated exposure, while others may develop allergic reactions as a result of repeated exposure.
Aside from itching and swelling, allergies can also cause symptoms similar to asthma. It is also possible for mosquitoes to transmit diseases from one host to another.
Normally, a mosquito bite causes a red, swollen bump that is itchy and bleeds when touched. In people who have had a mild reaction to a mosquito bite, antihistamines can help relieve itching and swelling. Speak with your doctor before beginning any new medication. Some people develop immunity to mosquito saliva over time and show no symptoms after being bitten.
Severe Signs and Symptoms
Mosquito allergies are more common in people who spend a lot of time outside or who already have a weakened or weak immune system.
Symptoms that are more severe include:
Rashes that sting
Swelling that is excessive
A medical expert should be contacted right away if you have a severe allergic reaction to a mosquito bite.
Individuals with known or suspected mosquito allergies should dress in khaki or beige clothing when spending time outside, as mosquitoes are less drawn to these colors. Because certain scents in soaps, shampoos, and creams may attract mosquitoes.
