Mosquito Control By Super D Pest Control
Your Florida Mosquito Control Experts
Florida is home to many species of insects, but among the most annoying and harmful are our 80 species of mosquito. Mosquitoes feed themselves with plant nectar and water, they only use blood to produce and nourish their eggs. Consequently, only female mosquitoes bite. Mosquito bites may be a nuisance, but they can also cause harmful diseases such as Zika, the West Nile Virus, and dengue fever. Controlling mosquitoes is important for your enjoyment of the outdoors and the health of your family. Contrary to myth, mosquitoes
do not die after biting someone.
Basic Outdoor Mosquito Control
In many cases, basic mosquito control can be handled by the homeowner. Mosquitoes breed in standing water. Common mosquito breeding locations include birdbaths, gutters, unmaintained pools, discarded tires, flower pots, retaining ponds, and anywhere else that still water may be left to stagnate. Mosquito populations can be reduced by eliminating as many of these types of sources of standing water as possible. For example, frequently changing the water in birdbaths, keeping gutter drains clear and dumping water from any objects in which it can accumulate.
Basic Mosquito Control Indoors
For some home owners, mosquito control may be necessary inside the home as well. Home owners want to make sure screens are in good repair and that there are no places indoors where they can breed (plant pots with water gathered in the base are common places for indoor mosquito breeding). While mosquitoes commonly derive their nutrition from plant nectar, a female mosquito can live indoors for up to three weeks from the blood of a single bite if necessary. If mosquitoes become established in the home, vulnerable family members such as the elderly, infants, and young children should be protected with mosquitoes netting around beds and cribs, and those older than infants should be protected with repellent until the indoor mosquitoes are eradicated.

Many species of mosquitoes are most active in the hours just before dusk and after dawn, and exposure to them can be reduced by remaining indoors at those times. Exposure to mosquito bites can also be reduced
through wearing long sleeves and pants and wearing repellent during times when mosquitoes are known to be active.
