Mosquitoes are a tiny flying insect best known for their diet of human blood and the fact that they leave sometimes painful itchy bumps on the people they bite.
But did you know that despite their size mosquitoes are considered one of the deadliest creatures on the planet thanks to their notorious habit of carrying and transmitting diseases.
Mosquitoes are all over the world and there are approximately 3,000 known species.
They first start to emerge during the early spring months when things start to warm up and will continue through to the fall. However, in some areas where it remains warm year-round, like in Arizona, there can be mosquitoes all the time.
Mosquitoes can be found year around in Arizona, but are particularly active from March through October.
Mosquitoes favorite time, when you are most likely to get bite, is during the early dawn and dusk hours. This is when mosquito control methods prove to be most effective. Arizona is home to several types of mosquitoes, including daytime and nighttime feeders.
In addition to the itchy bite one receives, mosquitoes can be a particular public health concern because some types of mosquitoes found in Arizona can carry and transmit diseases, such as West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis and, potentially, Zika Virus. These know viruses can cause major illnesses and health issues in humans.
By removing standing water around your home, treating water features like ponds and fountains with a larvacide, and proactively treating for mosquitoes around your home and yard can help minimize the threat of these diseases.
Please stay tuned for more details about our upcoming mosquito control program.
