Mosquitoes are an annoying and problematic pest that homeowners often face during the spring and summer months. Rising temperatures and increased rainfall play a large role in encouraging the growth of the mosquito population. Here in Savannah, our humid coastal environment is particularly conducive to this, allowing mosquitoes to form large populations here.
Mosquitoes are infamous for their role as vectors of some of the deadliest diseases on the planet. In fact, they are considered to be the deadliest creature in the world, and are responsible for bringing suffering to millions of people every year. In addition to human suffering, billions of dollars are spent around the world each year to combat the threat of mosquitoes. Here in the United States, we are fortunate to rarely have to deal with mosquitoes that carry deadly diseases such as malaria and West Nile virus. However, mosquitoes are still a frustrating pest for homeowners to deal with.

How Harmful Are They?
Contrary to popular belief, not all mosquitoes feed on blood. In fact, only the females of certain mosquito species feed on blood which they use to facilitate the production of their eggs. Mosquitoes have a very rapid reproductive rate, and a single female can produce hundreds of eggs in its lifetime. The female will lay these eggs beneath standing water. Once these eggs hatch, the immature mosquito larvae live for a time beneath the water. After completing a pupal stage, they will emerge to the surface of the water as adults, ready to start the cycle over once again.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in almost any amount of water. Eggs laid by mosquitoes have been found in large lakes and ponds as well as bird fountains and even puddles of rainwater. These areas are often the main source of a mosquito infestation on your property, and identifying them is the first step to dealing with mosquitoes.
Our Mosquito Removal Process and What To Expect
Mosquito treatment is a multi-step process, and each step is critical to ensuring that the problem is completely eliminated. Firstly, any treatment should begin with a thorough inspection of the property. This will allow a technician to identify problem areas and any conducive conditions that might be allowing mosquito development. During this time, a technician will often interview the homeowner, finding out which areas of the property the homeowner tends to make use of and therefore the areas that should be focused on in treatment.
Once an inspection has been completed, the next step is to eliminate harborage areas and breeding sites. This is done on a case by case basis, but usually includes tasks such a treating or eliminating any standing water, removing any containers that might collect water, and treating any stumps or holes on the property.
Finally, the technician will apply a state registered mosquito treatment product in and around the target area. This will largely eliminate the adult mosquito population, and since the breeding areas will have already been treated, the mosquitoes will have difficulty establishing a population around the home. Homeowners should be aware that mosquito populations are heavily influenced by their reproductive season and weather conditions. Therefore, it may be necessary in the future to retreat the property if the mosquitoes reappear due to this.
