Why Do Mosquitoes Bite in the First Place?

Why Do Mosquitoes Bite in the First Place?

Female mosquitoes use the protein found in the blood they ingest to nourish and develop their eggs. A variety of genetic and other factors attract mosquitoes to specific people in Columbus:

  • Blood type: These pests are attracted to blood, especially type O.
  • Breathe: Using their antennae, mosquitoes are able to detect the scent of the carbon dioxide that we produce when we exhale.
  • Movement and heat: Mosquitoes are also attracted to your movement and body heat.
  • Sweat and smell: These pests are attracted to your sweat and certain odors, as well as the lactic acid that’s released when you sweat.
  • Skin: Mosquitoes are attracted to certain bacteria that forms on the skin.
  • Clothing: Wearing dark clothing makes it easier for mosquitoes to find you.
  • Women & Pregnancy: Pregnant women typically produce greater amounts of carbon dioxide when they exhale, making them especially appealing to these pests. Mosquitoes are also more attracted to females because of their hormones.

These pests are also attracted to areas in Columbus with standing water, which forms an ideal breeding ground. A mosquito can lay about 100 to 300 eggs at a time, which then hatch within 48 hours. With the number of mosquitoes able to quickly multiply, it’s extremely important to have mosquito control and management services performed and to prevent stagnant water that often forms in Columbus yards.

Below, learn more about our budget friendly mosquito management program and the treatment services we provide in the Columbus area, plus the steps you can take to make your Columbus yard less attractive to these pests.

Mosquitoes Cause Problems

In addition to causing itchy bites, mosquitoes are a public health risk to your family and pets in Columbus.

Diseases That Mosquitoes Carry

Diseases That Mosquitoes Carry

Mosquitoes aren’t just a public nuisance; they’ve been known to transmit infectious diseases like the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Encephalitis and Malaria. Only a few of the 59 species of mosquitoes in Ohio can transmit disease, so the probability of getting sick from a mosquito bite is low in Columbus, Ohio. However, the diseases that these mosquitoes do carry are very serious and reducing the risk to your health is never a bad idea. Champion’s budget friendly pest management program and extermination services include spraying for these flying pests.

Keep Your Pets Safe

Keep Your Pets Safe

Mosquitoes also pose a significant health risk for your dogs. Mosquitoes that are infected with heartworm larvae can give dogs heartworm disease.

How to Make the Most of Your Treatment

After Champion Pest & Termite Control treats your Columbus property, help keep mosquitoes at bay by following each step of these pest management recommendations.

Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, so they’re most common in wet areas. Sandboxes, swimming pools, and puddles are all perfect breeding grounds thanks to the stagnant water that often forms in these items.

To get the most out of your mosquito management treatment from Champion, reduce the amount of standing water that forms around your Columbus home. Try each mosquito control step below to eliminate mosquito breeding sites around your home in Columbus:

  • Step 1: Empty or remove water-holding containers, such as buckets, unused flower pots, and birdbaths. Water in birdbaths should be dumped every 3 to 4 days.
  • Step 2: Make sure all roof gutters are clean and the water is draining properly.
  • Step 3: Keep child swimming pools empty and on their sides when not being used. If you instead cover the pool with a tarp, be sure it is angled in a way that allows water to run off rather than gather.
  • Step 4: If water is gathering due to structural damage, try to have the damage repaired as soon as possible.

Bug Sprays Can Only Do So Much

Overt the counter bug sprays may be easy on your budget, but they’re not the most effective products for keeping mosquitoes away. Plus, they smell awful, and you have to keep re-applying them throughout the day. Bug sprays aren’t safe for pets’ health, either. Similarly, lighting a fire using pinion wood or burning a citronella candle are only somewhat effective. Step away from the bug spray and call Champion Pest & Termite Control to get rid of flying pests around your Columbus home. Our pest management program is effective in eliminating and preventing unwanted bugs, and helps protect your health and the health of your pet.

Mosquito Control FAQs

Why Should Mosquitoes Be Eradicated?

Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying, they pose health threats to the general public as well as pets in Columbus. They can carry and spread a number of diseases to humans, including West Nile virus, Zika virus, malaria, yellow fever and more. A mosquito infected with heartworm larvae can also give a dog heartworm disease. Make health a priority – commission pest management services for your Columbus home today.

How Do You Stop A Mosquito Infestation?

Mosquitoes breed quickly in Columbus, especially where there’s stagnant water. The most effective way to stop an infestation is to hire a professional mosquito control and management service. If standing water forms in your yard, clear it out and be sure to dump stagnant water from bird baths, buckets, kiddie pools and more. Smoke from fire may also help keep mosquitoes away. If you have a fire pit, burn pinion wood or herbs, which forms a natural mosquito repellant. Better yet, contact Champion for our budget friendly pest management program in Columbus.

Can Exterminators Get Rid of Mosquitoes?

The best way to get rid of mosquitoes in your Columbus yard is to call professional pest management services. Champion treats for these pests by spraying an odorless mist that repels bugs and forms a barrier in your yard for lasting protection. With that being said, mosquitoes can fly 1 to 3 miles so it is possible for more mosquitoes to fly in from the neighbors yard. Contact us to learn more about our pest management program and budget friendly extermination services in Columbus.

How Much Doe Mosquito Extermination Cost?

As with all of our pest management services in Columbus, the cost of mosquito extermination will depend on the severity of your infestation and the size of the area needing treatment. If you’d like to provide your Columbus home with seasonal protection from bugs, we can build a customized program to fit your budget and needs.
