How To Keep Dangerous Mosquitoes Away From Your Lake Worth Home

Serving Families Throughout Lake Worth

Keeping mosquitoes at bay can be the difference between being able to enjoy your time outdoors and being forced to retreat indoors. The most successful Lake Worth mosquito control services require both controlling these pests when they are on your property and discouraging them from ever coming back.

At Above and Beyond Pest Control, we have proven techniques we use on mosquitoes in the Lake Worth area. We work hard at keeping our customers satisfied because we know how important it is to prevent these dangerous, pesky insects from ruining your time spent outdoors.

Mosquito Or Not? How To Identify Them At A Glance

Mosquitoes are tiny insects, so it can be challenging for people who don’t deal with them regularly to identify them. Some of the characteristics that can help you find mosquitoes include:

  • A length of about 0.15– 0.4 inches
  • A tubular mouth part called a proboscis
  • Two wings
  • Long legs
  • A faint buzzing noise, especially when they are near your head

A female mosquito is looking to bite you so she can consume your blood. Mosquitoes don’t move very fast, so If you happen to swat a mosquito on your arm after it bites you, you may see a blood smear. This is another way to identify these insects.

Two types of mosquitoes in Lake Worth are most common. The Asian tiger mosquito has a white and black striped body and is smaller than the culex mosquito, which primarily has a gray-colored body.

Mosquito Dangers: Itchy Bites, Allergic Reactions And Diseases

Many people call our mosquito control service in Lake Worth because they believe mosquitoes are dangerous insects. This is true, as these insects can carry many kinds of diseases, including:

  • Chikungunya 
  • Dengue 
  • Eastern equine encephalitis
  • Malaria
  • Rift Valley fever 
  • Saint Louis encephalitis
  • West Nile virus
  • Yellow fever 
  • Zika fever

Sometimes people call us to get rid of mosquitoes because they simply don’t like the welts the insects leave behind. Many times, the welt is an allergic reaction. These welts nearly always will be itchy, creating some discomfort for you.

The Key To Mosquito Control: Proactive Measures For Prevention

In addition to the control techniques our team can apply to your property, there are other steps you can take to keep mosquitoes away. 

Removing standing water from around your property is a great starting point. Mosquitoes need standing water to lay eggs, so if you remove the water, mosquitoes will look for another place to lay eggs. Check your gutters, too. Remove any debris to make sure the gutters are not retaining water.

Another proven technique to make your property less interesting for mosquitoes is to trim the lawn and landscaping, especially near areas where you and your family like to spend time outdoors. Mosquitoes are more likely to hide in overgrown plants. Our professionals can give you advice and tips on how to repel mosquitoes as part of our treatment process.
