Mosquito Safe provides year-round protection for active and inactive mosquito population. There are over 2,500 different species of mosquitos throughout the world of which 150 species are found in the United States. Seasonal mosquito activity ranges from low in winter to higher levels in the spring and summer, however they will live year-round. We offer year-round protection with the best defense approach to control mosquito growth and population on your property before and during the peak seasons.
Mosquitoes can spend the winter in any life stage but rarely do they live as pupa (teenager) all winter long. Most mosquito species survive as eggs in the soil in a dormant state called diapause. The diapause is a state in which the eggs do not hatch in response to flooding. Instead, they wait for the days to grow long. Mosquitoes also spend winter as larvae living in water beneath trees and soil and swampy areas. Here they avoid freezing temperatures while the cold water slows their development and metabolism. Many species can survive winter in protected places as adult females. The males almost never survive. The adult females that survive over winter are inseminated and live most of the winter as diapause.
- We recommend barrier spray around the perimeter of the property to help control the young dormant female mosquitoes from developing into adults prior to springtime. This preventive technique can greatly reduce the adult population.
- Freestanding water treatments can kill any dormant developing mosquito larvae. Our proven chemical control will provide the protection from breeding and reduce the population of juvenile mosquitoes.
- Frequency cycle of two to three weeks depending on chemical selection and once a month treatment to free standing water.
Spring – Summer – Fall
Spring time is the point of the year where mosquito eggs hatch into larva and begin the development to adulthood. They will utilize water to develop into the different stages and bring them to the final stage of adulthood. Female mosquitoes will require blood from animal or human for reproduction. The male mosquito will feed off of plant juices to survive. At this time of year is the most important time to control mosquito population on your property and that of your neighbors. Most mosquito population lives in heavy brush and low level trees making this the prime location to reproduce and develop. It’s important to reduce the heavy foliage and thin out landscape vegetation to reduce hiding spots of large communities of mosquitoes.
- We recommend barrier spray around the perimeter and close to buildings of the property to help control the female mosquito larvae, pupa and adults prior to later winter into early spring. This preventive technique can greatly reduce the adult population.
- Freestanding water treatments can kill any dormant of developing mosquito larvae. Mosquito Safe’s proven chemical control will provide the protection from breeding and reduce the population of juvenile mosquitoes.
- Landscape trimming and clean up greatly reduces nesting and development areas reducing the mosquito population.
- Defensive planting with natural plant that have botanical chemical properties help repel mosquitoes.
- Frequency cycle of two to three weeks depending on chemical selection, and once a month treatment to free standing water
