Mosquito Control Upstate, NY

Mosquitoes can reach adulthood within only 5-14 days, and all they need is a shallow pool of water to breed. Items such as discarded tires, buckets, and birdbaths are perfect breeding grounds for them.

On average, females lay up to 300 eggs across a maximum of three times throughout their lifespan. Female mosquitoes typically live up to 2 months while male mosquitoes may only survive for 10 days or less.

Female mosquitoes must obtain protein from blood in order to lay eggs - that is why they bite people, while males do not. Most mosquitoes are incapable of flying long distances (up to a maximum of 1-3 miles) or at high speeds (1-1½ mph). For this reason, most female mosquitos will remain within several hundred feet away from their breeding grounds and hatching locations. To protect yourself against these pesky insects, it's essential to take measures such as mosquito control which eliminates any potential breeding sites in the vicinity of your home.

With an astute sense of smell, mosquitoes can detect a potential host from up to 100 feet away. Whether it's the carbon dioxide we exhale, lactic acid and octanol in our breath or sweat, or even the heat that radiates off us - these tiny pests are drawn like magnets to humans!

To effectively control mosquitoes, we employ a three-step process

First, we empty any standing water in the area and spread larvicide on large bodies of water to prevent mosquito breeding and larvae survival. Additionally, during the heat of the day when most mosquitoes are resting, we spray liquid insecticides around low shrubbery and grassy areas where they might seek refuge. Lastly, our team applies treatment to plant leaves – where these pesky insects feed from - for optimal outcomes.

Our three-step mosquito control process is designed to offer unparalleled protection around your home for a substantial duration of time. By targeting adult mosquitoes in their resting and feeding areas and larvae at their places of residence, our approach eliminates the need for a mosquito to roam more than a few hundred feet or detect humans from up to one hundred feet away – making it extremely effective within residential spaces.

Did you know that the global population of mosquitoes eclipses 2,700 species? Meanwhile, just 13 genera occupy the United States. The majority of these belong to three distinct groups:

Aedes mosquitoes: Often referred to as “floodwater” mosquitoes due to their reliance on flooding for eggs hatching, are recognizable by their pointed abdomens. These pesky creatures include such species as the yellow-fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) and the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus). With an impressive flying range of up to 75 miles/121 km away from breeding sites, they can be found almost anywhere! You're most likely to experience their persistent bites in the early morning or evening hours--with each sting being quite painful.

Anopheles mosquitoes: Well-known for their preference to breed in freshwater bodies. Moreover, they can be identified by the pointed tips of their abdomens. Perhaps most notably, particular types such as Anopheles quadrimaculatus commonly transmit malaria between humans and other mammals.

Culex mosquitoes: Easily identifiable with their blunt-tipped abdomens, and they typically breed in standing water. The northern house mosquito (Culex pipiens) is an example of a species of this type. They fly weakly and have short lifespans during the summer months; however, they are relentless biters, usually targeting birds over humans at dawn or after dusk - and when they do bite people it can be quite painful! Unfortunately for us humans, these pests may become even more frequent as we encroach upon their habitats. For instance, the cattail mosquito (Coquilettidia perturbans) has been increasingly seen due to human activities.
