What attracts mosquitoes?

When dealing with mosquitoes, it’s helpful to understand their breeding patterns.

Mosquitoes mate once, yet the female can lay eggs up to five times after. Typically, she will find a nest in puddles of water, damp areas such as marshes, or even your gutters.

Once they hatch, they’re going to be hungry. Mosquitoes are able to detect carbon dioxide from our breath, our body heat, and the lactic acid our pores secrete.e

Do mosquitoes carry diseases?

Unfortunately, yes. Mosquitoes carry diseases including malaria, dengue fever, West Nile, Zika virus, and even encephalitis. Although some of these disease are not necessarily present in Virginia, it is still critically important to minimize the presence of mosquitoes around your home.

Furthermore, many of us have extremely sensitive skin. A single mosquito bite, even if you don’t scratch it, can welt up and cause significant suffering for the mosquito’s victim.

How to prevent Mosquitoes entering your yard.

The key to prevent infestations is mosquito control. To control the spread of mosquitoes, we need to avoid creating mosquito breeding habitats.

One step in mosquito prevention is to keep your grass mowed. The taller your grass, the more bugs it will attract — including mosquitoes.

Besides fixing physical lowlands, other ways you can proactively keep mosquitoes at bay are to:

  • clean out your birdbaths,
  • treat and protect your ponds,
  • clean out your gutters so water flows freely, and
  • drain standing water in any buckets.
  • Finally, if your outside water spigot leaks or drips, get it repaired or replaced ASAP. It might seem inconsequential, but this will keep the ground below it very damp and invite females to make their nests.
