Mosquito full of blood

Of all the pest insects you may encounter in your San Antonio yard, mosquitoes can be the worst. Mosquitoes are always on the hunt for blood, and if you are in your yard when they are active, they will pursue relentlessly in search of what they want. Mosquitoes can be difficult to control due to their habits and behaviors, and mosquito control methods can prove ineffective. Mosquito infestations can persist, and your frustration can grow.

If you want to know how to get rid of mosquitoes, it is as simple as contacting Accurate Pest Control. Our seasoned professionals not only get rid of mosquitoes, but they also keep them from coming back. Call us today. We know all about pest control in San Antonio.

About The Breeding Habits Of Mosquitoes

It takes knowledge and skill with mosquito habits and behaviors in order to deal with infestations effectively. Mosquitoes in San Antonio have four distinct life cycles:

  • Egg: mosquitoes need water to reproduce and will lay their eggs close to or in water.
  • Larva: Once the eggs hatch, the larvae spend their time in the water as they feed and grow.
  • Pupa: The larvae eventually turn into pupae and remain in the water, though they stop feeding.
  • Adult: Eventually, pupae develop into adults. As soon as mosquitoes reach adulthood, they immediately leave the water and can also immediately begin to feed.

The best way to get rid of mosquitoes outside your San Antonio home is to get in touch with Accurate Pest Control. We can help you get rid of mosquitoes quickly.

Mosquito Bites Can Be More Than Just Annoying

Mosquitoes need blood to reproduce and are always on the hunt for it. If you are in your yard when mosquitoes are active, they will pursue you constantly to get it. Mosquitoes use a needle-like appendage to pierce your skin and siphon blood. As they feed, they inject saliva to keep the blood from thickening. Unfortunately, if a mosquito feeds on a host infected with a dangerous pathogen, it can affect every other host it feeds on after that, injecting the pathogen as it injects its saliva. Mosquitoes are associated with West Nile virus, dengue, chikungunya, encephalitis, and tularemia.

Mosquitoes can potentially introduce you and your family to dangerous pathogens. The best way to keep mosquitoes away is to rely on professional help. Accurate Pest Control stands ready to assist you with your mosquito control needs. Get in touch with us today to see how we can help you.
