Mosquitoes are among some of the most bothersome and dangerous insects in the world. They are a member of the fly family and are often commonly mistaken for them. They can be a terrible nuisance in any normal household and they can just as easily become deadly threats if left unchecked. They feed on human blood and their bites often leave swollen itchy spots on the skin. In the worst case scenarios, biting mosquitoes can transmit diseases such as Malaria, the West Nile Virus and even Encephalitis. It is therefore paramount to have proper mosquito control systems in place to keep your household protected.
The mosquitoes that favor human blood tend to be the female species. This is because they need this blood in order to nourish their eggs. Mosquitoes enjoy warm and humid weather, and it is often very common for the females to lay these eggs in stagnant water or moist soil. They thrive in this kind of environment, and understanding this is the key to setting up mosquito control systems so that you can eradicate them from your home.
One way to keep them from swarming your home is getting rid of pools of stagnant water around your house, since these are preferred breeding grounds for them.

There are 80 known mosquito species in the State of Florida. Of those, 33 can cause problems to man and domestic animals. 13 of those can carry pathogens that cause diseases.
The University of Florida Bureau of Economic and Business Research did a study from which they estimated that between 1900 to 2000 the Florida mosquito population has increased by about 3,000%. IPM (Integrated Pest Management) is the current method used for mosquito control. This method allows pest control operators to be effective and environmentally sound. IPM is the use of a combination of techniques including source reduction, chemical control, and biological control.
There are three types of classes for mosquito control: nuisance benefits, economic benefits, and public health benefits. Nuisance benefits refers to the activity in parks, yards and general public areas. Economic is more on the end of real estate and land values. Public health of course refers to diseases carried by mosquitoes. Being mindful of mosquito activity and putting into place resistance methods is a good way to help out employee effectively as well. Especially if they work outside in fields such as farming. Also consider if your city has a large tourism trade, keeping mosquitoes in line will help encourage positive word of mouth and return trips. A popular method of control is the use of IGR products. IGR stand for Insect Growth Regulator. This interferes with early development which usually leads to larvae or pupal not surviving. You may be tempted to use a little something called a “bug zapper” to ward off mosquitoes. This actually doesn’t work quite as well as we all think. It could actually attract more mosquitoes to the area. It could also kill beneficial insects instead of biting mosquitoes.
Sometimes a little yard maintenance can help substantially in controlling these pests. Mosquitoes can be attracted to standing water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in moisture. They can also harbor in bushes and other shrubbery. Do you have any in your yard? It will be helpful to drain those areas so as to not attract more.
Here are some places to look for standing water:
Any open containers
It only takes a few days for an egg to hatch, from there an adult mosquito can live for several weeks. Sometimes trimming them up a little will help control the Mosquito population. If they are getting inside the home, consider installing mesh screens and other preventative measures on windows and other inside openings.
