What Are Mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are a common flying insect found around the world, and Green Cove Springs is no exception. They grow through four stages; egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The first three stages of a mosquito’s life are aquatic, and can range from 5 to 14 days. Unfamiliar to many, the male mosquito feeds on nectar, while only female mosquitoes feed on human and animal blood. Generally, adult female mosquitoes live 1-2 weeks in nature or one month or more in captivity.
Mosquito Bite Dangers
When a mosquito bites you, a welt will appear as an allergic reaction to its saliva that was injected into your skin to prevent your blood from clotting. However, a welt on your skin is one of the minor side effects to being bitten by a mosquito. Mosquitoes are carriers of many infectious diseases, including West Nile Virus and Encephalitis to name just a couple and a responsible for more human deaths than any other living creature. To protect yourself from mosquito bites, McCall's recommends:
Using bug sprays with DEET
Wearing protective clothing such as long sleeve shirts and long pants
Wearing light colored clothing (since mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors)
Plan outdoor events during non-peak mosquito hours; mid day is best
How Can I Get Rid Of Mosquitoes?
Living in Green Cove Springs, it is not always possible to wear protective clothing on hot Florida summer days and evenings, which is why McCall Services has developed a home mosquito control program. These services are specifically designed to target mosquito breeding sites and eradicate them before they hatch. These services include:
Inspection for Mosquito Activity
Targeted Pest Control Treatments
Application of residual insecticides to prevent future infestations
Our Mosquito Remediation Services are repeated through the key mosquito breeding months of May through October. Along with our FL mosquito control, homeowners too can reduce mosquito populations by decreasing standing water; replacing water often in kiddie pools and bird baths, removing standing water from buckets, kid’s toys, clogged gutters, and fire pits. Don’t let mosquitoes keep you from enjoying the outdoors, contact McCall Services to schedule an inspection today!
