Why Do They Enter Your Property?

Mosquitoes breed on or near still water, and since stagnant water is available easily in homes and commercial spaces, they are found on almost every property. Female mosquitoes need a thin film of water to lay their eggs on, and this can be easily found in bird feeders, pet bowls, watering cans, etc. Moreover, mosquitoes can travel for about 20 miles to look for a blood meal, so even if there is no stagnant water available, they can enter your property to suck on your blood.

While mosquito bites cause temporary discomfort, they may become a source of disease transmission from one person to the other. Some of the common diseases mosquitoes may spread Dengue, Malaria, West Nile Virus and Yellow Fever.

To maintain hygiene and give your loved ones a healthy environment to live in, it is best to hire the best mosquito control company to carry out the necessary steps.
