Summer comes to Albany each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood.
Not only do mosquito bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. While a spider or a cockroach may be a scarier sight, because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals.
Through Malaria, Zika, and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year.

You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Albany.
One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.

No bugs. Simply better.
Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes. So, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control in Albany.
Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water. Did you know that mosquitoes can even lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water?
Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds. (Or you could contact Fox Pest Control in Albany to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.) Mosquito treatment for yards in Albany can help you enjoy your outdoor space rather than planning around what time of year mosquitoes are the worst.
When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans. Using mosquito repellents for your yard in Albany can mitigate the impact of these pesky insects. Thankfully, Fox provides backyard mosquito control in Albany, NY.

Yes they can be. Even in Albany mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
West Nile virus – an infectious disease whose symptoms include fever, skin rash, body aches, and swollen lymph glands.
Zika virus – an RNA virus that causes a rash, itching all over, muscle pain, red eyes, joint pain, fever, and a headache.
Malaria – a disease caused by a parasite that invades red blood cells and brings on fever, chills, sweating, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, and sometimes jaundice.
Mosquitoes are primarily prey insects, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower. One of our key methods of killing mosquitos involves spraying your yard for them. This strategy not only eliminates existing mosquitoes but also deters new ones from making your yard their home.
