Mosquitoes are small flying insects that can be most active during summer. They feed on the blood of humans, animals, and birds and are most active during the twilight hours. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water and can spread dangerous diseases like malaria and the West Nile virus.
That is why it is important to get professional help with mosquito control. Fox Pest Control offers mosquito control services that will fit your needs.
Our team of experts will assess the size of your property, inspect for breeding grounds and areas where mosquitoes are likely to live, and create a customized plan to reduce the mosquito population around your home.
Mosquito infestations are a nuisance because they can steal the joy from outdoor activities. So, it is essential to be aware of various signs of mosquito infestation in your home or yard, including:
Visits to the McLean County Museum of History, David Davis Mansion, and Miller Parks Zoo are among the city's gems that can attract many visitors. Due to the city's wet and humid climate, it can also attract some unwanted visitors, like mosquitoes, especially during the summer months.
Mosquitoes can thrive in various conditions, such as standing water and humid climates.
Other factors, like low-lying areas that are dark or damp and surrounded by plants, can also be favorable for mosquito breeding. Food sources like fruit and outdoor trash cans also attract mosquitoes.
If you have a mosquito infestation at your home, the professionals at Fox Pest Control can help. Our team will create a personalized mosquito treatment plan that works for you.

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 Bloomington.
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 Bloomington to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.) Mosquito treatment for yards in Bloomington 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 Bloomington can mitigate the impact of these pesky insects. Thankfully, Fox provides backyard mosquito control in Bloomington, IL.

Yes they can be. Even in Bloomington 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.
