Fox Pest Control’s Connecticut Mosquito Control Exterminator Service

Summer comes to Connecticut 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. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Connecticut mosquito problem and reduce them quickly call (203) 660-0988 today.

Signs of a Mosquito Infestation

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 Connecticut. 

Sightings

One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.

Bites

Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

What You Need to Know About Mosquitoes in Connecticut

  • 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

Helpful Mosquito Prevention Tips:

Also covering up in long-sleeved shirts and pants, especially when going outside after dusk.

Using repellent with DEET is also important to avoid bites.

Our Fox Pest Pros can easily visit your home and apply monthly treatments throughout the spring and summer.

This will decrease the likelihood of mosquitoes laying eggs and inhabiting your yard.

Mosquito Control FAQ

Do all mosquitoes bite?

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 around in Connecticut, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.

Where do mosquitoes lay their eggs?

Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.

When is the best time to avoid mosquitoes?

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 call Fox Pest Control in Connecticut to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.)

Why are mosquito bites itchy?

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.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Yes they can be. Even in Connecticut 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.

Why Do Mosquitoes Exist?

Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, 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.
