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

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 around in Lexington, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.
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.
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 Lexington to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.)
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.
Yes they can be. Even in Lexington 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 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.
I’ve always had great experiences with Fox Pest Control! They’re always on time, informative, and pleasant to deal with. That’s above and beyond these days!! I’ll continue to use and recommend them to anyone I know.
I highly recommend Fox Pest Control. We had a severe flea problem last summer. I noticed results immediately after their service. We haven't seen a flean since their first initial visit. Jerry Leathers was SUPER attentive to every issue we had and also provided a solution. Very polite gentlemen and very thorough. They even gave me advice on how to fix other issues that they couldn't. Top notch service from top notch technicians!
