Stop Mosquitoes In Little Rock Before Breeding Begins
The house mosquito is actually a type of fly with a thin body, thin wings and long legs. The male mosquito does not have mouthparts that pierce and will consume nectar like other insects. While female mosquitoes also feed on nectar, they use their mouthparts to puncture skin and feed on human and animal blood. This blood is used to supplement a female mosquito’s diet with essential proteins and iron which she uses (along with carbohydrates derived from plant nectar) to assist in the development of her eggs.
Mosquitoes are typically a problem if you have standing water existing on your property. They breed on or near standing water and only need a small amount in which to lay eggs. Areas that you are likely to find mosquito activity include bird baths, ornamental ponds, buckets, tires, rain gutters and even children’s kiddie pools.
Mosquito bites can be annoying and result in itching, swelling and redness. While mosquitoes may seem harmless they are known carriers of many serious illnesses and diseases to people including West Nile virus, malaria and dengue fever. Domesticated animals may also be exposed to Canine heartworm by mosquitoes.
