If you have spent time in Pasadena in the summer, you understand how serious the mosquito problem can be in this area. Mosquitoes are some of the most annoying and dangerous pests in the world. These tiny blood-feeding bugs will not only leave itchy bumps on your skin, but they could potentially make you sick. 

At Accutech Pest Management, we have an innovative way to keep you safe from these pesky insects. Here is a look at why teaming with an experienced Pasadena pest control company can be beneficial when trying to control the mosquito population near your home. 

How To Identify A Mosquito

Mosquitoes have a unique look that makes it easy to tell them apart from other flying insects. They have slim and small bodies around ¼ of an inch long. Most of the time, a mosquito's body is a combination of black, white, or tan, but it can also have flecks of iridescent silver, blue, or green as well.

The wings on the mosquito's back are almost as long as its body and are somewhat translucent. The veins on the wings and the mosquito's hind legs are covered in scales but can usually only be seen if you have the mosquito under a magnifying glass. 

While both male and female mosquitoes have two long antennae, the male mosquito's antennae tend to have bushy hair on them. They also have a long and thin mouthpiece called a proboscis, used to suck out nectar from flowers or blood from humans and animals. 

Why Mosquito Population Control Is So Important

This might come as a surprise, but mosquitoes are known to be one of the most dangerous animals in the world. There are several diseases that mosquitoes carry and can spread to people and animals. It is estimated that around 700,000 people die of mosquito-borne diseases every year. Luckily, the most deadly diseases, such as malaria, are not spread by mosquitoes in this area. However, there are still some harmful illnesses that you can catch from mosquitoes in Pasadena, which include:

  • Tularemia
  • Dengue
  • West Nile virus
  • Encephalitis
  • Chikungunya

Not every mosquito that you come across will carry any of these harmful diseases. However, if you start to run a fever or feel ill after receiving a mosquito bite, you should seek medical help as soon as possible. 

Do-It-Yourself Mosquito Control Can Fall Short

Many DIY mosquito control solutions are designed to eliminate adult mosquitoes only. And since mosquitoes are able to lay around 3,000 eggs at one time, you will need more than just getting rid of the adult mosquitoes to help your problem.

If mosquitoes are around your home, the best way to get them out of your yard is to hire a professional pest control specialist. An experienced professional will be able to check and treat mosquito hotspots. They will also be able to determine why mosquitoes are choosing to live on your property and can help you to eliminate any factors that may be attracting mosquitoes to your property.
