WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!

April Showers… Bring More Mosquitoes?

Protect Against Mosquitoes Carrying MalariaWith the weather finally starting to show signs of summer, the weeks of endless rain are right around the corner. Mosquito populations can be greatly affected by storms and larger amounts of precipitation. You may think you’re prepared to fight off mosquitoes after picking up a can of bug spray and maintaining a positive attitude, but a little knowledge on the subject can better prepare you this mosquito season. Our first goal at Mosquito Squad Chicago is to provide you with the knowledge you need to be able to make an informed decision on how best to protect your family from mosquitoes this season.

Mosquitoes need water to be able to thrive; they lay their eggs in it, and spend the first part of their life as water dwelling insect before their wings have fully grown. The more rain, the more puddles, and the more places that mosquitoes can and will lay eggs. Once the rain has really started to hit the Chicagoland area, it is important to deal with any areas in your yard that may have accumulated water such as toys and tarps. It is especially important to keep up on pooling water if you live in close proximity to a pond, creek, or other body of water that remains still. Even puddles can be prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes which tend to stay within a couple hundred yards of their breeding area. Assess any areas in your yard that seem to allow for pooling and consider if filling them in or developing a better drainage system might be plausible. These things can all cut down on the size of the mosquito population around your yard, but the most effective defense is through regular mosquito barrier sprays that not only kill mosquitoes but keep them from coming back to your yard.

You have probably noticed that mosquitoes also prefer warmer weather and are most active within the hour before and after both sunrise and sunset. But, among some of the things you may not know about mosquitoes includes their ability to detect prey through sensing the carbon dioxide we exhale while breathing as well as detecting body heat emanating from us. This is why mosquitoes seem to be especially bad after you’ve been running outside or working in the yard. They can literally sense where you are.Mosquito Control Barrier Sprays
