Although mosquitos can be found virtually everywhere, they typically like to live near places where there is standing water. They do this because water is needed in order for their eggs to hatch. In many instances, a female mosquito can lay up to 200 eggs at a time. When this occurs, a mosquito infestation may develop.
Once an infestation starts, it can be difficult to come up with an effective mosquito control plan. This is because, even though mosquitos like to live in moist areas, they can adapt to different conditions. Additionally, once an infestation develops, the mosquitos will continue to lay eggs and reproduce.
Why are Mosquito Infestations a Problem?
When a mosquito infestation develops and your best efforts at mosquito control aren’t really working, you may have a hard time enjoying your front or backyard. Additionally, mosquitos can carry and transmit diseases like yellow fever, West Nile virus, and malaria. Even though the mosquitos on your property may not be carrying these diseases, the threat can still exist.
