What You Need to Know About Mosquitoes
With more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes worldwide, these blood-sucking pests trigger a similar aversion in humans and animals alike.
The only creatures that truly seem to enjoy mosquitoes are their natural predators: birds, bats, dragonflies, and frogs.
Mosquitoes vary in shape and size, but the most common species in the United States are about 0.04-0.16″. This minuscule size allows them to easily slip through the smallest of rips or tears in weather stripping and window screens. The largest mosquitoes can grow to just over an inch in length!
Regardless of their size, all mosquitoes have a three-segmented body consisting of a head, thorax, and abdomen
The body part that causes the most trouble for us humans is the female mosquito’s proboscis (a.k.a. the insect’s mouthpart). The proboscis includes dual tubes that female mosquito uses to plunge into the skin and feed. One of the tubes releases an enzyme that stops the blood from clotting, while the other allows the mosquito to feed. Most female mosquitoes bite because they need a blood meal in order to reproduce and lay fertile eggs.
For food, both male and female mosquitoes consume nectar or other plant sugars. That’s why we focus our mosquito treatments on plant foliage areas (where these insects feed and shelter). We use a combination of products to eliminate mosquitoes on contact as well as prevent their reproduction.
