Say Goodbye, Little Fly: Mosquito Pest Control in Northwest Indiana

Here’s a fun fact: the word mosquito is an amalgamation of the words mosca and diminutive -ito. In Spanish, this translates to the word little fly. But there’s nothing fun about having mosquitos. They are irritating pests and are known vectors of diseases.

One pest you might not think of unless you are outdoors hiking or camping are mosquitoes. However, you might be surprised how much mosquitoes can be attracted to your home, especially after a few days of rain. Stagnant water can be a significant lure for large mosquito populations. This is why hiring a professional is so important. Thankfully, Illiana Wildlife and Pest Control have you covered! And we cater your mosquito pest control needs in Northwest Indiana and locations nearby.

Why Mom Was Right About Mosquito Breeding Sites?

My mom once said mosquitoes, like most pests, look for food, water, and shelter. Examine your lawn where mosquitoes will most likely make their first appearance. Avoid having tall grassy areas as it provides them from being exposed to heat and the sun. Also check underneath shrub beds. Maintaining a lawn is more than just good looks.

Be aware that mosquitoes fly only short distances before they need to stop and rest. Therefore, if you begin noticing them flying around your porch, they aren’t far from their shelters. Water is a big concern as standing water is a natural mosquito breeding site

Be Practical And Hire Professionals

Since we established water as our bane in having mosquitos breed and multiply, let’s observe household practices that help control these pests as well as calling professional help. Here’s our take: 

  1. Check your yard to see if you have any old tires, buckets, plastic covers, birdbaths, fountains, or a swimming pool (even if its a temporary one). 
  2. You might also get a ladder and examine your gutters for wet leaves and debris that can be a shelter them. 
  3. By getting rid of the wet items or by cleaning them frequently will help keep the mosquitoes away but until you hire a professional pest control company, mosquito populations are tough to get rid of completely.

Why Public Mosquito Fogging Is Not Enough?

Mosquito control takes more than just the city fogging with their trucks for large-scale control of mosquitoes. It may get rid of mosquitoes that may inhabit ditches or canals but unfortunately this method does not help reduce the mosquito population that might harbor in your backyard. So, if you are having a swarm of mosquitoes around your home or even commercial business, getting professional mosquito treatments may be the best option to consider.
