Mosquitos Houton, Texas
Mosquitos are best known for their itchy bites and the diseases they carry. There are many ways we can minimize the amount of activity around our homes. Mosquitos are strong fliers and can travel a good distance if necessary. Most flight ranges between 1-3 miles. Some mosquito species have been known to travel up to 7 miles from their breeding spot.
The shelf life of an adult female is about 2-3 weeks, this will vary from one species to the next. One way to begin eliminating activity around your home, is to eliminate their potential breeding areas. Heavy foliage, shrubs and plants are probable breeding areas and will need regular maintenence. Mosquitos not only breed in these areas, but also feed on necter and plant juices.
Anything that can hold water can be an area of concern. Mosquitos are active at dawn and dusk. The female flies into the male swarms to mate. The eggs are then laid on moist soil or accumulated water. The larvae (wigglers) live in water 6 to 14 days depending on the tempurature.
Carbon Dioxide(exhale) is one of the bigger attractants. Mosquitos will react from a distance up to 40 yards and move closer to the source. This makes outdoor activities a challenge and safety measures should be put in place. There are many products you can buy off the shelf. These products do work but can't keep up with an established population.
