The Best Way To Keep The Mosquitoes Away From Your Mooresville Yard

Mosquitoes are one of the most irritating pests that Mooresville residents can face. Mosquitoes need blood to reproduce and are constantly on the hunt for it. If you are outside when they are feeding, mosquitoes will pursue you constantly, trying to get it. Mosquitoes find hosts using a sophisticated sense of smell, making it nearly impossible to get away from them. Even if you move to the other side of your yard, mosquitoes can follow you using their sense of smell and continue biting. Mosquito bites not only cause swelling and itching but can also potentially expose you to dangerous pathogens.

If you need pest control in Mooresville, call Lake Norman Home Services. We know the best way to get rid of mosquitoes outside, and we can help you get rid of yours. 

Mosquitoes Are Pollinators

Although mosquitoes are legendary for their bite ability, they only need blood to reproduce. Their normal food sources are flowers. Only female mosquitoes will bite you for blood; male mosquitoes never bite and get all the nutrition they need from flowers. As mosquitoes go from flower to flower feeding on nectar, they perform the same pollination functions that bees do. So although mosquitoes are associated with negative things, they also serve important functions in nature. Mosquitoes in your yard, however, can bring you considerable grief, and you may find yourself needing to know how to get rid of mosquitoes.

The Many Diseases Mosquitoes Are Known to Spread

Mosquito bites are bad enough by themselves, but mosquitoes are also associated with another bad thing; their ability to spread diseases. Mosquitoes feed using a needle-like appendage to pierce the skin and draw blood. To keep the blood from thickening as they feed, mosquitoes inject their saliva into the bite area. Unfortunately, if mosquitoes bite a host infected with a transmissible pathogen, they can later transmit that to every host they bite afterward. When they inject their saliva, they inject the pathogen at the same time. This is why mosquitoes are considered the most deadly insect on earth for humans. Mosquitoes are associated with the spread of diseases like the West Nile virus, dengue, chikungunya, encephalitis, and tularemia.

How to Naturally Remove Factors That Attract Mosquitoes to Your Yard

Given that mosquito infestations can introduce many problems, it's good to know how to discourage them from coming in the first place. Here are some things you can do to decrease the chances that mosquitoes come to visit:

  1. Eliminate water: Mosquitoes need water to breed, and removing standing water sources outside your home can help discourage mosquitoes from breeding.
  2. Tightly seal garbage: Exposed garbage can draw rodents, and mosquitoes will come to feed on them. Sealing garbage well discourages both rodents and mosquitoes.
  3. Bushes and grass: Mosquitoes prefer to shelter in overgrown bushes and grass. Keeping these trimmed can help discourage mosquitoes.

These tips can help decrease the chances of mosquitoes visiting, but they can't prevent them. If you need help getting rid of mosquitoes, Lake Norman Home Services can help. Get in touch with us today to see what we can do for you.
