Help! The Mosquitoes In The Bay Area Are Taking Over My Outdoor Space

Mosquito biting someone's skin.

Mosquitoes can be a problem all over the world. In some parts of the world, they serve as disease vectors, and mosquitos account for over a million deaths per year. Beyond that, mosquitoes are relentless in their search for blood. If they find you out trying to enjoy your backyard they will stay after you until you either go inside or find some way to deal with them outdoors. Mosquitoes can make it nearly impossible for you to enjoy being outside in your yard, especially when the sun starts to go down and mosquitoes come out to feed.

Why Mosquitoes Bite Some More Than Others

Simply put, some people smell better to mosquitoes than other people. Mosquitoes are attracted to individuals who have more substances like uric acid in their skin. If people are standing together outside in a group and one person has skin containing more of these acids, mosquitoes will automatically pursue that particular individual more than the others. Where the mosquitoes may leave some of the other individuals relatively unscathed, they will pursue that one person relentlessly. To make matters worse, the person can’t get away from the mosquitoes as long as they are outside because, regardless of where they go in the yard, the mosquitoes can still smell them and will still follow them. 

Mosquitoes will bite you because they like you, but you won’t like them. If you need mosquito control in the Bay Area, Bay Pest Control Inc stands ready to help. Our safe, effective, and proven mosquito treatments have a history of success. Contact us for help with mosquitoes

About The Dangerous Diseases Mosquitoes Can Spread

Mosquitoes feed by inserting a needle-like appendage into the skin so they can siphon blood off through the tiny blood vessels. To keep the blood from thickening too quickly, mosquitoes also inject their saliva into the skin. The saliva contains substances that prevent the blood from thickening, allowing the mosquitoes to drink all they want without worrying about the blood growing too thick. This saliva is why mosquito bites itch — the body reacts negatively to the saliva. 

This saliva injection is also the reason that mosquitoes are known to spread diseases. If they feed on an infected host, they can carry the disease-causing pathogen inside themselves. Then, when they feed on the next host, they can inject these pathogens as they feed. Mosquitoes can transmit pathogens to everything that they feed on.

Controlling Mosquitoes At All Their Life Stages

Mosquitoes go through several different life stages as they mature. Mosquitoes initially lay their eggs in or near water after feeding on blood. Mosquito eggs can survive for up to two months without water, but need water to hatch. After the eggs hatch, the mosquitoes enter the larval stage. They feed while in the water to gather their strength. The larva stage passes into the pupal stage. The mosquito pupae do not feed during this period. Following this, mosquitoes move into the adult stage and leave the water. They are ready to feed as soon as they enter the adult stage, and the cycle starts all over again. The progression through these stages can take up to a month, but given the right circumstances can take under a week.
