What are mosquitoes?

Biting insects that are relentless in their pursuit of blood meals, mosquitoes are a pest that knows how to annoy people and stop us from being able to enjoy our Bay Area outdoor spaces. Though mosquitoes are weak flyers, they still can find us, bite us, and feed on our blood.

Mosquitoes are true flies and have two wings covered in scales. Their narrow shaped body and legs that hang below them while in flight are easy for most people to identify. Male and female mosquitoes use their extended mouthpart (proboscis) to feed on liquids like plant nectar. Females use the same mouthpart to consume blood meals to complete their reproductive cycle.

  • How can I prevent mosquitoes in the future?

    To prevent problems with mosquitoes on your property or in your home, follow our top prevention tips listed below!

    • Remove any stagnant water from your property. Keep gutters clear, turn buckets upside down when not in use, don’t overwater gardens, and fill in low lying areas that collect rainwater.
    • Empty and re-fill pet water bowls, bird baths, and wading pools regularly.
    • If you own a pool, make sure that water is treated and continuously circulating.
    • When spending time outside, use a mosquito repellent and try to wear light-colored clothing, mosquitoes are attracted to darker colors.
    • Don’t overplant flowering vegetation near your home’s exterior.
    • Keep mosquitoes out of your house by using window and door screens and making sure they are completely intact.

  • Where will I find mosquitoes?
    Typically, mosquitoes gather around containers, natural or man-made, that collect water. In our yards, things like tree stumps, tree hollows, piles of debris, flower pots, buckets, wading pools, bird baths, and your pet’s water bowls attract breeding mosquitoes. Outdoor spaces where you may come into contact with large numbers of mosquitoes include yards, densely wooded areas, athletic fields, large gardens, and areas around lakes and ponds.
  • Why do I have a mosquito problem?

    Mosquitoes breed quickly and can become a problem on any property that offers them a place to breed and feed. During the summer, people experience the most problems with these pests as they are most active in temperatures above 80 degrees.

    Properties with or near standing water are the most susceptible to mosquitoes. They also love properties with a lot of flowering or dense vegetation for them to feed on and rest in during the heat of the day.

  • Are mosquitoes dangerous?

    One of the most dangerous insects in the world is the mosquito, despite their small size and fragile nature. They are dangerous because of their aggressive biting habits and ability to spread serious and potentially life-threatening diseases and parasites to people and animals.

    Mosquitoes bite their victims to feed, and these bites are painful and leave behind raised red itchy welts. Itching at the bite sites may lead to secondary infections; this is especially true in young children.
