When are they most active?

There are certain times of the year when the mosquito population and activity levels increase. They are during the summer months when it is warm and more humid which is typically from June thru September and then again during the rainy season which is from May to October. They thrive in temperatures of over eighty 80 degrees in Fahrenheit and high humidity making the summer months, the peak mosquito season in Florida. The rainy seasons, provide the perfect breeding ground for them to thrive. However, they can still be present and active during the cooler months of the year, so it’s important to take the necessary precautions all year round, not just during the peak seasons. These tiny insects are not only irritating but they can also transmit dangerous diseases such as the Zika Virus, the West Nile Virus and Dengue Fever.

How to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your area and consider the treatments available to keep them at bay

To reduce the number of mosquitoes in your area, there are a few treatment options available that you may want to consider. One of the most effective ways to control them is by eliminating any standing water around your home and in your yard (ex: bird baths, gutters, unused tires, buckets etc.) as this is where they lay their eggs.

You can also wear protective clothing, and install screens on your windows and doors to prevent them from entering your home. The use of insect repellants is one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent mosquito bites.

Choose a product that contains Deets, picaridin, or lemon eucalyptus oil as these ingredients have been proven to be very effective against their bites. Another viable treatment option to consider is to use mosquito traps, which can attract and trap them using a variety of methods, such as light and carbon dioxide. Mosquito traps can be effective in reducing their numbers in your yard, but keep in mind that they may not eliminate all mosquitoes.

In addition, if you’re struggling to control mosquitoes using the various methods described above, you can also do a google search and type in “mosquito treatment” or “mosquito treatment near me” and hire a professional pest control company like Trapline Pest Solutions that can help you eliminate them from your property, These services typically use a combination of insecticides and other treatments to control mosquitoes that are safe and effective and will help eliminate them and their breeding sites.
