Mosquito Identification & Prevention

What are mosquitoes?

Florida residents are well-acquainted with mosquitoes as they have the unique ability to make our outdoor spaces almost unusable and certainly unenjoyable to spend time in. Mosquitoes are small flies that bite and feed on human and animal blood and are known vectors of debilitating and sometimes deadly diseases. The hot, humid weather and ample rainfall found around the area, area allow these pests to thrive year-round causing the need for efficient mosquito control in Tampa


Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Mosquitoes are vectors of serious diseases like the West Nile virus, Zika, malaria, eastern equine encephalitis, and St. Louis encephalitis. The diseases they spread through their saliva make them one of the most unwanted and dangerous pests to have in our yards. Mosquitoes are also responsible for transmitting parasitic heartworms to our pets, which can be fatal.

Why do I have a mosquito problem?

Mosquitoes are drawn to any area with standing water because standing water is where mosquito females lay their eggs. Any property near areas of standing water can become a place that mosquitoes live, feed, and breed. Properties near marshes, wetlands, wooded areas, ponds, and lakes tend to have large populations of mosquitoes residing on them.

Where will I find mosquitoes?

You will find that mosquitoes are most active at dusk or dawn. In order to escape the sun during the middle of the day, these insects often hide in our yards in trees, shrubs, tall grass, and under decks.

Breeding sites are where you will find large numbers of mosquitoes swarming on a Tampa property:

  • Planters and pots
  • Puddles
  • Drainage ditches
  • Piles of leaves, grass, and brush
  • Tires, buckets, and tree stumps
