Understanding Your Adversary: The Mosquito

Mosquitoes, often dismissed as mere nuisances, are complex organisms belonging to a family encompassing around 3,500 species. Comprising three body segments and a life cycle that includes stages as an egg, larva, pupa, and adult, mosquitoes present a unique challenge. Significantly, only female mosquitoes bite, with their saliva capable of inciting more than just an itch – it can transmit deadly diseases such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, and Zika Virus. With an annual death toll surpassing 500,000, mosquitoes are a formidable threat to global health.

Strategies for Mosquito Management in Maryland

Our approach at Bug Squashers leverages a combination of liquid residual insecticides and insect growth regulators. This dual strategy targets adult mosquitoes with residual insecticides while growth regulators interrupt the progression from larvae to pupae, breaking the cycle. As adult mosquitoes seek refuge in vegetation during daylight, we recommend regular trimming of overgrowth and treatment of foliage with residual insecticides to prevent their proliferation.

Targeting Mosquito Breeding Grounds

The key to sustainable mosquito control lies in eliminating their breeding sites. Even in minute quantities, stagnant water can serve as a fertile ground for mosquito larvae. It is crucial to regularly inspect and explicitly identify eating sites around your property, including birdbaths, gutters, trash cans, and discarded containers. Proactive measures reduce the mosquito population and diminish the risk of disease transmission.
