    Paul Bello: Mosquitoes are flying insects, even if they are not breeding in your yard they are able to fly on to your property from their breeding areas and bite you and your family.

    Hi! I am Consulting Entomologist Paul Bello and today I am talking to you about mosquito control. What it is, how its done and what you need to do to keep these biting insects away. The first thing you need to do is assure that you are not breeding mosquitoes in your own yard by eliminating any standing water sources which could become breeding sites. Just a little bit of water can breed a lot of mosquitoes, so you want make sure that you are not providing them with any extra breeding locations.

    Next, check that all screens, windows, doors are all closed correctly and are in good repair. Then you can bolster these measures through the effective application of insecticides targeting and adults and the larva. Larva control helps to eliminate the most mosquitoes at once because there are so many found in the area being treated.

    We still need to reduce and eliminate the biting and egg laying adult female mosquitoes. This is done through the application of residual insecticides to targeted areas where adult mosquitoes will be found in rest However, even if you do all these things correctly mosquitoes can still be a problem. This is why you may want to hire a pest professional to handle your mosquito control services. A competent pest professional will implement a well planned mosquito control program designed for your region to deliver optimal results .

    Such a program will include an inspection to identify conditions conducive to mosquito problems and provide written recommendations on how to correct such conditions.
