Larvae will not be able to develop into adults, and the adults will carry our products on themselves, spreading them to other mosquitos in the area.
  • Mosquito traps INCLUDED in your service: These traps act as a breeding ground for adult mosquitos, however larvae will not be able to develop into adults and will die before leaving the station. Even better, station effectiveness is not limited to the station itself, but extends to the surrounding area via adult mosquitos spreading the biocides to other mosquito harborage spots.
  • Yard misting treatment: At each service, we will mist all potential mosquito harborage areas throughout your property. Mosquitos love to land on the underside of leaves, inside bushes and other plants, in grass and other hot, humid areas

Learn More About these Common and Dangerous Salt Lake City Pests

Mosquitos are tiny flying insects that are known for their pesky bites and the distinctive, high-pitched buzzing of their wings. These small creatures belong to the family Culicidae and can be recognized by their slender bodies, long legs, and a proboscis specially adapted for piercing and sucking blood. However, only female mosquitos require blood meals, which they need for the development of their eggs, while males typically feed on nectar or plant juices.

Common behaviors of mosquitos include seeking out blood meals by detecting carbon dioxide and body heat and laying their eggs in standing water. Mosquitos are vectors for various diseases, which they can transmit through their bites, making them more than just a nuisance. 

As for their activity patterns, they are generally most active during dusk and dawn when the air is cooler and more humid. Some species, though, particularly those in urban areas, may bite throughout the day.

What Do Mosquitos Look Like?

Mosquitos are often recognized by their distinctive slender, elongated bodies that appear almost fragile, measuring no more than a few millimeters in size. They possess a pair of wings and three pairs of long, hair-like legs that enable them to land softly on humans and animals without being immediately noticed. At the forefront of their anatomy is a long, needle-like proboscis, which is what a mosquito uses to penetrate the skin and draw out blood.

Their coloration varies, though most are a combination of gray and white, with some dark or iridescent blue scales creating patterns on their bodies. These scales are not only for show; they can also serve as sensory receptors. Despite their small size, mosquitos can be identified by the high-pitched whine they produce when flying, which is usually the first indicator of their presence before any biting ensues. When not in flight, these pests are generally found near standing water, where they lay their eggs, proliferating rapidly in ideal conditions.

What Kinds of Habitats Are Mosquitos Drawn To?

Mosquitos thrive in environments that provide the right mixture of water, warmth, and shelter. If you want to minimize their presence on your property, pay attention to these characteristics that can turn your space into a mosquito haven.

Mosquitos like to live in places that have: 

  • Stagnant water sources: Mosquitos require water to breed, and even a small amount of standing water can serve as a breeding ground. This can include anything from bird baths, clogged gutters, and rain barrels to plant saucers and pet water dishes.
  • Shaded areas: These insects prefer to avoid direct sunlight as it can dehydrate them. As such, shaded regions provided by trees, shrubs, or manufactured structures can be a comfortable resting spot for mosquitos during the day.
  • Tall grass and weeds: Overgrown vegetation gives mosquitos a cool, moist environment to shelter in when they're not active.
  • Untrimmed shrubs and dense bushes: Like tall grass, dense shrubbery can protect mosquitos from predators and high temperatures.
  • Garden ponds and untreated pools: Bodies of water that are not regularly treated with chemicals or adequately maintained can rapidly become mosquito breeding sites.

These areas can typically provide the conditions mosquitos seek, but the good news is that by managing these aspects, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of these pests turning your property into their home.

What Kinds of Diseases Can Mosquitos Spread?

A mosquito infestation can expose your family to a variety of diseases, some of which can be particularly prevalent in the Salt Lake City area. Understanding the health risks carried by these insects is crucial for preventative measures. Here's a snapshot of some of the illnesses that mosquitos can transmit:

A mosquito infestation can expose your family to: 

  • West Nile virus: A common concern in this region, most people infected with this virus do not feel sick. Still, it can lead to serious neurological illnesses in a small percentage of people.
  • Zika virus: While less common, Zika can cause fever, rash, headache, and joint pain, and in pregnant women, it is linked to congenital disabilities.
  • Chikungunya virus: This disease typically causes joint pain and fever, and while it's not native to the area, cases have appeared in travelers returning from affected regions.
  • Dengue fever: Rare in Salt Lake City, dengue can cause severe flu-like symptoms and sometimes develops into a potentially lethal complication called severe dengue.

It's important to stay informed about the potential health threats posed by mosquitos and take steps to protect your household, such as utilizing screens on windows and doors, applying insect repellent, and eliminating standing water on your property. If mosquitos are a problem in your area, contacting a professional pest control service can offer additional protection for your family and community.
