We all know that annoying sound of buzzing in our ears, followed by waking up in the morning to our legs and arms covered in itchy bites. It seems like no matter what you do, the bug sprays are never enough to keep you from winding up with mosquitoes flying around you and taking a bite. If you find yourself wondering why you are always dealing with mosquitoes and how you can stop them, keep reading!
Mosquitoes can be found all over the world, but they make their homes in places with high levels of moisture and heat. Humidity is a mosquito’s best friend. Mosquitoes, like all insects, are cold blooded. What this means is that a mosquito’s body temperature mimics that of its surroundings. For that reason, mosquitoes live in warmer climates, preferably between seventy and eighty degrees fahrenheit.
Mosquitoes tend to live around bodies of water, too. Puddles and other smaller pools of water also attract mosquitoes because they lay their eggs in stagnant water. Jacuzzis, heated pools, puddles, lakes, and more are all things that draw mosquitoes in.
Not every mosquito bites. That’s because blood is not a mosquito’s food source. Mosquitoes actually eat nectar and fruit juices. Only the females bite because they need a blood source in order to reproduce. Their eggs will only hatch as long as temperature remains constantly above fifty degrees, so depending on where you live, the breeding season may not be very long, or it could last for quite a while.
Regardless of how hard you try, mosquitoes are persistent. They find their way through the different bug repellents and nets, leaving you with those pesky little bug bites all over your body. Whether you have them currently or are looking to be proactive, it’s important to contact Insight Pest Solutions.
