How to get rid of Mosquitoes
If you are trying to lower the number of mosquitoes in your backyard there are a couple things you can do to help.
Check for standing water around your home. Mosquitoes can breed in just a bottle cap of water, so try to eliminate any standing water that you find.
Look for foliage that might hold water. Be sure to check under the foliage of your plants for any standing water.
Flush out gutters that you have on your home because this is another place where mosquitoes can breed in just a small amount of standing water.
Cut back leafy shrubs or bushes around your house so that they don't hold water when it rains.
You can also add a few fish to any water features you have in your yard because the mosquito larvae will be eaten by the fish. This is a more natural way to control mosquitoes, rather than using insecticides or other harsh chemicals that might pose a danger to children and pets if they come in contact with them.
A mosquito control service may be the best way for you to lower the number of adult mosquitoes present in your yard. This service should include a liquid residual treatment in places where adult mosquitoes rest as well as a treatment in areas where mosquitos may lay eggs. In Evansville, Yikes Pest Control is a great choice to help make your yard mosquito free.
What are mosquitoes attracted to?
Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that we exhale. They also can smell lactic acid, octenol, and some other chemicals that humans emit when they sweat. So being out in the heat will attract more mosquitoes because your body is emitting these chemical odors that attract them.
So if you are outside on a hot day, you are more likely to get bitten by mosquitoes. They will also be attracted to light, so they may be more likely to bite you if you are outside at night. Mosquitoes are also attracted to certain colors, so wearing clothing that is light in color may make you more visible to them and increase your chances of getting bitten.
If you are interested in preventing mosquitoes, or in eliminating mosquitoes that are already established in your yard check out the above section, or give Yikes Pest Control a call. Yikes Pest Control, Mosquito control services.

What to expect from a mosquito service?

This may include using larvicide to kill the mosquitoes in their early stages or using insecticides to eliminate adult mosquitoes.
The benefits of using a professional pest service for mosquitoes.
When it comes to mosquitoes, most people would rather not have them around at all. Not only are they a nuisance, but they can also be dangerous since they can carry diseases like West Nile Virus. This is why many homeowners turn to professional pest control services for help getting rid of these unwanted guests.
There are a lot of benefits to using a professional mosquito service. For one, they have the experience and knowledge to get the job done right. They also have access to the latest and most effective treatments for mosquitoes. Plus, when you use a professional service, you can be sure that the treatment will be tailored specifically to your needs and situation.
What you can do to prepare for the treatment and to help reduce mosquito populations?
You can prepare for your mosquito treatment by doing the following:
- Make sure outdoor living spaces are free of standing water. Mosquitoes need this to breed, so you'll want to fix any clogged gutters or drains, clean out pet dishes after they eat, and dump anything that collects rainwater like old tires or buckets.
- Clear away any excess vegetation or debris that could provide mosquito populations with a place to hide.
- Move any outdoor furniture or toys so the pest control technician can get to all areas of your property.
Once the treatment is complete, it's important to keep up with regular maintenance in order to keep mosquitoes under control. This includes doing things like emptying outdoor pet dishes on a more regular basis, re-hanging bird feeders at least every five days, and making sure rain gutters get cleaned out after it rains. These steps, on top of a regularly occurring mosquito treatment will help reduce the mosquito population, as well as help prevent mosquito bites when you are hosting outdoor events or just enjoying your outdoor living space.
