How To Identify Mosquitoes

  • Mosquitoes are small, flying insects with a slender body, six legs, and long mouthparts (proboscis) for feeding on blood.
  • They are typically dark colored, with some species displaying distinctive white or light markings on their body and legs.
  • Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite, requiring blood to develop their eggs.
  • Standing water is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes, as females lay their eggs in or near water.
  • In South Carolina, common species include the Aedes, Culex, and Anopheles mosquitoes.


Mosquitoes Habits

  • Mosquitoes are most active during dawn and dusk but can bite at any time, especially the Aedes species, which are daytime feeders.
  • They are attracted to carbon dioxide, body heat, and certain body odors, making humans a target for bites.
  • Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one inch of standing water, making backyard containers, bird baths, and clogged gutters potential breeding sites.
  • The lifespan of mosquitoes can vary, but females typically live longer than males, with some species living a month or more.


How To Prevent Mosquitoes

  • Eliminate standing water around your property, including in flower pots, buckets, barrels, and in clogged gutters.
  • Use mosquito repellents when spending time outdoors, especially during peak biting hours.
  • Install screens on windows and doors to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
  • Consider the use of mosquito traps or professional mosquito control systems for larger areas.
  • For effective, long-term mosquito control, contact Marett Pest Control for a comprehensive assessment and customized treatment plan.
