Mosquitoes are attracted to any source of water, and they look for the carbon dioxide emitted when people breathe. They find exactly what they want in Central Florida backyards.
The Two Main Things Mosquitoes Need
The two main things mosquitoes are looking for when they decide to settle in your yard are food in the form of blood meals that contain protein, which they get from Florida residents, and attractive breeding grounds. Mosquitoes breed in wet areas, and especially in sources of standing water. You may not even realize that these water sources are nearby, but mosquitoes have a real knack for finding them.
Planters left in the rain can fill with water and so can other items like discarded tires, children’s pools, planter saucers, water dishes for pets and bird baths. In nature, mosquitoes find ponds, rivers, creeks, streams and puddles to be ideal for their breeding purposes. They can be pretty creative when it comes to finding the perfect place to call home and to multiply. And mosquitoes do know how to multiply. In fact, a single female mosquito can lay 500 eggs at a time.
Mosquitoes are More Than Nuisance Pests
When mosquitoes bite, the bumps and welts they leave behind are itchy and annoying. The bigger problem is that mosquitoes are also carriers of some of the world’s most serious illnesses, making getting rid of them more important than ever before. They can cause diseases like West Nile Virus, Malaria, Encephalitis, Yellow and Dengue Fevers and the one in the news most recently, the Zika virus that leads to Zika Fever. Side effects from Zika alone include Microcephaly in infants and Guillain-Barre Syndrome in adults.
