The Ultimate Mosquito Prevention Guide For Dallas Property Owners
May 15, 2023 - Mosquitoes
Dallas property owners are familiar with mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are capable of surviving and thriving all over the world and are found in almost every environment. Mosquitoes need blood to survive and reproduce, and if you are outside when they are active, you will be on their menu. Mosquitoes can make it almost impossible to enjoy your yard, and they can follow you everywhere you go unless you can figure out how to keep mosquitoes away.
If mosquitoes are tormenting you in your Dallas yard, Quell Pest Control stands ready to help you. Our seasoned technicians know all about pest control in Dallas, and we can help you eliminate any pest infestation, including mosquitoes.
The Life Cycle Of A Mosquito
Mosquitoes have four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Mosquitoes lay their eggs very close to or in water. They don’t need much — even a small capful will do. When the eggs hatch, mosquito larvae grow and feed in the water. When they enter the pupa stage, mosquitoes still live in water but do not feed. They finally emerge from the water as adults. Mosquitoes can immediately start feeding on blood when they turn into adults, and the cycle starts all over again. All of the mosquitoes that bite you are adult females, who use the blood they get from you to nourish their eggs.

Common Mosquito-Borne Diseases
Mosquitoes need blood to reproduce and are constantly on the hunt for it. They hunt for hosts using their keen sense of smell and can follow you anywhere you go in your yard. Mosquitoes use a needle-like appendage to suck blood from hosts. To keep the blood from thickening as they feed, mosquitoes inject their saliva into the host at the same time. This is how they spread diseases. If a mosquito feeds on a host infected with dangerous pathogens, it can inject these pathogens into every host they later feed on. Mosquitoes are associated with tularemia, encephalitis, chikungunya, dengue, and West Nile virus, and are among the most prolific disease-spreading insects in the world.

- Trim bushes and shrubs: Mosquitoes use foliage for shelter, and trimming it back can help decrease the number of mosquitoes that you will have to deal with.
- Mow your grass: Mowing your grass is an easy way to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your property, given that mosquitoes like to hide in tall grass.
