What Are Mosquitos?
Mosquitos are small flying insects. They have dark, brown bodies and three pairs of slender legs. There are more than 3,500 species of insects with the earliest known ones dating back 200 million years!
Viking’s certified entomologist explains only female mosquitos bite and they do so to suck blood and absorb nutrients so it can reproduce. They identify their food supply through the carbon monoxide exhaled, and temperature signatures. Mosquitoes can travel for miles to find a food source, and it just so happens that we are quite a meal for them!
Mosquito bites are a nuisance, but they are not threatening on their own. The problem is whether a mosquito is carrying a disease like West Nile. Ocean County, NJ gets cases of this disease each year. Fortunately, we in the U.S. do not have to worry about malaria, one of the world’s deadliest killers.
When Are Mosquitoes Present in Ocean County New Jersey?
Summertime is when mosquitos are out in full force. Specifically, the months between April and October. Female mosquitoes seek standing water to lay eggs. In the wild, this would be around lakes, rivers, ponds, and areas that retain water. Introduce humans to these environments and now we are part of their food supply.
Our Ocean County, NJ exterminators explain mosquitos lay eggs in:
- Water-filled buckets sitting outside
- Patches in our yards that collect water
- Gutter build up and retained water
- Damp spots in basements
Mosquito control in Ocean County New Jersey starts by removing breeding grounds!
