Schedule Your Mosquito Control In Surprise Before These Pests Arrive
Mosquitoes are annoying pests that are familiar to everyone in Surprise. But many don't realize that they are also dangerous; diseases caused by mosquitoes are much less common here than in other parts of the world.
Diseases these pests spread include:
- Yellow fever
- West Nile virus
- Zika virus
Mosquitoes don't spread some of these diseases in the United States, but we have experienced outbreaks due to travelers. Although mosquitoes don't regularly spread diseases in our area, they are still a big problem, and no one wants to have them in their yard, especially when you want to spend time outside.
You can schedule high-quality mosquito control with the trusted professionals at Green House Pest Control.
What Is Causing All These Mosquitoes In Surprise?
It may seem like mosquitoes come out of nowhere and are uncontrollable, but some things could be causing mosquitoes to live in high populations on your property.
Here's what could be causing mosquitoes on your Surprise property:
Mosquitoes only need a small amount of water to reproduce, so pools, ponds, collected rainwater, and other sources can provide conditions for this pest to thrive.
Although mosquitoes need warm weather to survive, they can't last long in the sun. Because of this, overgrown grass and foliage, yard debris, and other shady areas will allow this pest to hide during the daytime.
Female mosquitoes need to take blood meals to reproduce, but they also need nutrients from plant nectar, so having excess flowers on your property can provide them with this.

What Everyone In Surprise Should Know About Mosquitoes
It's commonly believed that mosquitoes serve no purpose other than being a nuisance and spreading diseases. But most people don't realize the benefits of mosquitoes, such as the food source they provide for many other insects and animals. So without mosquitoes, birds, dragonflies, bats, fish, frogs, and many other critters wouldn't have the necessary food they need to survive.
Because mosquitoes are essential to a balanced ecosystem, we can't just eliminate them. However, you can keep mosquitoes away from your yard by implementing some preventative measures.
It would be best to start by eliminating mosquito breeding sites by filling in ground holes and removing debris and items that can hold water. Remove bird baths and use filters in pools, ponds, and other stationary landscaping features. Be sure to keep your gutters clear of organic debris and clog-free. Garbage cans also hold water, so keep them closed.
It also helps to reduce harborage areas like your lawn. Keep your grass cut short and trim the foliage regularly to keep it from overgrowing. Don't overwater your flowers, and remove any debris from your yard. Get rid of any outbuildings and structures that are no longer in use.
Other mosquito prevention methods include allowing natural predators to be in your yard, but remember that they also come with their issues. You can also reduce the flowering plants in your yard to help make it less attractive to mosquitoes. Deter mosquitoes by using plants in your yard that don't attract them, such as marigolds, citronella, lavender, rosemary, basil, and catnip, to name a few.
Prevention is said to be worth more than a pound of cure. Call our Green Home Pest Control experts for more mosquito tips and control.
Surprise's Complete Guide To Effective Mosquito Control
While many products are available over-the-counter (OTC), these products only provide short-term relief from mosquitoes. They only create a little barrier around where they are applied or used and don't address why mosquitoes might live in high populations on your property.
For effective mosquito control, it is best to work with pest control professionals who understand what allows mosquitoes to thrive. Surprise residents can look to our Green Home Pest Control experts. Our specialty mosquito control process includes the following steps:
Our technicians will inspect your property to identify potential harborage areas. Then we will review the findings with you, making recommendations for habitat control to reduce conducive conditions, an essential process for effective mosquito control.
