Mosquito Swarms Are No Match For Bite Away’s Mosquito Killer

No More Smelly Sprays or Candles

Mosquitoes are one of the most widespread insects worldwide. Only the females bite, and then only when they are ready to breed. Typically, their diet consists primarily of nectar. However, their sheer numbers can create an illusion that they must feast on blood to survive.

Are Mosquitoes a Threat?

Indeed, mosquitoes pose a serious threat due to their ability to transmit many deadly diseases, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 400,000 to 1,000,000 people globally each year. Their ability to spread diseases quickly is amazingly effective. While malaria has been eradicated in California, residents still need to be wary of other dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses, such as encephalitis.

Why Do I Have a Mosquito Issue?

The root of most mosquito problems can be linked to stagnant or standing water. Mosquitoes typically remain in close proximity to their birthplace and breed in the same bodies of water, or nearby. Therefore, if you have stagnant water on your property, you could be experiencing mosquito bites from multiple generations of the same family.

Where Can I Find Mosquitoes?

Mosquito control

Mosquitoes are often found in very small containers or other items that can hold water such as pots that don’t drain, children’s toys, spare tires, yard drain pipes, rain gutters – basically any item that can hold some water. Unlike other pests, mosquitoes make their presence well-known with their characteristic buzzing and biting.

How Can I Eliminate Mosquitoes?

One of the most effective strategies for mosquito control in San Diego involves the removal of stagnant water on your property. With no place to lay eggs, female mosquitoes are likely to relocate. But they may be coming from a neighbor’s property or a nearby water source. That’s where effective strategies come into play, and where Bite Away excels. Mosquitos can only travel short distances so they rest under plant leaves, patio furniture, and any shaded area until they are ready to travel again. To break this cycle, Bite Away technicians will treat around windows and doors, under patio furniture, and any foliage that is near your home.
