Mosquitoes & Ticks
We realize the irritation and health risks that mosquitoes pose to you, your family, and your pets. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they also carry dangerous diseases. That is why Mizza is determined to do everything possible to rid the world of these maddening bloodsuckers. Understanding how mosquitoes breed and where they prefer to hide is essential for controlling mosquito populations. Eliminating the areas where they lay eggs and hang out will help you get rid of them in your backyard.
Some ways to identify mosquito prone areas are by looking for:
- Standing Water- Mosquito larvae require water to reproduce. This makes it an excellent location to concentrate on when employing mosquito control techniques.
- Excessive Overgrowth and Yard Debris- Mosquitos frequently seek refuge in tall grass, shrubbery, and woodpiles. This is why it is critical to keep your yard tidy, trimmed, and debris-free.
- Ineffective Preventative Measures- Many store-bought mosquito repellents produce subpar results. Popular do-it-yourself mosquito repellents such as citronella candles, mosquito coils, and mosquito lamps and lanterns are largely untested and ineffective.
Mosquitoes are never a homeowner’s friend. They can consume up to three times their body weight in blood, transmit viruses, and reproduce rapidly. Mosquitoes are responsible for approximately 1 million deaths per year as the primary “vectors” for several harmful diseases, including Malaria, Zika, and Dengue, making them the world’s deadliest animal. The good news is that in North America, mosquitoes rarely transmit deadly diseases. A mosquito bite, on the other hand, is never a welcome sight.
