Signs of Mosquito Control Infestation

Signs of a mosquito infestation can be quite evident if you know what to look for. Here are some common indicators:

  • Increased Mosquito Bites: The most obvious sign is a noticeable increase in mosquito bites. If you and your family members are frequently bitten, especially indoors, it suggests an infestation.
  • Visible Mosquitoes: Seeing mosquitoes in your home or around your property, particularly during the daytime when they are usually less active, indicates a large population nearby.
  • Buzzing Sound: The high-pitched buzzing of mosquitoes, especially near your ears, can indicate their presence. This is usually more noticeable in the evening or at night when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Mosquito Larvae in Water: Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Check any stagnant water around your property, such as in bird baths, plant saucers, clogged gutters, or unused swimming pools. Mosquito larvae look like tiny wriggling worms just below the water’s surface.
  • Mosquito Egg Rafts: Mosquito eggs are often laid in clusters that float on the surface of stagnant water. These egg rafts look like small, dark specks or clumps on the water.
  • Sheltered Areas: Mosquitoes often rest in shaded and humid areas during the day. Check for them in dark corners, under sinks, or in closets, garages, and sheds.
  • Pet Distress: Pets can be affected by mosquitoes too. If your pets are scratching more than usual or have visible bites, it could be a sign of mosquitoes in the area.
  • Increased Mosquito Activity at Dusk and Dawn: Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk. Increased activity during these times can indicate an infestation.

If you notice several of these signs, it’s a good idea to take action to control the mosquito population around your home and seek professional pest control assistance if necessary. This might include removing standing water, using mosquito repellents, and installing screens on windows and doors.

Why do I have them?

Mosquitoes breed on or near standing water so any standing water may become a breeding ground and only a thin layer is required for egg development. Therefore, empty cans, bird feeders, old tires, and clogged gutters may harbor these pests. Mosquitoes are also known to travel as much as 20 miles in search of a blood meals so it is safe to say that they may become a problem even in areas without standing water.

General Facts:

Most species of mosquitoes are nuisance pests because the female will consume animal blood to help with egg production. They are often considered one of the most dangerous pests because they help transmit many harmful human and livestock diseases. Some of these diseases include malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, filariasis, encephalitis, and West Nile Virus. Some mosquitoes also transmit dog heartworm.

Mosquitoes will normally feed on nectar, and only the female of select species has the ability to suck blood. In addition, only mosquitoes living in certain habitats will transmit disease. This is why public health departments need to know which species, and even which strains, of mosquitoes they are dealing with in a particular area since this helps in pinpointing the exact type of mosquito and the illness they may spread.

Mosquitoes typically emerge from their daytime resting places to feed primarily at dawn and dusk. Adult mosquitoes are about 1/4 to 3/8 inch long and have color patterns due to the wings, body and legs being covered with scales. Color combinations include brown, gray, black, white and silver.


Mosquito control begins with a thorough assessment of the problem through surveys and then choosing the control measures best suited to the situation.

There are normally 3 steps to the control process and they include:

1. The elimination of breeding sites by modifying the habitat (source reduction).
2. Control of larvae by introduction of insect growth regulator microbes and predatory fish.
3. Control of adult insects with pesticide fog applications and application of residual insecticides to resting surfaces.

The Only Thing Left Buzzing is Praise Customer Reviews

    "Quality and expertise. Awesome service!"

    Anthony was outstanding- really responsive and willing to come out on a Saturday to start taking on some pest control. Just a week later, and there are no more bug problems. It speaks to their quality and expertise. Anthony also took extra time to give my wife and me (new homeowners) some lawn care pointers. Just awesome service!

    Anthony was amazing! He was able to have my house serviced in just a few hours. I had a flying ant infestation and he could tell the concern in my voice. When he was here, he was professional and understanding. We will definitely hire him in the future for anything else that comes up!

    "I would highly recommend Apex and look forward to future visits from them! Thanks guys!"

    Anthony was so professional on the phone, answering all of my questions and was very informative with things I didn’t even think about! Cory was very courteous and professional while treating my backyard for wasps and inside for normal pests. My favorite part was the fact that I called the evening before and they were at my house to spray the next morning (even early to our scheduled time)! I would highly recommend Apex and look forward to future visits from them! Thanks guys!

    APEX started treating my home almost 7 years ago and I’ve been satisfied every single time my home is treated. I am deathly afraid of spiders and when my home is sprayed, I never see any! Anthony and his team are great and always very kind. I recommend APEX to anyone who wants fast results in getting rid of pests!
