The Dangers of a Mosquito Infestation in Orlando, FL

Mosquitos do more than cause discomfort due to their unending buzzing and itchy bites. The most significant risk associated with mosquitos is their potential to transmit diseases. Mosquitos are known vectors for several serious illnesses, such as West Nile virus, Zika virus, malaria, and dengue fever. These diseases can lead to severe health complications and, in certain cases, can be fatal. In Florida, where mosquitos are especially prevalent, the risk of encountering these disease-carrying pests is considerably higher than in some other areas.

Warning Signs of a Mosquito Infestation in Orlando, FL 

Addressing a potential mosquito infestation quickly is essential. First, the rapid reproductive cycle of mosquitoes can lead to a significant population increase in a short period. Female mosquitoes can lay hundreds of eggs at a time, and under ideal conditions, these eggs can hatch in just 24 to 48 hours. Consequently, a small mosquito problem can quickly escalate into a large and unmanageable infestation if not dealt with immediately. 

The more established an infestation becomes, the more challenging and costly it is to eradicate. Early intervention can save time, money, and resources in the long run by preventing the need for extensive treatment. You should be aware of the warning signs of a mosquito problem so that you know when to call our team.

You should not wait to get in touch with PestBear if you notice any of the following signs of a mosquito infestation:

  • Increased Mosquito Activity. The most obvious sign of an infestation is a noticeable increase in the number of mosquitos in and around your property. Encountering the occasional mosquito is not necessarily a problem, but if you are constantly swatting away mosquitos or waking up with mosquito bites, you likely have an infestation.
  • Larvae or Pupae in Standing Water. Mosquitos breed in stagnant water, where they lay their eggs. If you notice larvae (which look like tiny wrigglers) or pupae (which are curled up and resemble a comma) in standing water around your home or property, there is a good chance you have a mosquito infestation. You should check any containers that collect rainwater, such as planters, bird baths, or pet water dishes, these can serve as ideal breeding grounds.
  • Buzzing Sounds. A characteristic of mosquitos is their constant buzzing. If you frequently hear this sound, especially at dusk or dawn when mosquitos are most active, you may have an infestation.
  • Mosquitoes Active During the Day. While mosquitoes are typically more active during the early morning and late evening, a significant presence during the day can suggest a serious infestation.

Why You Should Avoid DIY Mosquito Control Methods 

The temptation to try to tackle your mosquito problem yourself may be high, but you should understand the potential downsides and risks associated with do-it-yourself (DIY) control methods. Over-the-counter sprays and traps may provide temporary relief, but they often fail to address the root of the problem: mosquito breeding sites. Mosquito life cycles are complex, and without a thorough elimination approach, DIY methods may only target adult mosquitoes, leaving larvae and eggs unaddressed. This incomplete coverage can result in a recurring mosquito problem despite your best efforts.

DIY methods can often be more time-consuming and labor-intensive than anticipated. Identifying potential breeding grounds, applying treatments, and maintaining traps or other control tools requires a significant time investment. This takes precious time away from other tasks, often in support of efforts that are unfortunately doomed to be ineffective. Keep in mind that comprehensive mosquito control generally calls for consistent and regular application treatments, meaning you may not initially be aware of the scope of what you are committing to when attempting a DIY fix, especially if you have a large property.

Many DIY solutions involve the use of chemicals that can be harmful to humans, pets, and the environment, especially when not used or disposed of properly. Lack of professional knowledge and experience may lead to improper use, potentially posing a risk to your family's health and the surrounding ecosystem.

Though DIY methods might seem more cost-effective initially, the recurring costs of treatments and tools, coupled with the potential for ineffective results, can lead to more significant expenses in the long run. When you choose our Orlando mosquito control professionals, you can receive a better value for your money. Put simply, we get the job done right the first time!

How We Handle Mosquito Infestations in Orlando, FL

Our approach to eradicating mosquito infestations is thorough, strategic, and backed by proven techniques and technologies. When we receive a call, our first step is to perform a meticulous site inspection. Our experienced professionals will visit your property at your convenience and identify all potential mosquito breeding sites. These may be located in obvious sources like ponds or bird baths as well as in less noticeable areas like gutters, old tires, or even depressions in the landscape that collect water. We tailor our inspections to the specific characteristics of the property to ensure a complete and accurate assessment.

Once we have evaluated the scope and nature of the mosquito problem, we will work with you to remove potential breeding sites. This involves emptying and cleaning any containers with stagnant water, clearing any water-logged areas, and making recommendations for landscape modifications that can prevent water accumulation. However, we understand that not all water sources can be removed, especially in Florida's natural environment. For these unavoidable water sources, we employ larvicides, which are substances designed to kill mosquito larvae before they can mature.

Our team then typically applies adulticides, which are products intended to kill adult mosquitos. We use fogging machines to disperse these treatments around your property, focusing on the areas where adult mosquitos are likely to rest during the day. This includes under patio furniture, in the foliage of dense shrubs, and in shaded areas close to buildings. We use adulticides that are not only effective but also safe for humans, pets, and the environment. 

After the current infestation has been dealt with, we offer ongoing, scheduled treatments tailored to your property's specific needs. This ensures that the mosquito population remains under control and that any potential resurgence is quickly addressed. We will also provide you with guidance on simple things you can do to help keep mosquitos from returning, such as regularly emptying water containers and maintaining lawns and vegetation.
