Mosquito control in Miami

Mosquitoes are arguably one of the peskiest insects in Miami. You probably have been bitten by one while trying to enjoy nature in the spring or summer. Not only do mosquito bites cause itching and a great deal of annoyance, but they also have the potential to transmit diseases - so you should take the proper precautions if you have a mosquito infestation at your property in the Miami area.

Mosquitoes are quite prevalent throughout Miami-Dade County, thanks to the humidity and warm weather with the peak season for mosquitoes lasting from April to October.

If you have a bad mosquito infestation, we recommend you reach out to a reliable pest control company that is equipped to eradicate these flying pests from your premises. Have mosquitoes become intolerable around your property and you’re wondering what is the appropriate solution? Ehrlich Pest Control specialists can help you get rid of them with our treatment that is bound to eliminate these blood-feeding organisms. Contact us today for expert mosquito control services.

Types of mosquitoes in Miami area

As a resident of the Miami region, you will likely encounter mosquito bites at some point, if you haven’t already. Numerous types of mosquitoes live in Miami-Dade County. One species to be wary of is Aedes aegypti, which is capable of transmitting Zika virus and is native to Africa. Adults of this species are brown to black in color with marks. Aedes aegypti breed in containers, so getting rid of water that has gathered in containers at your property could help decrease numbers of these pests. This mosquito bites mainly when it’s daytime.

Another mosquito found in the Miami area is the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus). It is black and white in color. As this mosquito also breeds in containers, you should do away with water in objects like flower pots. Asian tiger mosquitoes feed more later in the afternoon and early in the morning. They can feed on people and animals come from Asia.

When a mosquito attacks you, it’s a good idea to wash the bite using soap and water. Applying anti-itch cream can help when the spot itches a lot. Consult a medical professional if you encounter strange symptoms or an odd reaction of any kind.

Although a few mosquitoes are a minor nuisance, they can occasionally become present in great numbers at your home or business. In that case, you should enlist the help of professionals - not only to prevent the itchiness of bites but also to lower the likelihood of any disease being transmitted.

Home mosquito control in Miami

Here at Ehrlich, we understand mosquitoes can ruin a fun evening outside at your Miami-area residence, so home mosquito control is important. After you contact us, we will come to your property and conduct an inspection, pinpointing areas that could be allowing mosquitoes to breed. This could help you recognize conditions around your structure that facilitate mosquito infestation.

We can apply treatment to vegetation outside your property, where mosquitoes may be spending time. Additionally, we can treat stagnant water to inhibit breeding activity. Multiple treatments at your premises may need to take place for the mosquitoes to be removed.

Even if you are not currently dealing with mosquitoes, they may bother you at some point. You can take action on your own to avoid heavy issues:

  • Get rid of standing water around your premises, such as in paint buckets and gutters. That will make it less likely for mosquitoes to breed. Even pet dishes can hold water. For breeding to take place, mosquitoes need standing water or soil that is moist.
  • Keep your vegetation - such as grass and bushes - well-trimmed.
  • Mesh screens can help keep mosquitoes out.
  • Wear mosquito repellent to decrease the likelihood of bites occurring.

In cases where you are already experiencing mosquito problems, we will give recommendations for how to lessen the number of mosquitoes at your property. For example, if stagnant water is present in bird baths or tires, we will recommend that the water be eliminated.
