Mosquitoes are actually a type of fly and are characterized by their thin bodies and wings as well as their long legs. Of the many mosquito species, the Asian tiger is the type most commonly encountered in our region. They appear in shades of brown and black and generally have paler bands on their bodies and legs. Size varies but an adult may reach about 1/2 inch in length. Only female mosquitoes are known to bite and will take a blood meal from humans and animals in order to develop her eggs.
Generally mosquitoes are a problem if you have standing water on your property. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs on or near standing water, which includes clogged gutters or drainage ditches as well as bird baths and tree cavities. Anywhere that rainwater may collect is an ideal mosquito breeding site.
Mosquito bites produce varied reactions including redness, itching and discomfort, but may also transmit serious disease and illness to humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Viruses that mosquitoes are known transmitters of include the West Nile virus. Mosquitoes can also cause Canine Heartworm in pets.
Reducing the mosquito population on your property is a frustrating and overwhelming task. That’s why our pest control services in Cleveland, Detroit, Troy, and throughout Ohio and Michigan include the necessary treatment to get rid of mosquitoes before your next outdoor event.
Due to the complexity of treatment, mosquitoes are generally not a pest many people have success in eradicating. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
Mosquito problems can be difficult to prevent and that is why you should contact Rose Pest Solutions before your next outdoor event. Our mosquito services are designed to lessen the mosquito problem on your property so that you can relax and enjoy your get together.
"Gary and I have had our home in the care of Rose Pest Solutions for the last 4 yrs. We have been very pleased with our service with Rose. Lynn B. has always been prompt, courteous, and very responsive to our needs. We live in a large home with quite a few storage rooms; which is surrounded by a very wooded lot. We are literally "renting from the critters"; so we do have issues with them from time to time. As I said to Lynn today on the phone, we loved Troy, a former tech for us for the last 3 yrs. Troy has moved on, and Mike is the tech who has taken care of us in this last year. We could not be MORE PLEASED with his informative, easy going abilities to deal with "unpleasant situations".
Just wanted to pass along our satisfaction. "
