As your team and ally, AMCO Pest will deal with Mosquito prevention this season so you can get back to fine wines and summer evenings on your patio.
With over 170 species of Mosquitoes in the US and thousands more throughout the world, Mosquito prevention is a must. It is only a matter of time until you too begin to feel the first itch right there on that familiar spot, where you always get bit… your forearm!
Mosquitoes belong to a family of flies called the Culicidae. Not all species suck blood, but many of those that do can transmit diseases, including West Nile virus and yellow fever. Even disease-free mosquitoes are irritating because of their saliva, which causes an allergic reaction in the form of an itchy red bump.

Amco can help to control mosquitoes on your property. There are many methods that we use for mosquito control. Depending on the situation, source reduction (e.g. removing stagnant water), biocontrol (e.g. importing natural predators such as dragonflies), trapping, and/or insecticides to kill larvae or adults may be used.
Mosquito Life Cycle
Mosquito Prevention Measures
Eliminate standing water
It takes approximately one week for mosquitoes to breed in undisturbed standing water.
Water like this can occur in some unlikely places or ones that you can easily overlook such as:
- Bird baths
- Clogged gutters
- baby pools
- Old unused tires
- Potted Plant Saucers
Do a thorough inspection around your property to check for sources of standing water to eliminate breeding mosquitoes.
Contact us if mosquitoes are an ongoing problem on your property or you live on or near water. We can also treat your property if you have an upcoming event to reduce mosquito populations and ensure a more enjoyable outside area for guests.
