  • What are mosquitoes?

    Mosquitoes are annoying and dangerous pests; though they are tiny in size, the impact they have is enormous. Mosquitoes are pests that drive people indoors because of their relentless bites.

    Mosquitoes thrive in Georgia. Our hot, humid weather conditions provide the perfect environment for them to create large, difficult to manage populations.

    Though mosquitoes are unwanted pests, when living out in nature away from people, they do benefit the ecosystem. Mosquitoes are small flies that provide a food source for many animals, including fish, bats, and birds. Female and male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar as their primary food source; as they feed, they help to pollinate different plants and trees.

  • Are mosquitoes dangerous?

    In addition to plant nectar, female mosquitoes require blood meals from people and animals to get the protein they need to produce viable eggs. Though mosquitoes have a short lifespan, while here, they feed on many different hosts and, during the feeding process, are capable of acquiring and spreading many diseases. While not every mosquito bite will result in sickness, the more contact you have with these biting pests, the bigger the chance your health will eventually be affected.

    In addition, in Georgia, cats and dogs are at huge risk of being infected with parasitic heartworms after being bitten by mosquitoes. Pets in our region should be on a year-round heartworm preventative prescribed by their veterinarian.

  • Why do I have a mosquito problem?

    Mosquitoes are a problem for anyone living in Georgia. Our climate provides the perfect amount of heat, humidity, and rainfall to allow mosquito populations to explode.

    Any outdoor space in our region is prone to experiencing problems with mosquitoes, but if your property has or is near things like densely wooded areas, ponds, tall grass, and a lot of flowering vegetation, mosquitoes are likely to be present in large numbers.

  • Where will I find mosquitoes?

    Mosquitoes are outdoor pests; however, they regularly wind up inside our homes after moving indoors through torn screens or open windows or doors. The more mosquitoes buzzing around your yard, the more likely some will eventually end up inside your home.

    Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk. They are seen in large numbers swarming around their breeding sites- areas of standing water. This time is also when you are most likely to be bitten by mosquitoes.

    During the heat of the day, most species of mosquitoes like to rest and escape the heat. Tree canopies, weeds, overgrown grass, woodpiles, and the underside of decks are common places to find mosquitoes resting.
