Insect Injuries – 6 Ways To Prevent Mosquito Bites

Battling mosquitos is never a pleasant experience. These ferocious insects can cause havoc when they are present on your Omaha or Iowa property. Their painful bite can result in an allergic reaction, and mosquitos also carry a range of diseases, including the West Nile virus, which mosquitos can pick up when they feed on infected birds. As mosquitos also feed on human blood, this disease can be transmitted to you and your family if mosquitos are buzzing around your home.

At Genie Pest Control, we understand that you want to enjoy your home without living in fear of being bitten by mosquitos. If you suspect that you have mosquito infestation in your home, be sure to contact our mosquito removal experts as soon as possible. Our exterminators have the experience and expertise to help you to remove mosquitos once and for all.

Below our mosquito removal experts outline six simple yet highly effective ways to prevent mosquito bites if you already have mosquitoes on your property.

Cover Up

Mosquitos feed on our blood by piercing the skin. Keeping your skin covered with long pants and long sleeves is the most effective way to make yourself less attractive to mosquitoes.

Remove Standing Water

If there are any sources of standing water, such as in a birdbath, kid’s toys, buckets, or gutters, around your property, be sure to remove them right away. Mosquitos breed on standing water, which means more unwanted guests on your Omaha or Iowa property. If you notice more mosquitos around your home than before, be sure to contact our mosquito removal experts as soon as possible, as they could be breeding nearby.

DEET Repellent

N, N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide, also known as DEET, is often found in insect repellents that are highly effective on mosquitoes, ticks, leeches, fleas, and other insects that like to bite. Using DEET will deter mosquitos from coming near you.

Doors And Windows

To keep mosquitos out of your home and reduce the risk of being bitten, at Genie Pest Control, our mosquito removal experts recommend that you install screens on all of your doors and windows. With screens installed, you can leave your windows and doors open to allow plenty of fresh air into your home while keeping mosquitos out.

Move Air Around

Although mosquitos have a powerful bite, they are not such powerful fliers. Using strategically placed fans, either indoors or outdoors, you can blow air quickly around your home, making it difficult for mosquitos to get close to you.

Avoid Dark Clothing

Mosquitos are attracted to darker colors, so choose what you wear carefully when there are mosquitoes. Our mosquito removal experts advise sticking to lighter-colored clothing while enjoying the outside atmosphere to keep the mosquitoes away.

Be Safe And Stay Protected Against Mosquito Bites

Following the tips above, you can significantly reduce your risk of being bitten by mosquitos. If you want to enjoy your Omaha or Iowa property without the risk of mosquito bites, get in touch with our mosquito removal experts to eliminate these irritating and potentially dangerous pests. Our exterminators can help you enjoy as much outside time on your property as possible.
