don't let a mosquito infestation harm your family

Mosquito Menace – 4 Telltale Signs You Have An Infestation

Now that summer has officially arrived, and the temperatures are rising, unfortunately, so too is the number of mosquitos. These small flying insects can make a real nuisance of themselves, and while some mosquito bites are relatively harmless, others can carry diseases that are potentially very harmful to our health.

Female mosquitos are the ones that you need to be aware of, as it is with their long piercing mouth that they break the skin to consume our blood. The blood serves as a source of protein for the female’s eggs, and as they become more active, we here at Genie Pest Control see a rise in the level of infestations locally. You must keep an eye out for the following signs of a potential mosquito infestation so that you can get in touch with our mosquito removal experts at Genie Pest Control to solve the problem as soon as possible.

Distinctive High-Pitched Buzzing Sound

Just like other winged insects, mosquitos make a high-pitched buzzing noise as they move rapidly move their wings. However, the buzzing noise that a mosquito typically makes is much more high-pitched than that of other insects. Should you notice that you hear this high-pitched buzzing sound regularly in or around your Omaha or Iowa property, there is a good chance you have a mosquito infestation that needs professional mosquito removal attention.

You Are Getting Bit

One of the most unfortunate but most obvious signs that you have mosquitoes is the bite marks. If there are a lot of mosquitos near your home, you will naturally be bitten more. And, more than likely, it is female mosquitos as they bite in order to lay eggs. If the females of these pesky insects are near, the chances of an infestation are much higher than getting an occasional bite here and there.

Hovering Around Food

If you have food left out on your kitchen counter, or other areas of your Omaha or Iowa home, you may notice mosquitos being attracted to it. This is because mosquitos, males, in particular, are drawn to flower nectar and other sweet items such as fruit. Although this is primarily a food source for male mosquitos, female mosquitos can also feed on sweets. Our mosquito management experts at Genie Pest Control recommend always keeping your food in sealable containers during the summer months. And, if you notice mosquitos gathering around food, be sure to get in touch with our team right away.

More Scratching At Night

Often times, a mosquito can bite you during the day, and you won’t even notice. However, at nighttime, the bite can flare up, becoming itchy and irritable. If you find that you are scratching more at nighttime, it could be because you have a mosquito infestation, and you are being bitten during the day without your knowledge. For Omaha or Iowa homeowners who believe they have an infestation, it’s essential to take measures to schedule a pest removal expert to rid the mosquitos as soon as possible.

Call In The Professionals To Ensure Your Home Is Mosquito-Free

Dealing with a mosquito infestation is one pest removal task that you should always leave to the experts. Not only can mosquito bites be harmful to your health, but it is also crucial that an infestation is removed effectively to prevent another infestation from occurring again in the near future. If you suspect that you may have a mosquito infestation on your property, contact our mosquito management experts at Genie Pest Control.
