Get Rid of Mosquitoes!

Pests have been around since the beginning of time, but that doesn’t mean they should stay—especially inside our homes. That’s why if you are in search of a full-proof solution to keeping your household free of unwanted guests, Dan’s Pest Control is proudly reporting for duty.

After serving the city of Charlotte for nearly 20 years, Dan’s Pest Control has learned the value of building personal relationships with our clients, while providing the utmost professional care. For years, our company has seen the brutal truth of pests firsthand, which is why it is essential to find a service that specializes in ridding your home of everything that creeps and crawls.

Ants. Roaches. Fleas. Mosquitos. We’ve conquered them all with our specialized and comprehensive treatments, which work to penetrate the source of the problem first and foremost. Too often only surface-level treatments are applied in pest control, and that is something we firmly stand against. That’s because Dan’s Pest Control does not only treat the infestation, but we work tirelessly to ensure that it doesn’t come back.

Yet, in all of our years of experience, Dan’s Pest Control has found that mosquitoes can be very harmful if not properly contained. In fact, more often than not, many individuals underestimate the danger of mosquitoes. They are not simply buzzing annoyances at backyard barbeques and soccer games. Instead, mosquitos can pose a severe threat to your health, depending upon the diseases they may carry. That’s why Dan’s Pest Control prefers to step in before the problem truly starts.


It’s important to keep in mind that a mosquito represents the end of the problem. It is already an adult in its developmental stage, which is why you often have to find the mosquito in its larva beginning. With Dan’s Pest Control, we first seek out treating larval habitats that continue to fester around yards and porches. In that way, the larval development sites—where mosquitoes mature—get destroyed, thereby helping to prevent further growth.

Common breeding grounds for mosquitos are trash cans, swimming pools, buckets and flowerpots. Any location where water typically sits for a long period of time is susceptible to become a mosquito breeding ground. But that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of your beloved swimming pool. It just means that Dan’s Pest Control will have to implement integrated tactics that focus on source reduction, while mapping long-term solutions for each individual household.

Before scheduling a treatment, it’s typically helpful to get to know your property a little better. Take a quick stroll around your yard and identify any areas that seem particularly prone to mosquitos. From there, Dan’s Pest Control can get a better sense of your home and assess the areas that will need a thorough extermination treatment.

Additionally, it helps to take note of any vegetation areas lingering outside of your home. Mosquitoes are notorious for resting in all kinds of vegetation during the day, especially in hot and humid climates that promote their survival. By pre-identifying vegetative areas, Dan’s Pest Control will be better able to understand your property layout, and ensure that no stone goes unturned.


Mosquitos were some of the first insects to roam this planet. According to scientists, they have been around for 100 million years, making them incredibly evolved and difficult to contain. And yet—not all mosquitoes are created equal. There are approximately 3,500 different mosquito species in the world today.

In recent years, mosquitoes have become associated with carrying West Nile Virus, yellow fever, malaria and Dengue fever. These cases are comparatively limited in the U.S. today, but that is because of the continual care and treatment conducted by pest control companies around the country.


● Only female mosquitoes bite humans. In order to develop her eggs, the female mosquito seeks the protein in the blood of a human host. Talk about real-life vampires!
● Mosquitos are born into water. For 10 days, these buzzing insects feed on organic matter in the water and cannot hatch without developing into pupae.
● Scientists still do not know whether mosquitoes are attracted to certain blood types. Past studies have shown that the insects gravitate to Type O blood, but the finding remains unconfirmed.


When spending any time outdoors, it’s important to protect yourself from mosquitoes. Here are some facts to keep in mind when enjoying those summer days:
● West Nile Virus remains a threat, specifically in the summer when mosquitoes flourish in hotter temperatures.
● Be aware of which repellent you choose. DEET is a topical product that wards off mosquitoes, yet how much of this ingredient remains in each repellent bottle can range from 4 to 100 percent.
● In the United States, there are reports of 1,500 cases of malaria every year.
