Mosquitoes are hands-down one of the most infuriating pest problems you can face on your Honolulu property, and the reason for this is that mosquito bites hurt, and mosquitoes won’t leave you alone if you are outside while they are active. Mosquitoes need blood to survive, and you have plenty of it. Mosquitoes track hosts using a sophisticated sense of smell and can follow you anywhere you go in your yard. Mosquitoes can track you and will relentlessly pursue you as long as you are outside. Mosquito bites can potentially harm your health to make matters worse. Mosquito control in Honolulu is critical if you want to ensure the health and safety of your and your family.

Mosquito bites hurt and won’t stop biting you as long as they are on your property. Thankfully, Able Pest Management professionals know how to help you manage mosquito infestations. Call us today because we know how to get rid of mosquitoes. 

Mosquito Or Not? How To Identify Them At A Glance

Since mosquito bites can be so painful, it’s good to identify mosquitoes effectively. Here are some facts about mosquitoes that can help you identify them quickly and effectively and enhance your mosquito control efforts:

  • Mosquitoes need water to breed. Seeing what looks like little worms swimming in slow-moving water is likely an indication of mosquitoes.
  • Mosquitoes have wings and are quite good at flying, being agile in the air, and capable of instantaneously changing directions.
  • Mosquitoes have a long straw-like proboscis on their heads they use to pierce the skin and consume blood. You can often spot this from a distance.

These are some of the ways that you can identify mosquitoes. Once you identify a mosquito infestation, it’s critical to treat them. That’s where Able Pest Management comes in. Our skilled professionals pride themselves on safety and effectively eliminating pest infestations of all kinds, including mosquitoes. Contact us today for help.

Mosquito Dangers: Itchy Bites, Allergic Reactions And Diseases

Mosquito bites are the single biggest problem associated with mosquitoes. Mosquito bites sting at first and then itch later, and multiple bites can make you miserable. Although the bites themselves are irritating, mosquitos are also notorious for something else: the transmission of diseases. If a mosquito feeds on a host infected with a dangerous pathogen, it can spread it to every other host it subsequently feeds on. 

Mosquitoes utilize a needle-like appendage to pierce the skin and siphon blood. As they feed, mosquitoes inject saliva into the bite area to keep the blood from thickening. If they are infected with pathogens, mosquitoes can inject the pathogen into their hosts; this is why they are considered one of the most prolific disease-spreading insects on the planet.

Mosquito Prevention: Eco-Friendly And Effective Tips

One of the best ways to combat mosquitoes is to prevent them in the first place. Here are some tips for decreasing your chances of having to deal with mosquitoes on your property:

  • Eliminate standing water: Mosquitoes need water to reproduce, but they don’t need much. They can reproduce in any place where they can find standing water. Eliminate standing water sources to eliminate easy ways for mosquitoes to breed.
  • Trim bushes and hedges: Overgrown bushes and hedges make great mosquito harborage areas. Keeping these trimmed reduces the ability of mosquitoes to use them to shelter.
  • Avoid dawn and dusk: Mosquitoes are heavily active during dawn and dusk. Staying inside at these times can reduce your chances of mosquito bites considerably.
  • Inspect frequently: Inspecting your property often can help you identify mosquito infestations before they grow large, making treatment easier.

Finally, contact Able Pest Management immediately when you identify a mosquito or any other pest infestation. We can quickly and safely help you eliminate it using the latest science-based treatments.
