Mosquitos

Everyone knows how annoying – and painful – mosquitoes can be. Somehow, no matter how many you manage to swat, there always seem to be some that manage to get through to give you a nasty, itchy bite or two.

Here are some facts that you might want to know about these nasty little insects:

  • They can develop from eggs to adults in just six to ten days.

  • They are found close to still water, where their larvae feed and develop.

  • They seem to be attracted to bright colours.

  • Mosquitoes will normally bite you at dawn or dusk – or if you’re unlucky, both. That’s when their internal clocks tell them it's feeding time.

Signs of Mosquitos

  • Mosquitoes often make that all-too-familiar high pitched whine.

     

  • Bites are an obvious giveaway, ranging from mildly irritating to intensely inflamed with swelling. Only the female mosquito bites humans, the males will feed off nectar and other sweet things.

     

  • The adults are attracted to standing water including water butts, water trays from house plants and water bowls, where they lay their eggs.

     

  • You might spot them walking upside down on ceilings and glass surfaces.

     

  • Mosquitoes travel a long way so if there’s standing water within a mile of your home it may be the source of your problems.

     

  • Mosquitoes might be attracted to your lawn or shrubbery if it is well watered.
