A Few Facts about Mosquitoes
- Only Females Feed on Blood
Did you know that the mosquitoes that bite us and cause us pain and itching are all females?! Indeed, only female mosquitoes feed on blood and the male mosquitoes only feed on pollen. They even have a different proboscis (which is the thing with which they sting), especially designed for better sucking the pollen out of the flowers. The females need blood for laying the eggs, so beware, wherever there are hungry mosquito females, there are mosquito eggs.
- They Find Us Through Our Breath
Mosquitoes can detect carbon dioxide from 75 feet away; it is how they find their blood source. And because all mammals make carbon dioxide when they breathe, they pretty much have one of the most efficient meal detection systems out there.
- They Carry Deadly Diseases
It is a well-known fact that mosquitoes carry the malaria virus, which is potentially deadly to humans. But did you know that the spread of West Nile Virus across the United States in 2004 was carried on by mosquitos, not birds, as it was initially thought. One more reason to have mosquito control and lawn care around your property!
- They Need Water to Breed
Mosquito females, the ones that actually do the nasty biting, cannot breed and lay their eggs unless they have some water to do it in. The bad news is that they can do with very little water, such as a small puddle on your curb or the birdbath that you have in your backyard. Not to mention the gutters and sewers.
- We’re Allergic to Their Spit
We’re not allergic to mosquitoes, we’re allergic to their spit. That’s why it itches when they bite us and why some people have a bad reaction to it.
Interesting stuff, isn’t it? Aside from mosquito control, our lawn care Raleigh NC company will perform lawn treatments, disease and insect control, aeration and overseeding, shrub and tree care and even organic lawn treatments.
