What Are Mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are a parasitic insect related to flies and gnats. Contrary to popular belief, they do not "eat" blood. Both male and female mosquitoes feed very similar to other insects - on nectar and plant juices. It's why mosquitoes are so often found outside, in trees or near flowers.
But when it comes to laying eggs, female mosquitoes drink human and animal blood. Human blood is rich in proteins and amino acids that help mosquito eggs thrive, so they feed often in order to nourish their young and maintain their health.
Mosquitoes have long back legs and a prominent proboscis (long nose) that they can use to both pierce the skin and use as a straw to suck up blood. Female mosquitoes can sense corban dioxide, warmth, and sweat, all of which they use to find you. Once they've fed, they leave their eggs in standing water and then seek out new hosts for new eggs.

How Do I Get Rid of Mosquitoes?
There are some techniques that homeowners can do on their own to stop mosquitoes in Jacksonville. The most important is to eliminate any areas of standing water on your yard. These are places that gather water in the rain, allowing the water to sit uninterrupted.
Examples include unused fountains, leftover buckets, or old tires left outside. But sometimes the standing water may be more difficult to find. You'll want to keep an eye out for:
- Clogged gutters
- Lawns with very poor drainage
- Plastic decks that may not be draining properly.
Some stagnant water is more obvious than others. If you can eliminate standing water, you can decrease the number of mosquitoes that live on your property.

Why Get Rid of Mosquitoes?
Of all biting pests, mosquitoes are also one of the most dangerous. They are one of the few parasitic pests also capable of spreading disease to humans. If they bite someone that is ill, and then bite someone else, they can give the illness to the new host. They are responsible for many serious illnesses, including:
- Zika Virus
- West Nile Disease
Scientists are also studying if mosquitoes may be able to spread coronavirus (COVID-19), though this is unclear at the moment.
Beyond their bites and diseases, female mosquitoes also create a buzzing noise that can interrupt sleep.
Overall, these biting pests are a frequent challenge for those that have them on their property, which is why mosquito control is so important. In the Jacksonville area, we have a long mosquito season due to warm weather, rain, moisture, and a lot of greenery. Only with an exterminator can you feel confident that you can get rid of mosquitoes and enjoy your yard and home once again.
