Around 150 mosquitoes commonly live in the United States – a handful of which can be found in Rivanna, VA. Like all mosquitoes, the ones taking over your yard feed on blood and typically leave nasty bites that are swollen and itchy.
Most mosquitoes can spread diseases. Many of the more dangerous illnesses passed by mosquitoes include Zika, Malaria, Dengue and Yellow Fever. Mosquito bites on dogs can cause heartworm. Fortunately, most of Virginia’s mosquitoes aren’t likely to pass on diseases and merely serve up irritating bites. You can’t take that chance as the climate gets warmer, though. It is wise to seek a mosquito treatment for your yard from American Pest’s mosquito control services.
During the day, mosquitoes will largely rest in shaded areas, and they’ll take to the sky at night, seeking out pets or family members for a meal. Mosquitoes love two things – water and animals/humans. As you’re aware, the latter provides a great meal. However, water is often responsible for mosquitoes congregating in your yard. A large part of preventing mosquitoes from arriving in the first place is ensuring that your yard doesn’t present them with their ideal breeding conditions.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, the kind you can find in some ponds, gutters, bird baths, rain collection barrels, and watering cans. Anything that can hold water could potentially be a hotspot. During the hot summer months (especially) in Rivanna, VA, mosquitoes can be found in abundance around stagnant water.
Spraying for mosquitoes is one of the services we provide that denies them these areas. Our mosquito control team will also highlight any water-based hazards in your yard.

What gets rid of mosquitoes? There are a couple of things you can do to try and prevent mosquito issues, but this is very labor-intensive work. Instead, this time-consuming task is best handled by our mosquito exterminator team.
If you want to have a stab at it – here’s what you can do:
Rivanna, VA, is quite warm, so mosquitoes are common here. While some insects can be mistaken for mosquitoes (Daddy Long Legs or Crane Flies, for instance, are known as Long Mosquitoes or Mosquito Hawks), there are typically just three mosquitoes that will require outdoor mosquito control. These include:

However, once American Pest has misted your standing water and vegetation, we’ve interrupted mosquitoes’ breeding cycles. A repeating mosquito pest control treatment once a month throughout the season should ensure that your yard remains mosquito free from April to September.
