Effective Mosquito Control Methods

Mosquito Control Adelaide

Sick of those pesky mosquitoes buzzing around? We feel your pain. Getting bitten while enjoying your backyard is no fun. As seasoned pros with over 10 years experience, we know how to control mosquitoes effectively.

Mosquitoes are more than just annoying. They can spread dangerous diseases like Ross River fever, Barmah Forest virus, and Murray Valley encephalitis. They lay eggs in standing water sources around your property, with a single mosquito capable of laying up to 300 eggs at a time. This means the mosquito population can multiply quickly if breeding sites aren’t removed. Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn when cooler temperatures draw them out to feed.

At Eco Pest Control Adelaide, our experts will treat your yard with environmentally-friendly, EPA-registered products that safely target both mosquito larvae and adults. We offer long-lasting residual sprays, barrier treatments, and mosquito misting systems.

Sleep tight knowing mosquitoes won’t be biting at night, with our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

What are Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes are small flying insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Only female mosquitoes bite, needing blood to develop their eggs. There are over 3,000 species of mosquitoes worldwide, with over 300 occurring in Australia. The most common varieties in Adelaide are the Southern Saltmarsh mosquito and Common Banded mosquito. These pests are most active at dawn and dusk when temperatures are cooler. They are attracted to dark clothing, carbon dioxide, and certain scents.

Mosquito bites can cause irritation, swelling, and itching. But more concerning are the dangerous diseases they may transmit such as Ross River fever, Barmah Forest virus, Malaria, Dengue fever, and Zika virus. Protecting your family from mosquito-borne illnesses is a top priority.

Mosquitoes go through four distinct life stages:

  • Egg – Female mosquitoes lay eggs in clusters on the surface of stagnant water sources like ponds and buckets. Hundreds of eggs can be laid at a time.
  • Larva – Eggs hatch into larvae within 1-3 days. The larvae, also called wigglers, live in the water and feed on microorganisms and organic matter. This stage lasts 5-14 days.
  • Pupa – Larvae molt into pupae that live near the water surface. This non-feeding stage lasts 1-4 days.
  • Adult – The adult mosquito emerges from the pupal casing. Females seek a blood meal for egg development while males feed on nectar. Adults live around 2-4 weeks.

Did You Know About Their Internal Clock?

Mosquitoes have an inside body clock. This inner timepiece tells the mosquito when to rest, eat, and mate. The clock uses signals like light and dark to set the beat. When days grow short and nights grow long, this alerts mosquitoes to prepare to mate and lay eggs. The clock also connects to triggers like food smells, heat, and carbon dioxide from breath. These cues say it’s time to bite and feed

  • Hearing high-pitched buzzing near ears
  • Mosquitoes breeding in standing water sources
