It’s almost a guarantee that you will see at least a few mosquitoes in the spring and summer months. These flying pests are most obnoxious and dangerous for their bite, which can spread diseases. While contracting a disease from a mosquito bite is rare, these pests can spread West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (or Triple E). If you enjoy any amount of time outdoors, you will appreciate a yard as mosquito-free as possible.
There are 3,500 species of mosquitoes. Around 175 can be found in the United States.
- 1/4 to 1/2”
- Two wings
- Hair-like scales covering their body
- Pale brown to black, some with bright markings
Fun Fact: Mosquitoes don’t have teeth. The “sting” accompanying their bite is caused by a long, pointed mouthpart called a proboscis. It pierces the skin to locate a capillary and then draws blood through one of two tubes. Mosquitoes only draw about 3 milligrams (or a tiny “prick’s worth”) of blood.
Mosquito bites commonly cause severe itching and welts. They can turn any outdoor activity into a challenge. While bug repellants can help reduce their obnoxiousness, a growing number of mosquitoes invading your yard can become a real problem.
