Mosquito
Control


Canada is home to 82 different mosquito species coast to coast, with high notoriety in the province that's home to the national capital. The Canadian climate, especially throughout the summer, paired with a very short maturity stage often means that we spend a significant amount of time in the warm months swatting at these aerial aggravations.


About Mosquitos

General Information

Mosquitoes are small, flying insects that are attracted to humans and animals. One way to identify a mosquito is by its long, thin body. Mosquitoes also have a proboscis, which is a long, thin tube used for sucking blood. Mosquitoes are usually black or brown, but some species can be green or yellow.

Mosquitoes eat a variety of things, including nectar, fruit juices, and blood. Female mosquitoes need blood to lay eggs. Male mosquitoes do not bite humans or animals because only the female mosquitoes have a proboscis. To get rid of mosquitoes, check out our mosquito services at Insight Pest Solutions!

Mosquitoes can live in a variety of different places, including:

  • Bogs
  • Marshes
  • Swamps
  • Lakes
  • Ponds
  • Rivers
  • Streams
  • Rainwater that collects in puddles or containers
  • Irrigation ditches
Are Mosquitos Dangerous?

Mosquitoes can cause a variety of health problems, including malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, and the West Nile virus. Mosquitoes can also transmit other diseases, such as the Zika virus, yellow fever, and chikungunya. Eliminate mosquitoes from your property with professional pest control services for peace of mind and a comfortable afternoon outdoors.

Get Rid of Mosquitoes

You can protect yourself from mosquitoes to a small extent by wearing long sleeves, pants, and socks. Hide your skin and stay indoors if possible when mosquitoes are around. Use a mosquito net to block them from entering your home or getting close to you while you are sleeping. However, these things don’t make mosquitoes go away, and it sure takes away from a nice evening out in your yard. The problem is even worse if you have mosquitoes in house.

Even if you have done all you can in regards to prevention and mosquito removal, these pests often seem impossible to get rid of on your own. If you have a yard or house mosquito problem and you need mosquito treatment, do not waste your time trying to figure it out by yourself! Whether you try using a mosquito sprayer, mosquito fogging, or mosquito repellant, it isn’t going to do much for your pest problem long term. The key is to treat the root of the issue, and this is where the professionals at Insight Pest Control come in. We know how to treat mosquitoes and we can help ensure your backyard is bite-free this summer!

Do you use harmful chemicals? 

The main synthetic product we use to treat for mosquitoes contains Pyrethrin, which is a natural extract from the Chrysanthemum flower. Around sensitive areas such as gardens, lakes and ponds we use an all-natural 100% garlic extract to ensure we respect and maintain the environment! 

Is this safe for my children and pets to be around? 

We recommend keeping the family and any pets inside while our technician is treating, and for around 1-hour after the service is completed. This ensures that you and your loved ones are safe before, during and after the spray! 

What qualifications do the applicators have?

Our technicians obtain a license through the Ministry of Environment before going through an extensive training process. During training, technicians learn how to perform our service in an effective, safe and efficient manner!

Mosquito Control
Insight Pest Solutions

Here is how the professionals at insight will get rid of your mosquito problem. We will treat your yard with a product called Dragnet, which is an all-natural insecticide used to control the reproduction of mosquitoes, ticks, and other pest insects. Our product is 100% natural. Dragnet is a concentrated extract from the Chysanthemum flower, and it is perfectly safe for exposure to humans ... but not mosquitoes!

Brushes, shrubs, low-hanging trees, and other foliage will be sprayed and will act as a contract kill for roughly 30 days. We do not treat the lawn as it is not a common place for mosquitoes to congregate, as long as the lawn is well maintained. Nor do we treat flower beds and flowering bushed in order to avoid interfering with bees.

The Life Cycle Of A Mosquito

The length of a mosquito's development process depends greatly on species and climate, ranging from four days to as long as one month.

Egg

Mosquito eggs can survive up to 8 months of drying out and even in the winter months in some cases.


Larvae

Larvae go through 3 stages of molting only after they are submerged in water.

Pupa

Pupae stay near the surface of the water to breath, and in a few days, they shead their skin and emerge as al adult.


Adult Mosquitoes

Adult mosquitos feed on nectar, but the females feed on blood in order to reproduce. Therefore, it is when a female sucks blood that diseases can be transmitted.

How to Avoid Mosquitoes

To avoid creating a comfortable environment for mosquiteos, limit putting water features in your backyard, such as fountains and birdbaths. When water pools on old trees, catch basins, barrels, vases, or any other water source other than a pool, dump it out. Limiting the standing water on your property will also limit the number of mosquitoes that will stick around.
