Invasive Aedes Mosquitoes

Orange County neighborhoods are being bombarded by the invasive Aedes mosquitoes. Learn more about these pests now.

They Feed on Humans

Aedes mosquitos can make your yard less enjoyable by negatively impacting your quality of life. These aggressive, day-biting mosquitoes prefer to feed on humans.

Unlike other species, they bite multiple times and leave large bumps and welts.

Because they bite more frequently, they increase the risk of spreading diseases such as:

  • Chikungunya
  • Yellow fever
  • Dengue
  • Zika

They are Container Breeders

These pesky mosquitoes need very little water to reproduce and are container breeders.

During breeding, Aedes mosquitos will lay eggs along the side of a container. These eggs can remain in containers for years and will remain dormant until ideal conditions are met and water is available.

Tips for Controlling Aedes Mosquitoes

  • Wear mosquito repellent to avoid bites (eucalyptus oil, lemon oil, IR3535, Picaridin, or DEET)
  • Toss unneeded containers in the backyard
  • Dump and drain any containers filled with water around your home
  • Check plant containers weekly for water collection and mosquito breeding
