Why Mosquitos Are So Bad This Year in Southern California

Mosquitos are some of the most annoying insects in existence. If you live in Southern California, you definitely encountered mosquitos a few too many times. Not to mention, these mosquitos carry scary viruses, like the Zika Virus, Dengue, Yellow Fever, and others. As summer is now in full swing, mosquitos are swarming SoCal neighborhoods in full force, and the invasion seems to be worst than ever. 

Experts say that swimming pools can attract 10,000 mosquitos per week. This is because mosquitos love a standing water source. Not only will you want to clear your pool from mosquitos, but you should also check if there is any stagnant water in your home or yard. Puddles, accumulated water due to leakage, or any open source of water will attract and breed mosquitos. 

When the temperature increases, so does the mosquito population, and the invasion of mosquitos won’t slow down for the next few months. The best thing you can do is protect your home from these insects. 

How to Protect Yourself from Mosquitos 

Remove standing water sources. Any open water is vulnerable to mosquitos and will be a breeding ground. Check your home and yard for any accumulated water and remove it. 

Check dark, humid spots in the house. These spots include underneath the sink, inside the closet, in the laundry room, or underneath the furniture. 

Hire a pest control company. A qualified pest and insect control will definitely clear mosquitos in the home. If you’re dealing with a large invasion of mosquitos, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
