Types of Mosquitoes in Georgia
Not all mosquitoes have the same capacity to annoy and ability to evade the swift swat of the hand. Georgia has several different species of mosquitoes some of which are more prevalent in our area of the state. The Aedes mosquito is the most agile and therefore the biggest nuisance in Georgia. The Aedes mosquito can be identified by their striped back legs. Individuals who are new to Georgia are always surprised by the Aedes species’ quickness. The Culex Mosquito and Anopheles Mosquito are also breeds of mosquitoes that can be found in Georgia. Regardless of the species of mosquito you are dealing with, we are certain, none of them are bringing joy to your life.
Why Reducing Mosquito Populations is Important
Last mosquito season, counties right next to Barrow county reported cases of deadly mosquito transmitted illnesses such as West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Throughout 2018 there were 7 confirmed cases of the West Nile Virus which unfortunately resulted in 1 fatality. The one reported case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis in Georgia also led to loss of life. Mosquito transmitted illnesses tend to increase each year and rarely decrease in numbers. That means this year could be one of the most dangerous mosquito seasons in recent history for Georgia. Mosquitoes are more than a just a nuisance, they are a risk to you, four family, and your pet’s well-being.
Reducing Breeding Environments
Mosquitoes need water in order to breed. Removing standing pools of water on your property is an easy first step to reducing a mosquitoes’ breeding environment. Inspect the areas below your gutters too such as your gutter downspout splash guards. There are locations that most of us never think of being a mosquito breeding area. The areas on or around your property that have heavy foliage or layers of leaves are common areas that retain enough moisture to allow mosquitoes to lay eggs. Those are the areas that need to be treated by a professional mosquito company.
1 Mosquito can create 300!
A single mosquito can lay up to 100 eggs in a single set. On average, a mosquito will produce three sets of eggs within their life-cycle. That means a single mosquito can produce 300 mosquitoes in about 60 days! Contacting a mosquito company when you first see mosquitoes for the season is a great idea. The mosquito population in your immediate vicinity can get out of control very quickly! You may want to encourage your neighbors to get mosquito treatments as well. A female mosquito needs proteins found in blood to reproduce. The female mosquito will travel 150 yards or more to find a food source. That’s 1 and a half football fields! That is why it is great to encourage neighbors to get mosquito treatments as well. Suggesting neighbors to treat their yards for mosquitoes in a direct would be pretty uncomfortable. However, simply mentioning to neighbors during casual conversation that you had your property treated for mosquitoes is a great way to prompt them to start thinking about mosquito treatment. You may also consider mentioning the positive impact you have had from mosquito treatments on popular neighborhood apps like Nextdoor or Facebook. When you and your neighbors have mosquito treatments done, it will reduce your risks of contracting mosquito spread illnesses.
