When You Need Mosquito Control Services, Trust Smash Pest Control

It’s easy to think of mosquitoes as small, nuisance pests that crash backyard barbecues and pool parties. In reality, they’re one of the most dangerous insects in the world. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have singled out this minuscule bloodsucker as the “world’s deadliest animal” because of its ability to spread life-threatening diseases at alarming rates.

How To Get Rid of Mosquitoes

After getting a few itchy bites, your first thought might be to head to a nearby store to stock up on so-called mosquito repellents like lamps, candles, and sprays. Or maybe you’ve decided to scour the internet for “mosquito control services near me.” But, instead of throwing your money at lackluster gimmick products or overwhelming yourself with a long list of online search results, you could just reach out to the team at Smash Pest Control.

When Are Mosquitoes Most Active in Middle Tennessee?

Mosquitoes thrive in warm climates. They breed faster and in higher numbers as temperatures go up. Since the weather in Nashville is rather mild year-round, our area is like a heavenly retreat for these pesky bugs.

You’ll likely see the most activity between April and September as mosquito season really kicks into high gear.

This is also the time of year when we’re trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. The combination of more mosquitoes and more humans increases the chances of spreading diseases, but we can work together with homeowners to deliver effective mosquito management – so you don’t have to barricade yourself indoors.

Do Mosquitoes Die Off When Mosquito Season Ends?

Mosquitoes don’t hibernate in the way we may be accustomed to. They’re cold-blooded critters and they do go through periods of inactivity called diapause if the weather gets too cold. However, they’re more likely to venture indoors to find shelter in basements and crawl spaces to wait out the fall and winter.

Some mosquito species even lay their eggs in areas that can withstand winter conditions, where the eggs then remain dormant until warmer temperatures trigger their development.

Long story short: If you have a mosquito problem, don’t try to wait the issue out. These bugs are far more resilient and adaptable than they get credit for.

How Long Do Mosquitoes Live?

There are more than 3,500 species of mosquitoes worldwide. As you can imagine, lifespan varies greatly from species to species as you go from one location to another. With the right environmental conditions and depending on the species, female mosquitoes endemic to Middle Tennessee can survive for several months, while male mosquitoes have a much shorter lifespan of one to two weeks.

What Diseases Do Mosquitoes Transmit?

Mosquitoes have been known vectors of these diseases:

  • West Nile Virus
  • Zika Virus
  • Encephalitis
  • Malaria
  • Dengue Fever
  • Yellow Fever
  • Chikungunya

Mosquitoes are nefarious creatures. When mosquitoes feed, they inject you with their saliva to prevent your blood from clotting and cutting off their meal midway. Their saliva also temporarily numbs the area so that you don’t detect their presence and go swatting away.

If a mosquito has previously fed on an infected host, pathogens will be present in the saliva that is then transmitted into your bloodstream. Multiply this feeding method by a few thousand, and you could have a health crisis on your hands.
