Mosquito Control & Treatment

Defeat summer's biggest buzzkill with Western®.

Identifying Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes generally range in size from 1/8 to 3/4 inch, and there are 176 species in the U.S. Mosquitoes can be dark gray, brown or black in color and have slender bodies and legs. The adult female consumes blood through her long proboscis in order to produce eggs.

Mosquitoes leave irritating bites, but they are more than just a nuisance. In fact, mosquitoes are one of the world's deadliest pests. They can spread dangerous diseases such as West Nile virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, dengue fever, malaria, yellow fever, and pet heartworms.

How to Prevent Mosquitoes

Moisture is the largest attractant for mosquitoes, so eliminating any stagnant water on your property will help prevent your mosquito population from booming. In fact, it only takes a thimble-full of water for them to breed, and each female can lay up to 3,000 eggs in her lifetime. Make sure to clean your gutters frequently, avoid overgrown landscaping, and wear skin insect repellent when you spend time outdoors. And, of course, mosquito nets and insect screens will keep them out of your home.
