Mosquito Pest Control Services

Mosquitoes are a nuisance in Arizona, and they can pose a health risk if an infestation is left unchecked. While there are many species of mosquitoes across the world, only five distinct species have been identified in Arizona: Culex tarsalis, Aedes albopictus, Aedes vexans, and Ochlerotatus dorsalis.

Culex tarsalis, known as the common house mosquito, is a widespread species in Arizona and can be found across the state. They typically have dark brown bodies with white markings on their wings and legs. It’s important to note that Culex tarsalis can carry diseases such as West Nile virus, encephalitis, and equine encephalomyelitis. They usually feed on birds and other animals and are attracted to decaying organic matter such as standing water or garbage.

Aedes albopictus is commonly referred to as the Asian tiger mosquito in Arizona due to its distinctive black-and-white striped pattern on its body. It’s an aggressive species that can transmit disease and it feeds on humans as well as other animals. They like to lay their eggs in stagnant water which makes them a common pest around pools, fountains, bird baths, and outdoor pet dishes.

Aedes vexans is another species found in Arizona that is commonly referred to as the marsh mosquito due to its preference for wet and humid environments. It has a brown body with white markings and is capable of carrying diseases such as West Nile virus and encephalitis. They usually feed on birds but can also bite humans, so it’s important to be aware of them if you live near a marsh or wetland area.

Ochlerotatus dorsalis is commonly referred to as the eastern treehole mosquito because it prefers to lay its eggs in natural tree holes. They are usually dark brown in color with white markings and like the other mosquitos discussed, can transmit diseases such as encephalitis, West Nile virus, and equine encephalomyelitis.

By understanding these common species found in Arizona we can better protect our families from the dangers associated with them while also reducing their presence around our homes. We recommend removing any standing water sources, such as buckets, birdbaths, and old tires, to reduce the potential for infestations. It is also important to keep your yard free of clutter which can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. If you suspect you have an infestation on your property, contact us for an assessment and treatment plan. Taking the proper precautions can help keep your family safe from these annoying pests.
