Where do Bergen County Mosquitoes Go in Winter?


Summer is gone, and so are the mosquitoes. Where did they go? Cold weather is responsible for their disappearance, but there is more to the story.

It's just a matter of time before mosquitoes disappear, but while they're alive, they produce a fail-safe. During the warmer months, mosquitoes will deposit their eggs throughout the months leading up to their die-off. This is their insurance policy, allowing their numbers to rise from the ashes in the following spring and summer. Although mosquitoes are difficult to keep away, there are techniques to regain control of your property. When the temperature reaches 50 degrees Fahrenheit, mosquitoes will start to emerge from their dormancy. What can you do, then, to avoid mosquitoes when they return? There are a few things you should do.

Why Bergen County mosquito control should be considered

The first step in controlling mosquitoes is to understand where they frequent during the spring, summer, and fall. A mosquito's ideal breeding habitat is a body of still water. It would be wise to either consider draining that water source or treating the water to make it unsuitable for mosquito breeding. Mosquito eggs may endure the cold in this wet environment. When springtime approaches, clean or empty everything in your yard that might hold water, including clogged gutters, fallen leaves, untreated pools and ponds, and even bird feeders.

Yard waste removal is also essential. Mulch, dead leaves, and other yard waste can serve as homes for mosquitoes over the winter and provide shelter during the summer. In addition to improving the appearance of your yard, getting rid of yard waste will help reduce the number of mosquitoes that use your property as a home. A professional mosquito control plan is essential in addition to yard maintenance.
