Where do Jacksonville Mosquitoes Go in Winter?

It’s Not Too Late for Mosquito Control in Jacksonville. Fall Efforts Lower Spring Mosquito Numbers.

Have you ever wondered, “Where do Jacksonville mosquitoes go in winter?” While the “off-season” for mosquitoes in Jacksonville is very short, they do typically take a hiatus for about 126 days a year (depending on the weather that year.) So where do mosquitoes go during those four months, and how do they reappear so rapidly in the spring?

Mosquitoes Don’t Die in Winter

Not all mosquitoes die over winter. Some mosquitoes simply go dormant, hiding in places where they can wait out the cooler months to reemerge as soon as the weather is habitable.

In addition to those “over-wintering” mosquitoes, eggs can survive throughout the winter. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs in areas where the ground is moist. In the spring, when the weather warms, and enough water becomes available to those eggs, they can hatch. With over 300 eggs laid per female mosquito, you can imagine how quickly a mosquito population grows when hot and humid weather arrives in the spring.

How to Prevent Early Spring Mosquitoes

Following the Ts of mosquito control is one of the best things you can do to make sure you’re not providing a hospitable environment for over-wintering mosquitoes or their eggs. Keeping your yard neatly trimmed and debris removed gives them few places to hide. Keeping areas where standing water can collect drained or tipped over, can keep those eggs from ever hatching.

Additionally – we can eliminate those mosquitoes now! Following the mosquito math of Jacksonville mosquito control allows you to see just how quickly one mosquito can become millions.
