Rain & Humidity Are a Perfect Combination for Mosquito Breeding

Author: Mosquito Squad of Victoria

We’re sure everyone is well aware of the amount of rain we have received not just here in Victoria, but in the entire state of Texas. What many people may not realize is that with all this rainfall, the mosquito population is certain to surge. Simple math would lead one to deduce that with the mosquito population exploding, the potential for disease carrying mosquitoes also increases. Standing water is absolutely terrible when it comes to mosquito control in Victoria, Texas. Let Mosquito Squad of Victoria turn your yard into the exception to the rule. Don’t allow mosquitoes to keep you from enjoying your yard during these warm, pleasant months.

With both West Nile Virus and the newcomer chikungunya being spread by local mosquitoes, mosquito control is of the utmost importance. Due to the extreme amount of rain and high humidity, the conditions are absolutely perfect for the potential spread of both West Nile and chikungunya. Standing water is the absolute worst. Standing water in a ditch could breed millions of mosquitoes. If that same ditch is near your home, don’t forget that most disease carrying mosquitoes maintain an area of approximately 300 yards from where they originally hatch. Thus, if you have a ditch full of standing water near or in your yard, you, your family, and your pets are more than likely going to be targeted by the mosquitoes for their first blood meal.

Mosquitoes will feed on any blood meal they can get. While people may be aware of the dangers of mosquito diseases passed on to humans, they often overlook the dangers faced by their pets from mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are capable of passing on heartworms to your pets. If not vaccinated against heartworms the impact on your pets can be lethal. We at Mosquito Squad of Victoria believe that you shouldn’t have to worry about getting infected, having your pet get infected, or even having to worry about being bitten by a mosquito in your own yard. Let us help you take your yard back!
