Fox Pest Control’s Virginia Beach Mosquito Exterminator Service

Summer comes each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood. Not only do these bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. Because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals. Through Malaria, Zika and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Virginia Beach mosquito problem and exterminate them quickly.

Signs of a Mosquito Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Virginia Beach. 

Sightings

One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.

Bites

Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

What You Need to Know About Mosquitoes

  • They’re attracted to the smell of our blood and the carbon dioxide we exhale. Essentially, we’re all walking mosquito magnets.  
  • They transmit many diseases, including
  • West Nile virus– an infectious disease whose symptoms include fever, skin rash, body aches, and swollen lymph glands
  • Zika virus– an RNA virus that causes a rash, itching all over, muscle pain, red eyes, joint pain, fever, and a headache
  • Malaria- a disease caused by a parasite that invades red blood cells and brings on fever, chills, sweating, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, and sometimes jaundice

Helpful Mosquito Prevention Tips:

  • Avoid wearing perfumes or colognes.
  • Wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors or near water.
  • Avoid early evening activities
  • Eliminate standing water: 
    • Swimming Pools
    • Wheelbarrows
    • Bird Baths
    • Drainage Pipes
    • Gardening Buckets

Mosquito Control FAQ

Do all mosquitoes bite?

Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes around in Virginia Beach, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.

Where do mosquitoes lay their eggs?

Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.

When is the best time to avoid mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds.(Or you could call Fox Pest Control in Virginia Beach to help you get rid of mosquitoes.)

Why are mosquito bites itchy?

When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans.

Are mosquitoes dangerous?

Yes they can be. Even in Virginia Beach mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:

  • West Nile virus– an infectious disease whose symptoms include fever, skin rash, body aches, and swollen lymph glands.
  • Zika virus– an RNA virus that causes a rash, itching all over, muscle pain, red eyes, joint pain, fever, and a headache.
  • Malaria- a disease caused by a parasite that invades red blood cells and brings on fever, chills, sweating, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, and sometimes jaundice.

Why Do Mosquitoes Exist?

Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower.

I am very pleased with Fox Pest Control. I have used them for years for pest control and now for mosquito spray over the summer. They are always on time, do a great job and very friendly. Today Aaron ** Came to do my monthly mosquito treatment. Aaron was very respectful and asked me if I had any concerns. Aaron did the treatment and let me know when the dogs could go out. I am very happy with the job Aaron did.

COURTNEY our tech is awesome!! We really appreciate his knowledge and pleasant disposition. We have a newborn and dogs which always raises concern about the chemicals. Courtney was able to explain safety and make us feel more comfortable. He's also a mosquito tech so he was able to explain our options considering we live on a lake. Thank you Courtney and Fox Pest Control for combating all our pest problems!!! We will see you next time!!
