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

Many bugs and rodents can carry viruses and harmful diseases.
During mosquito season, we suggest removing standing water from your yard.
Also covering up in long-sleeved shirts and pants, especially when going outside after dusk.
Using repellent with DEET is also important to avoid bites.
Our Fox Pest Pros can easily visit your home and apply monthly treatments throughout the spring and summer.
This will decrease the likelihood of mosquitoes laying eggs and inhabiting your yard.
Give us a call, and we'd be happy to help you.
Because No Bugs is Simply Better.
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.
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.
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 reduce the mosquito population around your home.)
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.
Yes they can be. Even in Virginia Beach mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
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 have been using Fox since last year and have actually been able to use our backyard with getting eat up by mosquitoes. Aaron W. Was good about letting me know he was there and when he was done. Definitely recommend Fox
Fox Pest Control is the best. We have the mosquito spray in addition to the pest control service. They are always professional, responsive, on time and great quality. Aaron W. performed our last service and he was great! Very professional and personable. Did a great job!
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!!
