Mosquitoes

There are over 2500 different species of mosquitoes worldwide and over 60 species live in Michigan. Mosquitoes have been around for over 30 million years and have changed little in that time. Mosquitoes found in fossilized materials are identical to those that are alive today. Some species lay their eggs directly on water while others lay eggs in dryer areas and hatch only after flooding, sometimes as much as five years later. A single female Anopheles mosquito can lay over 300 eggs at a time. Only female mosquitoes bite; males feed only on plant nectar. Mosquitoes are capable of transmitting a number of dangerous diseases and parasites including Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, Malaria and Heartworm. The Shoreline Solution: Many factors must be considered when planning a mosquito control program. Target species, weather forecasts, size of treatment area, presence of standing water, density of foliage, etc. are just a few items that come in to play. Generally speaking, an application of carefully selected materials combined with a prescribed reduction of habitat will result in a good control program. In addition to monthly service we can provide single mosquito treatments for special events, such as outdoor weddings, graduation parties, etc. (Image © Mrfiza-Dreamstime.com)
