- One female mosquito can lay up to 200 eggs at a time.
- Mosquitoes can transmit serious diseases such as malaria, yellow fever and West Nile virus.
Mosquito control can be complicated because the bug has the ability to adapt to different and changing conditions. There are methods that you can take to prevent infestations from occurring as well as eliminating one once it has already formed. Take special care to empty out or throw away anything outside that can hold standing water, such as buckets, tins, tires, etc. You can also use traps such as bug zappers or outdoor sprays. If the infestation seems to be out of control, seek the help of your local exterminator in order to deal with the problem effectively.
