Experts in Mosquito Control Newcastle
All About Mosquito Pest Control
Let’s be honest – nobody likes mosquitos, the 6-legged blood-sucking insects that feed on all kinds of mammals. Mosquitos are known to be transmitters of some of the world’s deadliest diseases, including malaria, dengue virus, Zika, and West Nile virus. Mosquitos also carry specific viruses that are dangerous to animals including dogs, cats, and cows.
Aside from the serious side effects. It is impossible to have people over for dinner if mosquitos are flying around everywhere. It can ruin a family get-together or business meeting. Mosquitos often lay their eggs in moist and swampy areas. But eggs can also be found in:
- Tree holes
- Old tires
- Potted plant trays and saucers
- Plastic covers or tarpaulins
- places as small as bottle caps
There are many methods of control that can be implemented to reduce the number of mosquitoes. Local councils may use larvicides (pesticides that kill the larvae) which prevent mosquitoes from maturing to adults. In areas where there is a disease outbreak fogging may be considered as an option to kill the infected adults. Other methods could include the use of parasites, predators, or pathogens of mosquitoes to assist in extermination.

What Diseases Are Transmitted By Mosquitoes?
Mosquito-borne diseases in Australia include Dengue fever, Australian encephalitis, Ross River (RR) virus disease, and Barmah Forest (BF) virus disease. Dengue is the most important viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes afflicting humans in a world context. Clinical symptoms range from mild fevers to a severe and potentially life-threatening hemorrhagic disease. In Australia, Dengue fever is restricted to Queensland where the major vector Aedes aegypti occurs.
What Time Do Mosquitoes Come Out In Australia?
In New South Wales, most mosquitoes become active at dawn and dusk, and into the evening. When travelling overseas it is important to be aware of the biting patterns of the local mosquitoes which transmit diseases. For instance, the mosquitoes that transmit diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika, will bite 24 hours. They are always a nuisance.
What Is The Best Mosquito Repellent?
Many home-made remedies can be used to prevent mosquitoes from biting. At best, however, their effectiveness is limited. This is because human skin contains natural chemicals that attract mosquitoes. This explains why mosquitos will sometimes go for one person and not another, even in the same area. It also depends on how hungry the mosquito is. If it needs to feed, then it will risk all but the strongest repellant, and these will have chemicals in them that also harm human skin.
