Affordable and secure mosquito control services in Melbourne performed by local experts
Mosquitoes are little devils, capable of ruining every late-night barbeque and family gathering. These pesky little bugs can often be found in shaded spots and in areas with standing water. They are annoying, their bites can cause unpleasant reactions in varying levels, not to mention the diseases they might be carrying. And if you find that you have an infestation, they may even start pestering you during the day, and at home, too!
Signs you have a mosquito infestation
You hear a constant buzzing sound
Mosquitoes make a very specific sound when they fly around, namely a high-pitched buzzing noise. It’s not uncommon to hear it once or twice when you’re out and about at night, but if you’re hearing it constantly around your property, then that is a sure sign that you have an infestation and it might be time to call in a professional mosquito exterminator.
You notice bites appearing
Yes, there are many bugs that can bite you, especially during the summer. However, a mosquito bite is pretty recognisable. Male mosquitoes are rarely to blame, it’s most often the females that bite people since they need blood to lay their eggs. So, if you notice you’re getting itchy red bumps all over your arms and legs, even when you’re at home, we have bad news - a mosquito infestation may be the reason and the females are probably laying eggs all around.
You’re scratching yourself at night
You might not always notice it immediately when you get bitten by a mosquito. It could take a while for you to see the red bump, but you’ll be sure to notice the itching sensation that comes with it. If you find that you’re often scratching yourself during the night, the cause might be your new roommates coming out for a feast. It may be time for indoor mosquito control.
You see mosquitoes during the day or in the evening
These pesky insects are known for being nocturnal. When a mosquito infestation occurs, a lot of them might come out during the day in search of food, prey and space. If you see a mosquito out and about around your home in the daytime, then we have bad news for you - it’s an infestation.
There is standing water near your home
Mosquitoes can often be found in areas with standing water, such as lakes, pools and fountains. The reason is that the females like laying their eggs in water, where they have the optimal conditions for hatching. The presence of standing water on your property might not mean there is an infestation, but it can certainly attract them to your home.
