When Are Mosquitoes Most Active?

Because some mosquitoes in our area are active only in the daytime and some are more active at dawn and dusk, you will encounter them almost any time you want to be outside. Mosquito control in Evansville is helpful if you enjoy spending time in your yard.

Mosquitoes in Indiana are dormant during the winter months. But when spring comes, they will start to emerge. Some types lay eggs before the weather gets cold; these eggs wait through winter to hatch in the spring and quickly become mating adults. 

The most active time for mosquitoes in our area is in the hotter summer months, though you will likely see them in late March through November.  If mosquitoes are consistently a problem on your property, contact Action Pest Control to rid your yard of mosquitoes.

Five Naturally Effective Ways To Prevent Mosquitoes

Here are five natural ways to repel mosquitoes and prevent their bites:

  1. Keeping your grass cut short and your yard well-maintained can help to rid your yard of mosquitoes.
  2. Using a fan while sitting outside or dining on your patio can help keep mosquitoes away, as they are not strong fliers.
  3. Eliminate areas with standing water on your property. Check gutters, overturned pots, and children's toys that may hold water.
  4. When spending time outdoors, wear loose-fitting long sleeves and pants that are light in color. Also, wear socks and shoes.
