Types of Mosquitoes in Phoenix, Arizona

A mosquito is a type of fly. While many other fly species resemble mosquitoes, or even giant mosquitoes, there’s only one kind of mosquito in Arizona. Unlike some beneficial types of insects, mosquitoes are only good for being food for other animals. 

In addition to the red, itchy bumps that may last for days after a bite, mosquitoes can also transmit viruses they pick up from other animals’ blood to people and pets. Mosquitoes can spread malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, Zika virus, West Nile virus, and others.

Why Green Home Pest Control is Your Best Choice for Phoenix Mosquito Control

As with all of the pest control services we provide, our goal is to keep mosquitoes under control at your home or business while still being kind to the environment. To do that, we developed botanical and organically derived pest control solutions that are just as effective in getting rid of mosquitoes as they are safe for our planet.

We’re also dedicated to making sure the best possible technicians are taking care of your mosquito and pest problems. We drug test, background-check, and thoroughly vet potential Green Home Pest Control employees before we consider having them join our team. Each technician must demonstrate a high level of proficiency in pest removal, a level that we make sure they improve upon month over month. Why do we do such extensive vetting? Because we know how important it is for you to know you’re in good hands when we arrive to manage your pest control issues.

How to Reduce Mosquito Populations

The combination of our professional mosquito control service and your own efforts to keep mosquitoes away from your yard is the best approach. Here’s what you can do:

Get rid of breeding sites

Mosquitoes need very little standing water to breed, so you’ll need to closely inspect your property. In addition to the more obvious spots like bird baths or ponds that hold stagnant water, also look for anything that can capture water, such as:

  • Trays under flower pots or planters
  • Outdoor toys
  • Trash or recycling cans with no or ill-fitting lids
  • Buckets or cans
  • Discarded tires
  • Wading pools
  • Clogged gutters
  • Gardening equipment, such as wheelbarrows

If you have a swimming pool, make sure to keep the water properly chlorinated and circulating.

Keep landscaping neat

The fewer places where mosquitoes can hide, the better. Keep your property free of piles of dead foliage and clip tall weeds and grasses. If your landscape includes any thick underbrush, avoid it during the sunrise and sunset hours when mosquitoes can be most active.

Check entry points

There’s nothing more annoying than swatting at mosquitoes that have gotten into your house! To keep them from getting inside, closely inspect screens on doors and windows, and repair even the smallest holes. Also add weather stripping to seal entry points. Prevent mosquitoes from breeding indoors by making sure that any water in vases or under plant pots gets emptied regularly.

How Green Home Pest Control Can Help Get Rid of Mosquitoes

Our four-step mosquito control service kills the mosquitoes you have now and helps prevent new infestations. Here’s how we treat your mosquito problem at every stage of the insect’s life:

  • Inspection: We closely inspect your property for any places that may harbor mosquitoes at both their adult and larval stages. We’ll review our findings with you and recommend measures that can support long-lasting mosquito control.
  • Habitat removal: Wherever we locate standing water—whether it’s in a bird bath or just a small item such as a water bottle cap—we’ll eliminate all that we can.
  • Adult control: One of the most important steps in misting the areas where we know adult mosquitoes rest is to spray the undersides of all leaves and foliage, which is a step many mosquito control services omit but one that makes all the difference. We’ll also treat under patios and decks, in shaded grassy areas, beneath overhangs, and more.
  • Larvicide control: If there are areas where water collection or stagnant water can’t be eliminated, we treat them with larvicides to prevent immature mosquitoes from maturing into adults.

Green Home Termite & Pest Control now also offers the In2Care Mosquito Trap, which attracts and kills both adult and larval Aedes mosquitoes with green ingredients. These innovative traps attract female mosquitoes, which land on a biological agent containing a growth regulator that kills the larvae in the trap and a fungus that kills adults. The female mosquito carries these agents out to other areas of standing water, killing larvae there.

Mosquito Control FAQs

By far, the most effective way to keep the mosquito population from exploding in your yard is to eliminate every source of standing water. That means making sure even a little bit of water isn’t allowed to collect in items on your property. Frequently empty and replace the water in fountains or birdbaths, keep rain gutters cleared out, and check your irrigation system for drips or leaks that let small amounts of water collect beneath them.
To reduce your chances of being bitten, try not to be outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, which is usually around dawn and dusk. If you must be outside during these hours, wearing light, loose-fitting clothes can help, as can using some type of repellent. DEET is one of the most effective mosquito repellents, but it shouldn’t be used on very young children. There are also repellents made especially for clothing, shoes, and camping gear, which are not for use on skin. A good course of action is to use safe, natural repellents, such as:
  • Tea tree oil applied directly to skin
  • A blend of eucalyptus and lemon oils
  • Lavender added to skin cream
You can also limit mosquito bites by having professional mosquito control services. At Green Home Pest Control, we offer you world-class mosquito control solutions that are safe and effective.
It’s understandable that everyone wants a quick, easy solution to mosquito problems. Bug zappers are promoted as effective on mosquitoes, but they’re not. Unlike many other types of insects, mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide we exhale rather than light.  The most effective and long-lasting solution is mosquito control from a professional pest control company. A considerable problem with bug zappers is that they’re indiscriminate—they kill beneficial insects as well as those you don’t want. They may also make your home more attractive to insects, which are drawn by the light.

Choosing plants that are known to repel mosquitoes is a great, natural way to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard. Here are just a few:
  • Citronella: Citronella candles are a popular purchase for those who want to repel mosquitoes, but the citronella plant—a perennial grass— is helpful as well. It has an aroma that masks other scents that attract mosquitoes.
  • Marigolds: These plants contain pyrethrum, which is actually used in commercial insect repellent formulations. It’s an easy-care annual that brightens up any landscape.
  • Citrosa: A hybrid of Chinese Citronella grass and African geraniums, citrosa plants product citronella oil. 
  • Eucalyptus: These giants can grow to 30 feet, and contain natural oils that repel many types of insects, including mosquitoes.
  • Ageratum: The repelling ingredient in ageratum is coumarin, which has an odor mosquitoes will avoid.
  • Wormwood: This perennial has a natural insecticide that can repel mosquitoes.
  • Catnip: Studies have shown that catnip may be even more effective than DEET.
