What Attracts Mosquitoes to Your Yard?
Mosquitoes are prevalent in East Lake because of the warm weather and frequent rains. So finding some mosquitoes in the area is to be expected. But there are certain situations that will attract more mosquitoes than normal to your yard. These include:
- Standing Water – Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, and any source of untreated water can be a risk. Pools and filled containers are common spots, but clogged gutters, puddles, and dog bowls are also potential breeding grounds. Females lay up to 100 eggs at a time, so providing space to breed allows a mosquito population to multiply quickly.
- Long Grass and Bushes – During the day, mosquitoes rest in shady spots like those found within untrimmed grass and bushes. Keeping lawns mowed and bushes trimmed can eliminate these hiding spots.
- Yard Debris – Discarded leaves and branches offer both a place for mosquitoes to hide as well as a potential location for puddles and breeding. Either way, yard debris should be collected and disposed of regularly.
Removing these features from your yard can help deter mosquitoes, but may not be enough. Sometimes, these areas are not as clear to the naked eye. For example, yards that have poor drainage may not have any clear examples of standing water, but may puddle enough to attract mosquitoes. Clogged gutters can also pool water, increasing mosquito populations. Other times, efforts in your own yard may be hampered by neighboring properties that attract mosquitoes.
If you genuinely want to have comprehensive mosquito control, you will need to rely on a professional that has the tools and experience to get rid of mosquitoes in East Lake fast.
Our Approach to Mosquito Control
When it comes to mosquito control, we use a variety of solutions to limit the population and keep biting pests from coming to a property. Our exterminators start by inspecting your home or landscape, looking for those areas where mosquitoes hide and breed. These trained professionals are extremely knowledgeable about mosquitos and can find places that might otherwise have been missed.
When mosquitoes are found, we apply safe, effective treatments that provide immediate elimination of mosquitoes and their eggs. These applications are used on vegetation and in standing water to exterminate adults, larvae, and eggs. The first treatment will continue to eliminate mosquitoes for several weeks, and subsequent treatments can refresh the pesticides as they fade.
Another option for ongoing pest control is the mosquito mist devices. While traditional mosquito pesticides wear off every few weeks due to weather, these devices are permanent. They are installed around a property and emit a light spray on a timer that repels biting pests from the property. Mosquito mist devices are a new technology, but have already proved to be one of the most effective in fighting mosquitoes.

Scientists aren’t sure if mosquitoes are even necessary. It’s possible mosquitoes may play some role in the environment, providing a source of food for the bats, birds, fish, and frogs you might see in the Brooker Creek Preserve. In our yards though, they are an irritating and even dangerous pest with the potential to spread viruses. They should be eliminated.
