As we gear up for summer, it’s important to remember that it’s also National Mosquito Control Awareness Week (June 16-22, 2024). This annual event, organized by the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA), spotlights the importance of mosquito control in protecting public health and encourages communities to take proactive steps to reduce mosquito breeding sites.


Understanding the Mosquito Menace

Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they carry dangerous diseases that can significantly impact the health of humans and our pets. Mosquitoes thrive in warm and humid environments, making the summer months particularly critical for control efforts. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, where larvae develop into adult mosquitoes. Common breeding sites include ponds, puddles, birdbaths, tires, or any object holding water. 

Understanding the mosquito life cycle is crucial for effective control and prevention. By knowing when and where mosquitoes are most likely to breed, we can take proactive steps to reduce their numbers and minimize their chances of landing on us.

Tips to Prevent Mosquito Bites

Prevention is key when it comes to dealing with mosquitoes. Follow these tips to avoid itchy bites and potential health risks associated with mosquito-borne diseases:

  • Remove mosquito habitats
    • Eliminate standing water in various containers.
    • Empty and change water in bird baths, pools, and potted plant trays weekly.
    • Keep gutters clean.
    • Keep your lawn and plants trimmed.
  • Use structural barriers
    • Install window screens.
    • Seal any cracks or gaps in walls, doors, and windows.
    • Use mosquito nets over beds and outdoor seating areas.
  • Use the right insect repellent and clothing.
    • Use insect repellent with DEET or Picaridin.
    • Wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors, especially during dawn and dusk.
