Xpert Mosquito Control
The simple mosquito while small in stature, can be annoying at best, and deadly at worst. Unlike ticks, fleas, and other insects that are exclusive blood feeders, mosquitoes rely on sugar for energy, obtaining it from plant nectar and juices. Female mosquitoes bite because they need blood to extract all of the proteins and nutrients to produce fertile eggs. This biting process we're all familiar with, is how disease and bacteria is spread.
Generally, mosquitoes need water to complete their life cycle. This can include water backups in gutters, water trapped in the top of planter pots, birdbaths, discarded tires, cans, pool covers, pet water bowls, and any other containers capable of holding moisture.
