Mosquito Facts & Information

How To Identify & Control Mosquito

Latin Name
Family Culicidae

What do Mosquitoes look like?

Mosquitoes belong to the same group as the true flies, Diptera. As such, they have a single pair of wings. They typically have long, thin legs and a head featuring a prominent proboscis. Mosquito bodies and wings most often are covered in tiny scales. Adult sizes may range from 3 to 9 mm.

How Do You Get Rid of Mosquito?


Mosquito treatment is usually an integrated effort involving source reduction plus the use of chemical control products when needed. Since mosquitoes develop in water, source reduction targets and eliminates water sources favorable for mosquito breeding. While source reduction is the more effective long-term approach to mosquito treatment, the mosquito treatment plan may require using chemical products to supplement source reduction.

Professional Inspection

The mosquito treatment plan begins with your pest management professional conducting a thorough property inspection and identifying the kind of mosquitoes causing problems. Once the inspection and identification is complete, your pest management professional will prepare a mosquito treatment plan that provides recommendations and assistance for both source reduction and necessary chemical product use. Some of the source reduction recommendations might include:

Source Reduction:

Some source reduction recommendations may include:

  • Locate Where They Come From – A diagram of your property is prepared that indicates actual or potential mosquito development sites.
  • Keep Them Out of the House – Providing recommendations to exclude mosquitoes from getting inside the home.
  • Eliminate Hiding Spots – Providing recommendations for vegetation management since many species of mosquitoes rest in vegetation around the home during the day.

Mosquito Treatments

Some chemical product uses that may be needed for mosquito treatment include:

  • Vegetation Treatments – Applying insecticides to vegetation that adult mosquitoes use for sheltered resting sites.
  • Water Treatments – Applying insect growth regulators that prevent mosquito development in their water environments.
  • Prevent Eggs From Hatching – Applying microbial insecticide products that cause mosquito mortality in their water environments.
  • Custom Mosquito Control Solutions.

Since every building or home is different, your OCG technician will design a unique program for your situation.

How did I get mosquitoes?

When mosquitoes find their way inside your home through an open door or window, they usually rest in dark, hidden areas, but will come out at night in search of a blood meal. Homeowners sometimes find mosquitoes under sinks or in closets and laundry rooms.

How Serious Are Mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes can transmit several dangerous illnesses to humans, including Zika virus. This rare disease affects pregnant women and may lead to birth defects. These mosquito-borne diseases may also have serious side effects.


Signs of mosquito activity include the buzzing of the females and their potential bites. People have differing reactions to bites, ranging from mild irritation to intense inflammation and swelling. The presence of standing water can also provide the optimal environment for mosquito reproduction. Nymphs are found in standing water areas such as water bowls for pets, potted plants, bird feeders, and stagnant ponds.


  • If you’ve been bitten by a mosquito, it was a female. Male mosquitoes make do just fine with plants, but females need a blood meal before they can lay eggs
  • Mosquitoes are the world’s deadliest animals
  • Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide, lactic acid and octenol found in our breath and sweat, and they also sense the heat and humidity that surrounds our bodies. They may also have a preference for beer drinkers.
  • Mosquitoes have six legs
  • There are around 3,500 species of mosquitoes, but only a couple hundred feast on human blood.
