Mosquitoes are commonly found in Bakersfield and Kern County. We see them mostly between the months of March and October. Most recently, we have been finding the Aedes mosquito which has become the most aggressive mosquito to our area. The Aedes mosquito prefers to feed on humans and tends to make their homes near our residences. They can spread diseases such as Zika, dengue, chiung, and yellow fever. They are very small and sometimes can’t be easily spotted. Other common mosquitoes found in Bakersfield and Kern County are the Culex and Anopheles mosquitoes. Culex mosquitoes can be carriers of the West Nile Virus. They tend to feed on birds and other animals rather than humans, but will settle for humans when no other options are around. The Anopheles mosquito was known to spread Malaria before it was eradicated in the United States.
At Wow Pest Control Inc, we are now proud to offer our Mosquito Control Program. We implement a two-step process to cover all of our bases. First, we utilize In2Care traps to maximize our ability to reach several possible breeding sites. These stations interrupt the breeding process by preventing the eggs laid in the traps from developing into adults. The larvae die before having the opportunity to develop into a full functioning, blood sucking, adult. Making these traps even more effective, the Adult mosquitoes that lay their eggs in these traps come in contact with the materials inside and then transfer it to other standing water sites, maximizing their efficiency. These traps are highly effective against the newest breed of mosquitoes found in Bakersfield called Aedes mosquitoes. They can be daytime biters and are the most aggressive toward humans as we are their preferred meal. The second part of our mosquito control service involves treating possible breeding sites throughout your property with general pest control materials as well as an insect growth regulator. Insect growth regulators prevent insects from developing into adults that are capable of reproducing. This dramatically decreases insect populations. We will also make recommendations as to what you can do to prevent activity in and around your home.
