General Info
  • Mosquitoes are attracted to your breath (exhaled CO2) perspiration, and body heat
  • Body odours also attract mosquitoes, and since everyone is different, some people seem to be more attractive than others
  • Only female mosquitoes have the mouthparts necessary to pierce skin and remove blood
Where They Breed
  • Mosquitoes need standing water to breed and can be found near stagnant ponds, lakes, or other backyard pools of water
  • Some mosquitoes breed in containers that collect water such as old tires, cans, flower pots, and bird baths
What They Want From You
  • Mosquitoes need a blood meal so that they can produce offspring – they will look to you or your pets for that blood meal
Tips For Limiting Entry and Avoiding Future Problems
  • Remove standing water from around your backyard and home
  • Stay indoors during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active
  • Wear pants and long sleeve shirts when you know mosquitoes are nearby
