Mosquitoes (Order Diptera, Family Culicidae) are some of the most adaptable and successful insects on Earth and are found in some extraordinary places. Virtually any natural or man-made collection of water can support mosquito production. They’ve been discovered in mines nearly a mile below the surface, and on mountain peaks at 14,000 feet, and if you know where to look, there is a good possibility that there are mosquitoes breeding in your own backyard. Not every species of mosquito causes problems for people, but many have profoundly negative effects. Mosquitoes can be distinguished easily from other flies by the fact that they have both a long, piercing proboscis and scales on the veins of their wings. Approximately 176 species of mosquitoes are found in the United States, with more than 3,000 species known throughout the world. In the United States, only a few of these species are important as carriers of disease, but many more are important nuisance species that dramatically affect peoples’ quality of life.
While all mosquitoes need standing water to reproduce, different mosquito species are found in different habitats. Some mosquitoes are considered “floodwater” species that breed in temporary water habitats, while others are considered “permanent water” mosquitoes and breed in water sources that remain for long periods of time. Other species have evolved so specifically that they will only lay their eggs in natural or artificial containers.No matter what their preferred breeding habitat, all mosquitoes undergo the same four-stage life cycle: egg, larva, pupa, and adult, with the larval and pupal stages always being aquatic.
If you suspect you may have an Asian Tiger Mosquito problem, there are things you can do to get rid of the problem.
1. Check Your Property
The Asian Tiger Mosquito does not fly far (only about 300 feet) from its breeding habitat. It is a very opportunistic feeder. If they are biting you, it’s likely that their breeding habitat is close by.Find and clear up all of the possible breeding sites you can identify on your own property.
Look for even the smallest amounts of standing water. Asian Tiger Mosquitoes will breed in the little amount of water in the saucers under potted plants or in the water that remains in a corrugated drainpipe even days after a rain event. Asian Tiger Mosquitoes can breed in a number of places in your yard.
2. Use mosquito repellent products.
Pestman mosquito repellent essential oil is the first plant essential oil mosquito repellent product that achieves mosquito repellent effect through natural volatilization in the world. It is made of a variety of plant essential oils evenly mixed in a specific proportion, mainly lemon essential oil, osmanthus essential oil, peppermint essential oil and so on.
It emits a pleasant and fragrant smell. This smell will interfere with the mosquito’s olfactory system, making it impossible for mosquitoes to find humans. Some mosquitoes will find an exit and fly out of the room. Mosquitoes that cannot find an exit and stay in the room will also be affected by it. Starved to death due to lack of food and water. In addition to the pleasant smell, the amount is small each time, the natural volatilization effect is good, and it is also very safe for people. It is suitable for repelling mosquitoes in various indoor environments.
The method of use is very simple. Leave the bottle open and place the bottle on the ground at the innermost corner of the room. Put a bottle in each room (10-30 square meters), so that the essential oil can diffuse throughout the room. If the room is large, you need to increase the number of bottles as appropriate. Do not open doors and windows frequently in rooms where essential oils are placed. Because 1-2 ml of essential oils are volatilized every day, if you open doors and windows frequently, the essential oils will drift to other rooms or outdoors. If the concentration of essential oils indoors does not reach a certain concentration, it will not have a good mosquito repellent effect. If you need to open the window for ventilation, it is recommended to open the window for no more than 2 hours a day.
