How to Identify a Mosquito Infestation
It is not difficult to detect a mosquito infestation in your recreational, residential or commercial space. First, a mosquito infestation is characterized by the presence of larvae or pupae in stagnant water.
You can establish the presence of mosquito larvae in some stagnant water by dipping a cup into it and then check if the cup has some larvae. The size of a mosquito larva is approximately that of a fingernail and the larvae normally squiggle around.
Secondly, you are most likely to hear some of them buzzing around your premises. If the area is lit, you will see them flying here and there. When you remain still, some of them will be buzzing around you and may even feel their slightly painful/itching bites as they suck blood from you.
Common Mosquito Habitats
As mentioned earlier, water is an essential condition for mosquitoes to survive and reproduce. One of the most common mosquito habitats is an area with stagnant water. Anything that holds water for a long time may be an ideal home to these pests.
Areas and items where stagnant water is mostly found include ponds, blocked rain gutters, rubbish, debris, fountain, old tires, swimming pools, boats that aren’t covered, downspouts, un-circulated lakes, swamps, marshes and more.
Mosquitoes are likely to be found in high moisture surfaces that vertical or inverted and don’t experience wind. These areas include patio spaces, beneath the eaves of a building, shade structures, decks and doorways. Therefore, all these areas ought to be given extra attention during mosquito treatment or prevention.
Mosquito Control & Prevention
The best way to prevent mosquito infestation is to deny them a conducive breeding and surviving condition; always make sure that no water remains standing in or near your home or commercial area for four days or longer. Target all the aforementioned common habitats for the pests.

However, if you have done all that and the pest infestation still persists, it is vital to call a professional mosquito exterminator.
