Mosquito Control in Southwest Florida



With summer already upon us, that means we have now entered on of our most famous seasons, Rainy Season. With the increase of daily rainfall, this means there will be a massive volume of standing water all throughout Southwest Florida and the surrounding areas. These are ideal mosquito breeding areas as they lay their eggs in standing water to hatch and grow!

So how bad can mosquitoes be? After all they are awfully small. In contrary, mosquitoes are one of North America’s most dangerous pests. Some species have been known to transmit West Nile, Zika, and Chikungunya just to name a few. These transmissions result in seasonal outbreaks in North America during out wetter months of summer and fall. This is why our mosquito control services in Southwest Florida target these dangerous and pesky pests so that they don’t target you!

All our mosquito control treatments in Southwest Florida begin with a visit from one of our highly trained and experienced pest control technicians. They will evaluate and assess your yard to both locate and identify different species of mosquitoes as well as different places that they like to breed in.

These areas are anywhere that can have standing and/or stagnant water. These can be clogged up gutters, water bowls for your pets that were left out, birdbaths, and even planters. Your average mosquito will lay around 100 eggs in a very small area. This means that over the period of a couple weeks, they can lay up to 3,000 blood sucking eggs!


While you can do your very best to minimize standing and stagnant water around your property, you have next to zero control over what your fellow neighbors do. This means that you can eliminate all the standing water on your property, just to have a mosquito infestation move in because of your neighbors not doing their due diligence. This is why it is very important to have an effective mosquito control plan in Southwest Florida by All “U” Need Pest Control that will fit you and your family’s needs.


The name “mosquito” actually comes from a Spanish word that translates to “little fly”. With mosquitoes, there are a staggering 3,000 different species across the globe, and almost 200 of those are found right here in North America.

Mosquitoes are incredibly common pests, and being so common, people still believe that the reasons mosquitoes will bite humans and animals is because they need to feed on blood; surprisingly, this is actually not true! Mosquitoes surprisingly feed on nectar, very similar to bees. Only the females will suck blood to help with the development of their eggs before they are laid. Male mosquitos do not even feed on blood, at all!
