Mosquitos Pest Control

Mosquitoes are common flying insects in the family Culicidae that are found around the world. The females of most mosquito species suck blood (hematophagy) from other animals, which has made them the deadliest disease vector known, killing millions of people over thousands of years and continuing to kill millions per year by the spread of infectious diseases – ie malaria and that does NOT occur in Ireland.  Needless to say, mosquito bits are a pain and super itchy so the best mosquito control is to keep them out of the house by use of fly screens. There are many methods used for mosquito control, depending on the situation.

General Information about Mosquitoes

Mosquito is a small insect that has a body covered in tiny scales, a pair of wings and long and thin legs. The size of a mosquito  ranges between 3 and 9 millimeters.

There are more than 3000 species of mosquitoes all over the world but only 18 in Ireland.

Some mosquitoes carry a diseases but not in Ireland. The most common disease spread by mosquitoes is Malaria.

Mosquitos lay their eggs in standing water, they lay up to 100 eggs at a time.

Female mosquitoes are bigger than males. Male mosquitoes don’t feed on blood, but females do.

They do this to nourish their body before egg production.

They are active at night. That’s why homeowners often don’t see the insects.

How Do Mosquitoes Get into Your House

If your property is located near lakes, ponds and water sources with standing water then you may get mosquitoes in the yard.  Mosquitoes can enter your home through an open door or window.

The pests usually hide in dark, humid and hidden areas such as laundry rooms, closets, etc. Mosquitoes can be also found under furniture and sinks.

Mosquito Pest Control Treatment

The mosquito control process consists of several stages. You need to 1) identify the problem, 2) remove the mosquitoes, 3) take preventive measures and 4) do ongoing pest control to avoid the problem in the future.


Initially, pest control professionals will conduct a property inspection and analyse the mosquito problem in detail. The main goal of the inspection is to find out what mosquito species causes a problem and the areas in and around your house where mosquitoes live.


At the next stage, a mosquito control plan is developed. Specialists will recommend treatments to you that will allow you to get rid of mosquitoes and protect your property from insects during the season.

There are different types of mosquito control methods and during the inspection the mosquito exterminator will analyse your unique situation and advise you on the solution that will work best for you.


Prevention of mosquitos in and around your home has to be a part of the mosquito pest control program.

It’s also necessary to eliminate standing water sources as well as hiding spots that may attract mosquitoes.

Any gaps and cracks in water tanks as well as plumbing issues need to be fixed.

Don’t open windows at night if you don’t have screens. Repair doors and windows if they are broken, letting mosquitos in.

Do you live near a pond and have a mosquito problem? In that case, you also need to get rid of mosquito larvae in the pond.  We can also advise you on how to do that.
