The prime mosquito season in most parts of Australia is during the warmer months, with infestations more likely after a bout of heavy rain. In the tropical regions, mosquitoes are a problem all year, although numbers are a lot higher in the warm, wet season.
It’s easy to work out if you have a mosquito infestation – there are lots of pests and lots of bites! For early indications of potential problems, you can have some control of mosquitoes by checking any pools or stagnant water around your house or yard.
If there are wrigglers in the water, you’ve got a problem brewing. So, remove or empty any water that might be gathering in garden pots or containers, and in top-watering plants such as bromeliads, spraying some cooking oil on top of the water repels mosquitoes so they don’t lay eggs in it.
Exterminating pests is all part of our best outdoor mosquito control services carried out by Acacia Pest Control.
