Mosquitoes are a common pest in Houston, but many people don’t know how they breed and spread. That’s why it’s so important to partner with Cypress Creek Pest Control. Our professional team is dedicated to helping homeowners in the area protect their families and pets from the threat of disease-carrying mosquitoes by understanding their lifecycle and taking preventive measures.
Understanding the Mosquito Lifecycle
The lifecycle of a mosquito begins when an adult female lays her eggs in water (or near water) such as ponds, swamps, or damp soil. The eggs then hatch into larvae, which live underwater and feed on microorganisms such as algae. After a few weeks, the larvae develop into pupae, which float at the surface of the water. Finally, after two or three days the adult emerges from its pupal case ready to mate and lay eggs.
Mosquitoes need only a very small amount of standing water for breeding—just half an inch is enough! So even small puddles left behind after rainfall can become breeding grounds for these pesky pests. As such, it’s important that you eliminate any sources of standing water around your property as soon as possible. This will help reduce mosquito activity in your yard and keep your family safe from potential disease-carrying mosquitoes.
