The average cost of hiring an exterminator for mosquito control is between $350 and $500 per season. Properties larger than ¼ to ½-acre will be more expensive to treat, as well as properties found to have a severe mosquito infestation. There’s no reason for homeowners to resign themselves to living with a severe mosquito infestation. Try some natural remedies, but if they don’t work, don’t hesitate to call a pest control specialist. Those who are concerned about chemical insecticide use can always ask if the exterminator offers natural control methods.

There are over 3,000 species of mosquitoes, but most of them have the same physical characteristics and follow the same basic life cycle. Mosquitoes are small winged insects made up of three main segments: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. Each specimen has a pair of wings, six thin legs, two antennae, and a proboscis, used to inject saliva into their victims and feed.
Adult mosquitoes are most active during dawn and dusk. They usually stick to shady areas, although some species can also head out to feed in direct sun. They’re attracted by both body heat and carbon dioxide, both of which are emitted not just by people but by all animals. While mosquitoes often prefer to attack humans, they can attack your pets.
