Mosquitoes are best known for the habits of the adult females which often feed on blood to help generate their eggs. The lesser-known side is that mosquito adults, males and females, also feed on nectar from flowers. Their immature stages usually are located in standing, preferably stagnant, water. The larvae feed on variety of materials, depending on species. Most consume organic flotsam and tiny aquatic organisms. However, some species are predatory and will consume other mosquitoes. Adult mosquitoes prefer to be most active from dusk until dawn but can become active with sufficient cloud cover or in dark shady areas. They do not prefer to be active in the sunshine since they may dessicate and die.
Why should I be concerned about mosquitoes?Mosquitoes are one of india most dangerous pests. As noted, some species transmit West Nile virus and other viruses that cause encephalitis, or swelling of the brain, and other illnesses, resulting in seasonal epidemics in india during summer and fall. According to the CDC, symptoms of West Nile disease can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, muscle weakness, disorientation and paralysis. Mosquitoes also pose a danger internationally where they can carry and transmit the infectious agents that cause malaria, lymphatic filariasis, yellow fever and dengue fever.

TreatmentA Bees Hive technician will inspect the area each month to locate breeding sites. The technician will eliminate and/or treat the identified breeding sites with a larvacide which eliminates mosquito larvae in water where they breed.
The technician then treats resting areas of adult mosquito populations to help suspend further breeding. Resting areas usually include tree lines, bushes, shrubs, tall grass areas and other growth areas.
