Georgia's Mosquito Problem
In Georgia, mosquitoes are a common nuisance. They begin appearing as early as March, and if the weather is warm enough, their presence is felt almost year-round. Their activity peaks from May through October. With around 63 mosquito species in Georgia, the most common are the Ades albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito) and the Culex quinquefasciatus (Southern house mosquito). Not only are these insects bothersome, but they also carry diseases like West Nile, encephalitis, yellow fever virus, and dengue fever. Additionally, some mosquitoes can transmit heartworm to pets like dogs and cats.
Preventive Measures & Solutions
Ensuring that your surroundings, especially near homes, are free from potential breeding grounds is essential. Overgrown vegetation near homes should be controlled, and weeds in surrounding lots should be trimmed.
These can be applied to shade trees, shrubbery, tall grass, flower beds, and shaded areas around buildings where mosquitoes usually congregate. This controls the adult mosquitoes migrating from nearby areas.
This is a commonly used method by pest management professionals. Fogging is most effective when timed with the peak activity of the target mosquito species.
