Mosquitoes are perhaps one of our most annoying pests on Delmarva. Because we are surrounded by so much water, it seems nearly impossible to enjoy time outside without getting eaten up by mosquito bites. Many people don’t realize that female mosquitoes are the only ones who bite. The blood helps support the growth of their eggs. They love to live in areas of standing water, which is why infestations can be the worst near our marsh and pond areas. Adult mosquitoes tend to be most active from dusk until dawn. Sometimes, with sufficient cloud cover, they can also be very active during the day, but you typically will not see them in broad daylight.
Fortunately, you don’t have to surrender your yard to mosquitoes. Critter Getters offers a vector treatment, where we will spray the perimeter of your yard to keep the mosquitoes away. We think you should be able to enjoy your summer evenings, without worrying about swatting and itching.
