Mosquitoes hate cold weather. How often have you witnessed a mosquito flying around when frost or snow is on the ground? Once spring rolls in, however, mosquitoes come out of hiding, eager to begin feasting on blood from as many unsuspecting victims as possible. Mosquitoes are relentlessly finding victims, ruining any hope of outdoor fun when they’re near. To combat a mosquito problem, spray for the pest at the most pristine times.
When is the Best Time to Spray for Mosquitoes
The best time of year to spray for mosquitoes is right before mosquito season begins. His allows the pesticides to more efficiently attack larvae and rid adult mosquitoes when they come out. Preventing a problem before it starts is much easier than treating it after.
Mosquitoes cannot function at temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. They’re lethargic at 60 degrees F. When temperatures are between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit regularly, mosquitoes come out of hiding. This generally occurs sometime in March or April and can last until mid-October here in Alabama. During late fall, mosquitoes begin to lay eggs that hatch when temperatures again reach their ideal comfort level.
Spray at the Right Time of Day
With a mosquito spraying system, homeowners can always spray for the pest when it is most active, which happens to be when they feed, at dusk and dawn. Professional mosquito control makes it much more practical to spray for mosquitoes when doing so will help relieve infestations.
