Aedes mosquitoes thrive in warm southern california climate
Commonly called “the ankle biters”, Aedes aegypti (the yellow fever mosquito), Aedes albopictus (the Asian tiger mosquito) and Aedes notoscriptus (the Australian Backyard Mosquito) have been detected in Los Angeles & Orange Counties. These mosquitoes are not native to California and can transmit Zika, dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever.
All three invasive Aedes mosquitoes lay their eggs in small amounts of water, as little as a bottle cap full!
Aedes mosquitoes lay an average of 100 eggs per batch. In warm conditions, it takes an egg as little as 5-7 days to reach adulthood.
In dry conditions, the eggs can survive years in and await a water source before resuming development.
Known as “the ankle biters” due to their tendency to bite humans between the ankles and hip area, often multiple times in one feeding.
ADMIRAL PEST CONTROL CAN KEEP MOSQUITOES AWAY FROM YOUR PROPERTY
how does the in2care mosquito trap work?
The In2Care Mosquito Trap targets both the adults and the larvae at the moment they pupate. Adult mosquitoes are lured to the trap and deposit eggs in the water. Inside the trap they sit on the floater gauze and become contaminated with a slow-killing biological fungus and a larvicide. The fungus infection takes a few days to kill the mosquito and can block Dengue virus replication. In the meantime, the infected mosquito will also spread larvicide to breeding sites around the trap. Aedes mosquitoes laying their eggs in multiple sites and will carry the larvicide on their legs and kill larvae in each water body they visit.
