Eliminate Mosquito Woes With Revolutionary Mosquito Buckets

In the US, there are around 200 types of mosquitoes. They live in various locations and have different behaviors and feeding preferences. The reach of mosquitoes extends far beyond their mere presence as pesky pests. Mosquitoes are also carriers and transmitters of diseases, harming millions of humans and animals each year.

Orkin helps people in Hattiesburg and McComb, Mississippi, remove mosquitoes from their yards and homes using special buckets. Today, we’ll guide you through these revolutionary products, and explain what makes them so effective.

The Life Cycle of Mosquitoes

While the habits and environments of mosquitoes vary, they universally undergo a quartet of life stages.

The mosquito life cycle begins when a female lays eggs, often in stagnant or slow-moving water. These eggs hatch into larvae, which molt several times as they grow, eventually transforming into pupae. This pupal stage is a time of metamorphosis during which the larva changes into an adult mosquito.

Adult mosquitoes come out and can fly. Female mosquitoes look for blood to feed their eggs, continuing the life cycle. Knowing the life cycle of mosquitoes is important for controlling them. They can reduce their growth and numbers by targeting different stages.

The Dangers of Mosquitoes

A mosquito’s buzz can disrupt a peaceful evening outdoors or a good night’s sleep inside. Their bites can cause itchy, red welts that may result in secondary skin infections from scratching.

On an extreme level, mosquitoes are far more than a mere nuisance. These pests spread diseases like West Nile and Zika viruses, dengue fever, and malaria, putting public health at risk. These diseases can lead to serious health implications and even death.

The spread of these illnesses by mosquitoes turns them into one of the deadliest animals worldwide, underscoring the importance of efficient control and prevention methods in our living spaces.

Mosquito buckets are a pest management solution designed to control mosquito populations in residential areas. These new black buckets are waterproof and firmly attached to the ground, so they stay put no matter the weather.

The concept behind mosquito buckets is simple yet incredibly effective. Female mosquitoes naturally seek out stagnant water to lay their eggs. Mosquito buckets take advantage of this behavior by providing a conducive environment for mosquitoes to breed. Each bucket contains a small amount of water and a lure infused with a fungus specifically targeting mosquitoes.

When a female mosquito enters the bucket to lay her eggs, she comes into contact with the fungal lure. This fungus attaches to her legs, ultimately leading to her demise within one to two weeks. The mosquito spreads the fungus to other water sources when it flies away from the bucket. This helps to control breeding grounds.

The fungus in mosquito buckets is non-toxic, making it safe for humans, pets, and the environment. Regular sprays only kill mosquitoes upon contact. The fungal spores, however, continue to spread. They are able to kill adult mosquitoes and larvae in various water sources.
