Mosquitoes are among the deadliest insects in the world, and there are up to 200 different species of these pesky little bugs in the United States. Mosquitoes spread various deadly diseases. This is why being able to spot an infestation quickly is important so that you can take steps to mitigate it. The following are some obvious signs of a full-blown mosquito infestation.

Standing Water

Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water and moist soils. Each female can have hundreds of eggs at once. This means if you leave standing water around your yard, you might be dealing with an infestation very soon. Some mosquitoes may even lay eggs in moist soil which will hatch as soon as the soil becomes flooded.

Mosquitoes in Your Home

If you have a mosquito infestation, you will notice them flying around your home. Mosquitoes are more active at night as this is when they do most of their hunting for food. However, if your home is infested with mosquitoes, you will find them during evening hours or even during the day.

Even if you don’t see them, you will often hear a constant buzzing sound. Like most flying insects, mosquitoes make an annoying buzzing sound when they fly. You will hear this high-pitched noise when they’re nearby. If you’re constantly hearing this sound, then there’s a chance you have an infestation to deal with.

Seeing Mosquitoes in Shaded Areas

Mosquitoes enjoy staying in shaded areas. So if a part of your property is shaded or dimmed, you are likely to find mosquitoes there in large numbers if you have an infestation. This is why people that live near a heavily wooded area have to pay attention and have plans for mosquito mitigation.
