How We Treat Them

Mosquitoes appear seasonally, so we will also apply pest control around your house during the warmer months. Some of the treatments we use will deter them in the long run, but they are also meant to kill the mosquitoes and destroy existent nests.

Why Are Mosquitoes Considered Pests?

Mosquitoes are seen as pests because they are bloodbourne disease vectors. Not only are their bites irritating, but they can also transmit disease from one person to another. They are known for transmitting diseases such as yellow fever, malaria, dengue fever, and the Zika virus. Even though the local council implements programs to manage mosquitoes, they are still a big problem.

Species in Townsville

Townsville has various species of mosquitoes. The following are most likely to infest people’s homes and yards:

  • Aedes Aegypti: They feed during the day, but prefer hiding in the dark and are vectors for chikungunya and dengue fever.
  • Aedes Notoscriptus: They are very common during the day and are carriers for the Ross River fever.
  • Culex Quinquefasciatus: Mostly active during the day, and they often breed in drains, artificial containers, and ponds.
  • Aedes Palmarum: Mostly active during the day, and prefer fallen palm fronds to breed in.

Common Signs of a Mosquito Infestation

Usually, when you see more than one mosquito flying around, especially during the day, you may be dealing with an infestation. If you notice frequent activity, our professionals at Pro Pest Control Townsville can solve the issue.

How Do You Know You Have a Mosquito Problem?

A problem will often be associated with the following signs:

  • Buzzing sounds at all times, especially during the night
  • Mosquito bite marks all over your skin
  • They are biting through clothes
  • Day mosquito activity

Treatment Tips and Advice

Mosquitoes are troublesome to deal with, but they can still be prevented with a couple of useful tips. Here is what you’ll need to know:

  • Get Bug Screens

Most insects will try to get in your home when you open the windows to ventilate. To prevent them from sneaking in, you should get insect screens.

  • Get Rid of Stagnant Water

They typically breed in stagnant water. If you have kiddie pools or buckets of water in your garden, you might want to empty them when not used.

  • Start Planting

They are naturally repelled by strong scents such as citronella. Plant them in your garden, and ruffle them each time you are planning a yard event.

  • Wear Light Colours

They are typically nocturnal, which is why they are attracted to dark clothing. So, you may want to switch that black tank top with a white one.

  • Use Mosquito Repellent

These days, you can easily buy insect repellent from the drug store. These products will release smells that are disturbing to mosquitoes, so they will not come in. You may buy room repellent or the type that you apply to your skin.

  • Get Cedar Oil

Cedar has a strong scent that most insects, mosquitoes included, really hate. Make a spray out of cedar oil and water, and spray it around the windows and in the garden.

  • Call Pest Control

If none of the above treatments works and the situation is getting out of hand, you might want to call pest control. The professionals will know exactly what solutions to use to keep mosquitoes at bay.


  1. How Much Does Mosquito Control Cost?

The price for pest control will be affected by the size of the house and how much treatment needs to be used. Prices usually start at $300 per quarter, which should be enough to cover a medium-sized house.

  1. How Long Does It Take to Apply Mosquito Control?

For an average-sized yard, it should not take longer than 10-20 minutes to apply the treatment. After that, you may want to stay away from the treated area for the next 20-30 minutes.

  1. Will the Treatment Wash Off When It Rains?

Treatment should not wash off when it rains, as long as a quality product was used and it was given the time to dry and set. Once it dries, it will stay there. It is recommended that you apply it on a sunny day to allow it to set properly.
