Is it possible to get rid of Mosquitoes for more than a few days? Yes!
Mosquitoes are a part of our summers in Ontario. In a lot of areas they are more than just a nuisance, they can make outdoor living nearly impossible!
Normally, natural predators such as fish, frogs, beetles, dragonflies, water bugs and birds provide some control of mosquito populations because they eat their larvae.
However if there is standing water in hidden places, then there can be a problem
How Mosquitoes Multiply
Mosquitoes grow in still or very slow-moving water. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs on the surface of the water. Typically, they lay between 100 and 400 eggs at one time.
The eggs hatch in 1 or 2 days into larvae, which look like small worms. The life cycle from egg to adult can take less than 10 days if the temperature is right. The ideal temperature is between 22° and 27°C. Conditions in Ontario tend to be like that most of the summer.
Only female mosquitoes feed on animal or human blood. They need blood in order to produce eggs
In Canada, West Nile virus is a health concern. However, for most Canadians, the risk of getting this illness or serious health effects is very low.
That said, allergic reactions are a serious concern for many people. In most of us bites will appear as small itchy spots that disappear fairly quickly. In some people, the bites become significantly larger (ie bigger than a quarter). This may be one of the symptoms of a more severe allergic reaction that is sometimes referred to as “skeeter syndrome” which can require medical treatment.
Sometimes the reaction is very severe and can result in anaphylaxis, a rare, life-threatening condition that results in swelling in the throat and wheezing; it requires immediate medical attention. While these reactions sometimes occur in adults, they are more prominent in infants and young children.
Sometimes symptoms can be much worse.
