Atlanta Pest Control Experts, Team Pest USA, Talk about What Happens to Mosquitoes in Winter

Atlanta pest control firm, Team Pest USA, discusses what happens to mosquitoes when the temperatures start to fall. These pests are dormant in the winter, but they do not go away.

    NORCROSS, GA, April 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Team Pest USA, a premier Atlanta pest control firm, would like to discuss what happens to mosquitoes in the off-season. Often considered one of the most annoying pests, mosquitoes can also carry nasty diseases with them as well. Thus, many people are relieved for winter as this is when most bugs disappear. Contrary to popular belief,, these pests do not simply die off when cold weather approaches. Like many other warm climate species, mosquitoes take refuge and hibernate during the winter. This is why mosquito problems come as a surprise during the spring and early summer months.

Where Do These Pests Go?
Atlanta pest control firm, Team Pest, explains that having some background knowledge on the mating habits of mosquitoes is helpful. Males die shortly after mating, but the females remain. The latter will lay the eggs in the ground during the fall months. Given that winter conditions are not suitable for the eggs to hatch, the female typically finds a place to settle until warm weather arrives.

Mosquitoes burrow beneath the ground and even in the crevices of buildings or homes. According to Brandon Pelfrey, Owner of the Atlanta pest control business, "This is why it can seem as though mosquitoes come out of nowhere. As soon as the weather is ripe for the eggs to hatch- typically when the temperatures increase and the ground becomes moist - the pests will come out."

For that reason, hiring a commercial pest control in Atlanta is highly recommended. Atlanta pest control companies will spray the perimeters of buildings to eliminate the bugs and keep them from burrowing there in the off-season.
