Mosquito Control in Phoenix, AZ

Blue Sky Pest Control offers full-service residential mosquito control services in Phoenix and the Phoenix metro valley area. Arizona is home to several types of mosquitos, including daytime and nighttime feeders. Mosquitos can be found year around in Arizona, but are particularly active from February through November.

In addition to their itchy bite, mosquitos are a particular public health concern because some types of mosquitos found in Arizona can carry and transmit diseases, such as West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis and, potentially, Zika Virus. These viruses can cause major illnesses and health issues in humans. Proactively treating for mosquitos can help minimize the threat of these diseases.

Causes

Mosquitos breed year-round in Arizona and can breed in the smallest amount of standing water. Dripping outdoor faucets, bird baths, backyard ponds and neglected pools provide the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos while putting them in close proximity to people.

Mosquitos like to rest in dark, cool areas, such as the eaves of houses or under fallen foliage.

Treatment

Blue Sky uses a scientific approach to mosquito management. Our service technicians inspect and treat areas were mosquitos rest and breed – such as under the eaves of your home or dead foliage gathered in the garden or near the house’s foundation. Blue Sky technicians can also make recommendations for treating and preventing mosquitos from breeding in unavoidable standing water – like bird baths.

Prevention

Maintaining your home and property is one of the best ways to prevent mosquitos. Clear your property of dead foliage, cardboard, pool toys, garbage and any other debris that might offer mosquitos a cool, dark place to rest. Eliminate any standing water and keep pools properly treated to make them an inhospitable breeding ground for mosquitos.

Mosquitos often enter the home through open windows and doors. Keep windows and doors shut whenever possible during the height of mosquito season, especially at dusk and night when many mosquitos are most active. Check all your windows and doors to ensure the proper screens and weather stripping is securely in place and not torn.
