How Do I Get Rid of Mosquitoes in My Basement?

Bothered by mosquitoes in the basement?

 

If you’re fighting mosquitoes inside your home, we understand how frustrating it can be. Mosquitoes love being near sources of water, so basements make a great place for them to hang out. Considering North Carolina is susceptible to hurricanes during the active storm season, as well as regular rainfall throughout the year, having mosquitoes live rent free in your house is not as rare as you might think.


Our local pest control heroes can help determine the best course of treatment for your unique situation, so call us today at 888-MRCLEGG for your FREE inspection. Plus, speak to a member of our team to learn more about mosquito management options in general. Looking for more info? Read on!

How Can I Tell I Have a Mosquito Infestation?


First and foremost, if you’re getting bit! There are also several factors that make your home an appealing place for mosquitoes to spend their time, including having standing water, dampness, or moisture control problems.


Mosquitoes require water to reproduce – it’s where the female lays her eggs. So, eliminating any leaks or puddles in or near your basement is crucial in telling those mosquitoes to make their home elsewhere. Do you have leaky pipes in your crawl space? Moisture under your home? Does water enter your basement during storms? Even having plants in stands or trays that hold water can provide a place for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Look for small larvae that wiggle around; if you see any, dump out the water. Fixing these problems will help prevent a mosquito infestation in the future.

How Can I Prevent a Mosquito Infestation?


If you have barrels around your home to collect water, make sure that these have tightly sealed lids. If your basement is prone to dampness or flooding, invest in a sump pump (a container that collects water to help manage runoff water) or contact your plumber to find a solution that prevents water from entering your home. Our team can help recommend and install these. Be sure to check under sinks, any sprinkler or irrigation systems, and crawl spaces for leaks or moisture as well.


You should also check the screens on your windows and doors to make sure they are tightly sealed and there are no holes. If you do have standing water on your property, remove any unnecessary vegetation around the area and keep it clear of vegetation to help keep mosquitoes at bay.


How Does Clegg’s Treat a Mosquito Problem?
