A look at mosquito season in the Mile High City

Mosquitoes like warm weather. They do not like scorching weather or chilly weather. These insects enjoy temperatures between 50 and 95 degrees and require at least 42% humidity to be comfortable. Here in Denver, in the last thirty years, there have been fewer and fewer days that fall within these parameters. Research suggests that this is changing. Last year was a doozy due to generally wetter weather and more moderate temperatures. As we head into spring and summer, we will start to get a picture of what this year's mosquito season will look like. Keep a close eye on your local weather expert for days that fall within optimal mosquito activity parameters. If you want peace about mosquitoes, consider investing in a professional mosquito treatment plan.

The threat of mosquitoes

Most mosquito bites are typically not dangerous, but last year, there was a deadly West Nile virus outbreak in our state of Colorado. In fact, cases of West Nile virus were at the highest they had been in over twenty years. Does that mean this spring and summer will be bad? It’s entirely possible, especially if we have another temperate wet spring and summer.

Mosquito prevention tips for yards

More moisture equals more mosquitoes. These insects breed inside pools of stagnant water. If you would like to find fewer mosquitoes on your property this spring and summer, address potential breeding grounds and landing sites. Here are some simple yard-maintenance tips that will help you do this.

  • Eliminate sources of standing water in your yard. Children's toys and playground equipment often gather rainwater. Pour out collections you find and address factors that might lead to moisture build-up in the future.
  • Ornate pools and bird baths can host mosquito eggs. Consider investing in ornate pools and bird baths that self-circulate. Even a small flow of water can disturb the production of mosquito eggs.
  • Cut your grass regularly, remove weeds, and trim thick vegetation. Dense vegetation creates humid hiding places and weeds are a good source of food for mosquitoes.
  • Check your gutters for debris and make sure they are properly channeling water away from your home. We recommend cleaning your gutters at least once a year.

Combine these prevention strategies with professional mosquito treatment for the best results.
