When Is Mosquito Season In Phoenix?

What is your favorite temperature? Some people like to keep their homes a balmy 80 degrees. Others prefer to keep things below 70 degrees. Living here in Phoenix, we are used to hotter temperatures—even so, going outside when it is scorching hot is not comfortable. Mosquitoes feel the same way. They have their own perfect temperature. When conditions are just right here in Phoenix, these pests thrive. We could call this mosquito season, though mosquitoes never really go away. We are going to take some time today to discuss mosquito season and these little biting pests. If you know enough about mosquitoes to know that you don’t want them around your yard, reach out to your Greenway Pest Solutions service team and ask about mosquito control. We would love to offer solutions to address the problems you are having with these pests.

The perfect temperature for mosquitoes in Phoenix

Mosquitoes are a bit picky when it comes to temperature. They start to become active at around 50 degrees. Considering that it rarely drops below 50 degrees in Phoenix, we won’t find much of a reprieve from these pests due to colder weather. Mosquitoes may, however, become less active during periods of extremely hot weather.

On hot days, mosquitoes will seek out shade and moisture under trees, inside bushes, and within gardens. If it is extremely hot and dry, mosquitoes will be less active. In past years, the climate here in Phoenix has been hotter. If this is true this year, there will be fewer days when mosquitoes are active. To be honest, you probably won’t notice the difference. Mosquitoes thrive through most seasons here in Phoenix and will remain a problem if you do not have proper protection.

How mosquitoes breed in Phoenix

Most mosquitoes lay their eggs inside pools of stagnant water. When it rains here in Phoenix, these insects seek out moisture sources like puddles found on playground equipment. They may also lay eggs inside ornate pools, bird baths, and other water-based features around your property. If you live next to a body of water, you are likely to have more trouble with these pests. Let’s take some time to talk about the trouble that comes with mosquitoes and discuss professional options to control an infestation on your property.

Risks associated with mosquitoes in the Phoenix metro

It's important to note that not every mosquito is dangerous. However, these insects can be a nuisance as they have the ability to transmit disease-causing organisms from humans and animals. Different types of mosquitoes carry different types of diseases. For instance, only the Anopheles mosquito carries malaria. Although mosquitoes can be found in Phoenix, widespread malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases like Zika virus, yellow fever, dengue fever, and chikungunya are rare in Arizona. Nevertheless, it's still important to protect yourself from these pesky bugs as they can spread localized mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile virus and different forms of encephalitis.

No one likes having a cookout or spending time outdoors when these pests are invited to the party. For this reason, we offer unmatched mosquito control at Greenway Pest Solutions.

Josh did an amazing job today when he came to our house to spray for pests. Not only did he complete his work without any issues he was very attentive to our pets and called me right away when he noticed that my cat had gotten outside. He ensured that our pets were safe and sound before he went off on his way. He was a great person.
