Mosquito Control in Fairfax, VA with ExtermPRO
Fairfax has a great environment for mosquitoes. Local temperatures and humidity imitate the more tropical environments that mosquitoes thrive in, and this has attracted several species of these biting pests to the area, often in large numbers. Their populations can make spending any time outside in the summertime feel like a risk. Not only do you have to worry about bites, but a large number of mosquitoes will also increase your family’s risk of mosquito-borne illnesses.

Mosquito Control Solutions from ExtermPRO
Our treatment for mosquitoes at ExtermPRO begins with our in depth understanding of local mosquito populations. Our team understands where mosquitoes are likely to breed and which sources of standing water may be a hotspot for them. We also know where mosquitoes may be hiding and what areas they are attracted to when feeding.
This makes it possible for us to apply targeted mosquito treatments specifically in the areas where mosquitoes are most attracted to. We use a range of mosquito treatments in all of these different areas, treating:
- Standing Water
- Other Mosquito Hiding Spots
The majority of treatments remove adult mosquitoes with a solution that kills on contact for immediate relief from mosquitoes. We can also use other options such as larvicides and growth inhibitors to control mosquito breeding if you have water around your home where mosquitoes are laying eggs.
All of these treatments are long lasting and will result in significant drop in mosquito numbers for approximately two months. With our bi-monthly mosquito control in Fairfax, we will use regular treatments to keep mosquito populations low all summer long.
We can also share our knowledge with you to provide additional methods for keeping mosquitoes away, such as removing trouble spots of standing water where mosquitoes may breed and performing light yard maintenance to limit resting places.
Types of Mosquitoes in Fairfax
One of the best reasons for using professional mosquito control to limit mosquitoes in Fairfax is because of the wide variety of mosquitoes we have locally. There are several different mosquito species that thrive here, all of which have different habitats, breeding behaviors, and bite at different times.
The various mosquito species are also known to carry different viruses, making the best way to be fully protected from mosquito-borne illness to get rid of mosquitoes in CITy entirely. Local mosquito species include:
- Asian Tiger Mosquitoes – This is the mosquito that most often bites in the daytime. Their preferred breeding ground is in containers of standing water such as bird fountains, dog bowls, puddles, and other areas of water that go undisturbed for more than a week. They are aggressive biters, but will try to remain unnoticed and most of their bites will be around your ankles or legs. Asian tiger mosquitoes can transmit West Nile virus.
- Aedes Aegypti Mosquitoes – Also called the yellow fever mosquito, these mosquitoes in Northern Virginia can spread West Nile virus, Dengue fever, and heartworm. This mosquito has adapted to breeding in containers. Their preferred host is birds, but they will also readily feed on humans. They are most active just after sunrise and just before sunset and will fly into homes in search of food.
- Culex Mosquitoes – The culex genus includes a large number of mosquito species, called the common house mosquito. These species will breed in any water available and are drawn to ponds, floodplains, and marshes as well as containers. Culex mosquitoes are also active at dawn and dusk, and have been known to transmit West Nile virus.
Between these and the other species that make up the approximately 30 mosquitoes that use humans as hosts in Fairfax, mosquito bites can be an around the clock challenge you may experience both inside and outside your home.
