MUD DAUBER

What is a Mud dauber?

Mud dauber, AKA Mud Wasp, is the name given to a few different families of wasps. They are long and thin

with really narrow waists. Their name comes from the nests the females build. The nests are tubular or

cylinder shaped with mud holding them together.

What is the Mud dauber’s habits?

They aren’t aggressive like Yellow-jackets or Hornets but can become defensive when threatened. It is very

rare to get stung by a Mud dauber. They usually occupy the same areas every year. You can control their

habitat near your home by knocking their nests off. One very positive thing about the Mud dauber is that

they prey on spiders. The females paralyze the spiders and bring them back to their nests to feed their

young. Since so many people fear spiders, maybe people should consider keeping the Mud daubers around.

Do we treat for those? Absolutely give us a call Beachside Termite and Pest Control 321-750-4100

MOSQUITOES

Mosquitoes. No one likes these pests. They are annoying at the least, and deadly at their worst. They can carry disease from far away countries. When a person is bitten by an infected mosquito and becomes a carrier of that disease, and then travels to another country and another mosquito bites that person, that new mosquito now carries the disease from that other country. This is the unfortunate scenario of disease spreading mosquitoes. Thanks to the advancement of transportation people can now travel throughout the world and unknowingly are spreading these diseases.

Some of the deadliest diseases brought to us by mosquitoes are: Yellow Fever, West Nile Virus, Malaria, Encephalitis (disease of the brain) and the Zika Virus . There are over 3000 different species of mosquitoes around the world. The females suck blood from animals and humans to get protein for her eggs. When she bites, she injects saliva with a blood thinner and numbing substance. This causes the itching we often experience. She then draws the blood out.

In humid and warmer areas, mosquitoes flourish year-round. If they aren’t feeding on us, they will eventually. We need to prevent the mosquitoes from living long enough to bite us. Experts tell us to empty water around our home because the females lay their eggs there. They have four stages of the life cycle and until they become adults, they live in water. They like to feed at dawn and dusk. Avoid being outdoors during these times and wear repellent if you do venture outside.

It is true that certain people are more attractive to mosquitoes than others. Body odor and the carbon dioxide we emit when breathing are what these insects are attracted to. Being attractive isn’t always a good thing!
