Anyone else have friends that are celebrating the cold weather by saying things like “Thank goodness it’s killing off all the mosquitoes?” Yeah, me too.
The truth is that mosquitoes do not die off in the winter months. They are often simply dormant and as soon as the weather warms back up above 58 degrees, they will be right back at your picnic.
The mosquito season in North Texas is generally from April through October. However, much depends on the duration of winter temperatures and the amount of rain. Heavy rain means more breeding grounds and more mosquitoes. Temperatures consistently above 58 degrees will encourage mosquito activity.
Repelling brings it down to personal responsibility. If you repel, then you can keep them off of you, your family and out of your yard without damaging beneficial insects and the environment. Besides, our repellents work better than the harmful chemicals
Yard sprays by Mosquito Steve lasts ten days to 2 weeks. Misting lasts up to 6 hours. Yard sprays remove the landing, hiding and resting places of the mosquitoes; it forces them into the air and they are not strong flyers. That should send them next door or to an area not protected. NOTHING sprayed on the yard, chemical or natural, keeps mosquitoes from flying in! That is why we need misting. Misting will keep flying insects away.
