Mosquitoes are not just annoying; they carry various diseases that can endanger you, your family and even pets. It is critical that you recognize environmental features that attract these aggressive pests during the warm season in order to remain in control of your space.
While most know the dangers of leaving standing water available to these insects, most do not realize that the Asian Tiger Mosquito, one of the most common species in Virginia, can also breed in discarded containers and tree-holes and rarely rely on stagnant pools.
Typically, the Asian Tiger Mosquito only bites during the day, or in well lit places at night. It is a persistent biter, but will generally only bite people when they are standing still or moving very slowly. They tend to target less noticeable areas like ankles, legs and the undersides of your arms.
