If you spend time outdoors during the summer it is inevitable that at some time or another a mosquito or in reality a lot of mosquitoes will choose you to “bite” and feed on. Mosquitoes are a species of insect that can drive an outdoor party or event inside quicker than almost any other! At Mitchell Services we don’t want your summer fun to be ruined by these pesky pests so our Virginia experts have compiled some easy tips to help relive the itch and help mosquito bites heal faster! But first, some fun facts about mosquitoes, did you know that it is actually only the females that bite and feed on blood? That’s right, the females require the protein found in the blood to produce their eggs. Males and females feed on the nectar of plants and other sugary liquids as their main food sources. Mosquitoes are most active at dawn, dusk, and on cloudy overcast days because the bright hot sun can cause them to dehydrate and die. During the heat of the day they can be found hiding in tall grasses, bushes, and other areas of thick vegetation. Mosquitoes find their blood donors by detecting body heat and the carbon dioxide that is produced as people and other mammals breathe. In most people the bite from a mosquito causes a red, raised, very itchy and uncomfortable welt on the skin. Listed below are some tips to prevent mosquito bites, along with ways to help ease the pain, itch and discomfort from them.
