HAVE YOU NOTICED ANY OF THESE?

1 . Buzzing at night

Mosquitoes often make that annoying high pitched buzzing sound, that can keep you awake at night. There’s nothing worse than tossing and turning all night, anticipating awful itchy bites all over.

 

 

2 . Bites

Mosquito bites are an obvious giveaway that you’ve got unwanted guests. From mildly irritating to intense reactions with swelling. It’s actually only female mosquitoes that bite humans, the male mosquitoes feed off sweet things like nectar.

 

3 . Larvae in still water

Adult Mosquitoes are attracted to still standing water including water trays from house plants and water bowls, ponds, or drains and this is where mosquitoes choose to they lay their eggs.
