Mosquito Source Inspection

Mosquito infestations are serious and can lead to worse issues like contracting dangerous diseases, such as West Nile virus and malaria. Learning how to inspect and pin-point the source of an infestation is critical in being able to address the issue early on to prevent spreading—and avoid the threat to your health. If you’re located near Milwaukee, it’s more likely you might have a problem considering Wisconsin’s increased mosquito population due to humid summers and flooding from melting snow and spring rains.

There are several types of mosquitos to look out for. Culex pipiens L is common in northern states and found in standing water that is polluted; culex quinquefasciatus is common in tropic and subtropic areas and prefers stagnant and foul water for breeding; culex restuans is found more in central and eastern states; aedes aegypti is common in the south and bites in late afternoon or early mornings; and Ae. albopictus is a daytime feeder that reproduces rapidly and transmits more than 30 diseases.

Mosquito Treatment Options

Mosquito treatment depends on the severity of the infestation. Treatment options are determined following a complete inspection of your property by Safeway’s licensed pest specialists. Mosquito control can require a one-time service or recurring treatments over time, and in rare cases of severe infestation, you will need to fix up your property. There are several mosquito treatment options, starting with eliminating breeding sites (removal of standing water) often found in tall grass, weeds and shrubs.


Mosquito treatment often requires insecticide usage. Using a residual insecticide to spray foliage of bushes and shrubs, lower limbs of shade trees, tall grass and other shaded areas will get rid of adult mosquitoes. Foggers and misting system compounds can help coat leaves and foliage more effectively in order to control any serious mosquito infestation. Finally, mosquito repellents are also commonly used for the yard or the skin as an all-natural, non-toxic treatment option.

Mosquito Prevention

Mosquito prevention is a smart option for clients near Milwaukee who have had mosquito problems in the past and are hoping to prevent future infestations. The most common place to start is to eliminate any potential sources of standing water when you can or provide treatment with mosquito larvicide when possible, whether the source is found in puddles, ponds, lakes, toys, bird baths, ditches, old tires, clogged gutters, buckets, flower pots or even poorly maintained pools. Be sure to contact Safeway Pest Management to schedule an inspection ASAP, so we can provide mosquito control and help keep your property pest-free.
