Why are they considered to be pests?

Mosquitoes have been and continue to be very efficient vectors of many devastating diseases worldwide. Fortunately the malaria carrying anopheline mosquitoes are only occasionally found in India and are generally restricted to the far north and south. However there are several very serious diseases known to be transmitted by mosquitoes in India, including Ross river virus, Dengue virus, Barmah Forest virus, Murray Valley encephalitis and dog heart worm. People, pets and livestock can also suffer irritating reactions from the injection of saliva from the mosquitoes bite.

What can home owners do to control them?

Prevention of breeding sites around the home is the best way for home owners to reduce mosquito numbers. Ensure that gutters are not blocked and drain water from pot saucers etc. or anywhere else it has accumulated. Wear loose fitting clothing; long sleeves and long pants if you are outside around dawn or dusk. Personal insect repellents may also be useful. Avoid lingering around areas where mosquitoes are present.

Mossie Facts

Mosquitoes are insects belonging to the order Dipteral (two wing). There are about 270 species in India and the characteristic blood sucking bite of adult females gives them significant pest status. Adults are often in fairly close proximity to their breeding sites but winds can disperse them over several kilometres. They are very adept at exploiting permanent or temporary pools of water around our homes, laying their eggs in rainwater tanks, roof guttering, plant pot saucers and old tyres etc.
