These nasty things are something we Texans are all too familiar with. The bites itch so much! Repellents and the stuff you get at the store don’t really do much at all to stop them. You need a professional. At Ajax Exterminating, we treat exterior walls, around windows and doors, bushes, tree trunks flower beds, and the lawn. We use a liquid and granular professional product that kills them on contact and, unlike fogging, it keeps on killing them. Plus it prevents them from growing into adults. Take back the outdoors, have Ajax kill your mosquito problem.
Signs You May Have a Mosquito Problem
It is common to expect mosquitoes to be around you when you head outdoors – especially during certain times of the year. For Texas, it’s usually in the summer months of June, July, August and September. Though mosquitos may be most active during the warmer seasons, it doesn’t mean they aren’t around at other times.
There is a really good chance you have a mosquito infestation if you reside in an area that has:
- Shady areas
- A humid climate
- Standing water
The Dangers of Mosquitos – and What You Can Do
Mosquitos can transmit serious diseases with just one bite, such as the West Nile virus, dengue virus, malaria, and Zika – which all have the ability to be fatal. Who wants them lurking by the dozens just outside their front door? No one.
If you think your mosquito population is growing, here’s what you need to do:
First, you will want to get rid of standing water. Mosquitos are attracted to places with standing water – and females find it to be a wonderful place to lay eggs. Did we mention that a female can lay hundreds of eggs at one time?
Next, call Ajax Exterminating to professionally handle your mosquito situation.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I keep mosquitos from biting me?
You can use various different insect repellants when you are outdoors, light citronella candles if you are remaining in one spot, or – call in the professionals.
What scents repel mosquitos?
Natural scents that repel mosquitos are lavender, peppermint oil, citronella oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, and so on. However, when you are dealing with an infestation, natural methods don’t always seem to be able to do the trick. It’s a job for something much stronger.
Where do mosquitos live around my home?
While they love stagnant water and heavily shaded areas, they can also be found in clogged gutters, children’s toys, buckets, birdbaths, flowerpots, poorly maintained swimming pools, and the like.
Why don’t we see mosquitos as often during the day?
Mosquitos often sleep during the day in sheltered, dark areas. The sun can dehydrate them – and even kill them. So, they sleep during the day and become more active once the sun starts to set.
