Mosquitoes Around the Austin, Texas Area

Mosquitoes Around the Austin, Texas Area

Overall, there are 85 species of mosquito found in Texas. Mosquitoes transmit arbovirus and for humans those are bad news. These are the vectors that cause yellow fever and other illnesses. Fortunately for Austin area residence not every mosquito found in Texas is found in Austin. In fact, there are only a few species that you must be aware of and work to control them.

The Southern House Mosquito

Culex quinquefasciatus – This is a common mosquito around Austin. It is a dawn and dusk feeder. It will bite humans, but it prefers the blood of birds. Usually, this mosquito is found not too far from bogs or wetland. The female prefers to lay her eggs in organic-rich water such as a back lake or pond.

Aedes albopictus – The Asian Tiger Mosquito – This is a mosquito that can spread a variety of diseases Including Dengue. This is a fairly new arrival in Texas and many of the mosquitoes that are here do not carry many of the pathogens that cause illness in humans. What is important to understand is that should they become infected, they will become a major risk to health.

Aedes aegypti – The Yellow Fever Mosquito – This species is very similar in appearance to A. albopictus These are dark mosquitoes with white strips on the body and legs. Th is mosquito prefers to dine on human blood but may also use animal blood too.

Generally, mosquitoes feed at dawn and dusk and avoid the heat of the midday. Both the Yellow Fever mosquito and the Asian Tiger mosquito feed during the hotter parts of the day. That is one of the surest ways for a non-entomologist to telling the difference between domestic mosquitoes and those that are non-native. This is not 100% but it makes an adequate tool.

These three species of mosquito are found around the greater Austin area.  To learn more about how to control mosquitoes around your home or place of work, just reach out to our team. We provide accurate and affordable pest control services to the Greater Austin Area.
