This winter we have had so many calls come in regarding mosquitoes in The Woodlands, TX! But it’s not in the yard that these pesky flying critters have invaded, but it’s your front door! If you are reading this, chances are you have an infestation of mosquitoes by your front door. But why? Why do they like that area more than the rest of your home, or any other corner of The Woodlands, TX? Keep reading below so you can learn how you can keep Mosquitoes away from your door this Winter!
How Do I Know If I Have A Problem With Mosquitoes?
If you live in The Woodlands, TX it is very easy to determine if you are dealing with a mosquito problem. Mosquitoes are known to buzz around you, trying to get blood before the winter months come in. They typically attack at dawn and dusk but it can happen any time of day! If you have had a mosquito infestation by your door, chances are it’s because there is standing water near by.
Mosquitoes typically like to lay their eggs in standing water, such as puddles and dishes left uncleaned!
So Why Do Mosquitoes Hang Out By Your Door?
Mosquitoes come to hang out by your door for a couple of reasons – one is because most homes and buildings have lights inside, which is exactly the kind of light that mosquitoes like (it’s also why they love hanging out around street lamps). Mosquitoes are also attracted to the CO2 that we exhale, so if you’re nearby, then they will find their way to your door.
Another reason your door might be infested with mosquitoes is because of heat. Mosquitoes are attracted to heat, and they can pick up on it from far away. Windows are a good source of heat and so is your front door. These two things combined usually cause mosquitoes to be near or hanging out by your front door. There may be a standing puddle of water near your front door, and the mosquitoes are taking advantage of it.
Are Mosquitoes Attracted To My Door?
Mosquitoes also might be hanging out by your door because that is where they get their food from. If you live in a place where there are mosquitos during the winters, then you might notice them coming to bite you right when you enter your home. They are probably not looking for blood – they are looking for any source of food they can find, and you might be it!
Mosquitoes might also hang out by your front door because of the smell the area gives off. Standing water, fresh-cut grass, and flowers can all give off smells that attract mosquitoes. This why they can be found around plant. Your front door might be giving off these smells.
Lastly, mosquitoes love hang
ing out by your front door because it’s close to where people walk by. If there is a lot of foot traffic in your area, this will attract mosquitoes even more!
While there are different reasons why your front door could be infested with mosquitoes, the good news is that there are ways to get rid of them permanently. There are some great mosquito deterrents out there!
