In this country, it is mainly the eastern parts (Mpumalanga and northern kwazulu Natal) that have a serious problem with mosquitoes especially those that transmit malaria. Mosquitoes are from the insect order Diptera (“two-winged”) – the same order as house flies. They belong to the family Culcidae.
The three prevalent mosquitoes in S.A. are the malaria mosquitoes – Anopheles spp, the common house mosquito – Culex spp and the yellow fever mosquito – Aedes spp.
You may hear their high pitched buzzing when flying at night.
Red marks and itching on open areas on the body where they may have bitten you
Mosquitoes can transmit a viral disease such as yellow fever, dengue fever, malaria and the west Nile virus.
Chronic infestations can result in the loss of potential recurring customers.
If they transmit one of the diseases through to your customers it can result in a potential lawsuit.
It is important to eliminate any stagnant water in close by areas because that is normally where mosquitoes breed.
Fogging is normally the best method to eliminate mosquitoes because they are a flying insect
Keeping the grass trimmed also helps because mosquitoes like to rest in low-lying vegetation
