Summer comes each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood. Not only do these bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. Because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals. Through Malaria, Zika and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Rhode Island mosquito problem and reduce them quickly.
You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Rhode Island.
One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.
Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

Many bugs and rodents can carry viruses and harmful diseases.
During mosquito season, we suggest removing standing water from your yard.
Also covering up in long-sleeved shirts and pants, especially when going outside after dusk.
Using repellent with DEET is also important to avoid bites.
Our Fox Pest Pros can easily visit your home and apply monthly treatments throughout the spring and summer.
This will decrease the likelihood of mosquitoes laying eggs and inhabiting your yard.

Because No Bugs is Simply Better.
Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes around in Rhode Island, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.
Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.
Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds.(Or you could call Fox Pest Control in Rhode Island to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.)
When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans.
Yes they can be. Even in Rhode Island mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower.
We have used Fox at our property for 2 years now. The service technicians and phone representatives have consistently been so helpful and friendly. We have the home quarterly service and have very few issues with pests. We did have a problem with hornets coming in our chimney that wasn't covered, but everything else has been treated within one week of a phone call. We had very few issues with summer pests this year after adding the mosquito plan. We will be sticking with Fox for years to come.
All associates that have come to service our home have been friendly and professional. Ralph has been very responsive and is knowledgeable about his trade. On another note, I received 4 treatments for mosquitoes this summer. The mosquitos were manageable with the service, almost not a problem. After our treatments ended. A month later we were getting eaten alive, so clearly it was working more than we realized. I will definitely sign up at the start of the mosquito season next time. Thanks Fox. Keep up the good work! Oh I almost forgot! excellent Covid procedures by the technicians. Booties and Gloves and mask
Jamie provided the mosquito service. As usual, he's informative and is always pleasant to work with. Thank you.
Great company, communication and rates. Dependent on them to keep away mosquitoes and tics! Very professional and thorough.
For a couple years we had another company take care of our outdoor for mosquitoes and flies with no great success. Since having fox pest control take care of our outdoors, we have been able to enjoy our backyard and front yard without getting eaten alive this year. They do a great job!
