Mosquito Control Services in Port St. Lucie, FL
Comprehensive Port St. Lucie Mosquito Control Services
Protect your home and family with safe and effective mosquito treatments
In some parts of the country, mosquitoes can be considered a seasonal nuisance, but not in Florida. Although their population may seasonally fluctuate because of heat and humidity, homeowners in Port St. Lucie generally must deal with these disease-carrying pests throughout the year. Unfortunately, mosquitoes can carry the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Dengue Fever, Chikungunya, and other viruses.

According to the University of Florida’s medical entomology laboratory, more than 80 mosquito species have been identified in our state—a number greater than any other state. And, although not all of them carry diseases, there is no way to identify ahead of time which ones do.
Diseases carried by mosquitoes can spread rapidly, being transmitted to people through bites—and, to make matters worse, females of many mosquito varieties use the sugars and lipids in blood they collect through bites to optimize their egg production.
Managing Your Mosquito Population
When DIY-ing, note that spring is often the peak season for mosquitoes in Port St. Lucie, although they swarm around all year long. In the spring, check for potential breeding spots on your property. Both males and females prefer wooded and watery areas, so check your property for any sources of standing water, even small ones—and eliminate that water. This can include just a teaspoon of water in barrels or pots placed beneath planters. For water sources that you maintain, such as fountains or bird baths, frequently change the water and keep vegetation and trash away from them.
Here are more places to check that you might not think about:
- Children’s toys
- Garden tools
- Trash containers or recycling bins
- Grill covers
- Car or boat covers
- Wading pools
- Low spots around the home’s foundation
- Pipe, faucet, or hose leaks
Mosquitoes are so savvy that they can even breed in a toilet that’s rarely used. So, if you have that situation, flush yours every so often to prevent this from happening.
Make sure that window and door screens are in good shape, well sealed. Fix any problems with possible entry points because you sure don’t want to be relaxing on the sofa and then suddenly hear the buzzing sound that indicates indoor mosquitoes. If that happens and you’ve got a baby or young children, protect their cribs/beds with mosquito netting until this situation is addressed.
And, whenever possible, stay inside at dawn and dusk, when these pests are swarming most heavily. Wear pants and long sleeves outdoors and cover exposed skin with appropriate repellents.
