What eats mosquitoes?

So What eats mosquitoes? Many household common household pests can be effectively dealt with by introducing a predator to the environment. For example, cats make excellent mouse and rat catchers. If you have a cat in your home, mice and rats are far less likely to invade and build their nests. But when it comes to mosquitoes, there isn’t an obvious choice of predator to help take care of them for you. T

To complicate things further, many predators only predate mosquitoes at certain stages of their life cycles. For example, some water beetle larvae will consume mosquito eggs and larvae but will only encounter them on the water’s surface. These beetles begin their lives at the bottom of the water body; they don’t reach the surface until they have started to mature.

What eats mosquitoes?

Numerous freshwater fish species predate mosquito larvae. Pools of water containing these fish are unlikely to become infested with mosquito eggs. Similarly, tadpoles and adult newts, frogs, and toads all consume mosquito larvae. These marine animals are relatively common and make an attractive addition to any pond or pool suited to hosting them. However, you will need to clean the water before fish, or other animals can live in it. This process can be more complicated and expensive than dealing with the mosquitoes, but it will prevent future outbreaks.

Certain fly species will predate adult mosquitoes and emerging larvae. These flies often like to hang out around the same water bodies that attract mosquitoes; they will often target female mosquitoes as they lay their eggs.

Some bird species target mosquitoes, including several types of tits; marsh tits are particularly effective at hunting them. Robins and blackbirds will also snap up a mosquito if they get the chance.

Encouraging or introducing any of the creatures above to your property will make it a much more hostile environment for mosquitoes and keep their numbers to a minimum.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
