The Health Risks of Mosquito Bites
Although you can avoid mosquito bites by staying indoors, using insect repellents on skin and clothing, and wearing long pants and shirts, these measures can interfere with your enjoyment of the warmest months of the year. However, mosquito bites can cause much more than just itchy welts. These disease-carrying insects can pose a serious risk to both people and pets.
What Diseases Can Mosquitos Carry?
Mosquitoes can be vectors of a range of diseases, including:
- West Nile virus
- Zika virus
- Canine heartworm
How to Protect Your Family from Mosquitos
Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell if mosquitoes are carrying disease just by looking at them. The best way to protect your family and reduce mosquito populations is a combination of adulticides that kill adult mosquitoes and larvicides that prevent larvae from becoming biting adults.

Mosquitoes have four life stages:
- And adult
Our mosquito control program starts with a professional yard inspection, so we can assess your mosquito problem and make decisions about effective mosquito control. We can identify breeding grounds and provide recommendations for how you can reduce breeding and resting sites on your property.
Mosquitoes often breed in and around:
- Over-watered or flooded landscaping
- Water gardens
- Rain barrels
- Roof gutters
- Ornamental fountains
- Retention ponds
- Urns, buckets, and empty planters
- Any water-holding receptacle
Treatments can help reduce mosquito populations, but there is no guaranteed method to completely eliminate mosquitoes. We use a proactive approach that not only targets adult mosquitoes but aims to reduce mosquito breeding and resting sites on your property.
What Season Are Mosquitos Most Active in Asheville?
Mosquito activity in Asheville can vary greatly depending on the season.
Here's a breakdown of how mosquito populations and activity may change throughout the year:
As temperatures start to warm up in Asheville, typically in late March or early April, mosquito activity may begin to increase. Spring rains can create standing water, which provides favorable breeding conditions for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes may become more active, seeking food for reproduction and causing annoyance to residents and visitors alike.
Summer months, from June to August, are typically the peak mosquito season in Asheville. With warm temperatures and high humidity, mosquitoes thrive and breed rapidly. During this time, mosquito populations may be at their highest, and mosquito activity can be particularly bothersome, both during the day and in the evening. Mosquitoes may transmit diseases such as West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) during this time, posing a health risk to the community.
As temperatures start to cool down in Asheville, usually in late September or October, mosquito activity tends to decrease. The cooler weather reduces mosquito breeding opportunities as standing water sources may dry up, and mosquitoes become less active. However, it's important to note that mosquitoes can still be active in early fall, and certain species may continue to breed in protected areas with favorable conditions.
During the winter months, from December to February, mosquito activity is typically low in Asheville. Cold temperatures and frost can significantly reduce mosquito populations as mosquitoes enter a period of inactivity or die off.
The Importance of Year-Round Mosquito Maintenance
However, it's important to note that some mosquito species, particularly those that overwinter as adults or in protected habitats, may still be active during mild winters or in indoor environments. It's important to highlight that while mosquito activity may decrease during colder months, mosquito control efforts should still continue throughout the year to prevent a potential resurgence and ensure long-term effectiveness.
