Mosquito Treatment and Pest Prevention

Mosquito Control Sydney

Mosquito infestations occur every year in Sydney, especially throughout the rainy season. This is why you need to be very careful to set up pest control around that time, lest you risk getting mosquito bites all over. At Eco Pest Control Sydney, we have professionals that can help set up mosquito protection for you.

How We Treat Mosquitos

As mosquitoes are a seasonal occurrence, at Eco Pest Control Sydney, we will help prevent a current infestation from getting any bigger. We will find their breeding spots and destroy their nests, but also apply mosquito repellent around the property. This will keep mosquitos away throughout the entire season.

Why Are Mosquitoes Considered Pests?

Mosquitoes are considered pests because they feed on blood, jumping from one human to another – therefore, they can transmit infected blood. Their bite is not only uncomfortable and itchy but can also carry potentially dangerous viruses such as Malaria, yellow fever, Zika, dengue fever, Ross River virus, and many more.

Common Species of Mosquitoes in Sydney

Australia has around 300 species of mosquitoes flying about, the most common of them being:

  • Aedes australis: They are very common along the coastal area, as they breed in rock pools.
  • Aedes bancroftianus: They are very common in inland regions, and are often a nuisance after a flood.
  • Aedes flavifrons: Fairly large and breed in pools formed underneath bushes.
  • Aedes eidsvoldensis: Commonly found inland, they have the potential of carrying Murray Valley Encephalitis and Ross River virus.

Common Signs of a Mosquito Infestation

Mosquitoes are some of the most common pests, and they usually peak throughout the warm season, especially when it rains a lot. If you live near a water source and you keep seeing mosquitoes, then you are probably dealing with an infestation.

How Do You Know If You Have a Mosquito Problem?

One mosquito here and there is no problem, as mosquitoes are much too common. Still, here are the signs that tell you there is an infestation:

  • You hear bussing sounds every night, non-stop
  • You frequently see bite marks all over your kin
  • Mosquitos keep biting you, even if you are wearing clothes (they bite through layers)
  • You see the mosquitos during daytime as well

Treatment Tips and Advice to Deter Mosquitoes

Mosquito bites are fairly annoying and can potentially be dangerous as well. Here are a few tips to keep them away:

  1. Get Insect Screen: Most mosquitoes get inside your home when you try to ventilate the house and allow fresh air to pass. Install an insect screen to prevent the mosquitoes from entering, while keeping the fresh air coming.
  2. Use Room Mosquito Repellent: Nowadays, you can buy mosquito repellent from the supermarket. This is usually plugged into a socket. The scent released by the repellent will keep the mosquitoes away from your home.
  3. Remove Stagnant Water: Mosquitoes usually breed in stagnant water, such as a pond, a kiddie pool, or even a forgotten bucket. Remove those water sources to reduce their breeding spots.
  4. Use Repelling Plants: Mosquitoes dislike plants such as citronella that release strong scents. Plant a few handfuls and ruffle them here and there, to release their scent.
  5. Wear Light Colours: Mosquitoes are typically nocturnal creatures, and they are attracted to dark colours. Switching from dark to light clothing colours might spare you some mosquito bites.
  6. Wear Mosquito Repellent: Nowadays, mosquitoes have adapted so that they can bite even through clothes. Drugstore-bought mosquito repellent applied on the skin can discourage them from taking a bite out of you.
  7. Use Cedar Oil: Cedar oil has a strong scent that mosquitoes dislike. Make a spray out of cedar oil and water and spray it in your yard, as well as your house.
  8. Get a Fan: An oscillating fan will create wind and make it difficult for mosquitoes to land. If they don’t have control over their movement, they will eventually relocate.
  9. Keep Your Feet Covered: Mosquitoes like sweat, bacteria, and stale smells – which means they will go straight for your feet. Keep them covered to prevent mosquitoes from finding a meal.
  10. Trim Your Yard: Mosquitoes like spending their day in moist, cool shades. Trim your yard frequently to make it appear less appealing to them.


  1. Do Mosquitoes in Sydney Carry the Zika Virus?

While Zika infections may be transmitted through mosquito bites in Sydney, it is very rare. That being said, they may transmit a variety of other diseases, so you may still want to protect yourself against their bites.

  1. Does Mosquito Treatment Wash Out During Rainy Season?

As long as quality mosquito control is used, it will not wash out during the rainy season. However, its resistance is still set by whether it was given time to dry or not. Ideally, you should not apply a mosquito barrier if it’s raining outside.

  1. How Much Does Mosquito Control Cost?

The final price of mosquito control will depend on how big your property is. Prices start at $250 for small properties per season, but bigger properties can go as high as $1,900.
