How to Treat for Blind Mosquitoes

The good news is that you'll never be bit, stung or have blood sucked out of you by blind mosquitoes. The bad news is that they're such a huge nuisance their lack of bite provides little comfort.

Blind mosquitoes, also known as aquatic midges, typically breed in small lakes and rivers, and homes located near lakefronts may experience severe infestations. Even if you don't live near a lake, swarms of blind mosquitoes may follow wind patterns right to your door. These unusual insects have a short life span due to their inability to feed, but breed in such large numbers they can easily take over entire neighborhoods, causing havoc by flying in ears, eyes and mouths. Luckily, you won't catch any diseases from them, but encounters can gross you out. When they reach your home or business, you'll often find them swarming wherever there's cool shade, or flying around lights.

Adult blind mosquitoes only live a few days, and while that may seem fortunate, the bugs usually drop dead in doorways, on sidewalks and even on cars, piling up 2 or 3 inches high. Removing this mass of bugs from your property requires attentive effort, and worse, they leave behind stains that must be washed out. Another annoyance is the foul odor that penetrates your nostrils. Bugs accumulating inside can stain walls permanently, and this can lead to a constant cycle of cleaning wall surfaces and re-touching paint.

Getting rid of a blind mosquito infestation is nearly impossible to do without professional help because of their sheer numbers. When there's an abundance of organic matter nearby, they'll continue breeding non-stop from April through November.
