Should I Be Worried About Mosquitoes In Bel Air, MD?
Mosquitoes don't just suck your blood - they can transmit diseases, too. The three most common mosquitoes in Bel Air are the Asian tiger mosquito, the common house mosquito, and the yellow fever mosquito. Mosquitoes are most active when the ambient temperature is above 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Asian tiger mosquitoes are aggressive, daytime biters, and the common house mosquito will bite more often around dawn and dusk. Because they prefer to bite birds, which can be carriers of the West Nile virus, the common house mosquito is more likely to transmit West Nile virus than the Asian tiger mosquito. Yellow fever mosquitoes are losing ground to and getting displaced by the more competitive Asian tiger mosquito.

What Problems Can Termites Cause In Bel Air MD?
Termites are a problem across many parts of the country, including Maryland. The mild weather in Maryland allows termites to be active year-round, moving around and gathering food for their colony 24/7. This means there is always the potential for these small insects to take advantage of openings in your home’s exterior walls and move inside.
Once they gain entrance into your home, they travel through wooden floor joists and into pieces of structural wood located behind walls and under floors. Being able to work for a very long time without notice is the biggest reason why termites cause so many problems.
Some of the many issues wood-eating termites cause are:
- Costly repair bills: Most homeowners insurance companies don’t cover termite damage.
- Damaging the structural integrity of your home: Termites can work quietly within a home for months or years without detection. Termites prefer damp, dark areas and often begin feeding on foundation supports in basement areas.
- Cosmetic issues: Blistered walls, spongy floors, buckling ceilings, and windows and doors that no longer open or close correctly.

Stink Bug Control In Bel Air, MD
The unpleasant smell stink bugs emit may make you think they are poisonous, but luckily they are not. What they are, are unwanted pests that often gather within our Bel Air homes to overwinter.
In the late fall, when the weather begins to cool and the days shorten, stink bugs naturally realize they need to look for warm shelter to spend the winter months. Stink bugs don’t hibernate, but they spend time in cold weather being inactive. So though having hordes of these smelly pests in your home is less than ideal, they don’t cause harm when inside, nor do they feed or breed.
To protect your home from stink bugs, we offer our stink bug control service as an add-on to our Quarterly Pest Control plan. Our professionals treat areas where stink bugs are active and where they are most likely to move inside your home: exterior walls, areas around windows and doors, and soffits.

Bel Air, MD
The town of Bel Air is the county seat of Harford County, Maryland. Bel Air lies within the humid subtropical climate zone. Bel Air features hot, often humid summers, mild, wet springs, pleasant falls and cool to chilly winters. The average precipitation for Bel Air is around 40-43 inches while snowfall averages 19–24 inches.
The primary means of transportation to and from Bel Air is by road, and the most prominent highway serving the town is Maryland Route 24. MD 24 provides the most direct link between Bel Air and the nearest U.S. Highway, U.S. Route 1, and the nearest Interstate highway, Interstate 95. US 1 formerly ran through the town, but now follows a bypass around the northwest side, with U.S. Route 1 Business following US 1's former alignment through Bel Air. Maryland Route 924 also follows MD 24's old alignment through downtown Bel Air. Finally, Maryland Route 22 provides a direct connection between Bel Air and the city of Aberdeen. By road, Bel Air is 27 mi northeast of Baltimore, 66 mi northeast of Washington DC, 78 mi southwest of Philadelphia and 167 mi southwest of New York City.
Bel Air's identity has gone through several incarnations since 1780. Aquilla Scott, who had inherited land known as "Scott's Improvement Enlarged," planned the town on a portion that he called "Scott's Old Fields." Four years later, the town had expanded as local politicians, merchants, and innkeepers purchased lots from Scott, and the county commissioners decided to change its name to the more appealing "Belle Aire." In his deeds, Scott dropped one letter, renaming the town, "Bell Aire." Around 1798, court records dropped two more letters, and "Bel Air" was born.
During this period, Bel Air began to rise in prominence. In 1782, just two years after its founding, it became Harford's county seat, and Daniel Scott (Aquilla's son) started building a courthouse on Main Street. Although the town limits in the late 18th century encompassed nothing more than the two sides of Main Street, the days following the Civil War saw a building and land-development boom that remains in full swing to this day.
Originally known as "Scott's Old Fields", Bel Air was part of a land grant issued to Daniel Scott in 1731. In March 1782 "Belle Aire" was designated the county seat of Harford County. At the turn of the twentieth century the "e" was dropped and the second "l" and its companion "e" gave way a few years later. The town's incorporation was effective in 1874. The town began with just 42 lots along Main Street centering on the Court House and the county jail and sheriff's house. Over the years, the population grew slowly to about 200 residents by 1865. The introduction of the canning industry, the Ma & Pa railroad and related financial businesses jump started the growth after the Civil War. Although the town experienced periods of rapid growth followed by extremely slow growth over the next century, Bel Air's role as the center of government and commerce continued to expand.
Since 1980, the town and its surrounding suburbs have grown substantially. Today, Bel Air is the center for governmental, educational, cultural, medical, and commercial institutions in the county.
