3 Tips From Washington DC's Health Department To Help Prevent Mosquitoes
The 3 most common mosquitoes in Washington DC are the common house mosquito (Culex pipiens), the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus), and the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti). Mosquitoes become active as soon as the air temperature reaches 68 degrees. In an urban setting like in Washington DC, that means that mosquitoes can remain active throughout most, if not all, of the year. To get rid of mosquitoes, it's important to reduce standing water around your home or business - this standing water is where mosquitoes lay their eggs. Here are 3 tips from DC's Health Department to help prevent mosquitoes from breeding on your property:
- Empty or throw away water-filled containers regularly.
- Cover or turn over empty items that can collect water.
- Clean and scrub bird baths and pet-watering dishes at least once per week.

Tick, Flea & Mosquito Control In Washington, DC
Fleas and ticks are both active year round in Washington DC and the surrounding areas. While these pests are active year round, their peak season tends to be in the spring, summer, and fall, coinciding with mosquito season. Miche Pest Control provides both seasonal and year round treatment options for its yard services for ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes.
Our goal is to provide the best tick, flea, and mosquito services possible. Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks all tend to be most concentrated in areas with tall grass, standing water, leaf litter, under sheds, and other places with shade and moisture, but ticks especially will sometimes be found in the middle of a yard, having fed on and fallen off of animals in your yard. Our tick, fleas & mosquito services treat all of the foliage in the yard, as well as grassy areas, and under decks and sheds. We use a combination of products designed to eliminate adult mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, as well as their larval stages, effectively breaking the pests’ life cycles.
With safety in mind, we use products that are registered with the EPA, labeled for use in/around homes, hospitals, day cares, and pet kennels. The first service is designed to get rid of an existing infestation, if you have one, but most of our customers use our services preventatively. Each service works proactively to keep your yard protected from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. The products we use don’t last forever, so once the products break down and eggs start hatching, we come back and re-apply the protective treatments that we’ve applied around your yard. These services are typically provided once per month, but Miche Pest Control’s Pest Free Guarantee means that if you have issues with ticks, fleas, or mosquitoes in between your monthly services, all you have to do is let us know and we’ll come back at no additional cost.
Because we will sometimes schedule your monthly services as frequently as every 3-4 weeks, to keep things consistent, simple and affordable, we bill monthly, year round, on the same day every month for our tick, flea & mosquito services. Give us a call to get your free quote on the best tick, flea and mosquito control in Washington DC or if you would prefer to schedule your first service yourself, you can book online!

Washington DC, formally known as the District of Columbia, more commonly known as DC, is the official capital of the United States of America. It is located on east side of the Potomac River, bordering Maryland and Virginia. The United States Congress held its first session there in 1800. The city was named after George Washington, a Founding Father and the first president of the United States. The federal district was named after Columbia, a female personification of our nation. As the seat of the US federal government and several international organizations, DC is an important world political capital. It is one of the most visited cities in the US, with over 24 million visitors in 2019.
The District of Columbia is not a part of any U.S. state. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River near the country's Atlantic Coast. The City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the national capital. In 1801, the land, formerly part of Maryland and Virginia (at the time including the settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria), officially became recognized as the federal district. In 1846, Congress returned to Virginia the portion of Washington DC that had been originally ceded by Virginia, including the cities of Alexandria and Arlington; in 1871, it created a single municipal government for the remaining portion of the district.
DC is divided into quadrants (NW, NE, SE, and SW), centered on the United States Capitol (aka the Capitol Building or Capitol Hill), with 8 wards, 37 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, and 127 named neighborhoods. It is the 20th-most populous city in the US. Commuters from the surrounding suburbs in Maryland and Northern Virginia raise the city's daytime population to more than one million during the workweek. Washington DC's metropolitan area is the country's sixth-largest metropolitan area, and includes portions of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
