When Is Mosquito Active Season?


Mosquito season means that Monmouth County pest control technicians are busy keeping NJ homeowners safe from these pests. While mosquitoes can make it hard to be outside without worrying about being bitten, they’re not active all day. Learn more about when mosquitoes are the most active.

Mosquito Activity During the Day

Mosquitoes don’t go around biting people throughout the day. In fact, most are only active at certain times. Knowing what these times are can help you take steps to reduce your risk of being bitten. Mosquitoes are the most active at night, as well as at sunrise and sunset. You’re unlikely to see mosquitoes around in the middle part of the day.

Other Mosquito Activity Factors

Keep in mind that other factors affect mosquito activity, including temperatures and weather. They tend to be out more on cloudy days and when temperatures range from roughly 64 to 93 degrees. Different types of mosquitoes are active at different times as well. Aedes mosquitoes, such as Asian tiger mosquitoes, are out during the day more. Culex mosquitoes, which are more common, are typically out at night.

Tips to Prevent Mosquitoes

Wearing mosquito repellent can keep mosquitoes from biting you. Getting rid of standing water in your yard prevents them from being able to establish colonies and reproduce, which can reduce mosquito populations in your area.
