Mosquitoes are actually part of the same group as the true flies, Diptera (and sometimes they too are confused for one another). They can actually grow up to 9 mm in size.
It is possible to have an infestation of these pests, and if that occurs, it is important to take action, quickly, as they can carry disease that can affect both humans and domestic animals.
Signs of an Infestation
For those wondering whether or not they have a true mosquito infestation, look for the sounds of the females buzzing, and of course, note the increase of bites on the body.
People do have different reactions to mosquito bites, due to the fact that everyone is allergic in different ways. Some might feel only a mild irritation, while some people are prone to intense inflammation and swelling.
Signs of the immature mosquitoes are finding them in standing water (this can include the trays or dishes under houseplants).
Getting Rid of Them
A number of pesticides, typically sprays, are available at home repair or hardware stores. Or, call a professional to eradicate all signs of these pests. Other ideas are mosquito zappers, which hang outside the home, in areas of high traffic. The only problem with zappers is that they do little or nothing to control the actual population of these pests, and do not address their breeding areas.
For Alpharetta pest control, and more importantly, protection from these flying pests, consider consulting a professional.
