MOSQUITO CONTROL

reclaim your yard

If you have ever been bitten by a mosquito, you know how utterly annoying these pests can be. However, their bites are more than just a nuisance; they could be deadly. Mosquitos are renowned carriers of some of the worst diseases man has ever seen, including West Nile virus, Zika virus, malaria, yellow fever, and so much more. In fact, disease from mosquito bites has been blamed for the death of millions or even billions of people worldwide throughout history. While these truly dangerous mosquitos aren’t common here in the United States, they do still exist, so it’s important to protect your property.

customized treatment plan

Each property is unique and as such we want to make sure we customize each mosquito service to your specific yard needs.

breeding sites

Mosquitoes tend to breed in the moist parts of the yard. Each treatment our Mosquito Professional will search out and treat any breeding site to prevent mosquitoes from breeding on your property.

nesting sites

Mosquitoes will nest around your property on the undersides of leaves in the lawn, bushes, and trees and other cool parts of the yard.

what are mosquitoes?

A mosquito is a small, flying insect that generally runs roughly only around one-eighth of an inch in size. This makes them lightweight, hard to see, and even harder to feel. Mosquitos generally feed on plant nectar and sugars, which they gain access to it with a long, thin mouth tube that can reach into even tiny areas. Contrary to popular belief, it is only female mosquitoes that pierce skin and feast on blood; they use the proteins in blood to produce viable eggs that will actually hatch. What this means is that those who have a high-sugar diet will be more appetizing to mosquitos, but even a completely sugar-free diet isn’t immune to their bites.

Are mosquitoes dangerous? Most people wouldn’t think so here in the United States. They can be easily squashed with a swat of a hand or a swing of a newspaper. And yet, as we discussed earlier, these creatures can carry some of the nastiest and most deadly diseases we have ever seen as a species. They’re dangerous for our pets too—mosquitos carry parasitic heartworms that can be fatal to dogs and cats if they go undetected.

how we prevent mosquitoes

Mosquitos love to live in warm, damp areas near water, which they use as a source of moisture for laying eggs. In fact, stagnant water puddles are a favored breeding ground for mosquitoes, even if they’re as small as puddles. We spray these areas with an anti-mosquito fogger that eliminates alive bugs and their nests, preventing the eggs from hatching. However, this is only part of the solution, and we also implement other measures to prevent these bugs from returning. While we can’t guarantee you will never see a mosquito again, we can guarantee you will notice a significant difference in mosquito numbers on your property not long after your first treatment.

We also recommend the following mosquito prevention steps:

  • Remove tree stumps that can collect water from your property
  • Eliminate any standing water from your property.
  • Keep gutters clear of clogs and debris.
  • Fix leaky outdoor hoses and faucets.
  • Keep the grass in your yard cut short.
  • Fill in low-lying areas in your lawn that collect rainwater.
  • Keep containers that collect water upside down when not in use.
