Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying pests. They transmit diseases to humans. They also infect dogs with heartworms! Fortunately, we can suppress them with a fogging agent and a larvicide growth inhibitor. The females are the biters! Males will feed on nectar and other plant-based foods. The females need to feed on animals or humans in order to sustain the next cycle of life. If you have a mosquito problem, give us a call or fill out the contact form. We’ll schedule an inspection and recommend the best treatment plan for your unique situation.

How Can I Prevent Mosquitoes In My Yard?

When it comes to do it yourself methods to get rid of mosquitoes, really and truly, the best thing to do is to go out and empty any containers that could be holding water, especially after a rainfall.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a wheelbarrow or a kiddie pool. Mosquitoes don’t need much water at all for the female to lay her eggs in stagnant water. That’s why we need to get rid of any standing or stagnant water.

Are Mosquitoes Just Annoying Or Are They Dangerous too?

Obviously, we all know that mosquitoes are a vector pest, which means they can transmit disease from themselves to humans, such as West Nile and Triple E, along with a wide variety of other types of diseases. They even transmit heartworms to your pets.

How Often Should I Treat For Mosquitoes?

We recommend a monthly treatment with fogger and larvicide. While we do offer year-round mosquito control, we find that in our area the colder months will slow down their activity, so we are very flexible with treatment options as necessary.

What Methods Do You Use To Control Mosquitoes?

Once we perform a thorough inspection of the home and surrounding area, the treatment that we recommend is usually a larvicide we apply to standing water coupled with a fogger treatment sprayed onto foliage and shaded areas.

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing, stagnant water. The eggs hatch and turn into larvae until they grow into adult mosquitoes. The larvicide is placed into this standing water and prevents the larvae from growing into biting adults. 

In cases where the standing water dries up, the larvicide will lay dormant until it gets wet again.

The larvicide takes care of the eggs after they hatch, but what about the adult mosquitoes that are already flying around?

This is where the fogger treatment comes in.

We apply a fogging agent in the shaded, moist areas under the bottom parts of branches and leaves, because during the heat of the day, that’s where mosquitoes rest. We know mosquitoes fly, but they also do a lot of walking. If we can treat areas to where they walk around, we have much greater control over them.
