As well as being an obvious nuisance and limiting outdoor activities, mosquitoes are the number one disease carrying insect. West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue, malaria and canine heartworm are most notable.
Beyond mosquito repellant for protecting you and your family, we offer a long-term mosquito population reduction program.
Mosquito Programs Include:
Develop a survey of your property and its surroundings
Identify breeding and resting sites.
Eliminate breeding sites where possible.
Apply larvacides in standing water.
Apply adulticides to kill flying mosquitos.
Mosquito products may be used around people and pets with confidence. Mosquito larvacide will not harm pets, birds or aquatic life
THINGS YOU CAN DO TO REDUCE MOSQUITOES AROUND YOUR HOME:
Keep your grass short and mow before, not after, an application
Don’t over water
Keep hedges and other hiding places trimmed and open
Empty and clean bird baths regularly
Keep ornamental ponds clean and circulating
Keep wading pools and swimming pools clean and circulating
Get rid of old tires, cans, bottles, and any other containers that collect rain or irrigation water
Empty plant saucers every couple of days
Plant bromeliads in pots, not the ground. Empty the water they collect regularly by inverting them
Keep gutters and downspouts clean and free running
Water control is mosquito control
