Getting Rid Of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes can be an annoyance to homeowners and prevent them from fully enjoying their yards. These insects can also carry diseases such as West Nile, Dengue, and Chikungunya viruses.

Although complete mosquito eradication is not viable, it is possible to reduce mosquito populations to a level that can allow homeowners to enjoy their backyards.

Mosquito Prevention

With the proper guidance and education, homeowners can be capable of taking the right precautionary steps to reduce mosquitoes around their homes. Backyards provide multiple locations for mosquitoes to breed, and by removing these sources, homeowners can have a more successful management program.

The American Mosquito Control Association recommends following the three D’s of mosquito protection:

  1. Drain:

Empty water-filled containers on a weekly basis to prevent and remove mosquito eggs and larvae.

  1. Defend

Select a mosquito repellent that is registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to have minimal risk.

  1. Dress

Choose to wear long sleeves and pants that are light in color and loose fitting as studies have proven mosquitoes are more attracted to dark, fitted clothing.

Effective mosquito management programs require a true integrated approach to effectively suppress mosquito populations.

Who should you hire to spray for mosquitos?

When hiring a pest management professional, you should have a clear agreement between regarding the goals of the treatment and the responsibilities of both parties. Pest management companies should engage you by providing educational resources, and showing examples of mosquito breeding sites on your property and how to remove them.

You should avoid any claims of complete mosquito control or disease prevention claims.

Mosquito Assurance Propgram

Pest management companys now have a new mosquito control option available to them. Mosquito assurance programs provide superior mosquito control on a 60-day treatment cycle which can provide immediate and residual control of adult mosquitoes and interrupt the reproduction cycle of mosquitoes.

A Mosquito Assurance Program provides mosquito control for up to 60 days on customer accounts, compared to the market average offering of 21 days of mosquito control.
