What kind of mosquitoes are these?
The most common species of mosquito found in Loveland, Greeley, Fort Collins, and elsewhere in Colorado is the Culex. They on average are pale brown with whitish stripes across the abdomen and can grow to 1/4" to 3/8" long.
Are they dangerous?
Mosquitoes are well-known to spread diseases such as West Nile Virus, malaria and dengue fever.
So why do I have them?
Generally, it's due to standing water, which is a breeding source on or near your property. This can be pools, tires, clogged gutters, heavy watering practices, bird feeders and more. Female mosquitoes suck our blood. Male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar. They can develop from egg to adult in 10 to 14 days. They are most active from dusk to dawn and will fly up to 14 miles for a blood meal.
How do you get rid of them?
Getting rid of mosquitoes is nearly impossible. However, reducing breeding sites and treatment can significantly reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home or business. That's why our mosquito service includes the necessary treatment and breeding source reduction needed, for one fee. Our mosquito treatment method consists of the following:
One-Time Service - Detailed inspection of the entire area, identifying areas of activity and breeding sources. A treatment around the foundation, shrubs, bushes and lawn is applied to eliminate mosquito resting areas. Any breeding sources found will also be treated or corrected if possible.
Optional Maintenance - Monthly treatment throughout the summer months will greatly diminish the mosquito activity around your home or business.
Is the treatment safe?
EnviroPest uses the least amount of material possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people or pets. All products are registered by the EPA. Our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
How soon can you get here?
We take all pest problems seriously and are committed to helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
How much does it cost?
$99 for up to 1 acre for the first visit, then only $79 per month for continued service through the summer.
What is the warranty?
Due to the nature of this pest, we are unable to offer a warranty. However, we do guarantee you will see a significant reduction in activity within 5 days of treatment, or we will re-treat the area at no charge. If for any reason, you are not 100% satisfied with your mosquito control service, we will correct it free of charge. That’s EnviroPest’s promise to keep your home pest free.
