Mosquito Season Starts Soon
March 31, 2017
While they haven’t made their arrival yet, mosquitoes are at home packing their bags, getting ready to invade properties all across the country, determined to ruin every outdoor event that they can. If you are already dreading mosquito season; dread it no longer. The professionals at EnviroPest are here to help. We know that no one wants to dread spending time in their own backyard, that no one wants to be covered in red welts all summer long, and that no one wants to be worried about the diseases that these parasitic pests can spread. We also know how to greatly reduce mosquito numbers on any size property, throughout the mosquito’s entire active season.
At EnviroPest we are able to provide effective mosquito control services to ensure that you and your family have an enjoyable summer, spending as much time in your backyard as you want, soaking up all the vitamin D that you can handle! But, before we get into how we can help you to greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes found on your property, we want to provide you with some changes you can make around your property to make it be less attractive to mosquitoes.
- Eliminate areas of standing water found around air-conditioner units, gutters, low-lying areas, and outdoor faucets.
- Store items that can collect water (wheelbarrows, tires, and buckets) in sheds or garages instead of outside.
- Regularly change out the water in bird baths, fountains, and wading pools.
- Make sure that trash being stored outside is placed in containers with tight fitting lids until trash pick-up day.
- Keep your lawn trimmed short; reduce the amount of flowering vegetation that is planted close to your home.
Mosquitoes live, breed, and feed outside; while there is no way to completely eliminate these pests, our mosquito control services can greatly reduce their numbers. After a careful inspection of your property, our professionals will apply a safe, yet highly effective treatment to mosquito resting spots on your property. Typical resting spots include tall grasses, shrubs, bushes, and shaded spots like underneath decks and porches. If ponds or pools are located on your property, we can perform a larvicide treatment to help reduce reproduction.
At EnviroPest we recommend scheduling regular mosquito reduction services to be completed throughout their entire active season. Continuous control is the best way to keep their numbers down on your property. By taking the time now to schedule mosquito control services, you can help to ensure that you, your family, and your pets won’t have to spend a single day in your yard being attacked and bitten by mosquitoes!
