Mosquito treatment is usually an integrated effort involving source reduction plus the use of chemical control products when needed. Since mosquitoes develop in water, source reduction targets and eliminates water sources favorable for mosquito breeding. While source reduction is the more effective long-term approach to mosquito treatment, the mosquito treatment plan may require using chemical products to supplement source reduction
Mosquitoes are resilient pests that will not only ruin your outdoor experience, but also carry dangerous vector-borne diseases. At Happy Pest Solutions , our most popular mosquito control is our barrier protection spray program.
Applied by our professional applicators around your home and throughout your backyard, this acclaimed, trusted and dependable mosquito control solution eliminates mosquitoes on contact and continues working for weeks not just days, depending on the impact of rain and weather elements. For optimum protection, season-long control is highly recommended, every 21-30 days.
Happy Pest Solutions protects your family (and pets) from the nuisance and danger of mosquitoes by focusing on the areas of your property where mosquitoes and ticks are most likely to feed and harbor. Once applied, the product provides even greater protection as mosquitoes attempt to feed off your greenery, as the residue from the treatment will knock them down too.
In addition to treatments, property owners can create a landscape that is inhospitable to mosquitoes by taking the following steps:
Planting herbs that are natural mosquito repellents such as Citronella, basil, Marigold, Lavender, Catnip, Cedars, lemon balm and rosemary are a good way to begin. Planting in portable potted planters, so you can move them to the table when eating outside is helpful and plant the herbs and flowers near doorways. Bonus; your yard will smell fantastic!
Eliminate any standing water on the property, if possible. Some items that should be monitored are: flower pots, birdbaths, pet water bowls, gutters, cans, and buckets. This interrupts the mosquito life cycle. All swimming pools should be maintained correctly to ensure they are not breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
Check all windows and door screens to ensure they are working correctly and are free from holes to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
When outside for extended periods of time, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to help protect from mosquito bites. Mosquitoes are most active in the early morning and evening, avoid being outside during these times of the day.
The use of an insect repellent, which is applied to the skin or clothing, will provide short- term protection against mosquito bites. For a better solution to Mosquito Control, use the form below to get a Quote on a Mosquito Control Treatment today.
