Mosquitoes are annoying, that much we know! Here are a few other facts, and prevention tips, to enhance your mosquito knowledge:

 What do you use to treat mosquitoes?

We utilize a customized, comprehensive plan of attack when treating mosquitoes. First, an inspection will be made to identify current and potential areas of concern in terms of mosquito control. Addressing what attracts mosquitoes to a location in the first place is essential. Eliminating factors that encourage mosquito growth in and around the property is integral to decreasing the current mosquito population, as well as possible future invaders. Once we have inspected, identified, and addressed areas of concern, our specialists will begin to defend your home or business with a variety of treatment protocols, based on your unique needs. 

How often should a property be treated for mosquitoes?

Every pest situation, and accompanying treatment plan, are unique. Thus, it is impossible to predict the necessary amount of time between treatments. Beyond reducing areas that support mosquito activity and the selected control method administered, other factors may determine how often treatments are needed. Time of year, temperature, humidity, and rainfall all factor into how long treatments will remain effective.  

What can homeowners do to reduce the risks from mosquitoes?

Sure, mosquitos are a nuisance, but they are also harmful to children, adults, and pets! There are several mosquito-borne diseases, some are even deadly, that include Dengue Fever, Malaria, West Nile Virus, and Zika Virus, among others. With these health hazards in mind, there are several things homeowners can do to reduce the risks from uncontrolled mosquito populations. These include focusing on removing the elements mosquitos need to thrive, namely food, shelter, and water. It is advised to remove any stagnant or standing water, if possible. Likewise, try to reduce debris in your yard, as these often become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. It is also advisable to avoid venturing outdoors during dusk or dawn, as mosquitoes are more prevalent during these times.

Tips On Reducing Mosquitos for Homeowners and Businesses

Tip 1

Stop mosquitoes from coming into your home or business by ensuring all entry points are securely sealed. Focus on cracks on or near doors and windows, as well as any other opening that leads inside the property, such as vents. 

Tip 2

Remove or decrease the amount of standing water in or near the property. If possible, eliminate standing water from items such as flower pots, toys, temporary pools, and bird baths, as this attracts mosquitoes. If stagnant water cannot be removed, replace it every few days.

Tip 3

Managing vegetation in a homeowner’s yard, and on commercial property, will reduce the likelihood of mosquitoes thriving. Be sure to remove compost piles, raked leaves, and grass clippings. Addressing overgrown bushes, trees and grass will also help to decrease the threat of mosquitoes.  

Tip 4

Wearing long-sleeve shirts and pants, as well as utilizing mosquito repellent, may not reduce overall mosquito activity, but it will help decrease the chance of getting bit!

Current Special For Mosquito Control In Loganville Ga

Mosquitoes are mostly found near water sources. Females lay their eggs in stagnant water or aquatic plants, so lake beds and areas near creeks are often full of these insects. They are especially prevalent at night as most mosquito species are dormant during the day. They need warmth to survive, and the summer is the time of year when most people have problems with mosquito infestations. If large numbers of mosquitoes are a consistent problem, you are probably near a mosquito breeding ground with ideal conditions for the insects.

In addition to the irritating whining and buzzing noises they make as they hover around, mosquitoes pose a threat to human health. Mosquito bites leave itchy bumps on the skin, and enough bites can lead to some serious discomfort. This is especially true of people who are allergic to mosquitoes. In addition to the skin irritation that they cause, mosquito bites can be dangerous. Because they feed on the blood of many different animals, mosquitoes often pick up and transmit diseases. The most notorious of these diseases are malaria and the deadly West Nile virus, but there are several others. Many scientists even argue that mosquitoes are the most dangerous animal worldwide, and up to 700 million people contract malaria from mosquito bites each year.
