Professional Mosquito Control For Your Home
* Currently only available in certain areas.
Mosquitoes appear at human homes in the summertime, breeding in any standing water they can find – in storm sewers, flooded areas, tree holes, old tires, bird baths, and flower pots – and bringing with them painful bites and potentially serious disease.
Unfortunately, while mosquitoes normally feed on sugar sources, the females cannot produce fertile eggs without getting a blood meal, by biting and sucking the blood of a human or animal. This undoubtedly makes mosquitoes one of the biggest and most painful pests of the summer.
More than just a mere nuisance, mosquito bites can cause very painful inflammation and spread some serious diseases. Some mosquitoes can transmit plasmodium, a pathogen that can cause malaria, West Nile virus, encephalitis viruses complex, and filarial heartworm in dogs.
Although mosquitoes only live for a short time, they reproduce extremely fast. Every few days, females lay hundreds of eggs, which hatch a short time later. That rate of reproduction can make it extremely difficult to end a mosquito invasion.
Applying insect repellent and wearing protective clothing can help, as well as eliminating standing water and trimming back vegetation. But to successfully break the mosquito life cycle and end the infestation, you may need professional pest control services.
