Mo’ Squitos? Mo’ Problems!
It’s one thing when unwanted guests arrive unannounced – but it’s another thing entirely when they start making a meal out of you like mosquitos do. These pests are not only an annoyance, but they’re also disease vectors that are known to carry West Nile and Zika virus.
While there are some measures you can take to prevent mosquitos from making a home out of your yard, it’s always best to leave pesticide application to trained professionals in order to preserve the health and safety of you, your children, and your pets.
Preventative Steps Include:
- Remove “standing water” to deter mosquitoes from laying eggs
- Be proactive with landscaping choices: mosquitoes love dark, humid places!
- Consider applying mosquito repellent to exposed skin – or wear sleeves and pants in highly infested areas
- Consult with a licensed pest control company to safety treat recreation zones
As a caution, beware of utilizing DIY mosquito repellents and treatments as some popular alternatives can be toxic to children and pets if handled improperly (ex. essential oils). Why risk the health of your family when you have our expert service sat your disposal?
