As the weather becomes cooler in late summer and early autumn, you will want to spend more time outside, but this is difficult when you have a large population of mosquitoes. No one wants to have ugly and itchy mosquito bites, but you can avoid this problem by having professional mosquito control services. Today, eliminating and controlling mosquitoes is imperative because several serious illnesses are transmitted by these insects, including:
• Zika fever
• Eastern equine encephalitis
• Yellow fever
Some of these conditions can lead to a lifetime of health problems, and in some cases, an individual can die from one of these diseases.
Remove Clutter From a Lawn to Prevent Breeding by Mosquitoes
As a property owner, there are several things that you can do to prevent infestations of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes breed and lay eggs on pools of stagnant water, and if you have a lawn that is covered with lawn care equipment or children’s toys, then these items can hold water. Throw away old tires, flowerpots and wading pools that will hold water where the mosquitoes will gather.
Have Lawns Misted With Chemicals
If you are outside without effective protection from mosquitoes, then you have a 50 percent chance of having a bite that could lead to the transmission of a disease. Rather than covering your skin with heavy layers of clothing or slathering on insect repellents, you can call a company that offers high-quality mosquito control with misting sprays. With a misting spray treatment outside of your home or business, you will notice an immediate reduction in mosquitoes, and the chemicals will also repel additional flying insects for several weeks.
Mosquito Exterminators Inspect a Property
While a mosquito exterminator is at a property, he can also inspect for the places where the insects can breed. You might have rain gutters that are filled with debris, leading to pools of water that will attract mosquitoes. Additional places where mosquitoes can breed include a building’s rooftop where there are indentations. If you have old tree stumps or decaying trees on your home’s lawn, then water will collect inside these items, providing a perfect place for female mosquitoes to lay eggs.
Have Routine Misting Services From Spring Until Autumn
When you contact a company that provides expert mosquito misting services, you don’t need to remain at home because the professionals work outside. The first mosquito misting will begin to eliminate adult mosquitoes right away, and depending the local weather conditions, you will notice fewer flying insects for several weeks. For the best control of mosquitoes, you should have routine misting services from early spring to late autumn.
