How Well Do Mosquito Control Services Work

Do Mosquito Control Services Work

With summer coming in just a few months, everyone is already gearing up to spend more time outdoors. Spending time outside relaxing or having fun should not be hindered by mosquitos. Mosquitoes are more than an annoyance; they can also pose as a health threat. Mosquitos are actually responsible for more deaths than all the world wars combined due to the diseases they can carry. To protect yourself during the summer, the important question to ask is: do mosquito control services work?

Do Mosquito Control Services Work in Any Yard?

When applied by a professional, mosquito control can work in any yard effectively. Your pest control tech will know how to treat your yard to give you the most protection. Not only will they treat your entire yard, but they will also spot-treat areas where mosquitoes would be more prone to land and breed. Any area of your yard with standing water or is damp and moist, like a mulched area, untended birdbaths, wheelbarrows, or buckets, can attract mosquitos. Treating these areas and regularly making sure you don’t have any containers holding water will help reduce the mosquito population significantly.

Do Mosquito Control Services Work For The Entire Summer Season?

Treatments can last around four weeks, depending on the amount of rainfall. For the best mosquito control, you will need to treat your yard once a month during peak mosquito season. Your pest control service will be able to recommend how often you need to treat your yard based on the size of your yard and how many areas will attract mosquito breeding if left untreated.

Do Mosquito Control Services Work After a Major Storm?

After a tropical storm or hurricane passes through the area, it will be necessary to retreat your yard. The excessive water associated with these storms is perfect for mosquitoes to breed. After a major storm, try to remove all standing water from your yard and have it treated for mosquito control as soon as possible.

Does Treating My Yard Really Work?

Many people believe that treating their yards for mosquitos will not help because mosquitoes could fly into the yard from other areas. Mosquitoes cannot fly long distances. They land often and do not travel far from where they were born. If you treat your yard, it will help reduce or eliminate mosquitoes that are close to your home.
