How To Avoid Mosquitoes In Stafford?

April 15, 2022 - Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are flying pests that exist in most parts of the world in thousands of different species. They are a pest that is known for being particularly irritating among those participating in outdoor activities during the warmer months. 

The females consume the blood of humans and animals, which provides them the needed protein to develop eggs. Mosquitoes are usually most prevalent in areas of standing water, thick vegetation, and excessive humidity levels. 

Pest Control In Stafford

A licensed pest controller knows how to repel mosquitoes outdoors, tricks to keep mosquitoes away, and has the equipment that is used in spraying for mosquitoes in your yard. Most professional service providers offer one-time or ongoing options for limiting the mosquito population on a property

Diseases Mosquitoes May Carry

What diseases do mosquitoes transmit as they travel among hosts? Mosquitoes are known for carrying the West Nile virus, the Zika virus, malaria, yellow fever, and many other harmful concerns. 

Best Mosquito Repellent

What are some common tricks to keep mosquitoes away? 

  • Apply an EPA-approved insect repellant such as DEET that has proven to be safe and effective against these pests. 
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and full-length pants to protect the skin from mosquitoes. 
  • Limit outdoor activity during the summer months during the hours of dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. 

Consulting with a pest control professional for mosquito prevention is always recommended. 

Remove Mosquito Attractants

Mosquitoes are attracted to properties that have sufficient standing water, which is the location where they place their eggs. Remove kiddie pools, large planters, tires, birdbaths, and other objects that hold water. Keep gutters and downspouts free of debris to ensure rainwater flows away from the structure. 

Invest In Professional Mosquito Control         

Avoid making the mistake that many property owners make by purchasing various sprays, fogging systems, and traps sold by online retailers and local home improvement stores. The majority of these options are ineffective and usually result in prolonged aggravation. A better option is to speak with a local pest control company that is best suited to produce excellent results.  

The professionals can answer questions like what diseases do mosquitoes transmit and know the possible dangers they pose. Experts are trained in properly spraying for mosquitoes in your yard, which also deters others from entering the area. Having fewer mosquitoes in your yard area with help ease the frustration associated with these pests and reduce the likelihood of contracting a mosquito-borne illness. 

We begin by performing a detailed inspection of the premises spanning roughly 50-feet around the exterior of the home. Our technician will seek to identify the extent of the problem and uncover any likely conditions, including excessive moisture or others that are breeding grounds. Among the tools that Viewpoint Pest Management Solutions uses is the In2Care Mosquito Trap system, which has proven to be a comprehensive solution. 

The In2Care Mosquito Trap has an inconspicuous appearance that resembles a flower pot and blends in with the natural environment. These devices are strategically placed, attracting mosquitoes and exposing them to larvicides and adulticides. The active agents adhere to the mosquito and are spread by the pest as they travel among others, any developing larvae and the water sources they use for laying eggs.
