Spring to fall, the time of year to enjoy being outside. Picnics, barbeques, or just sitting around talking with friends. It’s what we look forward to all winter. Enter the Mosquito, she can make the best outing miserable. In addition, mosquitos are vectors of many diseases, West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue fever and yellow fever to name a few.
Most yards are great breeding grounds for the mosquito, any stagnant water, ponds, standing water in gutters, under downspouts, drainage ditches, marshes and water in tree holes. Once they start breeding we become a target, as they hunt for food they detect the carbon dioxide we exhale and the heat from our body. Then, bam!!! We soak ourselves with smelly, greasy repellants or the party moves indoors.
Hampton Roads Termite and Pest Control Inc. has a better idea. Our MOSQUITO CONTROL PROGRAM.
We cannot completely eliminate your mosquitoes, or the possible dangers they can cause, no one can. As a flying insect they can come in from anywhere, but what we can do is greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes that you have to deal with.
The program takes advantage of knowing the Mosquitoes habitat and habits. A careful inspection of your property, identifying problems, such as any standing water that can be eliminated, and educating you of unwanted conditions is the first step. After eliminating potential breeding sites, as much as possible, an effective program of fogging treatable resting and breeding areas can begin. Areas that cannot be misted or fogged such as fish ponds, bird baths, and drainage ditches can be treated by other means. Even though we can’t completely eliminate the problem we can make your outdoor experience much more comfortable.
Hampton Roads Termite and Pest Control Inc. can provide this service as an individual program or include this service with our general pest control services at a reduced rate. You work hard at creating an outdoor environment you can enjoy, call and let us make it possible.
