As spring weather returns, so too do pests. The resurgence of mosquitoes, in particular, can be enough to put a damper on all of your loved outdoor activities. Don’t let an aversion to itchy bites keep you from spending quality time around the grill or beside the pool, this spring and summer. Masters Pest Control offers tools and tips for controlling mosquito populations on your Tri-State Property.
Mosquitoes have the ability to breed in any place where there’s standing water, no matter the amount. The first step you can take in protecting yourself and loved ones is to check your property for standing water that has collected in pools, tarps, or anything that could hold water long enough for mosquitoes to hatch. Performing yard chores such as trimming shrubbery and cleaning you roof gutters also help keep these pests away.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) acknowledges 12 different mosquito species that carry illnesses humans are susceptible to, with some carrying deadly diseases like the West Nile virus. Mosquitos are already a nuisance, but these diseases make their presence dangerous. The CDC also offers more information about mosquitoes and the illnesses they carry. Read more here.
Here are a few ways to control mosquito presence in and outside of your home:
- Wear long sleeved clothing to reduce irritating bites
- Consider placing screens on your windows and doors to prevent entry
- Use an EPA-approved repellent (Always read the labels!)
- Inspect outdoor areas, such as garages or patios, for standing water or other signs of a breeding ground
Masters Pest Control’s experts offer a remedy to your mosquito issues in the form of the In2Care Mosquito Control program. In2Care controls mosquito populations with discrete traps while remaining pet friendly and safe for environmentally beneficial insects like bees or butterflies.
In2Care program works by placing traps around your property to attract the pests. Mosquitoes are exposed to the active ingredient and spread it to their breeding sites upon leaving the trap. The mosquito larvae are also exposed to the ingredient, producing effective mosquito population control in your yard.
