Mosquito control is super important when it comes to creating a safe environment on your property. We do so much to ensure our house is safe, everything from sprinkler systems and smoke detectors to security systems and video cameras, but what about the outside? How do you ensure that you, your family, and your guests are safe in your backyard?
At Mosquito Authority we know that mosquitoes can not only ruin your fun by leaving itchy welts all over your body, but they transmit some of the most dangerous diseases, from West Nile to Zika. This is why it is incredibly important to include mosquito control to create a full property defense, inside and outside.
Mosquito control is based on the three-week life cycle of the typical mosquito. This 21-day span takes a mosquito from larvae stage to full adult. It is commonly known that mosquitoes breed around water. What you may not know is this could be as small as a bottle cap full! This is why the first step in any mosquito control plan is to eliminate standing water on your property.
After all potential standing water sources are eliminated, a barrier application is applied to the surroundings of your property. This will take care of any mosquito that makes it into your yard and stops to breed or rest.
This treatment is repeated every 21 days to ensure we continue keeping you mosquito-free, by again walking around your property to eliminate standing water, and creating a barrier to control the adult mosquitoes that may have wandered into your property and keep any more from making their way in.
When it comes to mosquito control, unfortunately, there isn’t a one-time fix. To stay in control of these pests, you must keep up with their life cycle.
