Expert Mosquito Control In Durham, NC
One of the most devastating pests property owners can face in the Durham area are mosquitoes. Because of our warm weather during most of the year, mosquitoes are a frequent concern for commercial and residential properties.
Mosquitoes reproduce rapidly and are difficult to eliminate once a full infestation has occurred. For this and other reasons, professional mosquito control in Durham is often the only viable solution for.
What Makes Mosquitoes Dangerous?
Mosquitoes feed on human and animal blood and leave behind itchy welts when they bite. However, the itching is just one possible issue when it comes to their bites. Mosquitoes are known to transmit a wide range of illnesses including but not limited to the West Nile virus, eastern equine encephalitis, and dengue fever.
Unfortunately, these illnesses don't affect people in the same manner, making it impossible for doctors to provide a standard treatment. As such, it's always a good idea to pay close attention to potential mosquito infestations and focus on mosquito control to remain safe.
Our Mosquito Control Process
Our team believes in providing effective and eco-friendly solutions that help you get back to mosquito-free living. Before we get to work, we perform an inspection to identify where they're nesting along with hot spots.
After the inspection, we begin our treatment. This treatment works not only for mosquitoes but also for ticks, fleas, and chiggers. We use a backpack fogging treatment monthly from April to September. During treatment, we focus on:
- Shaded areas
- Standing water (Using IGR - Insect Growth Regulator)
If desired, we also provide our mosquito treatment as a one-time service for a special event.
Remain Protected With These Tips
Sometimes, the best way to maintain proper mosquito control in addition to professional services is to take steps toward making your property less friendly for these troublesome pests. Some of our best tips include:
- Invest in lawn care.
- Remove all sources of standing water.
- Make sure you replace all broken or torn vent covers and screens.
- Practice gutter maintenance.
- Consider using plants like lemongrass to repel mosquitoes.
