One of the best parts of living in New England is enjoying a beautiful summer day in the backyard. When the grill is hot and the sun is shining, the last thing you want is to be warding off mosquitoes. However, once you notice these blood-sucking insects they have made a home somewhere in your yard. How can you protect your family from bites?
Mosquito Treatment Plans
When you contact Eliminate ‘Em Pest Control about your mosquito problem, the first step is an evaluation. One of our professional mosquito control technicians will perform an inspection to look for the reasons why mosquitoes have infested your property. Common areas for breeding include standing water in tires, gutters and buckets.
Once we uncover the cause of the mosquito issue, we develop a customized plan to help eradicate it. We help remove sources of standing water and offer tips on how to keep the property well-maintained, so mosquitoes have nowhere to breed. We can also apply EPA-approved insecticides to vegetation that may be used as a shelter for the mosquitoes.
Why Are Mosquitoes Present?
If you light citronella candles and use bug spray, you may be wondering why mosquitoes are attracted to your property. Unfortunately, these protective measures are often too little too late when an infestation already exists. Stagnant water is the number one place for mosquitoes to breed – you may not realize it, but your grounds could be filled with it:
- Old tires
- Clogged gutters
- Buckets and cans
- Kiddie pools
- Potted plants
- Damp wood
- Garbage cans
Mosquitoes can also find breeding sites inside the home:
- Shower and sink drains
- Floor drains (i.e. laundry room)
- Pets’ water dishes
- Sump pumps
- A/C drip pans
- Indoor potted plants
The licensed mosquito control technicians at Eliminate’ Em provide fast, professional and courteous service in your area!
