MOSQUITO ABATEMENT PROGRAM
These little pests love to ruin a good backyard barbecue or swimming party. They leave people swatting left and right, and away from any food.
Mosquitos cause itchiness, red bumps, hives, and allergic reactions. And mosquitoes can make you sick with dangerous illnesses, such as West Nile virus, Zika Virus, and malaria.
The purpose of the mosquito abatement program is to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home. No abatement program can promise completely eliminating the little buggers, but we can drastically slash the mosquito population around your home and office.
You’re at the top of the food chain. Start living like it. Let us kill and prevent mosquitoes.
An effective program doesn’t just target the mosquitoes flying amongst us. It also hits the source — where they live and breed. It begins with an inspection of your property for popular breeding spots — stagnant water areas, dense vegetation, and areas with poor circulation. Then we target those areas.
In conjunction with an effective mosquito abatement program, a couple suggestions for minimizing the mosquito activity:
- Keep grass cut short and shrubbery well-trimmed around the house.
- Irrigate lawns and gardens carefully to prevent formation of standing water.
- Eliminate stagnant water around your home.
- Dispose of old cans, jars, tires, plant pots, buckets, drums, bottles, plastic sheeting, etc.
- Inspect rain gutters and clean leaves and other debris.
- Stack wheelbarrows, tubs, buckets, barrels, boats, etc. upside down.
- Empty stagnant birdbaths, water features, wading pools, etc. at least once per week.
- Properly maintain swimming pools to discourage development of mosquitos.
- Fill in tree holes and hollow stumps or low places in the yard.
- Keep drains, ditches, and culverts clean of weeds and trash.
- Cover trash containers to keep out rainwater.
- Repair leaks or fill puddles around outdoor faucets and air conditioner vents.
- Eliminate seepage from cisterns, cesspools, and septic tanks.
- Make sure your home, porch and patio have tight-fitting screens.
