Mosquito season is back. Summer is here and the warm weather brings with it a lot of great things. BBQs, pool parties, and outdoor games to name a few. Unfortunately, the warmer weather also brings mosquitoes.
The long, wet winter, will likely make this a bad year for mosquitoes. A large number of water sources provide lots of places for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. While mosquitoes don’t live very long, they can mature from eggs to adult mosquitoes in just a few days. A single female can lay up to 100 eggs. To make matters worse, mosquitoes can carry a number of dangerous and deadly diseases.
There is one major thing you can do to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your property. That is to eliminate/reduce any standing water where they can lay their eggs. This includes puddles, buckets of water, or rain water that has collected in any sort of depression. It doesn’t take much water at all for an infestation of mosquitoes to start. Water in fountains and other water features should be treated.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop mosquitoes from coming onto your property from other locations. Because mosquitoes can find so many sources of water, it makes them very difficult to exterminate. Luckily, there is a solution.
Mosquito Treatment Service
Mosquitoes are sensitive to, and will avoid certain smells. Even better, these smells can be created with natural botanical oils. While it is near impossible to eliminate mosquitoes, they can be repelled from your home.
Gold Miner Pest Control uses a natural botanical repellent to create a barrier around your house that mosquitoes don’t want to cross. First, we fog the trees, bushes, and grass around your home leaving a coating that keeps mosquitoes away. We then spread water-activated botanical granules in grassy areas. This granule releases the botanical repellent every time you water your lawn. This service drastically reduced mosquitoes and is completely safe. Its safe for you, your family, and your pets.
In addition, we can also treat small water features, such as fountains, with a larvacide that kills off mosquito larva before they ever have a chance to turn into biting adult mosquitoes.
No more itchy mosquito bites, no more sprays and candles. Just a mosquito free summer.
