According to the World Health Organization, there are up to 500 million cases of mosquito-borne illnesses every year, worldwide. Of the people affected, 2.7 million will die every year. While most of these deaths do not happen in the US, the mosquito is considered by most specialists to be the most significant carrier of disease in history. Responsible for more deaths than any other animal, mosquitoes are often thought to be a nuisance to suburban backyards. However, recent outbreaks of West Nile Virus, Zika Virus and encephalitis have brought a renewed sense of purpose to mosquito extermination.
Mosquitoes are highly adaptive creatures that can reproduce just about anywhere. However, there are certain conditions that are conducive to the mosquito population. Many of which can be found in your back yard.
Uncirculated lake, pond, fountain, retention basin, birdbath, old tires, buckets, and similar areas are ideal places for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. The area of stagnant water does not need to be large to be a haven for mosquito reproduction. Once the eggs hatch, mosquitoes go through a series of water stages before becoming airborne. Areas of stagnant water are ideal for these stages since they remain largely undisturbed by weather and predators. After the airborne stage of their life is over, females will return to stagnant water to lay eggs before dying.
In order for mosquitoes to lay thrive, feed, fly and lay eggs, there needs to be a certain amount of moisture in the air. That is why humid areas of the country are so much more prone to mosquito infestations. Eradicating many of these moisture conditions on your property can also be the key to keeping these bothersuome bugs from biting your family and pets. Flowerbeds, rock holes, sprinkler heads that leak, and shady areas are typically more humid, making them an ideal place for mosquitoes to rest, live and reproduce.
Surprisingly, mosquitoes need rest. That is why they seek out surfaces that are away from the wind, ideally with higher levels of moisture, as resting sites. Our professional technicians will look for patio areas, gazeboes, porches, or decks that fit the bill for resting sites for mosquitoes and work to exterminate existing bugs and mitigate conditions for others to rest.

Our highly trained technicians will then treat potential surfaces that may serve as a resting site for mosquites.

We will also treat the perimeter of your home or commercial building, up to 50 ft away from the structure.
Next, we look at areas where you are most likely to have been bitten by mosquitoes. We treat these areas within 10 ft of the bite zone and up to 3 ft from ground level focusing on the most common places where mosquitoes rest after a blood meal and prepare to lay their eggs.
Finally, our technicians will apply a small amount of granular larvicide to the places on your property where mosquitoes lay eggs. We also treat ideal breeding grounds that may have stagnant water such as bird baths, ponds, and ditches.
As an optional step our qualified, trained technicians install a programmable misting machine to eliminate adult flying insects from around the home. This step may be necessary for areas that are experiencing high levels of infiltration.
