Mosquitoes are the most significant & dangerous vector of disease in history and responsible for more human deaths than any other animal. Mosquitoes are well adapted for urban life and are a common nuisance pest in residential backyards. In recent years, the media has significantly increased the public’s mosquito awareness due to West Nile virus, Zika virus and encephalitis outbreaks.

Begins with a customer interview, followed by a thorough visual inspection of the entire property for proper pest identification and determination of a course of action.
Using a power sprayer or backpack mister our technician treats protected vertical and inverted surfaces of dense vegetation up to a height of 6 ft. We also treat the perimeter up to 50 ft away from the structure.
Next we address and treat post bite sites within 10 ft of the bite zone and up to 3 ft from ground level focusing around doors and windows, common places where mosquitoes rest after a blood meal as they prepare to lay eggs.
We apply a small amount of granular larvicide to areas where moisture collects and mosquitoes lay eggs, examples include tree holes, potted plants and sprinkler heads. We also treat suspected breeding sites like ponds, ditches and fountains.
As an optional step or depending on pest pressure we install a programmable misting machine to eliminate adult flying insects from around the home.
