Mosquito season is officially upon us. While most backyard barbecues won’t kick-off for a few more months, mosquitos are already gearing up to give us a run for our money this year. American Pest Control has helped customers take back their yards with our “Nosquito” service for 50 years.
Mosquito season around here lasts from March through October. We start servicing early to set a great foundation for the rest of the year. When we treat the adults before they fully emerge for the year, we can help ensure that they never do. This is also a great time for a full inspection. Prevention is the best form of mosquito control. Our expert technicians will look for breeding sites and communicate how they can be eliminated.
We offer two options for mosquito reduction. Our traditional mosquito reduction program includes a visit once per month for eight months plus follow-up treatments whenever you need them. A certified technician will look for any standing water during those visits since it is a prime location for mosquitoes to breed. This could include outdoor toys, pots and gardening equipment, tires, and other debris; essentially anywhere where an inch or so of water can puddle. Did you know even a bottle cap full of water is enough room for mosquitoes to breed? When we eliminate standing water, we eliminate breeding grounds around your yard and reduce mosquito populations. From here, your technician will begin the treatment. They will use a backpack blower to spray mosquito resting areas and put a product out to eliminate larva where the water cannot be removed. The technician will never spray flowering plants or edible vegetation. This protects pollinators, non-target pests, and you!
Our second option for mosquito reduction is our Botanical Mosquito Program. This service includes two monthly visits. It begins the same way, with the thorough inspection, followed by a treatment. The difference lies in the product used. American Pest Control uses Essentria, a rosemary essential-oil based, organic product.
This is labeled as having no effect on non-target species. This product is applied with the same caution and care as traditional products; however, the residual is shorter. This means it will not linger as long and needs to reapplied more often. Whether you opt for traditional or botanical mosquito reduction, one thing is for sure: Mosquitos won’t know the difference. Once they hear American Pest Control is on the scene, they will know to hang out somewhere else.
