As we have discussed at length, standing water is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. However, our particular situation is quite different and presents many challenges. With the recent catastrophic flooding in and around Columbia SC, standing water will remain a problem for the foreseeable future. Add to the amount of standing and stagnated water, the timing will also present challenges as the mosquitoes are much more active and aggressive as they scramble to feed in time to lay their eggs before the temperatures get too low.
According to a recent Jacksonville, NC news article, “…expect the worst of the mosquitoes to be next week when all of the eggs laid this week become adults of a wide range of species, one of which is the largest in the United States”. With the recent copious amounts of precipitation we’ve experienced, it seems that following the “5 T’s” may not be enough within itself. The application of our microencapsulated barrier spray solution has a delayed release and is less susceptible to becoming diluted by water than other mosquito control companies in Columbia SC.
Now that the vast swath of flood waters have receded or evaporated, it’s prime time for heavy mosquito activity. By being proactive rather than reactive, you can ensure that your yard does not become a mosquito breeding ground.
