At Mosquito Squad of Central Massachusetts, we pride ourselves in the effectiveness of our traditional barrier treatment. The special time-released formula creates an invisible barrier around your property line to eliminate mosquitoes that enter your space for up to 3 weeks. With up to 90% elimination of mosquitoes, you can enjoy your property with significant mosquito population reduction. With that being said, lowering the mosquito population in the first place with some preventative measures makes that 90% reduction even better. Eliminating 90% of 100 gives you more pleasant outdoor living than eliminating 90% of 10,000.
THE 5 TS OF MOSQUITO CONTROL ON YOUR PROPERTY
We’ve shared oodles of information about eliminating standing water on your property to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds. Without water, mosquito eggs cannot develop into larvae, pupae, and eventually blood-sucking adult mosquitoes. While you our valued client is well versed in Tipping, Tossing, Turn Over, Remove Tarps and Treating your property, you may still have a larger starting mosquito population nearby than you’d like. Why? Most mosquitoes have a flight range of about 1-3 miles. Although, container breeders may be limited to 300 feet, just shy of the length of a football field. So you see, in a suburban setting, neighbor’s water-filled buckets could be affecting your yard too.
PUBLIC AWARENESS OF MOSQUITO BREEDING
While we don’t want to encourage any neighborhood wars, if you know neighboring standing water is affecting you, you can start by politely sharing important information about standing water & mosquitoes. If that doesn’t get you far, you may need to call your local Health Department to handle a neighbor with mosquito breeding water issues. A recent story all the way in Carolina Beach could happen anywhere. A neighborhood noticed the mosquito problem was worse than normal and finally figured out that a perfect breeding ground existed in the debris that had collected in a neighboring back yard. While the 30 water filled containers in this backyard was certainly an extreme situation, a single container can yield thousands of mosquitoes in a few weeks’ time.
Teaming up with neighbors and friends can make a big difference in the local mosquito population. Remind those around you to follow the 5 Ts and keep their yard clean of anything that could promote the growth of the mosquito population.
