Do you ever find yourself in a situation thinking, “Darn, I should’ve been working on that earlier?” It’s a scenario we’ve all experienced, but there are some things that are too important to forget. Mosquito control is on that list. Despite what you might be thinking, mosquito control is a process that is important to always keep in the back of your mind. Even though we will soon be in the depths of winter, warm weather is always closer than expected, and this is how mosquitoes get a head start on breeding within your yard’s boundaries. With the gradual growth of disease-spreading mosquitoes across America, it is essential that you install the necessary defenses to keep mosquitoes away from you and your family.
Portsmouth mosquito control and protection should never be an afterthought.
Although mosquito-borne diseases are typically isolated to very hot, very humid regions, our changing climate has made the South and Northeastern United States much more habitable for mosquitoes that are known to carry nasty diseases like the Zika virus. As if the unsightly, itchy welts that result from mosquito bites weren’t enough, dangerous viruses and diseases are now a reality in our region. That’s why it is so important to be mindful of the seasons and the threats that come with warmer weather. Mosquitoes and their terrestrial counterparts, ticks, are nothing to mess with, and they will not wait for you to be prepared. However, you can be.
If you live around the area of Portsmouth, mosquito control options are abundant with the help of Mosquito Squad. Our most popular service, a border protection treatment, involves misting a solution around your property line that acts as an invisible wall against mosquitoes. It is not impervious, but you will observe the mosquito population in your yard shrink by 85 – 90%, and the defenses last for up to 21 days.
Furthermore, we offer an natural treatment using essential oils that has a similar, but slightly reduced, efficacy in comparison to our original formula. Our services also include treatments over the spring and summer holidays to ensure you return to a welcoming home, not one that is brimming with mosquitoes. Whichever route you decide to take, we are confident that our treatment options will provide the necessary defenses against potentially dangerous mosquitoes and ticks.
