Mosquito Control – Are These Items Effective?

Every year without fail, mosquitoes reemerge with a vengeance. Ravenous after hatching from their eggs, mosquitoes always return in vast numbers that are difficult to calculate. Although we have plans to enjoy the outdoors this summer, mosquitoes are a huge roadblock between us and outdoor activities. Sure, you can still go outside while mosquitoes are rampant, but there is very little to enjoy when swarms of these insects decide they would like to sample your blood. This is an unfortunate reality we face in the Northeast every year, and things are only expected to get worse. Although these changes are largely imperceptible to us, our climate is gradually warming. Warm weather never feels like a bad thing, but as spring becomes warmer earlier, mosquitoes will also begin to emerge, which allows them to have a longer breeding season than usual. More time to breed means more mosquitoes and less freedom for us to enjoy the outdoors.

New Rochelle mosquito control is very important

Mosquito control has become increasingly popular for such reasons in our region, but some “solutions” are really snake oil. Deceptive marketing practices have made it seem like small electronic devices and similar innovations will keep you defended against mosquitoes, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. For example, what do you imagine mosquito control looks like? For many, mosquito control takes the form of aromatic tiki torches, bug zappers, and even clip-on devices you might see someone wearing on the golf course. While these devices might eliminate a mosquito here and there, each of these items is treating the symptoms, rather than the root cause. The sad reality is that mosquitoes are incredibly resilient simply due to their enormous populations, but there are real solutions that can help.

For at-home protection, yard spray is your best bet. Mosquitoes will try to breed wherever they can, and chances are they know a few spots in your yard that are good for raising young. Furthermore, mosquitoes are highly mobile and can go from yard to yard looking for a meal. Yard spray is a great method to help defend against this mosquito behavior. If you are away from your yard, DEET spray for the skin and permethrin-treated clothing are the best ways to keep mosquitoes from biting you.
