Dowagiac Mosquito Control
Better Options for Mosquito Treatment
In Dowagiac, you’re surrounded by nature and known statewide for Dowagiac Wood’s spectacular display of wild flowers. The Michigan Nature Association calls it “the largest woodland of virgin soil in Michigan. Never plowed, planted or grazed, it retains its original natural diversity, as it illustrates how forests looked when the first settlers arrived.”
At Mosquito Squad of Southwest and South Central Michigan, we’re jealous of your proximity to such untapped beauty; but more than that, we want you to be able to enjoy any and all outdoor adventures this summer, whether it be hiking on trails in the Dowagiac or Rudolphi Woods, or barbecuing in your own backyard.
If you and your family love to be outdoors but hate the fact that when you step outside you are targeted by mosquitoes, ticks, and other no-see-ums then call us. We’re a locally owned and operated pest control and protection company and we cover the Dowagiac area and all of South Central Michigan!
Standing Water: A Mosquito’s Invitation into Dowagiac Yards
Mosquitoes thrive in Dowagiac yards that have standing water in them. Importantly, mosquitoes have four stages of life: egg, larval, pupal, and adult stages. A mosquito needs water to survive during the first three stages of its life. Importantly, mosquitoes also use water to reproduce during their adult stage. So, having sitting water around your home is almost the same as inviting mosquitoes to move in!
Common sources of standing water that mosquitoes love include:
- Discarded tires
- Empty plant pottery
- Storm drains
- Clogged rain gutters
- Wading pools
- Dog dishes
To prevent water from gathering in receptacles and attracting mosquitoes, we recommend removing small items that collect water from your yard. For larger items that are harder to relocate, we suggest tipping them over during the rainy season. Finally, if your yard has tarps, we recommend removing them from your yard because they could be causing water to collect in unseen areas. When you have a member of our team come to your home, we’ll be happy to help you identify potential sources of water in your yard and help you find a solution to remove them.
