Everyone here in Victoria TX knows we have had a real scorcher of a summer. In fact, it’s been so incredibly hot outside that one of nature’s oldest and most adaptable insects, the mosquito, has gone without eating. It’s simply been too hot for the mosquito population to stay active. With cooler weather coming upon us, and the everyday precipitation (it feels like), the mosquito population is going to become more active; this is especially true for their key feeding times which are dusk and dawn.
According to a recent article by KTRE9, “A break in the hot weather could mean that more mosquitoes start buzzing around you…Going from hot and dry to cooler with chances of rain means more biters are also on the radar. The two common types of mosquitoes in…Texas could carry diseases like chikingunya or West Nile virus”. With West Nile virus usually spiking during August, September and October, this is not the greatest time to see a spike in mosquito activity and biting. The more mosquitoes you come into contact with, the more likely you are to encounter one which carries a disease.
This same article states, “The best thing you can do is try to avoid being out when they’re out and those times are usually dusk and dawn when they’re out on patrol”. We at Mosquito Squad of Victoria agree with this statement, but we feel you shouldn’t have to bend over backwards just to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes. We believe you should be able to enjoy your yard no matter what time of day it is or what time of year it is. By applying our barrier spray to your yard, you will be mosquito free for 21 days. If the mosquito population is really out of control, we will even come before the 21 days are up and spray your yard again. We truly are the company to rely on in order to make sure you don’t get a single bite from these pesky bloodsucking pests and we have a multitude of ways to keep you from coming into contact with them.
