Yes, you can do both!

As the warm air settles in, so do a variety of insects.  Mosquitoes are a common issue and have become more concerning with more carrying the Zika virus, the West Nile virus and even encephalitis.  People are taking active steps attempting to significantly reduce the mosquito population. It is important that we be aware how this may affect other resources, such as bees.

Bees play an important role to many crops. Not only do they produce honey, but they pollinate many fruits and vegetables.  Without the bees, farmers can experience a drop in supply which may result in not being able to produce any crops at all.

Many mosquito insecticides are harmful to bees.  The worker bees venture outside of the hive to collect pollen and nectar. They can be exposed to pesticides that have been sprayed directly on the flowers and plants which they forage.  By taking the necessary steps, we can work together as a community to fight the annoying and dangerous mosquitoes while protecting our other precious environmental resources.

Mother Nature Network has an article called How To Protect Bees While Getting Rid of Mosquitoes.  We advise that beekeepers and pollinators work with the right professionals to maintain their colonies while effectively reducing the mosquito population.

Mosquito Squad is a reputable company that has been a leader in this industry..  In addition to the Standard Barrier treatment is an All Natural treatment.  Mosquito Squad is sensitive to beekeepers and pollinators.  We treat mosquitoes like foes and bees and other beneficial insects like the friends that they are.
