St. Louis Sits Near the Top of the List in Mosquito Activity
In the spring of 2018 St. Louis was ranked number 6 for mosquito activity among United States metropolitan cities. That is twenty steps up from the year before. Talk about races nobody wants to win!
No city wants to be known as the one with the most mosquitoes, but as temperatures rise and rainfall is heavy, no matter where you are the little boogers are hard to escape. In fact, to live completely mosquito-free you are going to have to move to Iceland or Antarctica. Don’t worry; we have a better solution. Keep reading.
Does the Rise in Mosquito Activity Have to Make Us Miserable?
There is no doubt that having more mosquitoes is a less than the perfect scenario with an added health concern since disease cases from mosquitoes have tripled in the last 15 years according to the CDC. However, that doesn’t mean that we have to live a life of two seasons: winter and mosquito.
As the weather warms and the days get longer, preparation is the key. Mosquito control begins at home with the 7Ts of mosquito control. Keeping your yard trimmed, clean, and free from standing water keeps the population from coming to your yard to reproduce. But at #6 on the list you know that is not going to be enough.
Professional mosquito service is what will make all the difference. At the Squad, we service your yard on a continuous schedule all season long. Starting early in the season is by far the best choice you can make. It’s the difference of keeping the pests out of your yard vs. removing the pests from your yard. I’m sure you can guess which is easier.
Our time-released barrier treatment lasts for three weeks when we will return to keep you protected. It eliminates 85-90% of mosquitoes so you can enjoy your yard whenever you want. There is simply no reason to let mosquitoes run you out of the comfort of your own outdoor spaces. You’ll most likely forget all about that mosquito ranking number after enjoying the entire spring and summer outside with your family and friends thanks to Mosquito Squad.
**And don’t forget that by eliminating the mosquitoes in your yard you are also doing your part to lower the infestation of the entire community. It takes all our efforts to keep the mosquito population in West St. Louis at bay.
