Warm weather has returned, and so have outdoor activities. Yet, those activities are often right where mosquitos are lurking, ready to make a summertime snack of you and your loved ones. Though it may seem like a simple solution, mosquito fogging is far from an effective method for publicly dealing with mosquitos. Learning to prevent these pests properly will help protect your family from potentially dangerous diseases and health conditions.
What is Mosquito Fogging?
Mosquito Fogging is the process of driving a truck-mounted sprayer to utilize an adulticide mosquito spray that attaches itself to adult insects and kills them by stopping their brains from functioning correctly. Unfortunately, these do nothing for the larva that are in standing water. This means that mosquito fogging is only a temporary solution. Most treatments only work for 72 hours, before the next generation of mosquitoes reach adulthood and start the cycle again.
Effective Mosquito Control Methods
Ballwin mosquito control should be maintained throughout the season. From removing still standing water and limiting places that harbor the insects, such as overgrowth, to utilizing effective prevention methods. These methods include personal protective sprays, yard control that could be harmful to local pollinators, or a professional service that will utilize safe mosquito control methods.
