There's nothing like a bunch of mosquito bites to ruin a perfectly good day outside. The itching, and scratching, it's all a huge annoyance – and that's from just one measly mosquito. Now imagine an entire infestation on your property; it's a real nightmare.
Aside from the nuisance, mosquitoes pose a real threat to your health and well-being. As vector-pests, they can spread all kinds of mosquito-borne viral diseases, like dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, malaria, West Nile, and Zika virus, among others.
The other thing to keep in mind is that mosquito populations are difficult to control. They rapidly lay their eggs in remote breeding sites, and they've even become resistant to certain chemical insecticides. The bottom line is that mosquitoes are dangerous, and they're hard to manage without help from pest professionals.
Here at Hill City Pest Control, we provide comprehensive mosquito control and prevention services for local property owners. Our approach is all-encompassing, taking into consideration each stage of the mosquito's life cycle so we can stop the problem at its earliest stages.
Our mosquito control process hits all stages of growth to effectively reduce the mosquito populations around your property.
The treatments are administered in three steps, as follows:
After we finish treating your property, we come back to perform treatments every 30 or 45 days to keep you protected. We do this during mosquito season, which is typically March through September. Our mosquito treatments protect residential properties from these parasitic vectors. In addition to our customized services, we also offer In2Care Mosquito Traps.
In2care Mosquito Traps are known for their effectiveness and sustainability. They're multi-impact tools that target larvae as well as adult mosquitoes. The In2Care traps consist of durable plastic, and the way they work is they use water with a luring odor to attract mosquitoes.
When mosquitoes make contact with the trap, they become contaminated with a larvicide and a fungus. They then carry this larvicide back to their breeding sites, and it kills off mosquito larvae and other exposed mosquitoes. From there, the adult mosquito that unknowingly delivered the larvicide dies within a few days before getting a chance to transmit any diseases.
Here are some more things to know about In2Care traps:
After placing the traps, we come back for follow-up services to ensure you are protected in the future. We maintain the traps during our regular return visits by refilling and reactivating them once a month. Our goal is to manage all mosquito activity around your property, effectively eliminating the issues from the inside out.
