Prevention is key, and that’s especially true of mosquito control. When you have a problem with these pesky creatures at home, it’s time to call for help from a professional. There are always things you can do to help rid your lawn and home of mosquitoes, but sometimes it starts with a call to the professional. Pest control companies can help, and they can educate you on how to keep your lawn clean of mosquitoes, how to make them less likely to want to bother you, and how to make sure you have a smaller chance of being bitten and infected with one of the many diseases they can carry and transmit to humans.
How Control Companies Help
When you call a professional to help you rid your lawn of mosquitoes, they perform numerous tasks to keep your lawn safe and free of these irritating pests. These professionals know all there is to know about these bugs, and they’re present to help you learn how to prevent them at home. The first thing a company will do is spray your lawn and yard with a special treatment designed to kill mosquitoes and their eggs. Then they will educate you on prevention.
How to Prevent Mosquitoes
When a professional comes to your home to control these pests for you, they’ll offer a list of invaluable tips. This might include the following:
– Never leave standing water in any container in the lawn no matter how small
– Report any abandoned pools in your neighborhood
– Keep all water features running constantly
– Use mosquito fish in ponds and other water features
– Keep grass short
– Keep shrubs trimmed
– Keep window screens and door screens in great shape
– Dress appropriately when outdoors
Mosquitoes love standing water, and they love to breed where the water doesn’t move. Many homeowners do what they can to prevent this in their own lawn, but they still suffer from mosquitoes. This could be because a foreclosure, empty house, or other location in your neighborhood has a pool without anyone performing proper maintenance. If it’s sitting there filled with water, it could be breeding mosquitoes that affect the entire neighborhood.
Professional mosquito companies control issues in your home, but they can also provide you with the information you need to handle other problems. For example, they can provide you with a list of phone numbers to call to report abandoned pools at empty or foreclosed homes so you can keep your street safe. Your family’s safety is important, and keeping disease-ladden pests from destroying your home is one of the most important things you can do for the safety of your family.
