Mosquito

Mosquitoes often seem like nothing more than a nuisance, but behind their irritating buzz and itchy bites lies a much more serious concern: the need for effective mosquito control. The biggest reason to keep these pesky creatures in check is disease prevention.

Some mosquitoes are harmful and can spread viruses like West Nile, dengue, Zika, and parasites like malaria. Other mosquitoes bother people and are considered “nuisance” mosquitoes. Nuisance mosquitoes bite people, but don’t spread germs. Of the over 200 types of mosquitoes in the United States and US territories, about 12 types spread germs.

Local government departments and mosquito control professionals track the numbers and types of mosquitoes in an area and the germs they may be spreading. When infected adult mosquitoes are spreading germs to people, acting quickly can stop further spread and prevent people from getting sick. Professionals share prevention information with the public and use multiple methods at the same time to kill mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes (source: Center for Disease Control and Prevention).

Mosquito treatment is usually an integrated effort involving source reduction plus the use of chemical control products when needed. Since mosquitoes develop in water, source reduction targets and eliminates water sources favorable for mosquito breeding. While source reduction is the more effective long-term approach to mosquito treatment, the mosquito treatment plan may require using chemical products to supplement source reduction.

Grizz Pest technicians will look for conditions that invite mosquitos, tackle current infestations, and stop their life cycle to prevent future invaders. Since every building or home is different, your mosquito treatment plan will be tailored to fit your situation. Schedule your appointment today!
