Benefits Of Professional Mosquito Control Service

July 25, 2017

Just in case you may have missed it, we have mosquitoes here in West Chester. And, let's be honest, there are only a handful of people who would say, "Boy am I glad these mosquitoes showed up to this cookout." The rest of us are in agreement. Every outdoor activity is better without mosquitoes. So, what can you do about them? Most people turn to personal protection. They spray mosquito repellent all over themselves and their kids and call it good. If this is your strategy, we'd like you to consider another alternative.

If you're going to be going somewhere away from your home and you know there are going to be mosquitoes there, mosquito repellent is one of the most powerful weapons in your arsenal. But, there is a better option if you'll be in your backyard. Not only is putting on repellent an inconvenience, it is probably not a good idea to expose yourself to those chemicals on a daily basis.

There are some things you can do in your backyard to reduce mosquitoes. You can remove clutter that collects water, fix leaky spigots and obstructed gutters, and address areas on your property where still water is allowed to accumulate. But, this also falls short of addressing the problem.

The best way to reduce mosquitoes in your backyard is by signing up for professional mosquito control service. Here are three reasons why:

  • A professional will apply EPA-approved products to all of the hiding places mosquitoes use during the day. This spray destroys the mosquitoes that are already in these places but also works to kill mosquitoes for a while after. And, when you kill a mosquito, that mosquito is not only going to stop biting you, it will stop making more mosquitoes. A single mosquito can lay between 100 and 200 eggs. Every mosquito that dies in your yard makes a big impact in your neighborhood.

  • A professional knows all of the many places mosquitoes breed, and strategies for properly addressing them.

  • A professional can treat standing water with larvicide if the water source cannot be removed or it is a water source you don't want to have removed.

If you've never tried mosquito reduction service, we encourage you to give it a try. While no two properties are the same and we can't guarantee that you won't see any mosquitoes, we can guarantee that you'll have fewer mosquitoes--a lot fewer mosquitoes. We can also tell you that we have customers who absolutely love their service. Give it a shot and see for yourself what a difference it can make.
