Year after year, mosquitoes are becoming more and more of a threat here in America. More cases of mosquito-borne illness are being found, and homeowners everywhere are seeking ways to keep mosquitoes as far from their properties as possible. With threats like the Zika virus, West Nile, malaria, and yellow fever, it only seems logical. Let’s take a look at ways you as a homeowner can keep mosquitoes off of your property, and why they may be there in the first place.
Factors That Attract Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes are attracted to a number of things, some are a bit harder to control than others. For instance, did you know that mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide you breath out? We understand this is by no mean a factor you can control. Along with this mosquitoes are also attracted to sweat, body temperature, and crazy enough even blood type. Finally, and this is a big one, mosquitoes are attracted to moisture. In fact, it’s where they breed. This is where we get into where you may be unintentionally giving mosquitoes a way to thrive on your property.
The Biggest Mistake Homeowners Make
If you have mosquitoes on your property, they had to come from somewhere. That somewhere is any area where water has been allowed to be stagnant. If you have water pooling up on or around your property, mosquitoes have a place to breed and thrive. Reducing and removing these sources is the best thing you can do to keep mosquitoes populations to a minimum around your home.
How Professional Mosquito Control Works & Why It’s Worth It
Mosquitoes are a constant threat that requires a good amount of attention. Here at Innovative, we offer Mosquito treatments in two ways, single service, and seasonal service. If you are planning on having an outdoor gathering and would rather not have mosquitoes around ruining the fun, you can have Innovative come out and treat your property with something called mosquito mist. This will not only drastically reduce the number of mosquito eggs found around your property, but it will also greatly deter mosquitoes on the day of your event as well.
Our second option is seasonal service. Meaning we will make sure your mosquito prevention stays active year round. If mosquitoes are the last thing you want on your property, call the professionals here at Innovative today.
