Mosquitos can be a real pain, literally, so we want to help get rid of them for good.
We have all had those moments where we’re enjoying a day outside with our family and all of a sudden, you can’t stop itching your skin. Although there could be many reasons for the itch, chances are you’ve been bitten by a mosquito. Usually found near water, mosquito bites can be incredibly painful and can even carry disease in some circumstances.
Why Do Mosquitos Bite & Why Is It Bad?
Female mosquitos need blood to survive and breed, so they’re quite literally out for blood. Mosquitos reproduce extremely quickly, making it really hard to completely get rid of a mosquito infestation. Their bites can feel like a sharp tiny stab, and can cause great inflammation in the skin along with an insufferable itch that feels impossible to find relief from. Along with the discomfort mosquito bites bring, they can also carry a pathogen that causes malaria, West Nile virus and encephalitis viruses complex - all dangerous diseases that need to be avoided.
How Can You Prevent Mosquito Bites?
Wearing a high-quality mosquito repellant is definitely one of the best ways to prevent bites whilst out in nature. Make sure that you’re thoroughly covered and reapply regularly throughout the day. Still water can be a breeding ground for mosquitos so where possible, be on the watch for the pests and steer clear if you see a swarm nearby.
How Can On Target Pest Control Remove Mosquitos?
Typically we start with an aggressive approach towards the living, adult mosquitos. Removing the majority of the threat is the first step in removing the problem altogether. Mosquitos do breed very quickly however, so the next step is finding the breeding sites and removing them as much as possible, to prevent more mosquitos from coming. We can use a combination of highly effective treatments suited for you and your mosquito infestation specifics.
How Can I Stop Mosquitos From Coming Back?
Once you’ve got rid of a severe mosquito issue, how do you stop them from coming back again? Eliminating the places that they’re most comfortable should be your priority. Still water is the number one location that is attractive to mosquitos, so regular drainage and adding running water is a good solution for those areas where you need water. If you have vegetation growing on your property, make sure it’s trimmed so mosquitos can’t hide and breed in there ready to pounce when they see some fresh skin.
Mosquitos are very hard to manage, though with professional help, we can remove the issue after identifying the problem areas on your property. Contact On Target Pest Control to discuss what we can do to help you today.
