If you have ever lived in or visited a state with a hot, humid climate such as Florida, you know that you will not just be contending with the heat and sticky feeling you get from the humidity. You will also have to deal with the insect population that develops, grows, and thrives in moisture-rich climates. One such creature is the ever-annoying mosquito.
Youth and adult mosquitoes feast on warm-blooded animals, and that most especially includes humans. Feeling the stinging bite of a mosquito may not be particularly painful, but it is certainly obnoxious to know that the bite will soon turn into an itchy welt for a couple of days. There is also the potential that the mosquito which bit you and took a small amount of your blood also infected you with a deadly virus such as Malaria or the Zika virus. They can also spread diseases and infections to your furry friends, so it is important to employ effective mosquito control methods at your home and on your property.
When you live and work in Florida, you are almost certainly going to have to contend with mosquitoes at some point or another. We have 80 different species of mosquitoes, and they do not show any signs of leaving the area anytime soon. Mosquitoes thrive in hot, humid conditions, and any kind of stagnant or standing water becomes a breeding ground. Even a container for plants that regularly contain water can be the source of a mosquito infestation.
While their bites are annoying due to the appearance of itchy, red welts on your skin, they can also carry severe diseases that can infect you, your family, and your pets. Whether you are experiencing an influx of mosquitoes in the daytime or nighttime, or both, you will need to have an effective and efficient method of mosquito control to limit your exposure to these potentially deadly insects. These include:
To avoid these deadly viruses from affecting your loved ones and furry friends, you need a mosquito control method that deals with adult insects and kill mosquito larvae. Mosquito repellent is just not enough to keep these blood-sucking fiends away from you and your family.
Even if you can get rid of all of the adult mosquitoes flying around your home and yard, you may not have accounted for the mosquito larvae that have been laid. It is just waiting for the opportune moment to hatch and continue to drive you and your family crazy while also potentially spreading harmful diseases.
At Skymark Pest, we use all of our knowledge of the Florida mosquito population to help you get rid of mosquitoes in your yard and protect your family. It is one thing to repel mosquitoes for the moment, but it is another to kill mosquitoes and prevent them from returning.
An unfortunate fact for humans who have to deal with mosquitoes regularly is that they have evolved to the point of becoming resistant to many chemical treatments, including mosquito repellent. Therefore, we have to develop other methods to kill mosquitoes when mosquito repellent simply does not work.
At Skymark Pest, our pest control team is dedicated to helping you get rid of mosquitoes and eliminating how mosquitoes breed and lay eggs from your property. We will inspect your home for areas with standing water and other common breeding grounds. Our team can also look into your drains and treat them or introduce certain types of fish that eat mosquito larvae. Reducing the mosquito populations is the first step on the road to completely getting rid of mosquitoes on your property.
In addition to eliminating mosquitoes, breeding grounds, and homes, we may also need to introduce certain types of eco-friendly insecticides into the soil and air around your property. Particular insecticides work best on mosquito larvae and others that target the adult mosquito population more effectively. For non-chemical options, we can place mosquito traps and mosquito netting around the property to prevent the insects from escaping and entering your home or bothering you while outside.
When you need methods of effectively repelling mosquitoes, contact the experts at Skymark Pest in Florida.
