Comprehensive Mosquito Protection For Your Macomb & Oakland County Home
Mosquitoes are at the same time annoying yet wholly dangerous thanks to their love of feeding on human blood. After feeding, they leave an itchy welt behind, but sometimes they can leave behind a lot more. For this reason and others, our Macomb and Oakland County pest control service technicians happily provide mosquito control services so you and others can live pest-free safely.
Our Macomb & Oakland County, MI Mosquito Control Service
Besides the threat they pose, mosquitoes also reproduce rapidly, ensuring a small infestation can spiral out of control quickly if left unchecked. That's why we don't waste any time carrying out our mosquito control process upon arrival.
Our standard mosquito treatments are applied for several months, usually three, four, or five months, at a time. We perform our treatment with backpack misters monthly for the most effective coverage. With this treatment, we focus on:
- Shady areas
Sometimes, an infestation isn't large yet, making it possible to get away with a one-time treatment. We usually perform these for special occasions like parties, events, weddings, among others.
Keep in mind that mosquitoes are heavily attracted to water, making it vital that you eliminate any sources of standing water to maintain the best coverage going forward. We can treat ponds and other landscaped bodies of water.
We mentioned other complications beyond an itchy welt when a mosquito bites you for good reason. These pests can carry a wide range of pathogens and bacteria that result in serious illness for those infected. Some mosquito-borne illnesses common in the United States are:
- Eastern equine encephalitis
- Dengue fever
- West Nile virus
If you travel to other countries, you can contract illnesses like malaria as well, so it's best to remain as safe as possible. In addition, these illnesses don't cause the same reactions and symptoms in people, making standardized treatment impossible to date.
