Emerald Lawn Care isn’t just about maintaining beautiful lawns; it’s about enhancing your entire outdoor living experience. Our comprehensive pest control services target mosquitos, ensuring a safer and more comfortable outdoor environment.
Mosquito Control programs are essential for homeowners looking to enhance the enjoyment and usability of their outdoor spaces while protecting their families from the health risks associated with these pests. Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance; they can transmit diseases like the West Nile virus. Here’s a closer look at how our typical Mosquito Control program works:
Transforming Your Outdoor Space with Emerald’s Mosquito Control Services.
Core Components of the Program
Regular Treatment Schedule
Frequency: Applications are typically scheduled once a month, starting from mid-May through mid-September. This period coincides with the peak activity times for both mosquitoes and ticks.
Coverage Area: The treatment covers not just the lawn but also landscape beds and shrubs, areas where mosquitoes and ticks are likely to breed and hide.
Special Occasion Sprays
In addition to the regular treatment schedule, one-time sprays are also offered for special occasions such as outdoor parties, weddings, or other events. This ensures that these events can be enjoyed without the inconvenience and risk of mosquito and tick bites.
Application: The insecticide is sprayed thoroughly on all shrubs and turf areas, targeting places where mosquitoes and ticks are most likely to reside.
Effectiveness and Expectations
While the treatment significantly reduces the number of mosquitoes and ticks, it is important to note that it does not guarantee a completely pest-free environment. However, the reduction is usually substantial enough to allow homeowners to enjoy their yards with much less annoyance and risk.
To maximize effectiveness, it’s crucial that the treatment is applied correctly and at the right intervals.
Keep Mosquitos at Bay
The 3 D’s of prevention and protection can help you decrease mosquito breeding habitats and protect yourself.
1) DRAIN water-filled containers. All mosquitoes require water in which to breed. Blocked gutters, water collection on pool covers, and even overturned garbage can lids can result in hundreds to thousands of mosquitoes.
2) DRESS appropriately. Research shows that all 176 species of mosquitoes are attracted to dark clothing, so wearing light-colored clothing can help protect you from mosquito bites.
3) DEFEND yourself by using the mosquito repellent of your choice. Any product with DEET, Picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus can help protect you against mosquito attacks.
Mosquito-borne diseases sicken and kill over one million people worldwide annually and can also transmit diseases and parasites to dogs and horses. Diseases such as Malaria, Chikungunya, Dog Heartworm, Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, LaCrosse Encephalitis, Western Equine Encephalitis, and West Nile Virus are all transmitted by mosquitoes… Protect yourself and your family.
