Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes, well-known for their itchy bites, are a serious public health problem. In the US, mosquitos have been known to transmit Zika Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, and West Nile Virus. The risk of infection can be reduced by treating mosquitoes early.

Causes

Standing water is the main cause of mosquitoes. In the US, mosquitoes can thrive in standing water. The perfect breeding ground is provided by mosquitoes in dripping outdoor faucets and birdbaths as well as backyard ponds and neglected pools.

Treatment

Belleville Pest Control employs a scientific approach for managing mosquitoes. Our technicians inspect and treat any areas where mosquitos breed and rest. Common areas where mosquitoes rest are under the eaves of homes and in fallen leaves. Belleville Pest Control technicians can offer recommendations to treat and prevent mosquitoes in areas where there is unavoidable standing water such as birdbaths.

Although we have had great success in reducing the mosquito population in most cases, there are some situations that the mosquito source is not within our control. There is a possibility that the mosquitoes in your yard are from another source because mosquitoes fly farther than just the average backyard.

Prevention

One of the best ways you can prevent mosquitoes is to maintain your property. Clearing out dead leaves, cardboard, pool toys, garbage, and other debris can reduce the number of places mosquitoes can seek refuge.

Another important step to prevent mosquitoes is to eliminate standing water. Also, keep your pools clean and dry to prevent mosquito breeding.

Through open windows and doors, mosquitoes can enter homes. Make sure to check all windows and doors for weatherstripping and screens. Keep your windows and doors closed during mosquito season.
