Jacksonville Resident's Need Mosquito Control Throughout The Year
Mosquitoes are a serious nuisance in our yards, but as you are likely aware, they can be far more than that. They can spread diseases and pathogens. One bite from the wrong mosquito, and you could find yourself with a scary illness. Every year, we get hit with all kinds of mosquito viruses; some cause flu-like symptoms and horrible aching pain. Some lead to a swelling of the brain. Some can cause Guillain-Barre syndrome in adults and microcephaly in unborn children. They go by names like West Nile, Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya, Zika, encephalitis, and yellow fever. All it takes is one bite. While you can't completely prevent mosquitoes from biting you in Jacksonville, you can reduce the number of mosquitoes that can bite you. One of the best ways to do this is to invest in year-round mosquito control for your Jacksonville yard all year long. Here's how it works.
Step One: Inspection
When you have the team at Lindsey Pest Service provide ongoing mosquito control for your Jacksonville property, the first thing you'll get is a detailed inspection. This is to determine areas where mosquitoes are hiding and breeding.
Step Two: Making a Plan
Every yard is different. Your pest control professional will work with you during the quoting process to ensure you get the service you need. As an example, some properties only need treatments every three months. Others require one every six weeks.
Step Three: Elimination of Adult Mosquitoes
During each visit, your pest control professional will treat mosquito-resting areas around your home, such as your shrubs, plants, and the voids under structures. This treatment works quickly to eliminate adult mosquitoes that are on your property. Not only will this prevent mosquitoes from biting you when you go out into your yard, but it will also prevent them from laying eggs and creating more mosquitoes. It's a win-win!
Step Four: Keeping Mosquitoes Away
The product used to eliminate adult mosquitoes is residual. It will work to repel mosquitoes between visits. This lets those little biters know that your property is a no-fly zone.
Step Five: Preventing Mosquito Reproduction
Controlling breeding sites is a vital component in the battle against mosquitoes. If a mosquito comes into your yard and lays eggs, she can leave a hundred at a time. Addressing breeding sites can prevent this from happening. Mosquito-breeding areas can be addressed in two ways. Some can be removed or altered to avoid them from being used by mosquitoes. We'll let you know what these are. If a breeding site can't be changed or removed, we can treat it with a larvicide to prevent the development of mosquitoes. When eggs hatch, they will never become flying adult mosquitoes that bite you.
Step Six: Enjoy Your Yard
Once your service is in place and treatments have begun, you can rest easier. The treatments we perform are the most advanced and trusted mosquito control methods used in the country. You can feel free to invite people over for backyard pool parties, graduations, wedding receptions, birthday parties, reunions, and all of the other gatherings you'll have in your yard during the year. You can also let your guests know that you've taken measures to reduce and control mosquitoes on your property. The fear of mosquitoes is real. Some people avoid outdoor gatherings altogether because of the recent Zika scare. This will hopefully set their mind at ease.
Step Seven: Keep It Up
Our customers come back year after year because they see results. We're sure you will too. Keep investing in mosquito control and continue enjoying all of the many benefits of mosquito reduction services. It can be easy to forget what it used to be like when your yard was teeming with mosquitoes.
