Are mosquitos ruining your summer evenings? Are they making spending time in your yard impossible? If that’s the case, it may be time to schedule mosquito control services with Chem Tech Pest & Grounds Care. Many people believe that there is nothing that can be done about mosquitos and that they are just a fact of life. However, with the help of professional mosquito control and extermination experts, like ours in Katy, you can have a mosquito-free yard and get back to enjoying your summer BBQs.
How Does Mosquito Control Work?
Mosquito control is a complicated process. There is no one, fast, easy solution to eradicating mosquitos from your yard. However, this does not mean that it is impossible. Because mosquitos reproduce so quickly, truly effective mosquito control services, like ours, target all mosquito life stages. This usually means that you will incorporate several treatment methods at once.
Methods for controlling mosquitos include:
- Treating areas where mosquitos have laid their eggs, such as through fogging
- Applying larvicides to areas where mosquito larvae are likely to be, such as your lawn
- Spraying for adult mosquitos with insecticides
Most mosquito treatments will last around 30 days, and when all stages of the mosquito life cycle are targeted, you should see an overall reduction in the number of mosquitos in your yard after those 30 days.
While our mosquito control services are highly effective, it is also important that you work to keep mosquitos at bay in-between visits. You can do this by making your yard less attractive and hospitable to them. This is namely done by reducing and eliminating the areas in which they are most likely to lay eggs.
Tips for keeping mosquitos out of your yard include:
- Remove sources of standing water, such as bird baths and pet water bowls
- Replace necessary standing water sources with recirculating water, such as pet fountains
- Cover other water sources when not in use, such as swimming pools and hot tubs
- Utilize citronella candles or torches when outside
- Do not overwater your lawn
- Keep your lawn mown
- Cut back overgrown areas of your yard
- Plant mosquito-repelling plants
If you live in Katy, Sugarland, Cypress, or West Houston, you know that mosquitos can be a big problem every summer. But with our help and a little TLC between visits, you can start enjoying spending time in your yard again.
