Upon arrival your technician will first walk the property, keeping an eye out for mosquito breeding sites (water), noting them and tipping them over where he can. Next using a backpack sprayer designed for precise application, your technician targets shrubs, plants, and lawn areas with a spray that kills mosquitoes on contact and bonds to foliage, where it acts as a mosquito repellent for weeks to come. Within 30-45 minutes after spraying, your yard is ready for family/pets to come out and play. All of the spray chemicals we use are synthetic forms of pyrethroids. Pyrethroids are insecticides that are derived from a naturally occurring compound called pyrethrum found in the chrysanthemum flower.
Habits and Dangers of Mosquitoes…
Adult females lay eggs in stagnant water, for example reservoirs or in containers such as plastic buckets, tires or kids toys. The most common mosquito species feed at dawn and dusk, and for a few hours into dark. However, there are some species that are particularly aggressive and will feed both day and night.
Most mosquitoes rest or sleep in a dark, sheltered place during the daylight hours, preferably an area that is relatively humid, such as tucked inside vegetation like plants and grass.
Mosquitoes can carry and transmit diseases such as Zika Virus, Malaria, Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever, Chikungunya, EEE and West Nile. At least two million people a year die from these diseases around the world.
