Are Mosquitoes Making Life Unbearable In Your Virginia Area Home?
When mosquitoes come onto your property, they're not just frustrating pests; they are potentially dangerous invaders. Some mosquito species in Virginia Beach are vectors for West Nile virus, which is endemic to the continental United States and claims lives every year. Mosquitoes in America can also spread several other viruses that, like West Nile virus, cause brain swelling. Swelling of the brain is referred to as encephalitis, and several diseases have this word in their name, such as eastern equine, western equine, St. Louis, and La Crosse encephalitis. There is also the ever-present threat of malaria.
While the United States is somewhat shielded from malaria, which is implicated in more than 750,000 annual deaths worldwide, outbreaks sometimes happen. Malaria is only one of many viruses that have had outbreaks in the United States. We have seen outbreaks of Zika virus, dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and many more. Your investment in mosquito control for your Virginia Beach area property is more than a quality of life decision; it is essential protection every property owner should have.
Our Mosquito Control Offerings
Most of the mosquitoes that bite you on your property are mosquitoes that hatched on your property. Mosquitoes aren't all that great at flying. They spend the majority of their time resting—not flying. If you have an image in your mind of mosquitoes zooming from yard to yard in search of someone to bite, you have it all wrong. While a mosquito can wander onto your property from a neighboring property, find you, and bite you, they're more likely to rest first. This is why mosquito control works so well. When mosquito resting sites are treated with residual control products, mosquitoes don't live long enough to bite you.
Another key component to mosquito control is the removal of breeding sites. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. These eggs hatch into wigglers, grow into tumblers, and eventually emerge from the standing water as flying adult mosquitoes. This process takes more than a week. If you locate standing water and dump it out on the ground, you can arrest the development process and reduce mosquitoes. We advise our customers on ways they can remove containers and address conditions that create breeding sites for mosquitoes. When this control method is combined with seasonal treatments, mosquitoes can be drastically reduced.
