Keep Mosquitoes Off Your Property With Albemarle Termite & Pest Control
If you want to protect your family's and your pets' health, keeping your property free of mosquitoes is a good place to start. Mosquitoes aren't just irritating nuisance pests. They can spread serious diseases to both people and pets. When you keep your property free of mosquitoes, you're keeping it free of diseases like:
- West Nile virus
- Zika virus
- Dengue fever
- Viral encephalitis
While ensuring mosquitoes stay away from your property can help keep you safe from these dangerous diseases, it isn't always easy. Mosquitoes need standing water and moist soil to breed, and we have moisture in spades here in coastal North Carolina. Even if you manage to get all the standing water off your property and keep your soil dry, there could still be water sources like ponds or puddles close to your property.
Our Mosquito Control Process
Since you're probably close to standing water you have no control over, you'll need professional mosquito control services to truly prevent North Carolina mosquitoes from invading your yard. That's exactly what we're here for at Albemarle Termite & Pest Control!
Our mosquito control process starts with a thorough inspection of your property. We'll look for sites where mosquitoes could be breeding and hiding during the day, as well as conducive conditions like standing water or mosquito-attracting flowers that could bring mosquitoes into your yard.
Next, we'll formulate a plan customized to your unique property and infestation. The size and severity of the problem will dictate a lot of how we treat it. We offer a range of pest control treatments in Elizabeth City meant to eliminate both adult mosquitoes and their larvae.
For grass and foliage, we apply a liquid mosquito control product that helps keep your landscaping and lawn grass free of these dangerous pests. When it comes to breeding sites, such as standing water and perpetually moist soil, we use a granular product meant to eliminate mosquito larvae.
We recommend once-monthly treatments during mosquito season, typically April through September or October, to ensure that your yard remains free of mosquitoes all summer. That way you can rest easy knowing you are protected from these biting pests and the diseases they spread.
Take Your Yard Back From Dangerous Mosquitoes
Getting rid of an established mosquito infestation is no picnic. They breed so fast that there can be hundreds of them on your property in a matter of days, and thousands in less than a month. What's worse, if you live near a waterway, there's not a lot you can do to eliminate their breeding sites. They'll simply breed in the water off your property and then come onto your property when it's time to feed on you or your pets.
What's even worse is that most of the mosquito control products you can buy at the store are highly ineffective against established mosquito infestations. Most of these products don't do much more than temporarily reduce the mosquito population on your property or simply encourage mosquitoes to move from one location on your property to another. They are not capable of eliminating entire infestations.
That's why the easiest and most effective way to get rid of mosquitoes is to call the experts at Albemarle Termite & Pest Control. We have all the tools and techniques to help you kick mosquitoes to the curb for good. So don't wait until they take over your yard and ruin your summer.
