Of the 3,500 mosquito species in the world, only a few hundred bite humans. Unfortunately, those that do bite can spread diseases, including West Nile virus, Dengue Fever, and Malaria. Because of this, Mosquitoes infect 247 million people worldwide each year with devastating diseases that often cost them their lives.
While the risk of contracting malaria from mosquitoes in the United States ended in 1951, these bothersome biting bugs can still cause more than just a nuisance. They can also spread the Zika virus.
In humid areas where water can pool and heat up, mosquitos find a haven; they can freely mate and lay their eggs without any predators. And, due to the temperature, larvae can easily mature and fly off to pest anyone nearby. Because areas such as North Carolina are so humid, mosquitos are prevalent here and can cause problems.
Prevention is the best weapon against this species of pest. The first step to removing your mosquitos is by removing standing, stagnant water in flower pots, tires, saucers, and other similarly shaped items. Unfortunately, mosquitoes don’t require much water to breed and multiply. In some instances, chemical control is the only method that will effectively remove them from your property.
An expert application of chemicals reduces the number of mosquitoes around your house in different stages. This means that there are treatments to rid your home of the mosquitos who have reached maturity and are flying around to the larva currently developing in any still waters around your property. By providing mosquito removal services that get rid of the pests from all developmental stages, you can make sure that you can get rid of your mosquito problem.
However, don’t expect that one pest control service will be needed. It is unfortunate but mosquitos can come back and start the whole process all over again. This, unfortunately, is just part of living in your location and climate.
But, after initially removing the mosquitos off of your property, you will have a time that your property is mosquito-free.
