Mosquito control is especially important in our region, with over 50 mosquito species. That is why Integrated Pest Managment, Inc. has developed this effective program for controlling the blood sucker population around your home or place of business.
The best way to handle mosquitoes is to eliminate breeding sites and use a larvicide for all water features, fountains, bird baths, ponds, French drains, flower pots, and any other low lying areas in the yard. All shrubs, low lying trees and shaded areas are considered harborage areas and should be treated monthly during mosquito season. (which can be 9 months or more in our sub-tropical climate)
Mosquitoes are transmitters of numerous diseases including malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, encephalitis, Chikungunya, West Nile virus & Zika virus. Mosquitoes are also the primary cause of Heartworm in dogs.
The Aedes aegypti mosquito is well known for carrying and transmitting the Zika virus, Dengue virus, Chikugunya virus, and Yellow fever. They actively feed during the daytime hours when you, your children, and your pets are outdoors. The Aedes aegypti are a highly invasive species and are becoming increasingly resistant to insecticides.
