We recognize that all Mosquitoes are a Problem
Mosquitoes are more than just an irritant when they prick a person’s exposed skin. As one of North America’s most dangerous pests, they can carry serious diseases that harm humans and animals. Mosquitoes can ruin outdoor activities such as playing in the yard, grilling, and gardening. And with conditions right, a backyard can be the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Reducing the number of mosquitoes around the perimeter of your home is essential for your health and comfort.
Mosquitoes are extremely resilient insects despite being fragile in appearance. They can be identified by their slender bodies with long legs, one pair of scaled wings, and most are approximately 1/4"in size. The type of adult mosquito that is responsible for West Nile Virus is typically grayish brown or brown and lacks distinctive markings. Female mosquitoes draw blood from a variety of animals. They normally rest during the day and feed at dusk or nighttime.

Frequently Asked Questions about Mosquito Control Service
What diseases do mosquitoes commonly carry?
In the Charlotte service area, West Nile virus and Chikungunya, are the most common mosquito-borne threats to health. In other parts of the world mosquitoes can spread very serious diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. Some diseases spread by mosquitoes, including West Nile virus, can cause serious conditions such as encephalitis. The word “Zika” was introduced to most of us in 2016, as warnings for athletes and visitors of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil were issued. The Zika Virus and its ensuing ailments, such as microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome, is transmitted by the “yellow fever” mosquito known as Aedes
How can I reduce mosquitoes around my home?
Prevent new mosquitoes by halting the breeding process. Mosquitoes love standing water, as that’s where they lay their eggs. Up to 300 young mosquitoes can emerge from just one
tablespoon of water, so it’s crucial to eliminate standing water from bird baths, buckets, tires, pots, inflatable pools and gutters. Fill in outdoor puddles with dirt. Put screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes from breeding inside in water glasses or shower puddles.
How can I protect myself and family from mosquitoes?
The CDC recommends using an EPA-registered insect repellent for protection. Follow all label directions, especially when applying on children. Avoid using it on infants under two months old. Consider alternative natural insect repellents, such as ones containing citronella and geraniol, or oils that include lemongrass, cedar, rosemary, peppermint and cinnamon. Consumer Reports notes that natural insect repellents tend to wear off very quickly – so keep this in mind. Wear lightweight long sleeves and pants and full-coverage shoes. Use mosquito netting over strollers and baby carriers.
