Mosquito season in Knoxville, TN is nearing its end. Although, we know Mother Nature usually has another burst of warm weather in store for us this time of year. Just because summer has left, it doesn’t mean mosquitoes are gone for good too. If you are squeezing out the last little bit of summer with an outdoor BBQ or special gathering, one-time mosquito control is perfect.
What Is One-time Mosquito Service?
A one-time mosquito application is a single service where professionals go out and spray for mosquitoes. This is not the same as regular residential mosquito control. With regular mosquito control for your home, a service professional comes out every few months to treat your home for mosquitoes. This is an important preventative measure before and during mosquito season.
When mosquito season comes to a close, it may be a little too late in the season to consider a mosquito control program for your Knoxville home, but spot treatment just may be the thing you need. One-time mosquito service controls the mosquito population for special events. It is a one-time deal that doesn’t require regular service - at least not yet.
When To Use One-time Mosquito Service
These are just a few events for which our customers need one-time mosquito control:
Outdoor birthday parties and events
Dangers Of Mosquitoes
No one wants mosquitoes at these events because they are more than a nuisance. They are dangerous. Mosquitoes pose a threat to you and your guests. Mosquitoes carry dangerous diseases such as Zika virus, West Nile virus, and encephalitis.
Mosquitoes are attracted to your outdoor event because of all the bodies and the nearby water sources around your home. Female mosquitoes are attracted to their food source - your blood. When you have company, mosquitoes get to feast. If you don’t keep the mosquitoes away from your outdoor event, they will quickly chase your guests away.
September is the perfect month for outdoor events and family time. Don’t let lingering mosquitoes ruin the party. For a mosquito -free event at the end of the summer, call Russell’s Pest Control for one-time mosquito service in your Knoxville, TN home that will get you by until next year when you can begin full mosquito control earlier in the season.
