More importantly, they are a risk to your health. When female mosquitoes bite (the guys don’t) you may get more than a red, itchy welt. West Nile virus, Chikungunya fever, and encephalitis are just a few of the illnesses these pests transmit and are a serious concern for those living in Tennessee.
Your property could be breeding grounds for mosquitoes and a safe haven for these biting pests. All they need in order to continue their annoying and potentially dangerous existence is water. Any standing water will do. Stagnant drainage ditches, flower pots, your child’s wading pool, and bird baths are common examples of where to find mosquito larval and pupa. Really the possibilities are endless since they only need a small amount of water.
Adult mosquitoes are very active at dawn and dusk but they seek relief from the heat in areas where the sun doesn’t penetrate. Tall grasses, dense overgrowth, shrubs and bushes are very attractive to these pests.
If this sounds like your property, it's time to consider calling Russell's Pest Control. We're ready to help you get rid of mosquitoes.
At Russell’s Pest Solutions, we know mosquitoes. We know where they’re breeding and where they’re hanging out and we go after them so that you can enjoy your backyard during the spring and summer months.
When you contact us for help getting rid of mosquitoes, one of our pest control technicians will inspect your property to identify possible places where mosquitoes are likely to breed or rest. Treatment of shrubs, bushes and trees around the perimeter of the structure is performed along with any other hot spots noted during the inspection.
After our initial visit, we'll come back out every month (April through September) to re-treat. Though mosquitoes are nearly impossible to completely eliminate, you can relax knowing that they won't be happy once they arrive. And they won't last long when you've got our team of mosquito pros on the job.
When you're away from home, you're likely to encounter mosquitoes. Let's face it, it's inevitable that you'll find yourself in a situation where mosquitoes are present. To avoid mosquito bites and the health risks associated with them, we recommend taking the following precautions:
Schedule outdoor activities at times when mosquitoes are less active. Remember dawn and dusk is when they're most active.
Wear long sleeve shirts and pants when spending time outside.
Apply an EPA-registered insect repellent to exposed skin and clothes . Talk to your pediatrician before use on children.
