Mosquito Control Services
In the United States, mosquitoes are known to spread West Nile virus, eastern equine encephalitis and, in recent months, chikungunya virus. These illnesses do not have specific vaccines or treatments, so prevention of mosquito bites throughout the fall months is crucial.
- Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts and closed-toe shoes to protect the skin
- Minimize outside activity between dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active
- Eliminate areas of standing water around the home, such as flowerpots, birdbaths and baby pools. Mosquitoes only need about ½ inch of water to breed
- Screen all windows and doors, repairing even the smallest holes that could serve as entry points for pests
