The Threat of West Nile Virus Is Real
Beyond mosquito repellent for protecting you and your family, Bug Busters offers a mosquito reduction program to prevent mosquito larvae developing in standing water and managing them before they become breeding, biting adults. Our goal is to reduce the number of disease-carrying mosquitoes on your property to prevent West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue, malaria, and canine heartworm.
Unfortunately, not all of the mosquitoes you encounter on your property originate there. An ongoing treatment program is your best option to help protect you and your family, so you can continue to enjoy your outdoor activities.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mosquitoes
Q: How do you know if mosquitoes are carrying a disease?
A: It’s impossible to tell. Personal precautions, such as over-the-counter repellents are recommended. Professional management methods include two distinct control agents: adulticides, which kill adult mosquitoes, and larvicides, which prevent larval mosquitoes from becoming breeding, biting adults.
Q: How do the products we use reduce mosquito populations?
A: We treat the landscaping and foundation around the property with a residual adulticide to help reduce the population of mosquitoes in their resting sites. When necessary, we treat mosquito breeding sites on the property to help prevent mosquito larvae from developing into adults.
Q: Will treatments totally eliminate the mosquitoes on my property?
A: While treatment is intended to help reduce the mosquito population on your property, our program will not totally eliminate mosquitoes. Bug Busters’ Mosquito Management Program is intended to help reduce the breeding and resting sites of mosquitoes around your property, thus reducing, but not eliminating, the likelihood of being bitten by mosquitoes.
The Bug Busters’ Mosquito Management Program is a proactive approach rather than a reactive approach in the reduction of mosquito breeding and resting sites.
Q: Besides ponds and streams, where else do mosquitoes breed?
- Over-watered landscaping
- Water gardens
- Bird baths
- Old tires
- Flower pots
- Tree holes
- Pool covers
- Rain barrels
- Roof gutters
- Ornamental fountains
- Abandoned swimming pools
- Water troughs
- Retention ponds
- Any other water-holding receptacles, especially after rainfall
Q: How can I avoid mosquito bites?
A: Here are a few tips…
- Stay indoors during dawn, dusk and early evening when mosquitoes are more likely to bite.
- Wear light-colored clothing, plus long-sleeved shirts and long pants for extra protection.
- Use personal repellents on skin and clothing.
- Protect your dog or cat with a product made especially for pets that repels mosquitoes.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Mike IS wonderful. He will come out multiple times in the same week if needed. My daughter got married last may, and we had the rehearsal dinner (for 50) at our house. Two weeks before the dinner, ants showed up in the kitchen. Mike kept coming out till they were all gone. He was a lifesaver.
They always let me know when they were coming, always professional. If I ever seen a bug in house they came immediately and resprayed. One happened once in three years. Always polite, punctual and professional. Wouldn’t have any other bug company! I also love the fact I have the same person every time come out. So me or wife know them by name and it’s great all the way around.
The agent was very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. I would definitely use this company’s service again.
