Why You Should Have Professional Mosquito Control For Your Wilmington Home
April 10, 2020
We all know that mosquitoes can leave irritating, itchy welts on our skin. It is also likely that you are aware that mosquitoes can make you very sick. They spread diseases like West Nile virus, dengue fever, yellow fever, Malaria, Zika virus and more. But there is another reason why you should have professional mosquito control for your Wilmington home: It works! You may think, "Why bother getting mosquito services; those mosquitoes are just going to come into my yard and bite me anyway." This is actually not true. Here's why mosquito control works.
What Mosquitoes Don't Want You To Know
Most of the mosquitoes that bite you in your backyard were born in your backyard. Many mosquitoes won't travel more than a few hundred feet in their entire lives. This is because they aren't very good at flying. They spend the vast majority of their days resting...and waiting. As soon as you come out of your home and enter your yard, they take to the air. They're not fluttering around in your yard all day. That would be too much of an effort. This is important to understand.
It is easy to think that you can spend all kinds of money to have your yard treated for mosquitoes only to have mosquitoes from your neighbor's yard come in and bite you. Or to have a mosquito fly through your neighborhood, locate you enjoying some time in your backyard, bite you, and head on its way. This is not how it works. If a mosquito comes into your yard, it is likely to rest before it bites you. It is a lot of work for that little mosquito to get around, especially on days that are not humid.
When you invest in mosquito control, it can make a big difference because the mosquitoes that are eliminated are not going to be replaced quickly, and any mosquitoes that come into your yard and take a break before they bite you, aren't going to live long enough to bite you. Your treatments will also prevent female mosquitoes from laying hundreds of eggs in your yard—eggs that will turn into hundreds of mosquitoes. Do you see how it works?
Two Ways A Professional Gets Rid Of Mosquitoes In Your Yard
As you can see, mosquitoes don't buzz in, bite you, and buzz out. They come in, find a place to rest, lay a few eggs, and grow a population of mosquitoes that hang around and plague you every time you want to go out and enjoy your backyard. You can stop them by having a licensed pest professional address breeding sites in your yard and treat key locations with a residual product that is designed to eliminate simple organisms like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Yup. You heard that right. When you invest in mosquito treatments, you can also protect your family from dangerous diseases spread by ticks and fleas. It is a win-win-win!
