Effective methods to get rid of a mosquito population on your property include the use of products that can control the winged adult mosquitoes and can also eliminate mosquito larvae before they have a chance to develop into adults.
Ehrlich can create a mosquito-free barrier around your property, as part of our mosquito prevention services. This program targets adult mosquitoes around a home. During day time mosquitoes can rest on the vertical side of buildings or within low-lying vegetation.
Through the application of liquid pesticides to perimeter vegetation, ornamentals and mulch areas, we are able to target adult mosquitoes that will come into contact with these treated areas when they land to rest .
Using a power sprayer or mist blower (depending on state regulations and license categories) mosquito adulticide is applied to low-lying vegetation.
This method will eliminate mosquitoes on contact and after they land on treated surfaces. The adulticide will continue to repel mosquitoes for several weeks after application.
Ehrlich's mosquito control professionals routinely assist local health municipalities by sharing information about the numbers and kinds of mosquitoes in a local area. This helps local municipalities determine where they should be concentrating their mosquito control efforts in residential areas.
This treatment targets mosquito larvae and pupae residing in smaller bodies of water. Ideal for use in seasonal pools / puddles, retention ponds, roadside ditches, swampy areas, abandoned swimming pools and water-filled depressions in yards or pastures.
Most mosquito larvicides possess little to no toxic effects on fish. However, you must read the label of the larvicide product before you apply it to be certain of toxicity and risks to wildlife and the environment.
If larvicide products are applied according to the label, and the treated water is not used for drinking water - there is little risk to human and pet health. As a rule, Ehrlich does not apply larvicide to water that contains fish or that leads to waterways.
Your pest control professional will determine the type of larvicide to use after a thorough inspection / environmental assessment.
No. Mosquitoes need water to breed and do not breed indoors. Dumping out any standing water outside of the home is the main recommendation to homeowners.
Remember: Mosquitoes will breed in any container holding as little as just a cup of water!
