Protect your family and pets from mosquitos this year with our mosquito control services in Buffalo, Lancaster, East Amherst, and other Erie County and Niagara County communities.
Mosquitoes spread viruses such as West Nile, Zika, and many others that are dangers to humans and pets.
Did you know we have about 70 different species of mosquitos in the Erie County and Niagara County, NY area? Besides being annoying and painful when biting us for our blood, they also carry a slew of diseases that can be very harmful to your family members, especially to the furry ones.
Controlling mosquitos in your yard.
We all know what mosquitos are, so we’ll just jump right into how we treat them. If you have a lot of vegetation, wood areas, or water sources (such as a lake, pond, or stream) nearby, then your property will be more prone to mosquito infestations.
To eradicate mosquito issues, we spray an insecticide from a powered backpack around the entire property, but focus on the underside of vegetation, as well as dark and damp areas where mosquitos like to breed. Mosquito control insecticide does not harm your landscaping or lawn, but we do recommend keeping pets and family inside for about an hour after the application. A single application should be effective in reducing mosquitos for about thirty days.
To effectively control mosquitoes, ongoing applications are required throughout the spring, summer, and fall months.
Mosquitoes are more than just annoying, they carry disease and are a danger to both humans and pets.
We’ve all done the quick smack when getting bit by a mosquito. However, this short burst of pain is just the tip of the iceberg of problems they can cause. In New York State, we’ve had the following diseases transmitted to humans by mosquito bites:
- West Nile Virus (WNV), the first case in New York State was reported in 1999.
- Zika Virus, the first case in New York State was reported in 2016.
- Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) Virus, the first case in New York state was reported in 1971.
Besides the threat that mosquitos pose to humans, they can also transmit diseases to your furry family members. For dogs, heartworm is transmitted through mosquito bites.
Stay safe and schedule mosquito control services this year.
