Why Professional Mosquito Control Is A Great Idea For Your Gilbert Property

There are so many ways Gilbert residents try to prevent mosquito bites, but most of them target the symptom rather than the source. What do we mean? The mosquitoes that buzz around you while you’re out in your yard are a symptom of a hidden problem. You can swat mosquitoes all day, every day, and never run out of mosquitoes to swat. You can also use mosquito deterrents all day, every day, and never get mosquitoes to go away.

Target the source of the issue

If you don’t target the source of the problem, your problem will never go away. Guess what professional mosquito control does? It gets right to the source of the problem. Almost all of the mosquitoes that bite you while you’re out in your yard are mosquitoes that live in your yard. Professional mosquito control targets mosquitoes at the source. At Green Home Pest Control, we use the following methods:

  • Knockdown agent: We use a knockdown agent to treat bushes, shrubs, shaded areas, and other locations where adult mosquitoes may be hiding. We do this to directly reduce mosquito populations on your property.
  • Standing water: We evaluate standing water in your yard and attempt to address these potential breeding areas manually. We will perform tasks such as pouring rainwater out of a frisbee and turning it over so that it can’t continue to collect rainwater. We also inform you of potential breeding sites.
  • Larvicide: We apply larvicide to standing water that cannot be addressed. Doing this prevents mosquito development.
  • In2Care traps: We deploy In2Care traps. These traps offer desirable breeding sites for mosquitoes. When eggs are deposited, the active ingredient which contains insect growth regulators prevents mosquito development. While in the trap, the female that deposits the eggs is exposed to a fungus that acts as an adulticide. She carries these two microbial agents to other potential breeding sites in your yard and helps to prevent reproduction in these locations as well.

There is no better way to deal with mosquitoes in Gilbert than to address breeding sites and prevent reproduction. While not an immediate solution, you’re going to start to really notice the difference in a few weeks – all without the need for insecticides.
