Mosquito Control Services For Norwalk Homes
Mosquitoes in Norwalk are some of the most dangerous pests you can wind up with in your backyard. Most people think of itchy bites and an annoying buzzing sound when they think of mosquitoes, but these perilous pests are a whole lot worse than that. In terms of the sheer number of people they kill, mosquitoes are actually the world’s most dangerous creatures. Mosquito-related deaths are so common their numbers even compete with the global murder rate!
With that in mind, it’s safe to say you don’t want these buzzing little menaces sniffing around your property. Unfortunately, keeping them away from your home is easier said than done. The good news is you don’t have to go it alone. Expert help from Tim’s Pest Control is just a click or call away.
Our Norwalk, CT Mosquito Control Process
Our mosquito control process is a one-two punch of preventative measures and repellent products. We begin our mosquito control efforts with a thorough inspection of your property to find out where mosquitoes are or could breed.
Sometimes, mosquito breeding sites are obvious, like a stagnant birdbath or an unchanged pet water bowl. However, sometimes mosquito breeding sites may be less apparent. For instance, did you know some mosquito varieties can lay eggs in moist soil in a pinch? Or that something as simple as a flower pot with a little rainwater in it can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes? Our experts can help point out the less obvious places mosquitoes are using as breeding grounds on your property and help you do something about them.
However, sometimes there’s not a lot you can do about certain mosquito breeding sites. Your property might be near a body of water that’s pumping out mosquitoes around the clock. Certain plants on your property, like nectar-rich flowers, may also be attracting mosquitoes to your property, and these may not be plants that you want to eliminate. That’s where our repellent products come in.
Here at Tim’s Pest Control, we use In2Care mosquito control products. These mosquito traps are a multi-impact tool for killing off disease-spreading mosquitoes. This tool not only contaminates mosquitoes with a larvicide. It also kills slowly enough to allow the mosquitoes themselves to spread the poison to other breeding sites.
That means the trap doesn’t just kill mosquito larvae that come into direct contact with it. It kills all the mosquito larvae in the area around it. This larvicide is combined with a slow-acting biological agent that will kill adults after a few days to allow them to first spread the deadly larvicide.
A Mosquito-Free Yard Is Just Around The Corner
You, as a homeowner, can take some measures to reduce mosquito populations on your own. They include getting rid of all standing water and planting herbs and flowers that mosquitoes hate, like citronella and lavender. However, if even your best efforts don’t seem to be putting a dent in your mosquito problem, contact us here at Tim’s Pest Control. Our Norwalk, CT home pest control and commercial pest control experts can help you take your mosquito control efforts to the next level, so you never have to worry about contracting viral encephalitis or West Nile virus on your back patio again!
