Concerning Diseases Transmitted By Mosquitoes

While they might seem like another annoying backyard insect, they are one of the deadliest insects on the planet. As mosquitoes feed on any warm-blooded mammal, their feeding tubes can become home to all kinds of dangerous diseases that they can transfer from bite victim to a victim. That's why mosquito-borne illnesses, like the West Nile virus, Zika virus, yellow fever, and dengue fever, are still dangerous concerns even in the United States.

The diseases we just mentioned are much more common than you might think. Did you know one in every 300 mosquito bites results in the transmission of a dangerous illness? Just think about that next time you see a group of mosquitoes buzzing around your backyard. If you lack the proper tools to control mosquitoes on your property, you're putting your entire family at risk during any outdoor event, adding an element of danger to times in your life that should be reserved for making fond memories with your family.

Mosquitoes are attracted to your property because of any amount of standing water over a half-inch deep. When mosquitoes spot any sort of standing water after a rainstorm, whether it's in a flower pot, wheelbarrow, birdbath, or larger water feature, they'll lay eggs that hatch into larvae. Once the larvae have spawned, it is very difficult to break the breeding cycle by simply pouring out the water. That's why any standing water on your property needs professional treatment solutions.

Getting The Expert Help You Can Trust In The DMV

At Destroy Pest Control, we provide high-quality, all-natural, non-pesticide mosquito treatments in a proven five-step process:

1. We will inspect the exterior of your home, identifying reasons as to why mosquitoes are invading the property. We will then treat pockets of resistance that we discover during the inspection. 

2. We will place pheromone bait traps around the exterior of the property. 

3. We will treat the home's exterior with non-chemical granules made out of corn-oil, spearmint, and citronella. 

4. We will treat remaining pockets of resistance like standing water, bushes, and debris. 

5. We will repeat this treatment monthly from April to October during the height of mosquito activity.
