For many property owners in the Fraser Valley, pest management programs are usually reserved for rats and other rodents. While gnawing pests are definitely a problem, so are mosquitoes! These biting bugs hide out in grass, just waiting for an opportunity to turn you into a blood meal. If these unwelcome insects are making a meal out of you, call an Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! expert for your Abbotsford mosquito control needs. Industry experience, expert training and an all-natural approach to pest control are what set our services apart from the other guys.
The pest control industry is overrun with biting pests. Whether it is bed bugs or fleas, no one wants an insect taking a bite out of them. In the past, property owners have felt that bugs in the great outdoors are out of their control, but this isn’t the case anymore! When you want to put an end to pest populations in your area, all it takes is one call to the experts at Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! Instead of treating these pests one by one, our specialists hit mosquito populations where it really hurts: your lawn!
When it comes to managing an infestation, many property owners do not consider their lawns and surrounding areas as hot spots for activity. The truth is that your lawn can be doing more harm than you realize when it comes to harbouring bugs. Proper pest control programs do not just approach adult pests one by one but work from the ground-up, treating insects at every stage of the life cycle.
Whether you notice them or not, there are mosquitoes laying eggs in the standing water around your property. In a climate that is known for its dampness, this can be a real problem. Different species of mosquitoes might act differently depending on their region and surroundings, but female mosquitoes rely on water. Sitting water or puddles do more than saturate your grass, they act as breeding grounds. Eggs are bad enough on their own but allowing mosquito larvae to sit, means adult pests, which means bad news. Instead of leaving only itchy, red bumps behind, mosquito bites are known to transmit disease, such as West Nile Virus. When you are tired of coating yourself in insect repellents, mosquito control programs are the answer to your problems.
The Good, The Bad and the Ineffective
There are plenty of products on the market that claim to kill mosquitoes, but many consumers are finding that this isn’t always true. High tech mosquito traps might claim to catch and kill pests but when you want real results, it is important to look deeper than surface populations. For years, companies have been using harsh chemicals and carbon dioxide baits to lure these biting bugs inside, but this does not do much to control the overall number of pests around your property.
The trick to getting rid of your infestation is preventing mosquitoes breeding around your outdoor spaces. Swatting at an adult mosquito might be satisfying in the moment but it is not enough to keep bugs at bay, and that is why our team has come up with a better system.
Instead of treating pests themselves, specialists at Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! treat your lawn instead. If you are noticing more and more insect life around your space, chances are that there is something that brought them there. This might be one of those previously mentioned breeding grounds or just the chance at a blood meal. By creating an inhospitable environment, our experts push these insect intruders off your property and keep them gone!
Abbotsford Mosquito Control: Our Process
When it comes down to lawn treatments, there are two things to consider: potential damage and results. Spraying heavy pesticides onto grass might help with pests a bit but it might also mean serious damage to lawns and gardens. Instead of taking a risk on your outdoor space, our spray treatments are all-natural and will not damage your greenery. By combining essential oils and other natural deterrents, our team of lawn and garden experts can guarantee results, without the threat of damage.
Each spray treatment lasts up to 21 days. Whether you want to banish bugs for a weekend event, or you are looking to have a pest-free summer, our experts have got you covered.
