What Mosquito Populations Mean For You
Pest infestations are never fun. These unwanted guests can turn any outdoor event into a catastrophe in short order. Whether they are buzzing loudly nearby or using humans as a blood meal, mosquitoes are a pain to have around. In addition to being irritating, these buzzing bugs are known to transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus. While centers for disease control can trace the passing of these diseases to mosquito bites, they do not provide much information on how to get rid of these pests.
For many residents, keeping these insects at bay means layering insect repellents over skin and clothing. This might provide a bit of temporary relief but when you want full protection against mosquitoes. You will have to think bigger. While the prospect of a blood meal is appealing, it is not always enough to make pests travel. This means that if you are being overwhelmed with bug bites, these tiny terrors are camped out somewhere on your property. Larger areas like campgrounds, commercial spaces or event centres, might set up mosquito traps but it is more important to find out how to track and treat these pests.
No matter the species of mosquitoes that you are dealing with, these pests have a dependency on water. Mosquitoes breed in damp environments, laying eggs either directly or near to standing water. Mosquito larvae spend time in these wet areas until they are ready to venture out on their own in search of food. The trick to getting rid of bugs is to treat them at all stages of their life cycles. This makes properties with water features vulnerable to hostile takeovers. Something as simple as not completely draining a pool can open the door to an infestation. This is what makes proper inspection of surrounding areas just as important as initial treatments. Instead of leaning on dangerous chemicals to keep those bugs away, call Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! for a solution that lasts.
The Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! Approach
It is easy to want to kill a mosquito after a painful bite but squishing one doesn’t do much to impact the overall population. This leaves natural or chemical options. Not many people are keen to spray themselves down with harsh chemicals every hour, so consumer reports have noted an upswing in sales of natural mosquito repellents. Depending on which brand you go with, active ingredients can be anything from soybean oil to oil of lemon, eucalyptus or even garlic.
Dealing with an infestation is an unpleasant situation in general but when managing special events, it is even worse. Outdoor events such as weddings, golf tournaments and even camping trips are all subject to the elements, but this should not include pests. Swarms of unwanted visitors can mean the difference between booking a large party for your event venue or having a potential client go somewhere else. Whether you are looking for relief around a residential or commercial property, the Eeenie Meenie Miny Mow! approach can take care of your bugs.
Because treatments are all-natural, they can be applied directly to grass and greenery without causing any damage to the organics. By treating green space directly, our team of experts is able to push populations out without having to kill them. An inhospitable environment for insects means an inviting space for people and that is exactly what you are looking for. By combining a mix of essential oils and other natural repellents, we can treat adult mosquitoes, as well as larvae and eggs. Eggs can’t be a problem when there is no one there to lay them!
In addition to treatments, the lawn and garden specialists at Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! take a tour of your space, inspecting any areas that might pose issues. Features like fountains and ponds can add a lot of visual appeal to spaces but if they are left sitting, they can house hundreds of pests. This is also true of naturally occurring water features like creeks, as well as small containers like flowerpots. With so many possibilities in play, it is important to have an in-depth assessment of any and all areas that might affect the overall result of your treatment.
Treatments & Time Frames
Standard treatments are known to last up to three weeks. A single application can suit a single day or event, but why stop there? High-traffic environments may want to stretch those results, maintaining a pest free environment for months at a time. This is why our team of highly trained lawn and garden specialists re-apply this barrier spray every 14 days. This frequency prevents pests from building up their numbers.
Businesses that thrive on warm weather and outdoor experiences can really benefit from an effective, long-lasting and all-natural pest control service. With so many options for outdoor amusements, it is important to set yourself apart from the competition. No one wants to be made a meal of, so give your clients all the fun in the sun that they can handle, without the threat of red, swollen bites.
