As a part of our Mosquito Control Service, HomeTeam will:
HomeTeam will conduct a thorough inspection of your home’s perimeter to reveal potential mosquito living and breeding sites.
Outdoor plants, bird baths, and any standing water are prime breeding sites for mosquito larvae, while damaged or town window or door screens can give adult mosquitoes access inside your home. HomeTeam will locate any areas of concern.
Our two-pronged approach treats mosquito living and breeding sites. First, we apply fogging treatment to common resting sites––such as shrubs, tall grasses, and landscaped areas––to control the mosquito breeding population. We take utmost care throughout to avoid plants intended for consumption. Then, we target standing water with our growth regulator. This attacks mosquitoes in early stages of development––and gives you peace of mind.
Our service report details problem areas and includes a dedicated treatment plan with recommendations customized to your needs to help reduce mosquitoes on your property.
All Hands on Deck to L.I.M.I.T. Mosquitoes
While these best practices below don’t replace mosquito control, your actions can help keep these troublesome insects away. Use L.I.M.I.T. to reduce your mosquito exposure.
LOOK FOR WATER
Even the smallest amount of water held in a leaf or bottle cap can be enough for mosquitoes to breed. The water held in birdbaths, non-chlorinated pools, garbage can lids, pottery, pet bowls will all attract breeding mosquitoes.
INSPECT YOUR HOME
Check window and door screens for holes and repair or replace them as needed.
MAINTAIN YOUR YARD
Adult mosquitoes rest during the day, usually on the under sides of vegetation.
Make your yard less hospitable to mosquitoes:
- Mow lawn regularly
- Avoid overwatering
- Keep vegetation away from your home’s foundation
- Clear away leaves, litter, and debris
Mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and late evening.
Isolate yourself from mosquitoes during their most active time of day by avoiding outdoor activity during dusk and dawn.
If you must be outside during these hours, set up large outdoor fans to help blow mosquitoes away, if possible.
Apply a DEET-based insect repellent according to the directions on the label and remember to re-apply as directed. Long-sleeved shirts and pants also help protect your skin.
