  • Inspect

    Inspect

    HomeTeam will conduct a thorough inspection of your home’s perimeter to reveal potential mosquito living and breeding sites.

  • Identify

    Identify

    Outdoor plants, bird baths, and any standing water are prime breeding sites for mosquito larvae, while damaged or torn window or door screens can give adult mosquitoes access inside your home. HomeTeam will identify any areas of concern to help ensure comprehensive outdoor mosquito control.

  • Treat

    Treat

    Our two-pronged approach treats mosquito living and breeding sites effectively. 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 to avoid plants intended for consumption. Then, we target standing water with our growth regulator. This method attacks mosquitoes in the early stages of development to prevent propagation.

Mosquito-borne Illnesses in the United States

Mosquitoes can carry an array of harmful and potentially deadly diseases. Some of these are more common in certain regions within the United States due to their climates. Being aware of these diseases can help you understand the risks associated with the area where you live:


  • West Nile Virus: This is the most common mosquito-borne disease in the U.S. It can cause severe neurological illnesses in some individuals.

What is mosquito control?

Mosquito control refers to the various strategies and measures implemented to manage and mitigate mosquito populations.

Mosquito control methods can include both preventive measures and targeted interventions.
