Lately, we have been having a lot of rain. Combine this rain with the warm weather we have been having and we are sitting pretty in a mosquito’s paradise. Mosquitoes are not only annoying but dangerous as well. With Zika on the rise, it is important to know how to combat mosquitoes and keep you and your family protected.
Our number one advice would be to contact Mosquito Joe of Northeast Houston to help keep you and your family protected from mosquitoes. We ensure that each of our customer’s properties is as mosquito-free as possible with frequent treatments; our technicians go out to each home every 21 days. At this time, the technician will prepare the product and spray the hot spots that are attracting mosquitoes, as well as the outer and inner perimeter of your property. Our product has a 21-day residual and targets both the adult mosquito as well as it’s larvae. It is actively working to provide you and your family with a mosquito-free yard.
If you haven’t chosen Mosquito Joe, but would still like to decrease the mosquito population in your yard there are things that you and your family can do to help prevent these pests. Start by looking around your property for any standing water. Standing water can be found in tire swings, buckets and/or wheelbarrows that are in or around your yard. This is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and it is best to start acting by dumping out the water.
Another common problem that we find is dirty gutters. It’s a tough job to do, trust us we know, but dirty gutters can also trap water which will allow for mosquitoes to breed. It is best to make sure your gutters are cleaned out properly to decrease the mosquito population on your property. We also suggest maintaining water features and swimming pools. Make sure your pools are treated and that you are frequently changing out the water in any bird baths.
While all these precautions will help keep mosquitoes from your property, our number one solution to making outside fun again is Mosquito Joe’s barrier treatment. We strongly suggest calling us today at (832)-460-0003 and be sure to ask about our introductory price!
Have a wonderful, mosquito-free week!
