Why You Should Consider Mosquito Control for Your Event Space
People rent your event space in hopes of having an enjoyable time. Mosquitoes, on the other hand, have different ideas. These pests can ruin events for everyone, especially for your guests and your staff. Their buzzing and biting can be annoying at best, and unhealthy at worst. That’s because mosquitoes are known to sometimes carry pathogens that may cause diseases, such as West Nile Virus.
Mosquitoes can spoil:
- Business meetings
Mosquitoes may be drawn to your event space for a variety of reasons. Adjacent landscaping may contain foliage that attracts them, or they may find standing water nearby in which to breed. Rainfall, leaks or irrigation malfunctions may accumulate stagnant water, or water features that don’t circulate properly can provide breeding habitat. Even a container as small as a bottle cap can hold enough water for mosquitoes to lay about 100 eggs in. And, since a group of mosquitoes can lay up to 3,000 eggs in just a few weeks, it doesn’t take long before populations explode.
What You Can Do To Bite Back
The best course of action to help protect your event space from mosquitoes is to partner with a commercial pest control provider that offers mosquito control services. In most cases, it’s a good idea to do this sooner rather than later. While it’s true that mosquitoes are often considered warm weather pests, they can actually be active in cooler temperatures as low as 50 degrees.
It’s important to note that not all mosquito control services are the same. For example, while some treatments take time, Terminix® Commercial’s Quick GuardTM Mosquito Service starts acting immediately to kill present mosquitoes.
After the application dries, you don’t have to worry about rainfall or automatic irrigation systems diluting the treatment. A special polymer layer helps shield the treatment’s active ingredient against weather and lawn watering, extending its effectiveness. With purchase of Terminix Commercial Quick Guard, monthly applications help ensure that mosquitoes stay down, and Terminix Commercial professionals will retreat between monthly services at no additional cost if needed for as long as you keep your plan.
And treatment isn’t the only part of the Quick Guard service. Your technician will inspect your property for potential mosquito breeding sites and even help educate you and your staff about how to help prevent future infestations.
Quick Guard can help you and your guests enjoy the events on your property without fear of mosquito attacks. As the nation’s leading provider of termite and pest control services, Terminix Commercial has the knowledge and expertise to effectively protect your business from mosquitoes and other pests. Terminix Commercial professionals won’t stop until mosquitoes and other pests are out of business.
When guests leave your event space, make sure they take good memories with them instead of itchy welts from mosquito bites. Find out what all the buzz is about today.
