How Terminix Quick Guard™ Mosquito Service Works
With warmer weather comes the desire to spend time outside with friends and family. However, the nuisance of mosquitoes can keep you from doing so.
How it Works
Terminix Quick Guard Mosquito Service begins working immediately to reduce the mosquito population in your yard. Even better, a part of the service includes a product with a special polymer layer that helps protect the active ingredient against weather and lawn watering. One treatment keeps working for weeks to give you long-lasting protection. And then monthly applications help ensure that mosquitoes stay down.
Why You Should Consider a Mosquito Service
Mosquitoes can be a real threat for homeowners. A group of these insects can lay an average of 100 eggs in a container the size of a bottle cap and 3,000 eggs in just a few weeks. Not only can they cause welts and itching when they bite, but they can also carry pathogens that may cause disease like West Nile. And since mosquitoes can be active in temperatures 50 degrees and above, they can be a nuisance that keeps you and your family from enjoying the outdoors.
Mosquito Prevention Tips
There are some steps you can take at home to help reduce mosquitoes and complement the treatment. These steps include:
- Getting rid of standing water
- Keeping gutters and drains clear
- Maintaining a well-kept yard
As a part of the mosquito service, these are opportunities that your Terminix mosquito technician will point out and consult with you on while inspecting and treating your property.
