HOW MOSQUITO CONTROL WORKS:
Once a month during mosquito season, your Terminix® specialist will strategically spray non-flowering vegetation and other typical mosquito hideouts with our exclusive dual-action formula.
This Mosquito Control solution is one part sugar-based attractant that draws them in to feed. The second part is a killing agent that ensures they won’t feed on people again.
- STEP 1: BAIT
Once a month during mosquito season, we’ll strategically spray areas around your exterior that attract mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are attracted to and feed on this irresistible bait.
- STEP 2: KILL
After mosquitoes ingest the bait, they stop feeding on people. They stop biting you, and they soon die.
- STEP 3: COLLAPSE
As they die off, the mosquito population collapses – more than 90% in just two to three weeks.1
KNOW THE ENEMY: MOSQUITOES
Mosquitoes are a nuisance that can shut down fun outdoor activities. Understanding mosquito habits can help minimize your chances of attracting them.
And fewer mosquito attractions alongside our mosquito service means more effective outdoor mosquito control.
MOSQUITOES OR FLYING INSECTS
THAT LOOK LIKE MOSQUITOES?
Like other insects, mosquitoes have a head, thorax and abdomen. They can be confused with other flying insects, especially other flies.
Some of the other flying insects that can be incorrectly identified as mosquitoes include:
- Crane flies
- Fungus gnats
BEATING THE BITE
BEFORE THEY TAKE FLIGHT
There’s no substitute for our revolutionary mosquito control service. But there are steps you can take to minimize your chances of attracting mosquitoes.
As mentioned above, mosquito flight patterns usually originate from a breeding site. Eliminating mosquito breeding sites should mean less mosquitoes in the surrounding area.
Mosquito eggs, larvae and pupae all develop in water. The water must be present for several days, be relatively stagnant and must have some organic materials in it for the larvae to feed on. Clear, clean water that sits only for two or three days will not breed mosquitoes.
To ensure the best mosquito control, scan your yard for potential breeding sites. Look for anything, large or small, that will hold water. Potential trouble spots could include:
Wheelbarrows and other tools
One wheelbarrow full of water can easily produce enough hungry mosquitoes to infest a whole neighborhood.
Water that has no place to go can collect rapidly.
The insides of tires provide a particularly good spot for mosquitoes – especially for Asian tiger mosquitoes – because they often hold stagnant water. Also check tire swings in the yard.
When trying to employ backyard mosquito control, toys left out can be more dangerous than fun. A toy truck in the backyard can collect rainwater and leaves, and have several dozen mosquito larvae breeding inside.
Preventing and minimizing possible mosquito breeding sites will help make sure you don’t sabotage your mosquito control efforts. And it will help make sure your mosquito service delivers at its maximum effectiveness and allows you to beat the bite.
