Potential Threats to Human Health
Mosquitoes tend to bite most frequently at dusk and dawn. Unfortunately, these pests are more than just a nuisance. Mosquitoes are vectors of several very serious diseases, such as West Nile Virus, encephalitis, malaria, dengue fever, and yellow fever. West Nile Virus is a serious concern in the United States.
The symptoms of West Nile virus include:
- Flu like symptoms
- High fever
- Head and body aches
- As the disease progresses, weakness, confusion, or coma can result
Due to the threat of serious mosquito borne illness, it is important to avoid getting bitten as much as possible. People often use insect repellents, pesticides, or avoid being outside in the evening at all. We offer a better solution for Boston mosquito control that reduces the threat of mosquito bites and allows you to enjoy spending time outside.
Reclaim Your Backyard
Don’t let mosquitoes drive you out of the backyard. We offer effective mosquito control in Boston and surrounding areas with our Pest D-Fence program. This system provides great results with just one monthly treatment during the peak activity months, from summer to fall. The mosquito suppression results are immediate and get even better over time with repeated monthly application.
The treatment process takes less than a half hour to complete for most yards and only an hour to dry. After that, it is completely safe for children, pets, and wildlife. We offer organic and conventional mosquito treatment options to meet the needs and preferences of each customer. Both products are derived from plants, but one is natural and the other, synthetic.
Preventing Mosquitoes from Making Themselves at Home
Pest control treatments are only part of an overall strategy for reducing the population of mosquitoes on your property. It is important to understand that mosquitoes need only a half inch of water to breed, so pay attention to places where mosquitoes may be breeding and remove stagnant water sources to prevent an even bigger infestation later in the summer as they continue to reproduce.
In order to reduce the threat of mosquito borne illness, you can:
- Eliminate standing water in containers, flower pots, and other sources
- Check that screens are in good condition without holes
- Minimize the amount of time spent outside during the evening and early morning hours
- Use insect repellent
- Consider professional mosquito control
