Mosquito Control Services
The mosquito is a common flying insect that is found around the world. There are about 2,700 species of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour.
The mosquito is often a carrier of diseases, such as malaria, encephalitis, yellow fever, dengue fever, dog heartworm, West Nile virus, and many others. The females, who drink blood, can carry disease from one animal to another as they feed.
Evansville Area Mosquito Yard Applications
The first and most important step to an effective mosquito program is the inspection.
The inspection consists of walking the property to determine locations of conditions which are conducive to mosquito infestation and to evaluate heavily populated mosquito breeding areas, and to compile a detailed plan of attack.
The plan of attack will generally require the homeowner to help aid in eliminating the conditions conducive to infestation and will also have a comprehensive plan as to how our trained technicians will treat the property.
Mosquito applications are done every 4-6 weeks, depending on weather conditions, and severity of the problem.
Treatments for the Evansville area start in May or June and generally run through October.
