Aaahhh....the nice summer day, a delightful barbecue with the neighbors, a pool party in the afternoon, so many wonderful things to attend to in the summer. Bzzzzztttt....smack! Another mosquito! Mosquitoes are found from the tropics to the arctic, and they are definitely active here in Upstate South Carolina!
Female Mosquitoes feed on blood, and can carry diseases such as West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, Malaria, Yellow Jack, Dengue, Encephalitis, and for your dog, Canine Heartworm. Mosquitoes are a big time problem in many areas during the summer months.
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in areas of standing or stagnant water, and there are several species in our area.
Expert Pest Control has had excellent results with our Mosquito, Flea, and Tick program, which consists of seasonal monthly misting treatments from May to September. Our trained and certified technician will load an insecticide into his or her backpack mister, fire up the engine blower, and then walk around your home or business as the backpack mister places the treatment along the yard, shrubberies, and other landscape fixtures. The advantage of our specialized equipment is that our backpack mister breaks up the insecticidally-laced water into tiny droplet molecules that provide excellent coating of bushes and grasses, giving a much more complete and lasting residual treatment.
These monthly exterior treatments will help to break the life cycle of the mosquito as it rests in the treated shrubberies, bushes, and yard. If additional or stronger control is in order, we have special larvicidal tablets with which we can treat areas of standing water around your home or business.
