We have over 80 species of mosquitoes in Florida. Nearly a quarter of mosquitoes are considered to be a public health threat. At Exclusion Pest control we offer solutions that are able to assist in the control of on going mosquito issues.
While there are many things that you can do as a homeowner in order to help control your mosquito problem, hiring a professional could speed up the process. At Exclusion Pest Control we start by doing a thorough inspection of the property in search of locating obvious sources that the mosquitoes would use as a breeding zone. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, as little as a teaspoon or bottle cap of water standing for more than a week is enough for eggs to develop into adult mosquitoes. When they're not actively hunting for prey, mosquitoes prefer to escape harsh sunlight and wind, opting for areas that provide shade and humidity. Shrubbery and foliage give mosquitoes a dark, humid environment to hide.
Our technicians are trained to create a strategy to control your mosquitoes based on their inspection keeping in mind that not all properties are the same. We offer mosquito fogging, trapping devices that attracts mosquitoes, and environmentally safe water treatments for area where standing water could be found.
Clogged gutters are infamous for a mosquito breeding zone. Gutters are usually missed because they are out of sight leaving you wondering why you are having a mosquito issue.
Be sure that potted plants have good drainage so that water doesn’t collect in the pots. If there’s a drainage dish, try to balance watering so that the dish doesn’t hold excess water for more than a few hours.
Mosquitoes are looking for a shielded space that is safe, cool and out of the direct sunlight. In particular, mosquitoes are likely to congregate in areas of your property shielded from the sun during the blazing hot midday hours. If your yard has tall weeds, grass or bushes, you will likely have that many more mosquitoes at your property.
