South Florida Mosquito Control
In South Florida, mosquito season can begin as early as March and end as late as October! Besides leaving behind itchy, red welts when they bite humans, they can also be dangerous as they pose serious health risks. One of the best and most effective ways to reduce mosquitoes in your property is investing in a recurring mosquito control program. There are several programs to choose from, but a popular eco-friendly choice is a green mosquito control option.
With a green mosquito control program, eco-friendly products are utilized when a monthly mosquito treatment is performed. These products are derived from flowers and botanicals, applied to areas where they are most needed instead of the entire property. The treatment solution is effective in reducing both larva and adult mosquitoes.
Mosquito Prevention Tips
While green mosquito control is effective in reducing mosquitoes, it’s equally important to eliminate factors that might be attracting them in the first place. Mosquitoes are attracted to any water as they lay their eggs in the smallest amount. Consider eliminating potential breeding sites by:
- Removing items that can hold water including pots, cans, bird baths, lids, toys, and planters
- Inspecting your gutters for any clogs, making sure they are cleaned out
- Repairing poor drainage sites in your yard as these can lead to standing water
- Cleaning up debris around your home; moisture can accumulate under piles of leaves, boards, rocks, and other outdoor items
