How Mosquito Control Treatments Benefit People & Pets

When mosquitoes invade your property, the chances of them biting your family, guests, or customers increases. Mosquito bites are itchy, painful, and can cause allergic reactions in some people or pets.

Along with bites and allergic reactions, mosquitoes can also transmit harmful diseases to humans and pets. These diseases include Zika virus, West Nile virus, dog heartworm, and rarer occurrences of Chikungunya virus. More than one million people die each year across the globe due to illnesses transmitted by mosquitoes, according to the American Mosquito Control Association.

Zika virus symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Joint pain
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Birth defects (if a pregnant woman is infected)

West Nile virus symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Aches/rash

Chikungunya virus symptoms include:

  • Terrible joint pain
  • Can last for weeks

When dogs are infected with heartworms, it can end up being a life-threatening disease. Heartworms are transmitted through a mosquito bite that is carrying the worm larvae. The worms then move through the dog’s bloodstream and can never be completely eliminated from the animal.

The best way to prevent these diseases is to have routine mosquito control treatments scheduled for your property.

Manage Problem Areas on Your Property Such as Standing Water & Tall Grass

Leaving standing water in your yard in Columbia can create a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

While mosquito control with insecticide is the best way to get rid of these pests, there are other things you can do on your property to mitigate the threats they pose. Mosquitoes breed in standing water, so if there are any areas on your property that tend to collect water, look into having those leveled out. Other problem areas include birdbaths or fountains that haven’t been tended to in a while.

Mosquitoes also tend to rest during the day in shady areas or in tall grass. By keeping grass regularly mowed, this hiding area can be eliminated. Another issue can be clogged gutters, where mosquitoes can nest in accumulated debris. Keeping gutters cleaned out will help with this issue. When mosquitoes don’t have a place to breed or hide, they will move on to other properties.

How We Treat for Mosquitoes on Your Property

At Linnemann Lawn Care & Landscaping, we begin mosquito treatments in May and then retreat your property every four to six weeks until the end of October. This averages to about six applications a year. Our trained professionals apply an insecticide that kills off these pests with a backpack blower.

We also use the same product to treat for fleas and ticks on your property and apply a perimeter pest control treatment around your home or business.
