Do You Need A Mosquito Service?
Mosquitoes are all around especially since the summer is already in full swing. Given that, you can expect to see tons of fliers for mosquito services swarming your mailboxes. The cost of these services depend on your location, how big your yard is and several other factors. These include if your yard is filled with greenery and shrubs that may harbor resting mosquitoes. Firms usually give out discounts for the first treatment. After that, they will charge a flat rate per treatment. The total cost per year will depend on how long the mosquito season is going to be in your area. If you live in cooler areas, the mosquito season is shorter. For those of us in Myrtle Beach, you can expect it to be longer.
A residential mosquito service commonly involves the use of insecticides that are registered with the EPA or Environment Protection Agency such as pyrethrins, which come from chrysanthemum flowers; as well as pyrethoids, artificial chemicals that replicate phyrethrins. These treatments are more common like using organophosphate pesticides. The latter tend to be more toxic to animals and birds and that’s why they are used much less.
How Mosquito Services Work
A mosquito service will blow insecticide from backpack designed tanks, focusing on the underside of the vegetation, leaves, ground cover, as well other dark and cool locations where mosquitoes tend to hide. Mosquitoes are killed when the spray touches and dries on it. However, it leaves residues on the branches and leaves that will repel the bugs, which will help control the insects that go into your yard from someplace else.
The Environmental Protection Agency said that there are registered compounds that are effective and safe when they’re prepared and used as indicated in their label. Zap Pest Control uses these recommended compounds with or mosquito service. But the agency also left a reminder that there are no pesticides that are 100% risk free.
Mosquito services, like Zap Pest Control , suggest that kids and pets stay inside when you are spraying outside. They should stay there for an hour more after spraying. Pyrethroids could be very toxic to fish and bees and that is why they should not be used on decorative ponds.
Mosquitoes thrive close to standing water and that’s why you have to dump water from old tires, buckets, flower pots as well as toys such as Frisbees. According to studies, the efficiency of mosquito control solutions that claim to be all natural are commonly unreliable. Those who want natural sprays may try them to see if they can help. They can always use a registered insecticide if they think the latter is better.
