There are many methods used for mosquito control, and Dave’s can help. Depending on the situation, source reduction, biocontrol, larviciding (control of larvae), or adulticiding (control of adults) may be used to manage mosquito populations.

These techniques are accomplished using habitat modification, such as removing stagnant water and other breeding areas, pesticide like DDT, natural predators, (eg Dragonflies, larvae-eating fish), and trapping.

To reduce your chance of being bitten, avoid being outdoors at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

Eliminate or reduce standing water on your property, which can be a breeding site for mosquitoes. Drain flower pots, swimming pool covers, barrels and other objects that can collect water on a weekly basis. Add a fountain or drip system to ponds and birdbaths on your property to keep water fresh.
Repair or replace any torn screens on windows and doors.

If you’re concerned that you have insects or rodents in your home or place of business, give Dave a call at 1-800-400-6009.
