Mosquito Pest Control
If anyone knows, Wisconsinites know: Mosquitoes suck. Thanks to Wisconsin's 15,000+ freshwater lakes, mosquitoes have plenty of breeding territory and only a few months where it's warm enough to breed successfully. This is the perfect storm for the mosquito-dense summers we've become used to.
How to get rid of mosquitoes.
Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to completely exterminate mosquitoes from an area - especially with DIY solutions. Some popular DIY solutions for repelling mosquitoes include:
- Chemical Repellents
- Mosquito Netting
- Mosquito Traps
- Oscillating Fans
- Outdoor Soap
- Essential Oils
If swarms of mosquitoes are too much for DIY solutions, call A-Landlords.
Southeast Wisconsin Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes are too numerous to exterminate completly and tend to converge on potential meals from all over the surrounding area. But we can drastically reduce the number of mosquitoes in a given area and prevent more from spawning.
Step 1. When A-Landlords treats your property for mosquitoes, we'll start by exterminating most of the existing population. This usually means application of a specialized chemical treatment, though each case is unique and we will apply the most appropriate method.
Step 2 is to prevent mosquito larvae from spawning. The most common method to break the mosquito life cycle is to eliminate any stagnate water and/or treat pools and ponds with a larvicide. Common areas to look for and eliminate standing water includes:
- Bird baths
- Gutter water
- Pet bowls
- Potted plants
- Small ponds
- Swimming pools
If you have a pool or pond being treated with larvicide, be sure to run the filter regularly. The most common treatment for pools and ponds is BTI. BTI is a naturally occurring bacterium found in soil, which produces toxins that target and kill mosquito larvae. BTI is non-toxic to humans. Covering your pool at night and while you're not using it can help prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs.
