With the warmer spring weather on its way, we have a lot to look forward to. Whether it be firing up the BBQ in the backyard and having some friends and family over, throwing on our swim shorts and heading for the beach, or maybe just even cracking the windows for the first time in a while, it sure is a change that most of us look forward to. Regardless of what it is, that gets you excited about spring, it’s close!
That being said, with the warm weather and warm weather activities come warm weather pests! Closing doors, windows, and throwing insect repellent in that beach bag comes second nature to most people during mosquito season, but did you know there is a better solution? As one of the most dreaded warm weather pests, they are also an inevitable one. As they hatch, presenting themselves by the thousands, seeking out their next meal, they become a nuisance at the very least. You could scratch for days and never be content due to the itching caused by a mosquito bite. But did you know that not only are they extremely annoying, they can be dangerous too?
It’s true! Having been known to carry diseases like chikungunya, West Nile virus, malaria, the Zika virus as well as a variety of others, mosquitoes are one pest you don’t want to ignore, and doing so could be disastrous! As they feed on their host they inadvertently spread the disease to the unsuspecting host. With mosquitoes swarming in uncountable numbers, the fact is, it only takes one to cause a life-changing effect, and putting a stop to them should be an absolute priority!
Here at Parkway Pest Services, we use Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is much safer for you, your family, and your pets, and relies on chemicals only as a last resort, ultimately using a minimal amount of them in the process. By addressing breeding sites, entry points, and anything else that attracts mosquitoes, we guarantee a drastic reduction of them, making your yard a much more pleasant place to be. Whether you need a one-time solution or a recurring service, we can handle your needs! Give us a call today to learn more about our mosquito control programs and how we can help you get the most out of the amazing spring weather we are all looking forward to.
