Mosquitos Are More Than a Nuisance
Most people think mosquitos are merely an annoyance that we must deal with from late spring until early fall, but the effects of a mosquito bite can last well into the winter months. These pests are the deadliest animals on the planet, killing nearly one million people yearly by infecting them with diseases during feeding. Mosquito-Borne Illnesses
When mosquitoes bite an infected person or animal, they can ingest the disease-causing pathogens. Then, when they bite their next victim, they can transmit those pathogens and spread the illness.
While mosquito-borne illnesses are rarer in America than in Nigeria and Brazil, they still occur. The CDC reports increasing numbers of confirmed cases yearly in the United States of the West Nile Virus, malaria, and dengue, all caused by mosquito bites.
Of the 200 mosquito species in the United States, only 12 can spread microbes, making you and your family ill. Unfortunately, Georgia consistently ranks in the top 10 most-infested states, making mosquito control in Loganville, GA, necessary.
Mosquitoes are dangerous to pets as well. Unprotected dogs and cats bitten by mosquitoes can contract deadly heartworms, horses are subjected to Equine Encephalitis, and West Nile also affects animals bitten by a carrier mosquito.
If someone in your household suffers from mosquito allergies, the consequences of forgetting your bug spray are much more severe than an itchy welt. Depending on the intensity of the allergy, reactions can range from swelling and redness to anaphylaxis.
Even when a mosquito bite isn’t from an insect carrying a pathogen, the irritating itch causes scratching. Once scratching breaks the skin, there’s a risk of bacteria entering the wound and causing a secondary infection.
Pests We Control
Bigham Pest Service’s 5-Step Mosquito Control Process
For the best mosquito control, Bigham Pest Services has developed a comprehensive solution that targets the root cause of mosquito infestations.
Step 1: Eliminate Standing Water
Mosquitos require stagnant water to breed, with females laying up to 100 eggs at a time. They prefer standing water in cool, damp, dark areas where the eggs will have in 4-5 days and are unlikely to be disturbed by predators or wind.
Taking a proactive approach by eliminating any areas of standing water disrupts the breeding process before they can grow into biting adults.
Step 2: Apply Liquid Insecticide to Grass and Shrubs
Adult mosquitos hide in dense vegetation during the day, seeking shelter from the heat. We target these foliage-filled areas to reduce the current mosquito population, decreasing the number of adult mosquitoes for future breeding.
Step 3: Treat Plants and Landscaping
Many people are surprised to learn mosquitoes feed on more than our blood. Both males and non-breeding females eat plant nectar and foliage. To make this food source unpalatable, we treat the bottoms of the leaves and eliminate the food source.
This treatment makes your yard less appealing to the mosquito population and eliminates the male mosquitos’ only food source to slow breeding.
Step 4: Apply Insect Growth Regulator
Insect growth regulators (IGRs) are a marvel of modern pest control science. IGRs disrupt the normal development of insect larvae, so they never reach adulthood. This step effectively stops the mosquitoes from maturing into breeding adults.
Step 5: Apply Larvicide to Any Standing Water
For any remaining standing water that we can’t remove, such as ponds and birdbaths, we treat these potential breeding grounds with an animal-safe larvicide. These larvicides target the mosquitos before they can develop into adults, eliminating them from the breeding population.
