College Station Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes are a real nuisance and in Texas, they are prevalent all year long. You may want to employ some mosquito control measures in your yard so you can enjoy your backyard barbecues once again. However, there are many more reasons mosquito control is so important. Below, our College Station mosquito control experts explain more about the importance of mosquito control, why DIY measures do not usually work, and what does.
Why is Mosquito Control So Important?
Proper mosquito control can help reduce the number of itchy, red bites you may suffer when going outside. However, there are many other reasons mosquito control is even more important.
The main reason mosquito control is so crucial is to protect the health and safety of you and your family. Mosquitoes are known carriers of many diseases, and they can spread those diseases to humans with just a single bite. Some of the deadliest diseases mosquitoes spread include dengue-hemorrhagic fever, yellow fever, and malaria.
In years past, dog heartworm, multiple types of encephalitis, and West Nile Virus were some of the most common diseases transmitted by mosquitoes in the United States. While these are still prevalent, today, Chikungunya, Dengue fever, and the Zika virus are more common. Approximately one million people around the world die every year from mosquito-borne illnesses. The only way to prevent yourself and your loved ones from contracting these ailments is to reduce the number of pests in your yard with proper mosquito control.
Issues with DIY Mosquito Control
Many people are reluctant to hire a professional mosquito control service because they think it is too costly. They also believe they can combat the pests on their own. Unfortunately, these measures are not the best way to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard.
Citronella candles, bug zappers, and DIY sprays are some of the most common ways people try to take care of their mosquito problem on their own. These methods partially effective. Candles are not enough to deter mosquitoes from entering a yard, and they are only effective when they are lit, which is often sporadically. Bug zappers, on the other hand, only eliminate a very small portion of a mosquito population. Do-it-yourself sprays repel them but do not ultimately control mosquitoes over the long term.
To effectively get rid of a mosquito problem, it is always best to hire a professional. Our College Station mosquito control experts can save you the cost and stress of doing it yourself.
