Landworks lawn care company has advice and services to help control mosquitoes before they become a problem. The best way to control mosquitoes is to target them at the larval stage. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so the most important step to controlling them is to remove any areas or objects that can hold water for more than one week. These areas should be drained, filled, or discarded.
Planting trays, buckets, and other empty containers should be stored inside, or upside down in a sunny place where they will dry quickly. Gutters should be cleaned each spring and fall to ensure proper drainage.
Drainage Is Key
Poor drainage provides the most problematic breeding grounds on lawns and landscapes. Landworks lawn care company offers drainage solutions to help control mosquito populations by minimizing puddling or pooling water. We also offer the application of insecticide spray to shrubbery and other dense, low-lying vegetation. The spray only kills adults and therefore needs to be reapplied regularly.
Fountains And Ponds
Water features are usually not abundant breeding grounds for mosquitoes unless they contain significant vegetation near the edge, or shallow, marshy areas. Products containing the biological control agent Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner var israelensis can be safely used to control mosquitoes in bodies of water containing fish or other beneficial aquatic wildlife.
Landworks can also install and maintain the NuTone Haven Mosquito Repellent System. The NuTone System produces an invisible zone of protection that repels biting mosquitoes. Each Mosquito repellent fixture contains a vaporizer that releases an odorless, invisible repellent that protects a 12-ft. diameter area, for up to 440 sq. ft. of coverage.
