Seasonal Mosquito Service Plan
It’s that time of year again when mosquitoes will be lurking in shaded areas and searching for their first meal! Your team of Innovative Pest Management entomologist trained technicians are ready to fight the bite with our upcoming May thru September mosquito management programs!
On Monday, April 11th, the CDC announced that the Zika virus species is present in all or part of 30 states. With increased concerns about the potential impact on the United States, this makes a Mosquito Management plan that much more important.
There are two options available: Natural-Organic or Pyrethroid (non-organic).
Both mosquito management services involve a property-wide inspection for mosquito breeding sites and conditions, such as exterior lighting on the home, other lighting, breeding sites, etc. that attract mosquitoes to the area. Breeding sites will be treated with pelletized larvacides to reduce the development of adult mosquitoes.
Both management options also include the application of a residual repellent product (organic or pyrethroid) around doorways, windows, other structural penetrations, structures in the yard (fences, posts, the underside of decks, etc.), trees and bushes. Products are not applied directly to grass and hardscapes (patios, pavers, etc.). Our team will also round up toys, cover ponds and are trained to identify food plants to ensure that non-targeted areas are protected.
Our product options are outlined below and both options will be applied using a 25psi compressor that is designed to reach target areas only. We will not use “leaf-blower” style gas-powered machines as they are not appropriate for most “close-quarter-living” residences and drift to non-targeted areas such as windows, toys and passers-by cannot be prevented.
Our products and equipment are selected with the safety and protection of your family in mind.
