Friday FAQ: How Does Our Mosquito Reduction Plan Work?

Welcome to another edition of Friday FAQ! Today, we're answering a common question we receive from our clients: How does Paragon Pest Control's Mosquito Reduction Plan work? With the warmer months approaching, it's crucial to understand how you can keep your outdoor spaces mosquito-free. Let's dive in!

Understanding Mosquito Behavior

Mosquitoes are not just annoying; they can also be dangerous, carrying diseases like Zika virus, West Nile virus, and more. They breed in standing water and are most active during dawn and dusk. Our Mosquito Reduction Plan is designed to target mosquitoes at every stage of their life cycle, providing a comprehensive solution to keep your yard comfortable and safe.

Step 1: Property Inspection

Our expert technicians begin with a thorough inspection of your property to identify potential breeding sites and areas of high mosquito activity, such as standing water and dense vegetation.

Step 2: Installing In2Care Buckets

A key component of our plan is the installation of In2Care buckets. These innovative devices attract egg-laying female mosquitoes. When they come into contact with the water in the bucket, they pick up a larvicide and a fungus. As they move to other breeding sites, they spread the larvicide, killing larvae in those areas, and the fungus eventually kills the adult mosquitoes.

Step 3: Larvicide and Adulticide Treatments

In addition to In2Care buckets, we apply a larvicide treatment to other standing water sources to prevent mosquito larvae from maturing. We also use a specialized misting application to target adult mosquitoes in their resting places, such as trees, bushes, and under decks.

Step 4: Regular Maintenance

Mosquito control requires ongoing effort. Our team will schedule regular follow-up visits to maintain the In2Care buckets, reapply treatments as needed, and ensure your property remains mosquito-free throughout the season.

Additional Tips for Homeowners

While our Mosquito Reduction Plan is highly effective, homeowners can take steps to minimize mosquito activity:

  • Eliminate standing water sources where mosquitoes can breed.

  • Keep your yard trimmed and free of debris.

  • Use outdoor fans to create air movement that mosquitoes dislike.

  • Install screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
