Common Mosquito and Tick Concerns


Mosquitos often thrive in wet environments. Mosquitos bite humans in order to gain nutrients that they use to reproduce. Populations can grow quickly, laying up to 3,000 eggs in the span of two weeks. Chemical treatments can be used to control these populations and to create a zone of protection around your property, minimizing the risk of bites and disease spread to humans.


Tick populations grow as quickly if not quicker than mosquitos. To feed, ticks bite a host and will latch to the skin using their mouth. The primary risks associated with ticks are Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other tick-borne illnesses. Treated properly, tick populations can be controlled and repelled using spray insecticides.

Why are Mosquito & Tick Services Recurring?

When dealing with mosquitoes, a mosquito barrier treatment is used to eliminate them on contact and has a lasting effect up to two months. Following your first service appointment, we will schedule recurring visits to ensure that our pest control technicians will complete upkeep on your property at your convenience. To maintain a mosquito-free environment all year long, we recommend getting four treatments throughout the year.
