Why Mosquito Control Is Essential In Louisville

One of the most common – and most dangerous – pests is the mosquito in Louisville. These small pests will often buzz around your head and your ankles while you are trying to enjoy a little fresh air, especially in the early morning and evening hours. Female mosquitoes will land on you and ‘bite’ you to withdraw some blood that they need for their developing eggs leaving a raised, red, itchy welt behind – if you are lucky, though, this is all they will leave. Mosquitoes are known to carry and transmit some pretty serious illnesses. According to the CDC, some of the most common diseases include malaria, dengue fever, filariasis, West Nile virus, chikungunya, yellow fever, several forms of encephalitis, and the newly emerging Zika virus. Many of these diseases can make you very sick making mosquito control services an essential part of living and owning a business here in Louisville.

While it is true that there is no way to completely eradicate mosquitoes, Action Pest Control has the ability to severely deplete their numbers on your property. At first glance, this may not seem like a big deal, but when you realize that mosquitoes rarely travel much farther than 300 feet from their breeding site (a few species can travel about a mile), it takes on a whole new prospective. By having the trained mosquito control specialists at Action Pest Control administer effective mosquito control applications on your property during their peak season, the adult mosquitoes and eggs on your property can be eliminated leaving only the occasional straggler from another property to bother. Fewer mosquitoes mean fewer bites, and fewer bites mean less chance of a bite from an infected mosquito. It’s that simple!

Here’s how it works. Our licensed mosquito control specialists will schedule your free inspection and will arrive promptly on the appointed day to survey your property and locate the areas that mosquitoes are using for breeding sites and conditions that are drawing mosquitoes to your yard. Next, our expert will discuss the findings with you and discuss the best course of treatment. Then your property will be treated with an EPA approved product that is designed to eliminate mosquitoes that are resting in trees, shrubs, and tall grass in your yard. Also, standing water sources will be treated to prevent larva from hatching. Lastly, we will schedule regular visits throughout the mosquito’s active season to ensure that mosquito populations are kept to their lowest possible levels.
