Nobody likes getting bitten by mosquitoes. Their buzzing in your ear, the irritating itch is maddening and distracting and some people are prone to the bite site becoming infected. It’s enough to put you off your summer BBQ!
MOSQUITO TREATMENT & CONTROL
It is almost impossible to have no mosquitoes. After all, mosquitoes are flying insects. However, if your property is vulnerable to large numbers of mosquitoes, we can ‘control’ breeding and minimise numbers using our professional, high-grade repellent and portable misting device (in suitable environments).
Our treatment envelopes plant foliage but doesn’t damage the plant. We use water-based chemicals. There are no solvents involved and there is no overspray.
In the heat of the day, when mosquitoes take refuge on the underside of leaves, they encounter the chemical and ingest it.
Our treatment proves very effective. It must be applied on dry, calm days and requires re-treatment around every 6 to 8 weeks. If our initial spray takes place in November, you may need 3 to 4 treatments throughout the summer season to maintain the prevention program.
In order for us to assess your property for mosquito treatment, give us a call to arrange a no obligation visit and estimate.
KEEPING MOSQUITOES AT BAY FOR YOUR HEALTH
Mosquitoes can share blood-borne diseases with us like Ross River Fever and Barmah Forest Virus, even Dengue Fever in more tropical regions – all debilitating illnesses that can significantly impact your life for weeks to months.
The only way to limit your chance of infection with such viruses is to prevent being bitten in the first place – which can be easier said than done
To minimise mosquito action affecting your family, friends and pets, take note of the following recommendations:
- Wear light clothing and covered footwear when you’re outside, particularly at dawn and dusk when mosquito activity is most likely.
- Use high quality personal repellents on all exposed skin and re-apply as per product instructions.
- Ensure all windows and doors are screened and in good repair.
- Use mosquito coils outdoors and vaporising mats indoors.
- If doors, windows, vents and chimneys aren’t screened, sleep under mosquito netting at night.
- Ensure you’re not harbouring mosquito larvae in containers holding stagnant water like buckets, pot plant bases, toddler pools and roof guttering.
- Check septic and water tanks are covered and screened securely.
