The Best In Mosquito Protection For Montgomery Businesses
When it comes to pests, few are as obnoxious to deal with as mosquitoes. They swarm in large numbers, buzz nonstop, and bite which can cause itchy red welts. What’s worse, mosquitoes can also be dangerous as they are known to spread a number of harmful bloodborne illnesses. If that’s not bad enough, mosquitoes can also be detrimental to Montgomery businesses. As such, it’s important for Montgomery business owners to know the steps they can take to make their establishments less hospitable for mosquitoes. This means knowing what attracts mosquitoes to a business in the first place, and the steps you can take to limit those factors. Furthermore, you also need to know about the effective mosquito control options you can rely on to keep mosquitoes away.
What Are Mosquitoes
Mosquitoes are small fly-like insects that have six long legs, thin bodies, and tube-like mouthparts that they use for feeding. Only female mosquitoes feed on blood as they require a certain enzyme found in it to produce viable eggs. Male mosquitoes instead feed on sweet substances such as plant nectar.
Problems That Mosquitoes Can Cause For Businesses
There’s no shortage of issues mosquitoes can pose to area businesses. Businesses that can be affected by mosquitoes include commercial outdoor areas, resorts, recreational parks, and restaurants without outdoor seating. Not only can mosquitoes threaten the safety of your customers and employees, but they can also drive business away. After all, no one wants to spend time in an area where they are constantly being tormented by obnoxious pests.
As for the threats that mosquitoes pose, there are many bloodborne illnesses that have been known to spread. These include malaria, West Nile virus, Zika virus, dengue, yellow fever, and several variations of encephalitis.
Factors That Attract Mosquitoes & How To Limit Them
One of the biggest factors that attract mosquitoes is the presence of standing water around a property. This is because mosquitoes need standing water to lay their eggs upon. As such, any standing water around your business could quite literally be a breeding ground for mosquitoes. To keep mosquitoes away from your business, you should:
- Fill in any low-lying areas or holes that could collect rainwater.
- Remove any containers or bins that might collect rainwater.
- Ensure all drains are working properly and not collecting water.
- Keep all lawns well-groomed and all vegetation trimmed back.
Bill Clark’s Mosquito Control Program
While you can take the above measures to help lower mosquito populations around your business, they won’t always be enough to make a serious impact. That’s why we here at Bill Clark Pest Control have a mosquito control program designed specifically to address mosquito infestations around businesses.
Usually performed in the morning or evening, when mosquitoes are most active, our treatment involves a misting solution designed to eliminate mosquitoes without harming people. Not only is the treatment all-natural, but it also helps to keep other pests away, too. The treatment can be implemented from our truck, or if the property is not reachable by truck, with a backpack misting system. That way you can get back to running your business as usual without needing to worry about mosquitoes bothering or threatening your employees or your customers.
