Three Things You Can Do To Minimize Mosquito Exposure In Masonboro, NC

Mosquitoes are so common, that people think nothing of them. At worst, they consider the flying bugs annoying. However, this is a gross underestimation. Since mosquitoes prick and suck the blood of humans and animals, they can transmit diseases. Some of the illnesses they spread most frequently are encephalitis, and West Nile virus, and Zika virus.
The presence of these insects shouldn’t be taken lightly. Those who live close to standing water should take extra precautions because that’s where they breed. There are several things you can do to decrease the number of mosquitoes around, but here are three tips to help you control your immediate mosquito issue:

  • Tend to your lawn -  You can use a plant-safe insecticide or spray around the perimeter of your property and on your lawn. Maintain your greenery, and keep it a few feet away from your residence or business.

  • Light Candles -  Candles with essential oils like lemongrass, citronella, and peppermint have proven to repel mosquitoes.

  • Reduce Standing Water - Mosquitoes breed in standing water. Therefore, if you have a pool or bird feeder, dry it regularly. Do the same for any pet water bowls.  

The majority of mosquito prevention tactics are only moderately effective. Jay Taylor Exterminating Company’s misting and standing water systems are stronger, and will certainly get the job done. We also offer a 30-day warranty to protect your mosquito control investment. What do you have to lose? Contact us today to discuss your mosquito control options.

It may seem next to impossible to keep wood-eating termites away when wood is a pervasive part of our lives. Most buildings, furniture, and other belongings are made with it. Don’t fret though; there are plenty of ways to make your home less appealing to these wood-eating pests.
