WHERE EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE IS ROUTINE
Mosquitoes have piercing and sucking mouthparts and are attracted to their hosts once they detect warmth, moisture from the body and carbon dioxide being breathed out into the atmosphere. Perspiration on the human body may also be an attractant.
Non-chemical methods can significantly reduce mosquito populations, mainly by the elimination of breeding sites, which is anywhere water is held; in pot plants, pools, swamps, dams, rock pools, discarded car tyres, old cans and tins – in fact anywhere water can be retained and left largely undisturbed, particularly during the warmer months. Guttering around a roof that retains water for several weeks is another major mosquito breeding site which often goes unnoticed.
Door and window screens may restrict the entry of mosquitoes into houses but do not reduce mosquito numbers.
There are several types of non-chemical and chemical management measures that are available.
Call the professionals at ProPest Pest Management Services to discuss your options and arrange a convenient time for a Technician to address your concern/s.
