Mosquito Control

 

We all enjoy the benefits rain brings ... greener grass, more beautiful shrubbery and showy flowers. Most of us also enjoy warm weather. Unfortunately warm wet weather in North Carolina during spring, summer and fall also brings mosquitoes with it. And mosquitoes bring with them some serious problems. According to the North Carolina Mosquito & Vector Control Association, one of the key problems mosquitoes bring with them is disease. And the disease that most people are worried about today is the Zika virus. Since there is no vaccine or medication to prevent or treat Zika virus infections it is important that mosquito control be implemented before they can infect humans. Of course there are other diseases that mosquitoes spread as well. These include:

 

  • West Nile Virus
  • malaria
  • encephalitis
  • heart worm (in pets)
  • Dengue Fever
  • Yellow Fever

You wouldn't wish these diseases on anyone. Mosquito control by Mosquito Tek is the most effective way to prevent these dangerous diseases from spreading.

 

Flea and Tick Control

 

Fleas and ticks can make your pets very uncomfortable. These pests make your pets itch and scratch and generally miserable. But ticks and fleas can also spread diseases.

 

Tick bites can cause:

  • Lyme disease in humans – a disease which can cause serious problems
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in humans – accompanied by joint pain, swollen lymph nodes
  • paralysis in pets – a tick shoots a toxin into your pet that makes your pet's legs and muscles go limp

Fleas are also serious health threats in the following ways:

  • anemia and low iron levels in pets
  • tapeworms – when a dog or cat swallows a flea infected with tapeworm larvae
  • allergies
  • cat scratch fever – although infected cats may not show symptoms they can pass this on to humans

 As you can tell, none of the above diseases or conditions are pleasant. Mosquito Tek is the best way to control these annoying, disease causing pests.

 

Ineffective Do-It-Yourself solutions

One of the biggest problems with DIY pest control solutions is that people don't read the labels. When people don't read labels improper application of the product occurs and may actually create environmental or personal hazards. Without the help of a pro, people have accidentally started fires, contaminated property and/or water, and even poisoned pets. Never mind that many over-the-counter products are ineffective and can even make the problem worse.

 

 

Example 1: If you use pesticides on ants, the live ants may send a distress signal back to the colony. The ants then spread into satellite colonies making the original problem worse.

 

Example 2: Researchers at Ohio State University recently conducted a study on 'bug bomb' products. They used 5 different bed bug populations and they found that bug bombs were virtually useless on bed bugs that live in people's homes.
 

Example 3: According to AMCA (American Mosquito Control Association), at least 10 studies in the past 15 years have unanimously denounced ultrasonic devices as having no repellency value. 

 

Example 4: According to the AMCA (American Mosquito Control Association) 'bug-zappers' , in various studies have been shown to have no significant impact on the number of mosquitoes found in yards.
