When you envision summer, do you see yourself relaxing on the deck after work with a tall glass of sweet tea in your hand? Or maybe your closest friends and family gathered together for a BBQ? However you picture it, we’re certain you don’t want your time outside interrupted by incessant buzzing and dive-bombing critters trying to bite you. Nope, you definitely don’t want to deal with mosquitoes. Unfortunately if you live in Albany, avoiding these pests is going to be hard.
Albany along with Schenectady and Troy all made this year’s Worst U.S. Cities For Mosquitoes List. That’s right these New York cities along with several other cities across the country have the dubious distinction for having the worst mosquito problem. Yeah for us - not. If you live in any of the three cities, don’t be disheartened. We bring good news! Thomas Pest Services is ready, willing and able to help you control mosquito activity on your property.
Before we discuss how we treat for mosquitoes, we would point out that mosquitoes are more than a nuisance pest. They have the ability to carry and transmit a variety of disease to people including the West Nile virus and Chikungunya. While not common here in the United States, mosquitoes also spread malaria, yellow fever and dengue fever.
So how do we help you get rid of mosquitoes? Well first we must point out that you will never completely control mosquitoes. After all, these pests fly and will travel looking for a blood meal. What we will do is inspect your property to identify areas where mosquitoes breed and and rest. Tall grasses, heavy vegetation, holes in trees and standing water all attract these pesky bugs. After our inspection is complete, we’ll apply treatment to areas where mosquitoes breed and where adult mosquitoes hang out.
If you’re tired of all the mosquito bites, make this the summer you start protecting yourself and family from these pests. Take back your yard with help from Thomas Pest Services, contact us today!
