Summer Event In New York Ruined By Mosquitoes!◀ Back To Blog
July 25, 2016
If the title of this article was a news headline run as many times as it actually occurs, we'd never stop seeing it. Mosquitoes ruin summer events all the time! It's crazy! And, since no one in the history of the world has ever said, "Man! I'm glad those mosquitoes were eating me alive," it might be a good idea to get mosquito services if you're planning a summer event you want people to remember--in a good way. Fortunately, Thomas Pest Services has solutions that will help you take a bite out of the mosquito population before your guests arrive. Here are a few things you should know about mosquito treatment services from Thomas.
Mosquitoes don't often travel very far in their lifetime. These insects are horrible fliers and that is why a good breeze can keep them away. So, the mosquitoes that are biting you on your property probably came from your property--or your neighbor's property; which is a big reason why mosquito services work to make outdoor events more enjoyable.
Mosquitoes hide from the midday sun. These insects need moisture and the sun dries them out. For this reason, mosquitoes are likely to hide in your bushes and other foliage when they come into your yard. If you have ongoing mosquito treatments, they will find death waiting for them there. That means you're not only stopping mosquitoes in your own yard, you're actively protecting against mosquitoes that visit your yard gathering from the area around your property.
Most people don't realize how many places in their yard can give mosquitoes the perfect breeding place. Our specialists here at Thomas know where mosquitoes breed. We will help you identify things that can be changed to stop them from breeding in your yard and offer treatments that can protect breeding sites that can't be changed. This reduction of breeding sites will make a giant impact on your outdoor event. The last thing you need is a bunch of mosquitoes hatching the day before the big day. If you're going to have dancing, you would probably prefer to have it be because the DJ picked all the right songs and not because your friends and family were trying to keep the mosquitoes from leaving another red, itchy welt.
Mosquitoes aren't just an irritation. With the Zika virus making national news, practically every week, you might have fewer guests, simply for fear of contracting this virus. But, letting them know you've taken measures to reduce and stop mosquitoes can go a long way to reducing their fear as well.
Can you have an outdoor event with mosquitoes? Yup. People do it all the time. But it is so much nicer without them. If you're planning an event in New York, make mosquito services from Thomas Pest Services a part of your plan, and make an event everyone will be happy to remember.
