You don't have to be a Latin scholar to understand the issues, but some of the tongue-twisting mosquito problems Alpharetta pest control companies can conquer are as follows:
- Anopheles quadrimaculatus--This mosquito, prevalent throughout the Southeast, carries malaria, which officially was wiped out from the United States in the 1950s, but still appears in local outbreaks
- Aedes aegypti to Uranotaenia sapphirina--These are the first and last mosquito species in a list of more than 40 known to carry West Nile Virus in the United States
- La Crosse Encephalitis--Georgia reported 27 cases of this mosquito-borne disease since 1964. How comfortable are you with those odds?
- St. Louis Encephalitis--This disease carried by mosquitoes has, fortunately, struck only five Georgians since 1964.
Your family most likely will not contract a horrible illness from mosquito bites, but that does not make the bites any less irritating. The itch, the raw skin, and sometimes the bleeding puts a damper on summer fun and outdoor activities.
The repellents you spray or slather on will usually keep mosquitoes away, but Alpharetta pest control companies have the training, equipment and licenses to use insecticides far more sophisticated and focused than what you can buy in a store.
A professional integrated pest management plan means eradicating mosquitoes throughout their life cycle, from breeding grounds to on the wing. Getting rid of standing water, damp areas and animal wastes helps cut down on larvae. But there is only so much you as an Alpharetta homeowner can do.
A professional pest control company can help deal with mosquitoes coming onto your property from other locations.
