British Columbia is known for its natural beauty, but it is hard to enjoy that when being eaten alive by bugs. When it comes to bites, fleas are a common culprit, but it is important not to underestimate just how aggressive mosquitoes can be. More than just making a blood meal out of their human hosts, these pests transmit disease, along with creating uncomfortable environment for guests, customers and residents. Instead of suffering through an invasion of insects, call Toodaloo for your Burnaby mosquito control.
There are plenty of things that can ruin an outdoor event, but few of them are as irritating as a mosquito. Carpenter ants might crawl across your picnic, but an adult mosquito can ruin your skin with bites, attack your senses with loud buzzing and even make you sick. It is difficult to believe but mosquito bites are known around the world as transmitters of disease. In a damp climate like Burnaby’s, mosquito season can last the whole summer, so why not take advantage of a pest control system that works?
Different species of mosquitoes each have their own quirks, but they do have a few things in common. For example, female mosquitoes of any type can lay hundreds of eggs and breeding grounds are dependent on a direct (or nearby) water source. For as bad as these pests can be, there aren’t a lot of treatment methods that track and treat mosquito populations properly.
While many homeowners opt for traditional, chemical repellents or carbon dioxide baits to keep insects away, our team of experts have come up with a more effective approach. Approaching your pest problem effectively means addressing insects at every stage of the life cycle. Mosquito traps can catch adult pests but ignore the next generation. Insect repellents and sprays can impact eggs and larvae, but they also introduce harmful chemicals into your breathing space. This can mean allergies, skin irritations and a negative impact on your health over prolonged periods. This is why it is so important to treat outdoor areas according to their unique needs, as well as the needs of your guests or clients. Event spaces, for example, want to create an inviting environment for their customers but this can be tough with mosquitoes laying around. When someone else’s success or milestone is dependent on you preventing mosquitoes from ruining it, there is only person that you can call: a Toodaloo technician.
In the past, bug bites have had real health hazards attached to them. Luckily, cases of disease transmitted by mosquitoes are limited in North America. Across the world, a simple bite can lead to deadly diseases like malaria but in Canada, West Nile Virus has been the prime culprit. In addition to passing illness from person to person, these bites can mean real irritants to skin. Some people have very serious skin reactions to these pests, leaving behind welts as large as a toonie, some of which even leave scarring behind. It is no wonder that no one invites these tiny terrors to their parties!
While the focus of some pest control services is to kill mosquitoes, the goal at Toodaloo is to create an excellent experience for our clients. Instead of harsh chemicals or repellents, effective mosquito control techniques use an environmentally friendly, natural approach to repelling pests but also keeping them away.
Instead of providing one-time treatments, our pest control experts are also available for scheduled, routine care. Combining careful application with essential oils and natural repellents, our Burnaby mosquito control is designed to last. In fact, each treatment lasts up to three weeks. Instead of leaving treatments until the eleventh hour, Toodaloo reapplies compounds after 14 days, keeping pests gone.
Because mosquitoes breed hundreds at a time, regular care is an important part of getting results. It is not tough to spot an adult pest flying around but eggs and mosquito larvae might as well be invisible. In addition to being tiny, eggs are (as mentioned earlier) laid in water. Having a pond or fountain on your property can lend a lot of visual appeal but when left untreated, it might be the very reason that you are dealing with an infestation of insects.
Even though humans are not just something to eat, mosquitoes don’t always see it that way. Don’t be a walking blood meal! Local pest services provide timely services and unbeatable results. Leave your standard mosquito repellents at the door and opt for a natural solution to your pest problem.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
