There are plenty of insects in the world who are classified as being beneficial. Some of these help to pollinate while others make meals of smaller pests. Mosquitoes are not a part of this group. Aside from being food for dragonflies, these pests drive property owners crazy with constant buzzing and bites. When you are ready to kick insects off of your property, call Toodaloo for your Coquitlam mosquito control. Our experts are able to treat spaces large and small with environmentally friendly techniques and sprays.
Pest control in Coquitlam is a complicated process. Damp climates and mild winters make it possible for insects and rodents to survive and spread their numbers throughout the year. Mosquito populations might die out during cold snaps but come spring, they are back with a vengeance. As annoying as biting pests might be during hikes, they are even more annoying around homes, workspaces, event centres and campsites. Instead of going for a walk and leaving the pests behind, those who spend a lot of time outdoors can find themselves overrun with these insects on a daily basis. Instead of slathering yourself in insect repellents, Toodaloo pest control services have developed a safe system that works!
When managing a pest problem, it is important to understand the habits of your insect intruders, as well as any risks that might be involved in removal. Wasp nests, for example are difficult and dangerous to remove without professional help. Mosquitoes might not be as dangerous as wasps, but they do still present health risks for humans. Disease like West Nile Virus have been linked to mosquito bites. These bites are known to swell and be extremely itchy. This is never a good thing but it is even worse during special events like weddings or tournaments and other sporting events. For property owners or managers, having their outdoor spaces overrun with pests can have a negative impact on quality of life and business. Don’t let annoying insects leave their mark when you can call Toodaloo for a fresh, pest-free start.
The trick to getting rid of pests around your property is to understand and treat them at every stage of the life cycle. You might be able to swat at an adult mosquito but without treating eggs and larvae, this won’t get you very far. Mosquito traps and sprays are a dime a dozen, some even going as far as to use carbon dioxide to kill these pests. Common traps might help around an enclosed patio or small space but they won’t put a dent in populations around large or wooded areas. This is why Toodaloo opts to treat spaces themselves and not just individual pests.
Like many other pests, mosquitoes thrive in damp environments. Stagnant water does more than provide a comfortable space for pests to lay low, they act as a breeding ground. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in sitting or stagnant water. Depending on the species of mosquitoes around your space, these females will have to either lay eggs directly in water or nearby. Without an accessible water source, mosquito larvae cannot survive.
Harsh chemicals might be used to kill mosquitoes around outdoor spaces, but plenty of property owners are not keen to bring dangerous insecticides into their living space.
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.
