When it is finally time to say goodbye to winter weather, Hamilton residents look forward to enjoying some much-missed sunshine – but pests don’t make this easy. Nobody wants to be a blood meal for a mosquito, but this is often the case. No matter how many layers of clothing or insect repellents you might put on, these pests always seem to sneak through. The presence of biting pests might ruin a picnic or campfire but they don’t have to! Instead of struggling with subpar methods, call Toodaloo for effective Hamilton mosquito control techniques. Our pest control specialists ban bugs from residential and business properties in your area.
When it comes to insects making a meal out of human hosts, bed bugs are a prime culprit. These bugs have taken over the hospitality and travel industries, often leaving people to forget about the tiny terrors right outside their front doors. Many pests have identifying features; spiders with webs, mice with gnaw marks and mosquitoes with their bites. Sure, these particular insects also have other poor qualities like spreading bacteria and buzzing loudly, these bites are far and wide the worst part of these pests. There is no question that quick action is key to getting rid of a potential infestation but dealing with mosquito populations is a complicated process. Laying down bait stations might work for some pests while citronella torches might discourage the odd insect but when you really want to clear a path, it is important to know exactly what you are dealing with.
It is easy to spot an adult mosquito, but these are only the tip of the iceberg. Female mosquitoes breed in the hundreds, creating swarms without humans ever noticing. The key to tracking these pests, believe it or not, is stagnant water. Depending on the species of mosquitoes around your property, these bugs rely on either direct contact or proximity to sitting water. Even the smallest of puddles can be a comfortable home to mosquitoes, laying their eggs in everything from lakes and ponds to flowerpots, bird baths and bottle caps. Ridding your home or workspace of near invisible mosquito larvae can feel impossible but our experts have developed a system to keep your space inviting and pest free for friends, guests and customers.
Preventing mosquitoes from taking over your property is about more than just enjoying your outdoor space, it is about your health. For most, bites are an annoying inconvenience but for some they are a much bigger allergy. Insect bites are a common allergen, so these bites can become swollen and painful in addition to being itchy. In addition to skin irritations, these biting bugs are also known to transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus.
Even though they might claim to kill, mosquito traps can’t put a dent in insect populations. Some of the most common ways to treat unwanted pests involve fogging with harmful chemicals or baiting with carbon dioxide. Many property owners are not keen to introduce chemicals into their living or workspaces and that is why Toodaloo takes an environmentally friendly approach. By treating areas with natural oils and repellents, mosquitoes are pushed off your property and forced to find a new home. These techniques are designed to last three weeks at a time. In order to keep up with pest populations, our specialists reapply sprays after 14 days.
Treatments can have your space pest free, but sprays do not do it on their own. The first step to any successful project is to inspect properties, identifying potential attractants for pests. Some of these, like natural bodies of water, can’t be helped but any upturned containers or incidental collecting can be drained. By taking care of potential problems, your property has an even greater chance of complete removal.
Having pests buzzing around your workspace is a pain but having them around your business or event space is even worse. Biting pests exploding out of grass and surrounding greenery is enough to discourage potential clients, sending them packing and costing you money. Don’t let bugs cheat you out of income when you can kick them to the curb with a little help from Toodaloo. Effective mosquito control does not just happen. There is no playbook for treating specific property types, but it is learned through years of trial, error and experience. Luckily for homeowners in the Hamilton area, we have already put the leg work in for you.
