Mosquitoes are known for three things: buzzing, biting and driving humans batty. These are some of the most persistent pests across Canada but you don’t have to suffer any longer! Instead of learning to live with these unwanted insects, our Toodaloo technicians have come up with a system for banishing these bugs. When you are looking for Langley mosquito control that works, our specialists have got you covered! By serving homes, commercial properties, multi-unit areas and event spaces, Toodaloo takes the bite out of your summer season.
Biting bugs are a huge headache for property owners. Fleas and bed bugs might be the stuff of nightmares but an adult mosquito is no picnic either! Mosquito bites are itchy, they are red and they swell up but most importantly, they can transmit disease. Depending on what part of the world you are in, these bites can transmit serious disease like malaria but, in Canada, West Nile Virus is the main cause for concern. It is plain to see that it is important to keep pests away from properties and that means learning what brought them there in the first place. It is not exactly possible to ask a bug what brought it to your front door but there are a few things that you can look for.
Stagnant water is one of the biggest attractants for pests – aside from the possibility of a blood meal, of course. Many property owners do not realize that sitting water is a breeding ground for unwelcome insects. Different species of mosquitoes breed at different rates and in different areas but they always depend on a nearby water source. With female mosquitoes laying eggs around your property, you have very little hope of getting rid of your infestation. Eggs and mosquito larvae are often left out of sight until they are able to fly off, tracking down their own meals. These pests breed in the hundreds, so insect repellents and mosquito traps are in constant rotation around the Langley area. A quick slap might kill mosquitoes here and there, but only professional pest control can get the job done right.
The most common types of pest control throughout Canada are repellent sprays. Dosing yourself in these repellents means reapplying over and over again to keep the bugs at bay, but it also means dealing with harmful chemicals. Holding your breath throughout applications still leaves harsh sprays sitting against your skin. Burning citronella torches and candles might deter a few of these buzzing bugs but real relief comes from treating surrounding areas.
Carbon dioxide baits or bacillus thuringiensis treatments are common for larger properties but even these have their setbacks. A natural approach to pest removal is ideal for property owners, but short of releasing hundreds of dragonflies to eat mosquitoes, Toodaloo is your best bet. By combining essential oils and natural repellents, insects are encouraged to pack up and find a new place to call home. These treatments push mosquito populations out by creating an uninhabitable environment. Sprays can last up to three weeks but in order to keep stubborn pests away, our experts treat exterior areas every 14 days. By preventing mosquitoes from building a home of their own, you create a more comfortable atmosphere for residents, friends and guests.
Instead of spraying wildly, the experts at Toodaloo create customized treatment plans based on the unique needs of your property. Blanket treatment styles will skip over certain problem areas while others will provide less than complete treatments. In addition to the treatments themselves, our experts walk the grounds of your property, searching out potential problem areas that can be fixed. The most common areas for concern are any structures or spaces that can collect sitting water. This can mean flowerpots, bird baths, and any other areas that water can sit idly by.
It can be tough to know what to do when you are feeling overrun by pests. Basic baits and boric acid might be able to tackle the odd carpenter ant but when you want to manage pests populations – really manage them, just call Toodaloo to help treat pests at every stage of the life cycle.
After years in the industry, our experts know and understand the issues that local properties are facing. Instead of fussing around with trial and error, Toodaloo is able to provide efficient care, done quickly with the best results possible. In addition to on-site treatment, our experts provide after-care and information for clients. Knowing what to look for and taking simple steps to remove attractants from your 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.
