Canada is known for rugged terrain, mountain views and sprawling prairies but it can be tough to enjoy these outdoor features when being eaten by bugs. Pests are an unfortunate part of life outside, but they do not have to limit your summer fun. Instead of being a blood meal for adult mosquitoes, property owners can opt for expert, in-depth mosquito control services. Don’t waste time and money on ineffective insect repellents when you can call the pros to get the best results possible. When you want to evict the insects around your home or workspace, no one does it better than Toodaloo! Our experts provide an all-natural approach to pest control that banishes bugs for weeks at a time.
When dealing with mosquito infestations, one of the biggest issues facing property owners is their mobility. Unlike dealing with rodents, you can’t just seal up a hole to keep them out. Each time you open a door or window, there is a chance that one of these buzzing insects is going to sneak in right behind you. Short of shutting yourself up indoors for the entirety of mosquito season, there is no way to prevent this – until now!
The best way to prevent pests from sneaking indoors, is to make sure that they aren’t crowding your outdoor areas. This might sound impossible but the experts at Toodaloo have developed an effective system that combines understanding and inspection. When you want to remove insects at every stage of their life cycles, it is important to search out breeding grounds and other problem areas. The needs of each species of mosquito will vary slightly but they do have one thing in common: water. Because mosquitoes breed, laying their eggs either directly in or adjacent to stagnant water, moisture can be a real problem. Everything from a partially emptied pool to bird baths and flowerpots can be home to hundreds of mosquito larvae.
When you swat and kill mosquitoes, you are treating a symptom of your problem and not the cause. This is the main issue with relying on basic repellents: mosquitoes are everywhere! Higher end mosquito traps might make use of carbon dioxide baits or physical enclosures but there is only so much that these can do. With female mosquitoes having hundreds of offspring throughout the year, it is important to cover your pest populations from the ground up.
One of the main methods of dealing with mosquitoes is through harsh chemical sprays. Instead of keeping mosquito bites at bay, all that this does is introduce unpleasant chemicals into your environment. No one wants to spend their time breathing in (or smelling like) harsh chemicals but this is the sad reality for property owners and guests who are at the end of their ropes. By opting for barrier spray treatments, Toodaloo clients can avoid the sprays while still getting the same – if not better – results.
In addition to ruining your skin, mosquito bites are known to transmit disease. Bites and stings in general are subject to giving out allergic reactions but they can also spread more serious health issues such as West Nile Virus. This makes proper mosquito treatment not only a matter of comfort but a matter of public health as well.
Pest control is not a one method industry. Unfortunately, there is no secret recipe for a pest-free environment but customized treatment plants are the name of the game at Toodaloo. By combining essential oils and other natural repellents, our barrier sprays are able to create an inhospitable environment for pests for up to three weeks at a time. Instead of relying on a basic time frame, our experts reapply treatments after two weeks, ensuring that pests stay gone. Instead of treating these tiny terrors one by one, Toodaloo works by building an unappealing environment or bugs!
Instead of relying solely on sprays, our Toodaloo experts put their training to good use. Walk throughs and assessments are carried out alongside clients, pointing out any potential problem areas facing property owners. This can be something as obvious as a flowerpot full of water or more in-depth like slow draining. Whatever the cause may be, it is important for owners to understand the trials facing their unique spaces. Something simple like eliminating standing water might seem obvious, but it can stop mosquitoes laying eggs nearby, effecting your overall results.
Customized treatment plans can then be created for areas both large and small. By servicing residential and commercial spaces, as well as event centres, our experts can provide in-depth pest removal for any and all property types.
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.
