New Westminster is home to heritage buildings, a thriving restaurant scene, creative architecture – and mosquitoes. It can be tough to enjoy all that New West has to offer when being attacked by buzzing bugs and annoying insects. Instead of coating yourself with insect repellents and hoping for the best, more and more property owners are choosing professional pest care for their outdoor spaces. At Toodaloo, our New Westminster mosquito control programs are able to keep bugs at bay for weeks at a time, using an all-natural approach.
Different pests seem to plague different areas and industries. Bed bugs effect tourism, a lack of bird control can impact businesses and carpenter ants annoy homeowners, but mosquito populations are everywhere. Instead of sticking to one area, these insects spread their wings and invade properties of all types. If you are noticing more and more of these uninvited guests buzzing around your home or workspace, there is likely a reason for it. Sure, the main attractant for biting bugs is their next blood meal but there are always other factors at play.
More than just a single type, there are plenty of species of mosquitoes throughout the world. No matter which type you are dealing with, female mosquitoes have one thing in common: water. Mosquitoes breed either directly in or near standing water. Something as simple as a puddle or an unemptied bird bath can act as a breeding ground for hundreds of these pests. When you want to get rid of your infestation, it is important to treat insects at every stage of their life cycles, from eggs to mosquito larvae.
Mosquito traps might be able to catch and hold adult mosquitoes, but these are not enough to improve the overall condition of your outdoor space. More sophisticated baits might use carbon dioxide to lure and trap pests, but these can only hold so many bodies! When you are looking to kill mosquitoes, chemical sprays can do the trick, but you are doing just that, introducing chemicals into your environment. No one wants their clothes and skin to smell like chemicals and bug sprays – or even worse, breathe them in! There isn’t much point in trading harmful bites with harmful sprays. Luckily, the pest and wildlife control experts at Toodaloo are offering a natural approach to treating structures and surrounding areas.
There is nothing nice about mosquito bites. Sure, they leave swollen, itchy welts behind but there is more to them than just basic skin irritations. Globally, these bites are known to transmit disease. Depending on what part of the world you are in, these can transmit serious illnesses like malaria but in Canada, we are more concerned with the West Nile Virus. Basic, residential pest control might provide superficial relief but when you want bugs gone, it is important to work from the ground, up.
Properties come in all shapes and sizes but all of them need proper pest care. By using non-chemical sprays, our mosquito treatments can be applied directly to lawns and green spaces without the threat of damage. These barrier sprays work by preventing mosquitoes from settling down in your space.
When you are ready to ditch the repellents, mosquito control programs are your answer. Each spray treatment combines essential oils and other natural repellents, using these to create an unappealing environment for pests. Instead of hunting insects one by one, this method encourages them to leave on their own and discourages any new intruders from landing. These treatments last up to three weeks, but can be re-applied over and over, staying effective. This makes our methods perfect for both short and long-term needs. Instead of waiting for sprays to wear off, Toodaloo technicians return to properties after 14 days to ensure that pests stay away.
Instead of relying on spray treatments alone, our experts put their training to good use! By walking the grounds of your property, members of the Toodaloo team can pinpoint any potential problem areas. While sprays provide a strong barrier, it never hurts to take extra precautions. Emptying standing water can help to discourage any rogue pests from getting comfortable around your space.
Whether you are dealing with areas as small as backyards or as large as campgrounds, our specialists have got you covered! Choosing local services means timely results and excellent after-care resources. Providing clients with helpful tips, tricks and information not only helps to maintain results but it also helps property owners to better understand how to keep themselves, their visitors and their clients safe and happy.
Creating a welcoming environment is key to a happy and healthy business or living space. You might spend tons of time and energy creating an ideal indoor space but that won’t stop insects from performing a hostile takeover. Don’t let mosquitoes make a meal out of you when local pest experts can help to build a barrier between you and them.
