Everyone enjoys summer sunshine, but no one loves it like mosquitoes do. These pests take full advantage of the warm weather, preying on hikers, sportsmen and any other humans who just happen to be outdoors. More than ruining a day at the beach, a swarm of these biting pests can wreck a wedding, fumble a family picnic or turn a camping trip into a catastrophe. Mosquito bites can put a real damper on your outside enjoyment, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Instead of learning to live with unwanted insects, call Toodaloo for local North Vancouver mosquito control. Our experts have come up with a way to keep pests away from properties for three weeks at a time! Say goodbye to bugs and hello to freedom with a bit of help from local pest control services.
Unlike some other pests, adult mosquitoes are fairly predictable. These pests are fueled by blood meals and breeding grounds are easy to track, if you know what to look for. It is easy to follow the buzzing of a full-grown bug but eggs and mosquito larvae are more difficult to deal with. Basic insect repellents might protect your person for a while but when you want complete and lasting results, you will have to think bigger than that. They might all look the same to us but there are plenty of species of mosquitoes out in the world. Depending on type, female mosquitoes depend on water sources to lay their eggs. Some of these pests need direct access while others just need to have a bit of stagnant water nearby. In either case, sitting water is a key element of ditching your mosquito population. Because mosquitoes breed in the hundreds, quick action can make all the difference to your end result.
More than just being a nuisance, biting pests can be a hazard to your health. For some, a bug bite might leave nothing but a small bump behind but for others, they can mean serious allergic reactions. In addition to irritating skin, mosquito bites are known to transmit disease. During mosquito season, Vancouver residents are forced to consider the passing of West Nile Virus. Instead of worrying about your health, get back to enjoying the great outdoors with a bit of help from Toodaloo.
At Toodaloo, our main goal is preventing mosquitoes from laying down roots by creating an unwelcoming environment for pests and an inviting space for people. Property owners try to achieve this by using mosquito traps or baits. Mosquito repellents come in all shapes and forms, but few provide more than a couple feet of safe zone, leaving surrounding areas opened to swarms. Carbon dioxide baits can also be used to lure and kill mosquitoes, but they do so in smaller numbers. Instead of wasting time and money on ineffective treatments, let our experts take an all-natural approach to your outdoor space.
Combining essential oils and other natural repellents and applying them directly to green spaces creates a barrier between insects and nesting grounds. While you might find these smells inviting, they will send mosquitoes running in the other direction. More than just looking for something to eat, mosquitoes are always in the market for a new home base. Thorough applications mean an inhospitable space for pests, pushing them out and forcing them to find a new home. This treatment method gets rid of mosquitoes at every stage of their life cycles. Sprays stay effective for up to three weeks, making them an effective choice for short- and long-term engagements. Preparing for a wedding or family reunion? Call Toodaloo. Clearing the way for a two-week camping trip? Call Toodaloo. Don’t want to see a mosquito for the whole Summer? We have got you covered.
Instead of waiting for the clock to run out on your treatments, sprays can be reapplied every 14 days to ensure that those bugs don’t come back. In addition to the treatments themselves, Toodaloo experts provide clients with tips and tricks to help reduce the risk of pest infestations going forward.
