No matter how you slice it, mosquitoes suck – your blood, that is! These unfriendly pests are known to terrorize neighbourhoods in search of their next blood meal, but you can bid farewell to these bloodsuckers with a bit of help from Toodaloo! Our pest control experts have come up with a way to remove pests with an effective, all-natural approach. When you are in the market for Richmond mosquito control, look no further than our friendly, local services.
There are plenty of insects and rodents out there who are misunderstood by their human hosts. Take spiders, for example, these eight-legged animals are beneficial pests, but adult mosquitoes are all con and no pro. Because mosquito populations are such a persistent problem across Canada, insect repellents are a dime a dozen. Basic mosquito traps and baits might provide a bit of relief, but this is not enough to turn your property into a welcoming environment. When you want to make the most out of your outdoor space, it is vital to know what your problem areas are.
One of the biggest contributors to your pest problem are breeding grounds. Tracking down these troublesome areas means catching pests at every stage of their life cycles. Unlike some other pests who prefer to have their babies in warm beds, female mosquitoes depend on water to give birth. Depending on which species of mosquitoes you are dealing with, this might mean direct access to a water source or just having one nearby. From here, mosquito larvae grow in stagnant water. Having a water feature around your property can be great without proper pest control, you might be looking at a hot bed for insect activity. This is bad enough around a home, but an infestation can make or break an event space. Luckily, the highly trained technicians at Toodaloo are able to treat areas as large as campgrounds or spaces as small as backyards. Let us help you ditch the bites with our effective mosquito control.
When it comes to treating mosquitoes, laying baits and traps is not an effective approach. The most common type of mosquito bait uses carbon dioxide as an attractant. Carbon dioxide is a chemical that is breathed by humans, drawing pests in, thinking that they are about to get their beaks into a human host. Instead of taking the risk of attracting pests, Toodaloo works by preventing mosquitoes from entering your airspace. Biting bugs leave their mark on human targets in more ways than one. Sure, you get stuck with red, itchy and swollen bumps but an unlucky few might also contract West Nile Virus. While not as serious a threat as other disease transmitted by mosquito bites, it is still a serious illness. This makes proper pest control services even more important.
At Toodaloo, properties both large and small are treated using environmentally friendly methods. Swatting at skin to kill mosquitoes is an obvious approach but getting rid of pests one at a time would take forever and a day. This is why our pest experts pair treatments with a thorough inspection process. Essential oils and natural repellents are applied to exterior spaces within property lines. By creating an unappealing living space, insects are encouraged to leave all on their own. Sprays can create an effective bug barrier for up to three weeks but for those spaces that demand constant relief from insect populations, our specialists reapply treatments every 14 days.
In addition to spraying outdoor areas, our team of experts inspect properties for potential breeding grounds. Everything from a bottle cap to a decommissioned fountain can house hundreds of unwanted pests. Naturally occurring water sources like lakes pose problems but any treatable stagnant water, can be drained, and treated.
Choosing local mosquito services means timely results and expert care. Each member of the Toodaloo team is committed to getting the best results for properties in our area. By opting for local care, your specialists understand the unique issues facing your home, commercial property or event space. Let us help to create a welcoming environment for your friends, family, neighbours and clients. While we are confident in our results, Toodaloo also offers up aftercare for those properties with stubborn infestations. By providing clients with information, we help to reduce the number of hostile takeovers carried out by these buzzing bugs.
Depending on the location of your property, mosquito season can last months at a time. When basic mosquito repellents just aren’t cutting it, a natural approach can. Mosquitoes breed quickly, making decisive action important. Fast service is great but effective service is better, with Toodaloo, you can have both.
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.
