Summer months should be spent outdoors, but this is tough to do with pests lurking around every corner. Something as simple as an afternoon walk can mean itchy, red bites being left behind. Don’t waste nice weather by being trapped indoors when you can kick those critters to the curb. When you are ready to get rid of the biting bugs surrounding your home, workspace or event centre, just call Toodaloo! Our Thunder Bay mosquito control programs work to remove insects at every stage of their life cycle through all-natural methods.
The world seems to have a never-ending supply of mosquitoes. No matter where you look, there is a bug buzzing nearby. Mosquito bites are enough to ruin a day in the park, but they are also known to terrorize important events. No one wants to spend their wedding day or family reunion swatting at their skin, hoping to take out one of these annoying pests and this puts pressure on property owners. This applies to all types of properties in the Thunder Bay area.
Commercial spaces and restaurants, sports fields, outdoor event centres and even homes suffer with adult mosquitoes nearby. Instead of losing money on bookings or having customers pass your patio by, let a Toodaloo expert show you how effective mosquito control is done! Every year, property owners spend their time and hard-earned money to try to combat infestations around their space. There are plenty of options for mosquito traps and insect repellents at your neighbourhood hardware store but most of these are not effective enough to make a difference.
Over the counter baits and treatments utilize everything from carbon dioxide and bacillus thuringiensis to harsh chemicals. This might create a temporary barrier between bugs and yourself but when you really want to get results, it is important to prevent mosquitoes breeding nearby. Preventing mosquitoes from taking over your property begins from the egg stages and up.
More than just being a minor annoyance, bug bites are known to transmit disease. Becoming a blood meal for a pest might mean everything from itchy welts, to allergic reactions to West Nile Virus. Because it is a health hazard, it is that much more important to kill mosquito populations or find ways to remove them from your outdoor space.
While they might look the same to us, these pests come in a wide variety of types. With so many species of mosquitoes roaming the Canadian landscape, it is important to know what you are working with. It is common enough for insects to be drawn to damp spaces, but no one loves stagnant water like a mosquito does.
Whether you notice them or not, there are mosquitoes laying eggs in the standing water on your property. It might be a bird bath, fountain, an unemptied pool or even a bottle cap but anything that can collect water can collect mosquito larvae.
Spraying yourself with mosquito repellent every hour to limit bites is not a nice way to spend the day. In fact, plenty of Canadians try to avoid these chemical options. In order to protect our clients and the environment, Toodaloo has come up with a completely natural system for keeping bugs at bay.
In order to get the best results for our clients, the pest control experts at Toodaloo have come up with a system to not only treat adult pests, but eggs and larvae as well. By combining essential oils and other natural repellents, our specialists are able to create an environment that is unappealing for pests but welcoming for guests.
This natural approach allows spray treatments to be applied right to grass and greenery without the threat of burning or damage. These barrier sprays keep pests away for up to 21 days. This makes natural treatment perfect for short term events or long-term mosquito control. Instead of waiting for the clock to run out and pests to return, the Toodaloo method reapplies sprays every two weeks. This process keeps pests away for longer periods and a bit of regular care can mean months of pest-free outdoor fun.
Choosing local care for your pest control needs means timely service and access to all the after care and resources that you can ask for! There are plenty of larger companies to choose from when it comes to pest control needs but they lack a personal touch. Why be another number on a call sheet when you can have a member of your community providing your care?
When you want the best in care, look no further than your neighbourhood Toodaloo technician. Our experts are available for regularly scheduled applications, as well as one-time call outs.
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.
