Between beautiful hiking trails and seaside spaces, West Vancouver has a lot to offer. For as much as people love this area, wildlife likes it even more. Furry creatures are a common sight, but bugs are a dime a dozen. Nobody starts their day expecting to be turned into a blood meal for a pack of hungry mosquitoes, but this is often the case. Without proper care and attention, pest populations can take over outdoor spaces in no time at all. When you want to enjoy the Summer sunshine without the threat of bug bites, the experts at Toodaloo have got you covered! An effective West Vancouver mosquito control program addresses any and all properties, banishing bugs and creating a welcoming environment.
It is not uncommon to have pests pop up around your home or business. You might hear them buzzing before you catch sight of them, or they may leave a bite behind, but bugs are everywhere. It is simple enough to spot an adult mosquito but squishing one of these blood suckers is not enough to prevent a full-on infestation. When you want to treat your pest problem from the ground up, it is important to know which species of mosquitoes you are dealing with and to find out where they are breeding. With insects everywhere, it can be tough to track where they are coming from.
Side-stepping a puddle around your property is simple enough but these are dangerous areas knowing that mosquitoes breed in or near water. Female mosquitoes navigate to sitting water to lay their eggs. Unlike humans, insects do not have one baby at a time, they have hundreds! Eggs and mosquito larvae sit around stagnant water until they are grown enough to find their own meals. From here, human hosts become a free for all!
Everyone knows that mosquito bites leave itchy, red welts behind but there is more to them than just that. Globally, mosquitoes are known to transmit serious diseases such as malaria or West Nile Virus. These types of health risks are what makes getting rid of insect populations so important. When you need to clear an area of pests, don’t believe the buzz around basic mosquito traps and baits. Insect repellents might provide temporary relief, but these harsh chemicals are not as effective as a planned, natural approach.
There are plenty of baits and sprays that claim to kill mosquitoes. Because of how irritating these pests can be, there is a huge market for products that kill or repel them. Property owners can spend hundreds of dollars on sprays, creams and torches that do little more than introduce chemicals into your environment. There are natural measures that might mimic carbon dioxide or scents to lure and trap these buzzing bugs but when you really want to keep them away, it is important to combine training with treatment.
Treatment: Toodaloo pest experts combine essential oils with other natural repellents to create an inhospitable environment for pests. Instead of dealing with pests as they come, our specialists take the fight to them. By ushering these uninvited guests off your property, you are treating populations at all stages of their life cycles. Unlike other repellents, mosquito control at Toodaloo creates a barrier around your property instead of your person. These barrier sprays are known to last for 21 days. This makes spray treatments perfect for special events, but it also means long-term results for businesses.
Specialized outdoor services and event centres rely on a steady flow of bookings and clients to stay afloat. It is a tough sell to book a wedding when the bride is being covered in bites and difficult to schedule a golf tournament with tiny terrors ruining your tee-time. A pest free environment can benefit all types of properties, from backyards to campgrounds. Instead of waiting for the clock to run out on your treatments, a Toodaloo technician reapplies sprays after two weeks, keeping pest solutions fresh and bugs away.
Training: Part of what makes the Toodaloo technique so effective is that we don’t stop at sprays. If pests are piling up around your home or workspace, there is something that brought them there. Aside from a hot meal, this is usually stagnant water. It can be easy to go snow-blind to sitting water when you are used to seeing it every day. From east to west and south to north, Vancouver is known for its damp climate. Allowing rainwater to collect in a flowerpot or bird bath might as well be an invitation to an infestation. Our team of specialists walk the grounds around your property, identifying problem areas and emptying standing water where possible.
Choosing local services means dealing with members of your community who are familiar with all of the issues that property owners are facing. Using a trial and error method can take years to perfect while a “one-size-fits-all” approach can leave properties short-changed. Instead of settling for “okay”, get the best results possible by consulting a Toodaloo technician. Creating customized care plans means getting the best results for our clients. Each member of our team is dedicated to improving communities and creating welcoming environments and neighbourhoods. Because spray treatments are all natural, clients can rest assured that they will not be dealing with damage to their lawns or other greenery.
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.
