Mosquito control is an absolute necessity this time of year in Fort Worth and all the South, but that doesn’t mean that people don’t have questions. We thought we’d sit down and answer some of the questions that we hear the most about mosquito control and treatment.
Why do I need it?
Mosquito treatment is an absolute necessity in Texas because of the climate. Mosquitoes love the heat and humidity associated with the American south, meaning they tend to live in these areas. The summers are their most productive time of year when the mornings and the evenings provide the perfect amount of heat for them. It’s also important to know that the types of mosquitoes that carry West Nile Virus are most active at these times.
Mosquitoes like to live in damp areas like puddles, pools of water, and in shady places. Unless you have the power to stop the rain, puddles for mosquitoes to reproduce in are inevitable. That’s where Ideal Partners comes in. Ideal Partners can treat your home so that you can make use of your outdoor space any time of the day without having to worry about mosquito bites.
When do I need treatment?
We talked about the time of day when mosquitoes are most active, but they also have seasons. Mosquito season generally runs from April to October, depending on the heat and when the first freeze is that year.
Treatments are typically done around once a month, but they can be done however often depending on your home’s unique circumstances.
What are my options?
Ideal Partners offers a wide range of options for dealing with mosquitoes. The go-to solution for most homes is a monthly mosquito pest control program where our experts will fog your yard every 21 days from April to October. There are also smart options like an automatic misting system and several traps to choose from that can keep mosquitoes from repopulating and coming back for a longer period of time.
