Mosquitos

mosquitoes front pageIf you have an infestation of pesky mosquitoes in your Louisville, KY or Southern Indiana yard IPM Services can help you with your insect control needs.

Mosquitoes are a pesky summer nuisance and can keep you from enjoying the outdoor weather.

Certain land features, such as swamps, reservoirs and retention ponds are virtual breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Smaller areas of standing water, such as a bird bath or a wheel barrel with rain water in it can also be a breeding area for mosquitos.

Even worse than the red itchy welts they leave is the fact that they can also transmit disease.  Though some may only consider them a nuisance, mosquitoes are actually responsible for more human deaths than any other insect.  A mosquito can transmit diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, and encephalitis. The well-known and well-publicized West Nile Virus (an Encephalitis virus) first appeared in the Western hemisphere in 1999 and quickly spread to infect people in every state in the US.

As a result, mosquito reduction is vitally important to human health and well-being. There are many varieties of mosquitoes, some of which carry more deadly diseases than others. Mosquito insecticide is often used on a wide-scale basis to combat mosquitoes and is generally very effective. If your property is prone to attracting and breeding a mosquito population, contact a professional pest control company to assess and manage the situation.

IPM Services tackles this problem comprehensively by preventing future breeding areas. We inspect your property and use methods that prevent mosquito larvae from maturing into the adult phase, a process called larvidiciding.

We also mist foliage, evaluate property for standing water, and use other techniques that allow us to minimize the potential for future mosquito breeding areas.
