Mosquito Control and Treatment
Mosquitoes can be a nuisance, especially from March through October in the Lowcountry, buzzing around your head, landing on exposed parts of your body and covering your arms and legs with uncomfortable and unsightly bites. The red bumps on your skin might hurt initially, followed by an annoying itch that could last for a few days or even an entire week. Or, even worse, a mosquito might infect you with diseases ranging from West Nile virus to Eastern equine encephalitis.
You can reduce the chance that you will be bothered or bitten by mosquitoes by spraying insect repellent all over your body whenever you venture outside, or you can simply hunker down inside your house and dream about, rather than enjoy, the beautiful Lowcountry weather.
A better option would be to call Carolina Exterminating. We’ll come by once or month – or more often, if necessary – to treat your yard and house with products that will eliminate up to 90 percent of those pesky predators. If the problem persists, we’ll be back, at no extra charge, to keep mosquitoes from spoiling your spring, summer and fall fun. And, if you are planning a party in your backyard paradise, we’ll be glad to come by the day before to make sure annoying, uninvited guests don’t fly in for your get-together.
We know how valuable your time is. You won’t have to be home when one of our experienced technicians shows up to treat your yard. He’ll leave a note to let you know exactly what he accomplished during his visit.
At Carolina Exterminating, our service provides a safe and effective way to virtually rid your property of mosquitoes. However, we do more than simply spray for flying pests. We’ll inspect your home and yard and give you tips on how to keep mosquitoes from taking up residence in or near your residence. For example:
- Clean your gutters and downspouts regularly. They are an excellent breeding ground for mosquitoes.
- Keep vegetation trimmed back, especially around the edges of pools and ponds.
- Eliminate standing water in your yard - Cover trash containers to keep rainwater from accumulating. Empty and turn over containers that hold water, including cans, jars, drums, bottles, flowerpots, buckets, wheelbarrows and tarps used to cover grills or swimming pools.
- Change the water in birdbaths at least once a week.
- Repair leaky pipes and faucets.
