Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; they are a health hazard. Carrying diseases like Malaria, Yellow Fever, and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are the world's deadliest animal, killing over 500,000 people each year. That's why mosquito control is a serious matter, especially in Maryland, where these pests can thrive. Bug Squashers of Maryland are your go-to experts in safe and effective mosquito eradication for residential and commercial properties.
Before delving into control methods, we must understand what we're up against. Mosquitoes are a type of fly with about 3,500 species. These insects undergo a four-stage life cycle: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. It's worth noting that only female mosquitoes bite, using their saliva to transmit various diseases, making them a critical target for pest control.
With years of industry experience, Bug Squashers employs top-notch products like Oneguard to ensure your mosquito problem is solved for good. We are committed to providing an environment that's not just mosquito-free but safe for humans and pets.
We use a multi-pronged approach for treating mosquitoes. First, we apply liquid residual insecticides to control adult mosquitoes, often found resting in vegetation during the daytime. Next, insect growth regulators prevent larvae from advancing to the pupa stage, disrupting the mosquito life cycle.
Here's a tip for homeowners: Trimming and eliminating the overgrowth of weeds can make your property less hospitable to mosquitoes. Spraying the foliage of bushes and shrubs, lower limbs of shade trees, tall grass, and shaded areas with a residual insecticide can further control adult mosquitoes.
The key to long-term mosquito control is eliminating their breeding grounds. Mosquitoes can breed in any standing water source, including:
By managing these areas, you can significantly reduce the mosquito population on your property.
We reclaim our backyards, patios, and other outdoor spaces from these flying menaces. Bug Squashers of Maryland is your reliable partner for comprehensive mosquito control solutions in Maryland.
