Make The Most Of A Mosquito Control Service
Mosquitos are annoying, but they can also cause a potential health threat to you and your family. Not only are their bites extremely itchy and ugly, but mosquitos can also carry some very harmful diseases, like West Nile Virus, Zika, Chikungunya, and more. Keeping mosquitos away from your home or business with Glen Burnie mosquito control is the best way to avoid contracting these illnesses from a random bite.
Adult mosquitos only live for a few weeks, but that’s long enough to cause trouble. The female is the only one who drinks the blood of humans, as she requires it to produce her eggs. After her feast, she’ll lay between 50 and 400 eggs in a pool of standing water. Within a week, the eggs hatch into larvae and begin to mature. A female can lay almost 3,000 eggs within a few weeks, making the mosquito population difficult to control.
Get The Mosquitos Under Control
A Glenn Burnie mosquito control service can ensure that the pesky populations around your home or business are kept under control. A qualified technician will inspect the area to reduce mosquito breeding sites. An applied treatment will kill any mosquitos that are present, but will also work to regulate growth of new ones. You’ll then have a zone of protection around your home or business that works to keep them away for weeks.
