Mosquito Control

Mosquito Control & Extermination

Mosquito control is very important because of the deadly diseases mosquitos can pass onto humans such as the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Chikungunya disease, and St. Louis encephalitis. The integrated pest management (IPM) method along with proper treatment is the most effective way of lowering the risk of mosquitos. As a result, you will gain 100 percent peace of mind knowing that you and your family are protected from menacing mosquitos.

Quality Pest Control’s Mosquito Barrier treatment will let you take your yard back! A QPC mosquito control technician will treat the area surrounding your home and yard. The result is a proven, trusted barrier of mosquito protection that kills mosquitoes for a period of at least 21 days and as much as 30 days. For severe infestations treatment can be done every 14 days during peak periods of mosquito season.

QPC mosquito control is also available for events such as weddings, picnics, concerts, family reunions and other outdoor special events. Our special event spray is applied prior to the event to ensure optimum protection for the big day. The protection lasts for days, so this larger scale mosquito protection is an excellent choice for extended outings and gatherings.

We have multiple plans to fit your needs and your budget.

Mosquito Facts

Mosquitoes are insects belonging to the order Diptera, the True Flies. Like all True Flies, they have two wings, but unlike other flies, mosquito wings have scales. Female mosquitoes’ mouthparts form a long piercing-sucking proboscis. Males differ from females by having feathery antennae and mouthparts not suitable for piercing skin. A mosquito’s principal food is nectar or similar sugar source.

Homeowners can take the following steps to prevent mosquito breeding on their own property:

  • Destroy or dispose of tin cans, old tires, buckets, unused plastic swimming pools or other containers that collect and hold water. Do not allow water to accumulate in the saucers of flowerpots, cemetery urns or in pet dishes for more than 2 days.
  • Clean debris from rain gutters and remove any standing water under or around structures, or on flat roofs. Check around faucets and air conditioner units and repair leaks or eliminate puddles that remain for several days.
  • Change the water in birdbaths and wading pools at least once a week and stock ornamental pools with top feeding predacious minnows. Known as mosquito fish, these minnows are about 1 – 1-1/2 inches in length and can be purchased or native fish can be seined from streams and creeks locally.
  • Fill or drain puddles, ditches and swampy areas, and either remove, drain or fill tree holes and stumps with mortar. These areas may be treated with Bti or methoprene products also.
  • Eliminate seepage from cisterns, cesspools, and septic tanks.
  • Eliminate standing water around animal watering troughs. Flush livestock water troughs twice a week.
  • Check for trapped water in plastic or canvas tarps used to cover boats, pools, etc. Arrange the tarp to drain the wate
  • Check around construction sites or do-it-yourself improvements to ensure that proper backfilling and grading prevent drainage problems.
  • Irrigate lawns and gardens carefully to prevent water from standing for several days.
