Mosquitoes Can Be Some of Nature’s Most Irritating and Dangerous Creatures
Summers in Toronto can be the best of times, but when mosquitoes enter the picture, they can quickly become the worst of times. Along with warmer temperatures, leisurely days, backyard cookouts, and family vacations come a host of insects, from bees to ants to cockroaches. But among insects, perhaps none is more annoying than the mosquito. Mosquitoes pose a number of problems, including:
- Health risks – Mosquitoes are known to carry a variety of diseases, including the sometimes fatal West Nile virus. Mosquitoes cause 1-2 million deaths each year.
- Discomfort – Everyone who has tried to enjoy a peaceful summer evening knows the annoyance that mosquitoes can cause, leaving itchy spots and ugly red welts on arms and legs.
- Financial Problems – When there is a particularly bad mosquito problem, it can lower property values, discourage tourism, and hurt farming.
Mosquitoes can also grow in numbers very quickly, with the average female mosquito laying between 100 and 200 eggs in her lifetime. Over just a few weeks, two mosquitoes can breed thousands more insects.
Greenleaf Pest Control Eradicates Mosquitoes in Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughn, and the Surrounding Areas Using Environmentally Friendly Techniques
At Greenleaf Pest Control, we are committed to earth-friendly pest control methods, and we try to avoid using pesticides and other chemicals whenever possible. When you call us, we will usually begin with a larval and adult survey to find out what species of mosquitoes you are dealing with, what the size of the population is, and what the best control methods would be.
We place a great deal of emphasis on eliminating the source of the problem. Because mosquitoes breed in standing water, we attempt to eliminate all stagnant water sources, including tires, children’s wading pools, buckets, and clogged gutters. We also attempt to drain puddles and swampy areas. There are a number of other methods to control mosquito populations that our Mosquito/Biting Fly licensed Technicians may use, including mosquito larvicide, pond aeration
, mosquito traps, and mosquito misting systems.
