Mosquitoes are bloodsucking pests that do their damage quickly. You often don’t even realize you’ve been bitten until an itchy bump or two – or ten – shows up on your skin. Here in Florida, mosquito control is especially important because, not only are mosquitoes the leading pest nuisance for our state, but they also have the potential to spread deadly diseases like malaria (of which the US sees about 2000 cases each year), dengue, and Zika. With that in mind, it’s only natural that residents want to know the best mosquito control treatments for homes and businesses.

So, let’s talk about options for getting rid of mosquitoes on your property.

What are the Most Effective Mosquito Control Treatments?

If left untreated, mosquito infestations will worsen throughout the summer and fall until they die off due to cold weather. If you don’t want to wait that long, fortunately, there are a variety of ways you can protect your property.

  • Biological Control: Biological controls mean natural predators of mosquitoes. If you have a water feature, you should consider adding goldfish, koi, and red-eared slider turtles. Carnivorous plants also love mosquito meals. Finally, BTI (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) is a naturally occurring soil bacteria that is a highly effective mosquito larvicide.
  • Physical Barriers: Window/door screens and mosquito netting are useful physical barrier options for effective mosquito control. Oscillating fans and air curtains also work well because mosquitoes are surprisingly poor flyers, so when they meet wind resistance, they will often leave the area. 
  • Combined Approach: While one protective option is good, multiple is better. Combine biological control and physical barriers for a more complete solution.
  • Chemical Repellents: You can also use skin-safe chemical treatments, such as a bug repellent that contains 30-50% DEET or picaridin. Apply the spray directly to your skin and clothing for temporary relief.
  • Eliminate Standing Water: While this won’t get rid of mosquitoes that are already on the property, it’s a great way to prevent more mosquitoes from spawning there. That’s because mosquitoes require water to reproduce. Take it away and they’re forced to go elsewhere.
  • Professional Mosquito Control: While there are a number of things you can do yourself to lessen or reduce a mosquito infestation if the situation is really bad, nothing beats hiring a professional mosquito exterminator.

DIY Mosquito Control vs. Professional Mosquito Control

At Forest Pest Control we understand there are many reasons why a DIY approach may be appealing. DIY can be a lower cost upfront, can be applied immediately, does provide some measure of success, and is therefore quite convenient. 

On the other hand, professional mosquito exterminators have the knowledge and experience to assess your property comprehensively. They can identify breeding areas and implement targeted solutions, customize their approach to your specific needs, and reduce health risks by using professional-grade insecticides.

To put it simply: sometimes at the height of mosquito season, professional mosquito control is the only option that will work.
