Mosquito Prevention Starts Now
Last year, the State of Illinois was ranked 6th among states with the most mosquito-related illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. In June alone, Rockford received over 14-inches of rain, creating the perfect storm for mosquito breeding.
In Illinois, 17 counties reported West Nile Virus activity in people, birds or mosquitoes. A mosquito bite can transmit heart disease to pets, as well.
Granted, those pesky little creatures won’t rear their heads till the temps reach near 80-degrees. With that said, our staff can provide an evaluation of your property, whether residential or commercial and create a plan to deter this issue NOW, long before it becomes one. Each program is unique, depending on the property and location. Once a plan is in place, we will take care of the rest, with regularly scheduled visits throughout the summer.
Your outdoor living space was designed to be enjoyed. Let our skilled, courteous staff customize a plan to prevent mosquitoes from spoiling your summer activities, so that you can focus your attention elsewhere.
A Few Tips on Reducing Mosquito Populations:
Change the water in birdbaths at least once a week.
Refresh your pet’s water bowl, daily.
Store boats covered or upside down.
Eliminate ALL standing water on your property: tires, buckets, rain barrels, trash containers, etc.
