Two years ago, the state of Illinois ranked 6th among states with the most mosquito-related illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. In Northern Illinois, mosquitoes do not typically emerge from hibernation until the end of April, when temps are consistent at 50 degrees.
We are already getting requests for mosquito control. There are several diseases that mosquitoes are known to carry, including the Zika virus and the West Nile vicus. Both diseases can have real implications on your health, as well as the health of your pets. It is important that you prepare now for the upcoming mosquito season and take precautionary measures to keep your family (and your pets) safe from mosquito bites.
Call us to today and have one of our trained staff members provide a free 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 in place, we will take care of the rest, with regularly scheduled visits throughout the summer.
Your outdoor living space was meant to be enjoyed. Let our skilled, courteous team customize a plan to prevent mosquitoes from spoiling your summer activities, so that you can focus your attention elsewhere. Once this shelter-in-place season comes to a close, take time to enjoy what spring has to offer, without the worry and hassle of these pesky little creatures.
