Mosquito Control In Lunenburg, Leominster, Concord, & Nearby MA Areas
Reduce mosquitoes at your residential or commercial property with our mosquito control program applied in five treatments.
Across the globe, there are close to 3000 different types of mosquitoes. In Massachusetts, we have just over 50 types to watch out for. Aside from painful, itchy bites, mosquitoes can also cause other problems such as West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis.
Mosquitoes are most active during the warmer months of May-September, and that’s when we apply our mosquito control treatments for properties located throughout Worcester and Middlesex Counties, including the areas of Lunenburg, Leominster, Concord, Westford, and more.
Mosquitoes are attracted to damp, shady places and will often spend the daytime there. They like to lay their eggs in water, usually stagnant water like a birdbath or wading pool. When the eggs hatch, the mosquito flies away to the nearest plant or shady area.
By going through your yard and eliminating areas where stagnant water rests or can collect, you can help to reduce the appearance of mosquitoes in your yard. Empty out any containers or throw them away. Keep gutters cleaned out so that water cannot accumulate there.
Remember, mosquitoes can be active at any time of the day, but most tend to be active right around dusk all the way up to dawn. When you’re looking for stagnant water areas, try to do it during the day when they won’t be as active. Always wear bug spray and wear long-sleeved shirts and pants when you are outdoors to prevent mosquitoes from getting to your skin.
Not all mosquitoes carry these germs, but it’s important to be aware of the potential dangers that a mosquito can pose to you, your family, friends, or customers.
Mosquito bites can transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Many who are infected with West Nile will never see symptoms arise. Eastern Equine Encephalitis is rare but presents very serious symptoms.
When Eastern Equine Encephalitis progresses, it can often put patients into a coma. Around half of those infected end up dying, and those who survive may see permanent disability.
