Mosquito Control in Ventura
Experienced Mosquito Exterminators in Santa Barbara & Los Angeles Counties
Summertime is the time for barbecues, fireworks, and pool parties with friends and family. However, all it takes to ruin the perfect gathering is an attack by mosquitos, leaving you and your guests swatting away at the buzzing pests. Even if you can manage to get rid of them for a short time, the effects of painful, itchy bites can last for several days, and their scars can last even longer.
When your backyard has been overtaken by an infestation of these blood-sucking nuisances, it is extremely difficult to get rid of them on your own. These fast-breeding pests are rarely deterred by citronella candles or bug sprays. If you want mosquitos gone for good, our professionals at Cal Termite & Pest Control can apply our skills and experience to protect you and your family with superb mosquito control in Ventura.
Recognizing Mosquito Habitats
Although this buzzing, whiny mosquito is a nuisance no matter its sex, female mosquitoes are the ones that feed on the blood of animals and humans, seeking nutrients to reproduce hundreds of eggs. Always looking for places to lay their eggs for another generation of mosquitos, these pests especially prefer stagnant water sources. It is important to locate any of these sitting pools of water to eliminate mosquito populations. Mosquitos can lay their eggs in any source of water, no matter how small – even a bottle cap full of rainwater is enough.
Other places that commonly collect water include locations such as:
- Children’s toys
- Garden equipment
- Holes within trees or deep leaves
Powerful Extermination & Prevention Techniques
Our certified professionals at Cal Termite & Pest Control are ready to come in and first take a thorough overview of the property so that they can identify the areas where mosquitos are congregating and laying their eggs. Once they identify the source, our skilled experts will apply a powerful larvicide to kill both the mosquitos and their eggs. They will make sure that there are no other sources of stagnant water to prevent another infestation from occurring and let homeowners know about any potential hotspots so they can be vigilant about these areas of the property. Once you are armed with this information, your backyard barbecues can finally take place without a hitch.
Preserving Your Health & Safety
Most people know mosquitos are irritating pests that leave behind itchy bites you just can’t help scratching, but the problem is that these insects can cause even more devastating consequences. Six out of seven continents in the world carry mosquitos, and they have come to be known as the deadliest creatures on the planet. This is because mosquitos can carry terrible diseases from the various animals whose blood they suck, and then they pass those diseases on to humans. These diseases, such as malaria, West Nile virus, Zika virus, and yellow fever, can pose a significant risk to humans. To protect the health of you and your family, reach out for critical mosquito control in Ventura.
