And you do not have to worry about your children or pets playing in the yard after treatment because of the safe, green mosquito control used in your yard.

Risks of mosquitoes

Most people view mosquitoes as annoying yard pests that come out in warm weather, leaving you and your family itchy and irritable because of the incessant biting. But mosquitoes can carry diseases and bacteria that they can transfer to humans when they bite. Nasty diseases like:

  • Malaria
  • Zika
  • West Nile Virus

Mosquitoes that are infected incubate the bacteria until it multiplies inside of them. When a mosquito bites, it is their saliva that actually transfers the disease to the person. Keeping mosquitoes from buzzing around your yard is the best way to prevent you and your family from being bitten by an infected mosquito.

Eco-friendly mosquito control

Preventing mosquitoes from biting starts with keeping them out of your yard. By using a mosquito trap, like the In2Care®, the female mosquitoes fly inside a plastic bucket and  are contaminated with a larvicide and adulticide. Because this combo of biological insecticides doesn’t kill the mosquito right away, it allows it to spread the treatment to other mosquitoes, killing off more larvae and adult mosquitoes as possible. All the while, no chemicals are sprayed around your yard and the mosquitoes magically disappear.

Beneficial insects like bees and butterflies will not be affected by this eco-friendly pest control treatment for mosquitoes.

Preventing mosquitoes from coming back

Once your yard is mosquito free, you will not want to let those flying pests back into your yard. Having a local, trusted pest professional service the mosquito trap monthly will make sure it is always working well to ward off any mosquitoes.

But you could also plant mosquito repelling plants, like lavender, citronella, and marigolds, around your patio and yard. These plants will not only add color and pleasant scents to your yard, but it will also keep mosquitoes from waltzing back onto your property in between mosquito control treatments.
