Mosquito animated gifThe grass is green, the flowers are blooming, and the pollen is everywhere…spring is here, and so are the mosquitoes!  Mosquitoes are an especially aggravating pest because their bites can leave you itching and scratching for days!  Not to mention the fact that Mosquitoes can carry and spread disease and sickness.  Learning about this pesky bug can help you control and reduce the mosquito population on your property.

Ponds, marshes, pools, drainage ditches and any standing water are quite literally the breeding ground for mosquitoes.  Keeping your gutters clean and free flowing, and emptying any container holding water will limit mosquito activity.  Some mosquito eggs will be dormant until they come in contact with water (sometimes up to 3-5 years!).

Recent studies have shown that bug zappers are not an effective treatment for mosquitoes.  Many bug sprays do not offer much protection against mosquitoes.  For these reasons, many people rely on professionals for effective mosquito control.  At Stomp we offer a comprehensive Mosquito Reduction Program, at a very affordable price.
