More rain = More mosquitoes

31 08 2010

It is interesting to note that even the local newspaper is writing stories now about the rise in mosquito populations this year in comparison to last year. (Click here for the article) They even quote a mosquito control manager as saying that it is up to 30% worse this year!

Heavy rains this year has been cited as the main reason for the increase in mosquito populations, as standing water is the easiest place for mosquitoes to breed.  Generally 4-7 days after a rain, mosquitoes are ready to hatch and attack  your yard.

On another note, in case you read the newspaper article including the comments at the bottom, you might have noticed that one reader did not approve of Mosquito Squad’s use of garlic to repel mosquitoes.  This reader says that they would like to have mosquitoes killed and not just repelled into their neighbor’s yards.  This does seem like a very understandable desire, but ultimately this reader just doesn’t know enough about our spray.

Our mosquito barrier garlic spray DOES kill the mosquitoes that are in a person’s yard during the spray by suffocating them.  The only mosquitoes that are repelled are the mosquitoes that are currently in the neighbor’s yards.  Our barrier spray causes the NEIGHBOR’S mosquitoes to not want to enter into a customer’s yard, so the neighbor is simply left with the same problem that he had before we ever sprayed – his own mosquito population.  Our spray just keeps the neighbor’s mosquitoes from entering the newly mosquito free yard of our customer.
