Lawn Care Tip: Mosquito Control

by on January 11, 2013

Hands down, mosquitoes are probably one of the most annoying pests around. They can turn a perfectly enjoyable evening into an itchy, aggravating event that will deter you from enjoying a warm summer night again.

Besides being downright irritating (both mentally and physically), they also could pose a serious health risk. Lawn care experts who work to eradicate mosquito populations say mosquitoes can carry several deadly illnesses and the most vulnerable victims are children and the elderly. Most recently they have been blamed for transmitting the West Nile Virus and causing thousands of deaths. Additionally, they also carry malaria, elephantiasis, yellow fever, encephalitis and dengue.

Many St. Louis lawn care companies offer mosquito control so you can rest easy while you enjoy watching the stars with your family or friends. If you have a big event coming up, you can also have the area sprayed so mosquitoes will not disturb your guests.

If you live on or near water, you should really be mindful of the potential harm mosquitoes can cause. Lawn care specialists say water is a must in order for mosquitoes to breed, so if you have standing water around your home that you can get rid of (ex: pooling water on your St. Louis lawn that could be graded), it might be a good idea to do so and remove the threat.

If mosquitoes are becoming a serious problem, you should call your local St. Louis lawn care authority right away. Many people think a mosquito bite is harmless, but you don’t want to take the risk of being bitten by one that is infected with a deadly disease.
