What works and what doesn’t when it comes to mosquito pest control

Biting MosquitoThere are countless products on the market aimed at mosquito control, and while some of them can be effective in controlling a mosquito problem when used properly, the majority of them are highly ineffective.

Bug zappers are one device that people find satisfaction in having around because the constant sizzle of insects makes it seem as though the problem is being solved. The truth is that biting insects, such as mosquitoes, account for less than one percent of the bugs that are fried in these zappers, and the ones that are killed are usually the beneficial bugs that you want in your yard. Citronella candles and mosquito coils can be effective, but only if you are sitting right next to them and there is no wind. Mosquito coils have another downside as well; the chemicals that they are made with are now being studied for a link to respiratory problems. Insecticides can be very effective if used properly and with extreme caution because there is a great risk of environmental damage associated with them. If you aren’t positive what product you need to use for your particular problem, always hire an expert who offers mosquito control services that cause minimal damage to your yard.
