Mosquito Control in Fresno
Mosquitoes can carry many diseases such as West Nile fever, Dengue fever and Zika virus, making mosquito control in Fresno a critical move for homeowners. At Dustin Pest Control, our approach is to destroy the life cycle of these mosquitoes using a barrier treatment. With confirmed sightings of the non-native Aedes aegypti, which is capable of transmitting Zika, it is even more imperative than ever that homeowners protect themselves.
The first line of defense when it comes to mosquito control is to eliminate any standing water left in ports, as well as checking lawn drains, leaking sprinklers, rain gutters, barbecue pits and more. The next step is to call our technicians at Dustin Pest Control for barrier treatment mosquito control. Let one of our professionals at Dustin Pest Control make an inspection of your yard to help identify critical areas that can promote mosquito breeding and harborage. After these sites are identified, a barrier treatment to help control these disease carrying mosquitos will be performed on your property.
Mosquito Life CycleUnderstanding the mosquito life cycle can help you determine the best course of treatment for your home. Our barrier treatment is applied along the perimeter of your yard, not only killing mosquitoes on-contact, but also repelling them for weeks to come.
- Egg – After feeding, female mosquitoes lay eggs on or near water, soil or at the base of plants.
- Larva – Once the mosquito egg hatches in water, a larva or “wiggler” emerges.
- Pupa – This is the third and final stage of the mosquito’s life cycle that is water-based.
- Adult – After two days to a week as a pupa or “tumbler”, the mosquito emerges out of the water as an adult.
