How To Protect Your Outdoor Event From Mosquitoes

How To Protect Your Outdoor Event From Mosquitoes

While things aren’t perfect yet, the country is making progress with the COVID pandemic. As more and more things reopen, people are making up for lost time and reconnecting with loved ones. We’re making up for things we missed like graduation parties, weddings, family reunions, and cookouts. Unfortunately, mosquitoes love these events as much as we do – it’s a feast for them! You don’t have to be locked in for the full season – DFW Mosquito Control can protect your property for the duration of that special event! Many homeowners don’t realize that they can keep these annoying critters away with a backyard mosquito control application.

Why You Should Get Mosquito Spray For Eventskiddie pool with water

Mosquitoes Are Attracted To Water

One of the best ways to cool off in the summer is with a pool, and what better way to make the most of it than a pool party! Unfortunately, wherever there is water, there is the risk of mosquitoes. Female mosquitoes need a source of still water to lay their eggs. Not unlike tadpoles, mosquitoes begin their lives in water. And it doesn’t have to be a vast body of water. Momma mosquitoes can make do with an area the size of a bottle cap! With that in mind, you can imagine how easy a little excess moisture can lead to swarms of biting mosquitoes. Our control application will target all such problem areas.

Mosquitoes Follow Carbon Dioxide

One of the things that alert mosquitoes to our presence is carbon dioxide, which we produce when we exhale. When you’ve got a large group of people in your backyard, there’s far more carbon dioxide floating around, and it will lead mosquitoes right to you. The mosquitoes in your yard will be long dead by the time your guests arrive! Rather than suffocate your guests with foul-smelling bug spray or sooty citronella torches, you can beat mosquitoes to the punch with an outdoor mosquito control application.

Our Treatment Dries Quickly

When planning an event, you need lots of time to prepare. You might be thinking: I can’t afford to lose access to my yard the day before my event! With our treatment, you won’t have to. Our product is safe after just 10 minutes – yes, really! You won’t have to wait hours and hours before you can resume your preparations. And it’s perfectly safe for children and pets once the ten minutes are up.

Mosquitoes Carry Diseases

Mosquitoes can impact the health of you and your pets. Here are just a few of the diseases that mosquitoes can carry:

  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis – This can lead to serious illness that causes inflammation of the brain.
  • West Nile – usually clears up but can lead to severe complications, including death. Most people do not show symptoms, so you could be sick and not realize
  • Heartworm – This mosquito-borne disease is one of the worst things your dog or cat can contract. The worms live in the heart, lungs, and other organs of your animal, and it’s fatal if not treated quickly.
