The Best Mosquito Control Service for Your Fort Worth Area Yard
- January 10, 2022
Spring is approaching fast in Fort Worth Texas, and most of us can’t wait to get back outdoors and enjoy the weather. If there’s one thing Texans know how to do, it is throwing a good old-fashioned backyard cookout. No matter what kind of event you are planning this year, there’s always going to be uninvited guests. And that includes those irritating mosquitoes. These annoying insects can quickly bring an end to any outdoor activities you had planned.
Now that it’s January, you might think that the threat of mosquitoes is over, but here in Texas, we have one of the longest mosquito seasons in the country. As long as temperatures stay above 50 degrees, mosquitoes will still be active. Here in Fort Worth, our forests, mountains, and lakes make perfect homes for swarms of mosquitoes. This increases your chances of catching mosquito-borne diseases such as Zika, West Nile, EEE, and Dengue Fever.
An important step to fighting and controlling mosquitos is understanding how they live and breed. Female mosquitos are the only ones who bite and that’s because they need the protein in your blood to produce eggs.
A female mosquito also requires standing water to deposit her eggs and this is where effective mosquito control comes into play. After it rains, everyday objects can become breeding zones for mosquitos, such as:
We always recommend that our clients take a proactive step in mosquito management. That means going around your Fort Worth yard after it rains and reducing the amount of standing water in your yard. Remember, anything that can hold water can breed mosquitoes.
Here at DFW Mosquito, we have many years of experience dealing with mosquitoes in the Fort Worth area. We know where they live and we know where they breed. Our technicians will assess your yard and identify high-risk areas where mosquitoes are likely to be breeding. After that, they will apply a spray that will kill up to 80% of the mosquitoes and larvae. We will then follow up with more applications every 21 days to reapply the treatment to ensure maximum protection. Areas that are usually targeted include:
When winter arrives, we will discontinue the service of our mosquito control program so you aren’t paying for what you don’t need.
Are you hosting a special event in your backyard like a wedding, graduation, or family reunion? Then you probably want everything to go perfectly. One of the ways to make sure your guests don’t leave early is to get rid of the mosquito problem. For this type of occasion, we provide expedited one-time application treatments within 48 hours to make sure your guests are not bothered by annoying mosquitos.
Once your first application has been applied by our technicians, it will be dry and safe to play on in minutes. You should immediately notice a dramatic difference in the number of mosquitoes in your yard. If you do continue to experience problems with mosquitoes after an application has been applied, call us and we will come back to re-apply at no cost to you!
In Fort Worth, we also have to live with fire ants. Fire ants are an invasive species from South America that have moved right in and made themselves at home. Their mounds can be unsightly and dull your mower blades. Their colonies can swell to hundreds of thousands of ants posing a risk to children and pets. If you notice fire ant activity in your yard, call the professionals at DFW immediately.
The most effective way to control mosquitoes is by hiring professional mosquito control experts at DFW Mosquito. With our mosquito control program, we can ensure up to 90% of all mosquitoes are eliminated. With follow-up visits, we can keep the barrier strong and effective all year.
