Mosquito Control in Manchester

Mosquito Prevention in Merrimack, Rockingham, Hillsborough, Strafford & Belknap Counties

There’s nothing quite like relaxing in your yard when the weather gets warm. At least, until the incessant buzzing of mosquitoes fills your ears. However, mosquito aren’t just a nuisance that you have to put up with and swat away during barbeques and other outdoor activities — they often carry deadly diseases like West Nile. Moreover, mosquitoes breed quickly and can lay more than 100 eggs in pools of standing water that are less than the size of a bottle cap. These eggs hatch in as little as five days and grow into fully developed mosquitoes in two to three days. The result? Thousands of mosquitoes could be breeding in your yard in a matter of weeks.

Some homeowners opt for DIY mosquito control methods such as sprays and pesticides, but the chemicals in these products often do more harm than good. Permethrin, for instance, is a common chemical used for mosquito control and lice treatment. It’s also been classified as a carcinogen that causes toxic effects in children and some adults. Some of the other most popular mosquito control products on the market have also been shown to harm vegetation, pets, humans, and the local ecosystem.

At the end of the day, it’s just a matter of time before you have to invest in even more harmful chemicals to combat the endless waves of mosquitoes — unless you call Anchor Pest Services at (603) 317-4700.

How to Get Rid of Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are not only annoying with their incessant buzzing but can also pose health risks by transmitting diseases like malaria, dengue, and Zika virus. Getting rid of them requires a combination of preventive measures and targeted interventions. Here are some effective strategies:

Remove Standing Water:

  • Eliminate any sources of standing water around your home.
  • Regularly empty and clean containers that collect water.

Use Mosquito Repellents:

  • Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
  • Use indoor repellents like coils or candles.

Install Screens:

  • Install window and door screens.
  • Check screens regularly for holes and repair them promptly.

Maintain Your Yard:

  • Keep grass and shrubs trimmed.
  • Remove debris that can collect water.
  • Plant mosquito-repelling plants like citronella and lavender.

Use Mosquito Traps:

  • Set up mosquito traps in your yard.
  • Choose from CO2 traps, UV light traps, or electric zappers.

Utilize Natural Remedies:

  • Burn citronella candles or torches outdoors.
  • Place containers of crushed garlic or cloves around your patio or garden.

Consider Professional Help:

  • Hire a professional pest control service if infestations persist.
  • Experts can assess your property and implement targeted treatments.

By incorporating these strategies, you can significantly reduce the nuisance and health risks associated with mosquitoes.
