Mosquito Prevention and Elimination
While termites cause the most structural and monetary damage of all the pests, today's mosquitoes present the biggest danger to your health. The West Nile virus and the Zika virus both continue to be a threat, with cases of the latter still reported in Kansas in 2017. Mosquitoes are infamous for the bite that adult females inflict in order to feed on blood to help generate their eggs. In addition to stagnant water and shaded areas, here's what else attracts mosquitoes.
- Larger people make for bigger targets for mosquitoes, and they produce more carbon dioxide.
- People who are active or fidgety also attract more mosquitoes because they produce more carbon dioxide.
- Dark-colored clothing attracts mosquitoes more than light-colored clothing.
- Research suggests movement increases mosquito bites by 50 percent.
- One study even concludes that a full moon increases mosquito activity by 500 percent.
Rodents are always looking for warmth and food, so they often find their way indoors. Even large rodents can fit through small holes in your house, but they can be difficult to remove. Rodents can wreak havoc on your yard, too, by eating plant material and ruining the soil. The technicians at Advantage Pest Control have years of expertise with rodents. After removing the animals, they also provide clients with a maintenance program to prevent the infestation from returning.
