Mosquito Control Herndon
Herndon began as a dairy community and an escape from the city during the summer, but has become a popular tourist destination due to it’s historic district and the Herndon Depot Museum that sits along the hike and bike trail that used to be the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad. The community hosts a number of events including the Herndon Festival and the annual NatureFest Celebration. With a population of just 24,5544, it’s family friendly with good schools and a number of parks. Winters are cool and usually mild while the summer days can be hot and humid, and like most communities in Virginia, Herndon has it’s share of mosquitoes that make backyard activities unbearable in the warmer months due to all the mosquito bites, and when you factor in that mosquitoes have already been responsible for West Nile cases in Fairfax county, then it’s important to prevent them from harming your family and pets. Fortunately there is a solution to getting mosquitoes under control, and the professionals at Mosquito Tek know how to not only eliminate the adult mosquitoes, but they know how to prevent them from coming back.
Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They BreedLike most homeowners who have attempted to get rid of mosquitoes using the DIY methods, you’ve tried it and they keep coming back. Mosquito Tek knows how to not only eliminate the adults, but they know how to completely exterminate mosquitoes from returning by using a two-prong approach to mosquito control. This involves not only spraying for adult mosquitoes that are actively swarming on your property, but also addressing any areas that may be potential breeding ground. The mosquito technicians will inspect your yard for any standing water and empty any containers that contain water, and will then apply larvicides to areas where natural standing water exists. The larvicide will stop mosquito larvae from developing into adults without negatively impacting other aquatic insects, nor will it harm the environment or local wildlife.
Environmentally Friendly Organic Treatment OptionsMosquito Tek offer two mosquito control treatment options, and depending on the severity of the infestation or your concerns for having the option for a green solution will determine which option is best your your individual situation. Mosquito Tek uses the all natural Essentria line of products for our organic mosquito control treatments, which will last up to two weeks and is NOP compliant. For heavy mosquito infestations or problematic conditions where mosquitoes are tough to contain, Mosquito Tek recommends technicians use the Talstar line of insecticides for conventional spray treatments since it has one of the strongest mosquito knockdowns on the market, and will last up to three weeks.
Tick Control Treatment OptionsAs an added bonus for every mosquito control treatment plan, customers can opt for a low cost tick control treatment upgrade as an add-on to the mosquito treatment, or they can select the tick control treatment as a standalone service if they’re not purchasing mosquito control. Ticks carry a number of serious illnesses including Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease, whereas fleas can also spread illnesses and make your pets miserable. The tick control treatments can help keep you and your family safe from the complications that ticks can bring.
