Mosquito Control Centreville
Centreville is a community just outside of Manassas that is rich in history with property and stories that date back to the colonial period. The major growth of the area began in the late 1990s, and now has a population of 68,024 with a bustling community that is good for families since the local school system is under Fairfax county schools. Centreville has a moderate climate with cool mild winters, but the summers can be hot and humid, which makes Centreville a perfect breeding ground for a variety of insects including mosquitoes. Unfortunately the area around Centreville has already seen cases of West Nile Virus in Fairfax county, so many homeowners are taking a proactive stance toward exterminating mosquitoes on their property. If you are avoiding spending time outside in your yard because of mosquitoes, contact Mosquito Tek for a free inspection and estimate for a mosquito control treatment that will eliminate any mosquitoes in your yard.
Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
In order to fully control mosquito populations, you need to do more than just kill the adult mosquitoes. Effective mosquito control is done by initially identifying potential breeding areas for mosquito larvae, and use a larvicide that will stop the larvae from developing into adults. The mosquito technician will perform an inspection of your property and empty any standing water, and in areas where it naturally gathers, the technician will apply the larvicide. Once the breeding areas have been addressed, a barrier spray will then be applied to locations where adult mosquitoes tend to swarm.
Conventional and Organic Mosquito Treatments
Mosquito Tek understands that choice is important, which is why they offer two treatment options. The conventional mosquito treatment is one of the most effective treatments on the market and it is safe for you, your family, and your pets, and will last for up to three weeks. The organic mosquito control treatment option is NOP compliant and is safe to use on your vegetable garden or around a restaurant or daycare center. This treatment works for two weeks.
Flea and Tick Control Options
Mosquito Tek wants you to receive the best value for your money, which is why they offer an affordable flea and tick control upgrade option with every mosquito control service. Fleas can be a nuisance and make your pets miserable, but ticks can pose a serious danger to you and your family since they carry serious diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. For customers that just want to get the flea and tick treatments done without the mosquito spraying service, there is the option of purchasing it as an individual treatment that will come with all the same guarantees as the mosquito services.
Mosquito Tek is dedicated to being the best pest control company in the Centreville area, which is why all pest control services come with Satisfaction Guarantees. Your peace of mind is important when it comes to knowing that the very best products are used with every treatment, and the level of professional service from Mosquito Tek is second to none. The Product Guarantee provides that if you see any mosquitoes around your home within the first two days of spraying, a technician will come out to spray again at no cost to you. The Service Guarantee provides you with a full refund if for any reason you are dissatisfied with the service you have received from Mosquito Tek.

We use products that are safe for your family and pets. You will need to stay inside during the treatment and then stay inside for a about an hour after the treatment is completed. This allows the treatment to dry out completely.
What types of diseases do mosquitoes carry?
Mosquitoes carry a number of diseases like West Nile virus and St. Louis encephalitis. Although Malaria and the Zika virus are not actively in the United States, the mosquitoes that carry them are, so it would not be difficult to have an outbreak of these diseases.

Mosquito Prevention Tips
There are steps that you can take to lower the chance of having mosquitoes in your yard:
- Change your lights: Mosquitoes like certain frequencies of light and switching to LED lights and yellow bug lights can make a difference.
- Keep your yard neat and trim: Mosquitoes like areas that stay damp. Trimming your bushes, clearing out debris and keeping your lawn short will allow your yard to dry out more quickly.
- Eliminate standing water: Taking the time to empty any standing water in your yard will get rid of any breeding areas in your yard.
- Use mosquito repellent: using mosquito repellent that contains DEET is one of the best ways to stop mosquitoes from biting you. It is important to wear this if you are going into an area with a lot of mosquitoes.
