Mosquito Control Hillsborough
Hillsborough, North Carolina is a part of the greater Triangle. Located west of Durham, Hillsborough is a small community with a population of 6,388 (CityData.com). Hillsborough has four art galleries along with a historic downtown district which have several sites open to tours. Hillsborough also hosts a concert series each year. The city is part of the Orange County school system and is a growing community with a lot of new developments but with much yet developed land around the community. Many are attracted to all that this community has to offer. Hillsborough has mild winters and hot summer days. That along with the proximity of the Eno River makes the area a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. If mosquitoes are preventing time outside in your yard, turn to the experts at Mosquito Tek. We have been helping residents of the Triangle eliminate their mosquito problem since 2011. We can give you the mosquito-free yard you have always wanted.
Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They BreedMosquito Tek understands that to truly address the mosquito problem, more than one elimination approach must be used. A comprehensive mosquito program will not only kill adult mosquitoes but will also eliminate breeding areas. This is why the Mosquito Tek technique uses a highly effective larvicide in potential breeding sites.
Conventional and Organic Mosquito Treatments
At Mosquito Tek, we understand how important it is to have a choice when it comes to the different products that are available. We use Talstar for our conventional mosquito control treatment option, which has a strong mosquito knockdown and is effective for up to three weeks. For those that want only the most environmentally friendly option available, we use Essentria for our organic mosquito control treatment. This option is NOP compliant and is effective for up to two weeks.
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and ticks can pose an additional risk to your family and pets. Fleas can cause your pets to develop tapeworms, cat scratch fever, and anemia, and ticks can make your family members sick with Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Mosquito Tek understands just how important it is to protect your family, which is why we give you the option to add a flea and tick control treatment with each mosquito treatment. For those that are less concerned with mosquitoes than they are with eliminating ticks and fleas, we offer tick and flea spraying as a standalone service.
