Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
Treating adult mosquitoes is just one part of an effective mosquito treatment program. If you really want to stop mosquitoes, you need to address where they breed. As part of our mosquito control treatments, we will look for potential breeding sites and apply larvicide as necessary. This will sit in the water and the mosquito larvae will eat the larvicide and stop developing.
