Football season is finally here and that means it is time for backyard tailgating parties. If you don’t want mosquitoes, flies or ants putting a damper on your party call the experts! Squashing flies trying to get rid of misquotes or looking at the ground to make sure ants don’t bite your feet can let you miss important plays during a football game. The experts at Terminix can help make sure that those pesky little insects do not ruin your backyard football party.
Terminix can successfully control flies. Our experts can customize a fly control program to meet your needs. Our services include giving you recommendations on how to minimize fly invasions and providing exterior treatment as needed. Keep in mind that flies that are attracted to your backyard are more likely to move inside. Things you can do to control the presence of flies around your home include keeping outside dumpster and trash areas clean. Flies are attracted to ultraviolet light. If you have a fly invasion in your home or business, we can help by using our insect light traps (ILTs). They use special UV bulbs that are highly effective in attracting flies. Flies attracted to an ILT are then captured by a glue trap or catch tray.
Ants are highly social creatures — if you see one ant, that likely means you have more nearby, and killing some ants won’t take care of the problem. Effective ant control often requires finding and treating the colony. To get rid of ants, it is important to identify the ant species before attempting ant control. Some ant species, like Pharaoh ants, can be controlled using baits, while others cannot. To get rid of ants successfully, it is usually necessary to follow them back to their colony and treat the colony directly. Terminix pest control professionals have the experience to correctly identify your ants and kill them.
Terminix can provide a one-time treatment or a customized on-going treatment solution to help reduce the mosquito population around your home or business. Whether you are planning an outdoor event or trying to control the mosquitoes in your yard, we can provide an effective pest control solution. The In2Care® Mosquito Trap uses water with an odor to attract egg-laying Aedes mosquitoes. Once inside the plastic container, they come in contact with a biological control agent that eliminates them. The system uses a fungus that kills the mosquito several days after infection and can prevent disease transmission. It exploits the fact that Aedes like to divide their eggs over multiple sites; by letting them fly out of the trap while carrying larvicide on their legs. They transport the larvicide and contaminate several breeding sites around the trap. This way, you can get rid of larvae in small and hard to find spots. The In2Care Mosquito Trap is the first trap that uses a biological control agent to kill mosquitoes. The larvicide is US-EPA-approved and World Health Organization-recommended.
