You Are Throwing A Back Yard Party, But Have Mosquitos! Now What?

The summer is upon us. While the summer is wonderful because of the beautiful weather, high temperatures, it also means that pests will be out in abundance. Depending on where you live, you might be swarmed by mosquitoes every time you step outside your home. Because of this, it is important that you have an emergency pest control company to call when you need those pests gone as soon as possible. For example, let’s say you are planing a party in your back yard. However, hours before the event is scheduled to begin, a swarm of mosquitoes, or some other annoying insects, turn your yard into their playground. This is clearly a job for a pest control company, but how do you find one? Here is how to locate a pest control company you can depend on.

Ask your neighbors who they use

Since your neighbors live in your area, they are exposed to the same pest problems you are experiencing. Because of this, there is a good chance that they have hired pest control companies in the past. They will be able to steer you in the right direction. At the very least, they should be able to give you a name or two of local exterminators that you can call.

Pest control company websites

The websites of the pest control companies themselves should offer some vital information about how much experience each company has, the training their employees are required to have, the equipment and chemicals they use and the various infestations they are equipped to handle. You will need to schedule an appointment with each company to get an estimate. They will actually need to visit your home and see the problem for themselves before they can give you an accurate quote. Talk to many different companies, because the quotes they will give you will vary quite a bit.

Hire a small company

Large companies send more people to your house, so they generally cost more. A small company can do the exact same job, but they only send one man and charge you much less. However, make sure the exterminator is licensed and insured.

  1. We get a lot of mosquitos here. I actually never really though about pest control for them because there are so many, but it might be something to look at!

  2. My town is the ground zero for West Nile and EEE every summer, so these are really important tips for us.

  3. A pest control service would be the perfect solution, but there are some special sprays to use until the company decides to show up and do their job.

  4. I like the idea of hirng a small company instead of a large one. It makes more sense in the long run and you are likely to get more personalized service.

  5. NIce Idea thanks for sharing this stuff I must share this because it’s rainy season here so the mosquito is so active.

  6. We have lots of mosquitos also, but what really gets to me are the little gnats. On some days the air is thick with them. YUCK!
