You should be able to spend time in your Collegeville yard without worrying about mosquito bites. Unfortunately, there are many locals in our area that cannot do this. We believe this is because they do not have the tools to deal with these pests. One method that works great to stop mosquitoes is mosquito misting.

Here is what you need to know about mosquito misting and why it is a superior option for pest control in Collegeville. Call Terra Pest Management Specialists if you want to learn more about this service directly from our team. We will answer any questions you have and walk you through how to get professional mosquito control for your property. 

A Brief History Of Mosquito Control

There are many articles written about the history of mosquito control. To shorten things for you today, here are some of the main talking points and where we are today:

  • 1900-1940: During this time, many mechanical methods were used to control mosquitoes on properties. These methods include ditching and draining and the limited application of early larvicides into areas where mosquitoes breed. These methods were mildly effective.
  • 1940-1970: This era saw the most successful mosquito control to date with the invention of DDT and other pesticides. Unfortunately and fortunately, DDT was later deemed harmful to human health and banned. It was quickly replaced with many other less effective but much friendlier options.
  • 1970-Present: Loads of advances occurred in the mosquito control field during this time leading up to what we have today. Although we still use larvae-sides and other older methods that have been developed for modern use, we also have access to amazing solutions like misting systems. 

We will talk more about these systems in a bit and tell you how Terra Pest Management Specialists can control your mosquito population.

Mosquitoes Are Considered A Public Health Risk

There are many different types of mosquitoes; all are health risks in their own way. Although not as dangerous as they are in third-world countries, these pests can spread harmful diseases here in the United States. The only way to avoid contracting a harmful sickness like malaria, West Nile virus, or dengue fever is to avoid mosquito bites.  

How The Mosquito Misting Process Works

Mosquito misting is by far the most convenient way to deal with mosquitoes on your property. This is because it uses a systematic treatment process. Misters are installed around the perimeter of a property and equipped with a spray pesticide that directly targets mosquitoes. There are two ways to use this system. The first is to set sprayers to go off before noon and after 6 pm every day. The other is to manually activate the system during these times on days you want to spend outside. 

At Terra Pest Management Specialists, we will walk you through all of the details of this system after installation.
