The Benefits Of Signing Up For Mosquito Service Early
March 15, 2017
Mosquitoes are getting a lot of attention lately. While these insects have always been dangerous, the recent Zika threat has led many to start looking into mosquito abatement to protect their homes, their families, and their businesses from mosquito-borne viruses. If you're considering mosquito reduction service for your Macon, Georgia home or business, it is best to start sooner than later. Here's why.
This is the primary benefit to getting mosquito service right now. Temperatures are just starting to climb back up into the 70s to stay. Soon, we will see many days where the temperatures will be in the 80s and above. This is when mosquitoes are going to start producing. Before this happens, it is vital to make sure your property is ready to stop this reproduction from occurring.
Does mosquito abatement really work?
Yes. It is the first line of defense the U.S. government uses to stop the spread of infectious mosquito-borne diseases.
Why does abatement work?
There are two mosquitoes that are primary vectors for Zika, West Nile, and other harmful mosquito-borne diseases in the United States; they are the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Both of these mosquito species have a limited flight range, and will only travel about 100 to 500 meters from their point of origin. When a yard has routine mosquito abatement, it creates a dead space and breaks the vector for the spreading disease.
The more areas that mosquito abatement is applied to now, before mosquito season kicks into full gear, the safer our state, our communities, and our families will be.
Mosquito abatement kills eggs before they can hatch, and destroys mosquitoes in the places they hide from the midday sun. But it also addresses conditions that allow mosquitoes to breed, such as areas of standing water and moisture. When mosquitoes are prevented from breeding, we're all safer.
So, before those mosquitoes have a chance to hatch and breed, let Allgood Pest Solutions implement a comprehensive mosquito management program for your property, that reduces breeding and resting sites, adult mosquito populations, and eggs that are waiting to hatch.

In the battle against mosquito-borne diseases like Zika and West Nile, it is best to get mosquito reduction services started early.
