Mosquitoes are not only annoying, but they carry serious health risks. They reproduce quickly, and in many types of environments. Brock Pest Control can control your mosquitoes to make sure your family stays healthy, and gets to enjoy the outdoors comfortably. We have a specialized mosquito program that dramatically reduces the presence of mosquitoes at your home. We treat the grounds, flower beds, gutters and standing water. Let us make your backyard enjoyable again with our mosquito pest control program.
Common Mosquito Misconceptions
MYTH: Bug zappers are effective against mosquitoes.
REALITY: Bug zappers do not control mosquitoes and can reduce the populations of beneficial insects.
MYTH: It is a common myth that electronic repellers keep mosquitoes away.
REALITY: In reality, electronic mosquito repellers are ineffective or do nothing; save your money.
MYTH: Residential vegetation can produce mosquitoes.
REALITY: They may be resting in the vegetation, but standing water is required to “produce” mosquitoes.
MYTH: Some mosquitoes can be 2 inches long.
REALITY: They don’t get that big, it was probably a crane fly.
MYTH: Bats, owls, and other birds can control mosquitoes.
REALITY: Although they may include mosquitoes in their diet, they do not consume enough mosquitoes to make an appreciable difference in their populations..
MYTH: Spraying for adults is the best method of mosquito control.
REALITY: Adulticiding is the least efficient method. Eliminating mosquitoes before they become adults is preferable.
MYTH: Mosquitoes can transmit AIDS.
REALITY: False, see above.
MYTH: The Citrosa plant repells mosquitoes.
REALITY: Although citrosa oil (citronella) has been used widely as a mosquito repellent, the undisturbed plant itself does not release these oils and is thus not effective as a repellent.
