What’s the Best Defense Against Mosquitoes?

Living in Florida we love our warm temperatures, beaches, lakes, and wetlands, unfortunately so do mosquitoes. When mosquito season starts our lush, tropical paradise can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes who want nothing more than to bite every living creature in sight, including you.
Mosquitos are not only irritating when they bite but they can spread diseases also. You need expert mosquito control professionals. Most mosquito repellent sprays, simply don’t work. We have a better solution

When to Prepare for Mosquito Season?

Mosquito larvae will generally begin to hatch around March April in North Florida but a particularly warm winter can bring them out earlier.

How it Works

Critter Control Gainesville’s Mosquito Trap is made of strong plastic and uses water with a specific odor that attracts mosquitoes. Once inside, mosquitoes contact the specially treated gauze near the water surface and get contaminated with a larvicide and a fungus. We know that mosquitos like to divide their eggs over many sites so we let them fly out of the Trap while carrying larvicide on their legs. They transport the larvicide and will contaminate many breeding sites around the trap. In this way, we can kill larvae in small and hard-to-find breeding sources. The mosquito also gets infected with an insect-specific fungus that kills her before she can spread diseases.

The Best Mosquito Plan

Once Mosquitoes start to bite it means the eggs have hatched and they are active. Although it’s not to late to control mosquitoes at this point, Critter Control recommends starting to control these pests before they are active.
