Mosquitoes

In addition to making almost any outdoor activity more unpleasant, mosquito bites transmit West Nile Virus and Malaria. Worldwide, mosquito-borne diseases have killed more people than any other single factor.

A mosquito's life span is 3 to 100 days, and a female may lay 1,000 to 3,000 eggs during this time. Without the help of Enviro-Tech Pest Services, it wouldn't take long for you and any family or guests to be forced to flee inside!

Our mosquito control treatments incorporate:

  • Nesting and landing site applications
  • Larvicide disbursement in stagnant water
  • Moisture control and remediation

We also can utilize inhibitors, which block mosquitoes' olfactory receptors so they cannot locate their target- you!

A program designed to target biting, stinging, and bloodsucking pests, VectorGuardTM is the answer for homeowners, concerned parents, and anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors without fear of annoyance or disease.
