The Ultimate Mosquito Prevention Guide For Dallas Properties

We depend upon guides as we go throughout the day. As we travel to work or to run errands, there are road signs to direct us. When we come home after a long day and want to watch mindless television, we look through the channel listings on our smart TVs. When we purchase a product, we read through the information packet to understand how to assemble the item. If we didn't have guides to help us, we'd be lost as we travel and not know how to create or fix things.

We need guides for nearly everything, including Dallas mosquito control. Unfortunately, we have all been led astray or disappointed by someone or something that claimed to be a guide but didn't have the needed knowledge and experience. If mosquitoes stop you from enjoying a stroll around your house or prevent you from working outside, you need a guide with knowledge gleaned from decades of experience. 

Adams Exterminating is the best company providing mosquito control near you that meets those requirements. We have stopped mosquitoes from ruining outdoor events and enjoyable evenings in yards since 1947. Our fourth-generation pest control company consists of trained entomologists, certified technicians, and a team of experienced office staff. We service over 10,000 homes and businesses, have an A+BBB rating, and have a Google rating of five stars. As you can see, we have the credentials to be the mosquito guide you need to conquer these pesky pests. 

You probably found this article because you need relief from the overwhelming amount of mosquitoes on your Dallas property. So, please keep reading; we will give you the information you need to navigate and resolve your Mosquito problem.

The Dangerous Diseases Mosquitoes Are Known To Spread

It is good that insects, spiders, birds, and other creatures are allies in the battle against mosquitoes because they carry diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), mosquitoes are the deadliest animal in the world. Sadly, most deaths occur in third-world countries where people succumb to mosquito-spread malaria. The CDC reported that 619,000 people worldwide died, and another 27 million became ill in 2019 from malaria. Fortunately, malaria has not been a health problem in the United States since the 1950s, but that does not mean mosquitoes don't spread other diseases.

Mosquitos are vectors for these diseases in the Dallas area:

  • West Nile virus
  • Dengue
  • Chikungunya
  • Encephalitis
  • Tularemia

To better guide you on your quest, let's briefly examine the symptoms of diseases you can get from mosquitoes.

Naturally Effective Mosquito Prevention Tips For Around The Yard

Mosquitoes are everywhere, and it is impossible to eradicate all mosquitoes or keep every mosquito from flying onto your property. Adams Exterminating will significantly reduce mosquitoes on your Dallas property, but for maximum results, we recommend the following:

  • Remove water-collecting items in the yard.
  • Provide drainage to ditches, gutters, low-lying areas, and potted plants.
  • Change bird bath water frequently.
  • Install a sprinkler in the retention pond.
  • Eliminate overgrown vegetation and leaf piles. 
  • Elevate wood piles to allow for air circulation.
  • Mow the grass short.
  • Plant mosquito-repelling plants

The key is a yard free from moisture-trapping debris that is conducive to airflow and sunlight. 

In addition to the suggestions for your lawn, you can prevent mosquitoes from invading your Dallas home by repairing window and door screens, sealing foundation and roofline cracks, and keeping exterior doors closed as much as possible. 

The best way to get rid of mosquitoes in the yard is to partner with Adams Exterminating.

  • Do you offer any organic/green/low toxic treatments?

    We do offer “green” treatments because we understand that though the synthetic pesticides that we typically use are quite safe, some people for various valid reasons prefer a green approach to pest control. In addition to employing completely non-chemical measures such as structural and mechanical alterations (weep-hole exclusions, recommendations on door sweep replacement etc.) and glue traps or other monitoring devices, we have a number of natural and botanical insecticides that we can use to treat your home or business.

    We commonly use natural products such as boric acid, diatomaceous earth, and a number of different botanical products (pyrethrum, rosemary oil, cedar oil, etc.). These products can be very effective when used properly. One downside is that they usually don't last as long as synthetic pesticides, so we generally recommend a more frequent treatment cycle, such as monthly, when using these products. Just tell the person you speak with on the phone or the technician who services your property about your preference and we will be happy to accommodate you.

  • Are the products/chemicals you use safe?
    All of the products that we use have undergone extensive testing and have been approved for use by the EPA. Instead of using generic products, we believe in purchasing the best available chemicals that have been manufactured by well-known companies such as Bayer, BASF, and Dow. Additionally, all of our service programs are designed to be effective, safe, and environmentally responsible and all of the products we use are chosen to that end. When used properly by a licensed professional, they pose practically no risk to our customers or their children or pets.
  • What are the steps to take prior to receiving flea treatment?
    Please review our flea treatment information sheet found here.
  • How many years have you been in business?
    We are a family owned, locally operated pest control company that has been in business since 1947. For over 75 years, our company has expanded its service area while continuing to provide exceptional customer service.

The Best Mosquito Control Solution For Dallas Properties

To drastically reduce the current mosquito population around your Dallas home, you need mosquito control in Dallas from Adams Exterminating. We will dispatch a trained, certified technician to inspect your property for mosquito attractants and hot spots. For those wanting mosquito control from March through October (the most active months), we treat bushes, dense ground cover, small bushy trees, and other mosquito breeding areas monthly. Furthermore, we will alert you to attractants on your property.

Although March through October are peak months of mosquito activity, they are active throughout the year due to our seasonably warm Texas climate. We install In2Care mosquito bait stations on your Dallas property for those wanting year-round protection. The stagnant water inside the traps lures fertilized females that enter the traps and land on a netting laced with an EPA-approved biological fungus. The fungus sticks to their bodies, and they spread it to breeding areas, killing the offspring and other adults. The fungi also destroy the eggs deposited by the female into the water. The In2Care system provides 24/7 year-round mosquito protection around your Dallas home. Contact us today to learn about our mosquito control programs and get your free estimate.
