Florence brings Flooding and Mosquitoes to PWC

Virginia floodingAs the remnants of Hurricane Florence have pushed farther north and west of the eastern seaboard, heavy rains have inundated areas of northern Virginia and caused flooding as far north as DC. Not only did the areas around the floodplains get a major increase in flooding, but the ground in general became heavily saturated with rainwater, thus providing a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes to lay eggs and increase their number.

Mosquito Breeding in Wet Yard Areas

Mosquito life cycleMosquitoes will typically lay their eggs in areas where rainwater collects naturally, such as in ponds and along the banks of rivers and streams, but with all the rain that Florence brought to Prince William County quite a few homeowners have noticed that mosquito populations have increased dramatically since the storm. This is because the mosquitoes can now easily lay their eggs in just about any location where there is still water pooling from the rains, and until the ground is fully dry this will continue unless action is taken to eliminate the mosquitoes ability to reproduce.

Mosquito Exterminators can Remedy the Excess Mosquito Populations

Homeowners and business owners in PWC towns like Manassas, Woodbridge, Bristow, and Gainesville have found out quickly that the normal methods of controlling mosquito populations don’t work very well when dealing with the abundance of adult mosquitoes and their larvae which are being found in areas where they normally don’t go, so calling expert mosquito control company’s like Mosquito Tek is the only viable solution to completely eliminating the excess mosquitoes. Mosquito Tek can come in and not only kill all the adult mosquitoes, but they can also kill all the eggs and larvae throughout the grassy areas of your yard.

Killing the Mosquitoes using Organic Mosquito Control

Although it’s recommended in the worst case scenarios of mosquito infestations that a full strength commercial grade insecticide be used to address killing the mosquitoes, Mosquito Tek can also treat this extreme issue with an organic alternative that has only all-natural ingredients in the insecticide. Both conventional and organic insecticides will exterminate all the mosquitoes, and while the conventional insecticide effectively lasts up to 3 weeks, the organic mosquito control insecticides will last up to 2 weeks.

Create a Larger Area of Protection Against Mosquitoes with a Neighborhood Plan

Whenever a mosquito technician performs a mosquito service for a property, there is still the properties that surround the area where the treatment has been done that can serve as breeding areas for mosquitoes. The best way to expand the area that will not only kill off all the mosquitoes and their larvae within the local vicinity of a neighborhood is to get neighbors together to purchase an extermination plan as a group. By doing so the costs can be spread out and a discount can be enjoyed by all the participants. Contact Mosquito Tek today and ask about the Neighborhood discount plans.

Heavy Rains from Florence bring Flooding and Mosquitoes to NOVA

As Hurricane Florence pounded the Carolina’s and brought record setting amounts of rainfall, Virginia residents found out that the sheer size of this storm also sent large amounts of rain, tornadoes and flooding well into the Northern Virginia area and into DC. Couple the flooding throughout Fairfax and Arlington counties with the already high temperatures, and suddenly the area becomes a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Widespread Breeding areas for Mosquitoes

mosquito larvaeCompany owners and homeowners in areas like Alexandria are noticing the increase of mosquitoes after the rains have subsided, and one of the main reasons why this is happening is because mosquitoes lay their eggs in water where they hatch and the larvae can feed and grow into adult mosquitoes. Normally this happens where water occurs naturally such as in ponds or on the edges of rivers, streams, and lakes, but with the ground in Northern Virginia being heavily saturated, mosquitoes can quickly reproduce within the grassy areas where flooding has occurred.

Controlling Mosquito Populations with Professional Extermination

While some homeowners will try their best to control the additional mosquito populations using insecticides from their local hardware supply store, the only way to truly exterminate both the adult mosquitoes and their eggs is to leave it in the hands of mosquito control experts who not only understand where to use larvicides that will kill the larvae, but also wipe out all the adult mosquitoes using highly concentrated commercial grade mosquito insecticides. Mosquito Tek provides mosquito extermination services throughout Northern Virginia locations such as Alexandria, Arlington, Reston, and Annandale, and can effectively eliminate them using either conventional insecticides, or using organic mosquito control methods that use insecticides which are 100% safe under every circumstance with all-natural ingredients.

Eliminating Mosquitoes using Organic Methods

Even though most people elect to have the mosquito technicians use the strongest spray available when performing a treatment, there are many who have organic gardens or have businesses where there is a need for using insecticides which contain only all-natural ingredients. Mosquito Tek provides an organic mosquito control treatment that will not only kill all the additional mosquitoes that are plaguing the area from the flooding, but can do so with no impact on the environment whatsoever.

Expand the Radius of Protection Against the Mosquitoes with a Neighborhood Group Plan

When a mosquito extermination treatment is done on only a single location without treating the properties surrounding it, there are still locations where mosquitoes have an opportunity to breed. One of the best ways to expand the area where mosquitoes are not only exterminated, but their breeding sites get wiped out and the barrier spray can cover a wider area is to group neighbors together and get the advantages of group pricing by having multiple properties done simultaneously. Mosquito Tek offers discount pricing to groups and will work with your neighborhood to completely eradicate mosquitoes from making your neighborhood their home.

Norfolk Flooding from Florence Increases Mosquitoes

Hurricane FlorenceNorfolk residents were spared the brunt of the damage when Hurricane Florence made landfall along the North Carolina coastline, but unfortunately the storm was so large that the rain bands extended well into the Virginia Beach and Norfolk area. Flooding in Norfolk has not only made some of the low-lying areas impassable for traffic, but the excess water is also proving to be a haven for mosquitoes that thrive by breeding in water when temperatures and humidity are high.

Increased Mosquito Breeding Locations

Even though Norfolk is already surrounded by water, the saturation of rains has opened up new areas for mosquitoes to breed that normally remain dry around homes and businesses. Most mosquitoes tend to lay their eggs in areas where water collects naturally such as ponds and along the edges of lakes and streams, but now they can reproduce within wet yards that are closer to buildings.

Professional Mosquito Exterminators can Lessen Breeding Cycles

Normally a mosquito control technician would treat the areas where water collects naturally with larvicides and then spray the dry grounds with mosquito insecticides, but with the added water from the flooding the normal methods require a different extermination plan that can address the wet locations that might serve as potential breeding sites. The experts at Mosquito Tek have been eliminating mosquitoes since 2011 and have seen every type of worst case scenario where flooding can make mosquito extermination difficult. Homeowners and company owners can save themselves the expense and headaches of trying to tackle the project themselves by simply calling in Mosquito Tek to not only kill all the adult mosquitoes that have increased since the storm, but they can also decrease the potential areas of breeding by killing off all the larvae where mosquitoes have laid their eggs.

Safe Mosquito Control Solutions

bee safe mosquito controlThe first reaction to the increased amount of mosquito activity is to want to use the strongest insecticides possible to kill off as many adult mosquitoes as possible, and although that might be the best plan of action for the worst case scenarios, there are many people who want to make sure their organic gardens aren’t affected by chemicals or they want to make sure that only mosquitoes are eliminated and not helpful insects like bees. For cases such as this Mosquito Tek uses an all-natural insecticide that is 100% safe for the environment but will kill all the mosquitoes it comes in contact with.

Eliminate Mosquitoes through Neighborhood Mosquito Control

The most effective way to deal with increased mosquito populations after flooding occurs is to collectively treat as many homes or businesses as possible that are next to each other. This expands not only the initial elimination of the mosquito populations, but it widens the barrier of protection against mosquitoes whereas neighboring houses that aren’t treated can sometimes be prime breeding locations that can feed new mosquitoes as they hatch. Mosquito Tek wants to make sure that neighborhoods can collectively group together and shield their areas from the mosquito infestations that can result from the flooding by offering a discount whenever 2 or more homes or businesses purchase mosquito control plans together.

Hurricane Florence increases Mosquitoes in Raleigh

Hurricane FlorenceAlthough the Research Triangle was spared the devastating winds of a Category 3 or Category 4 storm when Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday 9/14/2018, heavy rains have caused widespread flooding throughout southeastern North Carolina and has drenched the Raleigh area. Even though the main effects of the winds and rain have diminished in Raleigh, the saturation of the rain has left the area prone to mosquitoes that normally breed where water is prevalent and both heat and humidity are extreme. Raleigh is already listed at #6 in the top 20 worst mosquito cities in the United States, and with the current conditions left from Hurricane Florence, it’s predicted that there will be a major increase for mosquitoes not only in Raleigh, but in most North Carolina cities and towns.

Saturated Ground Makes Uncommon Locations Perfect for Mosquito Breeding

Most Raleigh based mosquito control companies will typically address mosquito breeding locations where water tends to collect naturally, such as ponds and streams that are within close proximity of a house or business where they are performing a mosquito control treatment. The problem with the flooding from Florence is that it has made areas that don’t normally experience cycles of mosquito breeding primed for mosquitoes to lay eggs. With this being the case mosquitoes don’t have to travel far to lay their eggs and rapidly reproduce.

Get Ahead of Mosquito Infestation with a Professional Exterminator

The Mosquito Tek Exterminator
Most homeowners just don’t have the resources to combat heavy mosquito infestations such as what Raleigh is now facing from all the mosquitoes left from Hurricane Florence, and even the most effective mosquito repellents or store bought insecticides won’t prevent mosquitoes from turning yards into havens for mosquito larvae to flourish. Professional mosquito exterminators such as Mosquito Tek have not only the best commercial grade insecticides needed to eliminate the worst cases of mosquito infestations, but they also have the experience needed to make sure that the breeding cycles will be broken.

Neighborhoods Work Collectively to Control Mosquito Populations

When disasters strike, North Carolinian’s are known for their resolve in helping each other overcome whatever damage is done to their neighborhoods, and as the cities and towns of eastern North Carolina work toward clearing downed trees and restore lost power, the people in Raleigh are faced with helping each other reduce the impact of heavy mosquito populations not only on their own property, but on properties adjacent to their home which can still be havens for mosquitoes unless the barrier for preventing their return is as wide as possible. Mosquito Tek understands that the most effective mosquito control treatments involve treating the widest area possible, and to help the Raleigh residents they have a neighborhood discount where homeowners can get together and purchase a treatment plan as a group.

Protecting the Environment while Killing the Mosquito Infestations

Raleigh might be faced with trying to eliminate a large influx of mosquitoes, but it doesn’t have to come at the cost of damaging the delicate ecosystem within the area. As business owners and homeowners start the process of getting mosquito populations under control around their home or company property, areas that are sensitive to chemical based insecticides can be treated with all-natural mosquito insecticides that won’t harm organic gardens, wildlife, or add risk to families and pets. Ask about organic mosquito control if this is a concern when you call in to order the mosquito service.
