With more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes on the planet, this pervasive pest can cause all kinds of problems. They can carry deadly diseases like malaria, encephalitis, yellow and dengue fevers and the West Nile virus. Dealing with these pests yourself can be nearly impossible.

Without professional mosquito control treatment, it can be difficult to get rid of these pests. DIY mosquito treatments normally only target adult bugs, leaving the next generation to hatch and make your life difficult. If you rely on our mosquito expert, we can:
Of all members of the animal kingdom, few produce the same level of enmity in humanity as the tiny but ubiquitous mosquito. From the annoying whining in our ears to their uncanny ability to avoid a swat, to the itchy welt they leave between our shoulder blades, just a handful of these blood-sucking pests can quickly come to feel like a Biblical plague. Some scientists, citing the advancement of global warming, anticipate that the mosquito crisis will only continue to grow in the coming years.
With more than 3,000 species of mosquitoes on the planet, many can carry deadly diseases like malaria, elephantiasis, encephalitis, yellow and dengue fevers, and the West Nile Virus. Global efforts* to stop the spread of mosquitoes and the diseases they carry have been mostly ineffective. Mosquito-borne diseases result in millions of annual deaths worldwide, mostly children and the elderly in developing countries.
Unfortunately, trying to deal with these bothersome bugs on your own is likely to be a frustrating and uphill battle and, especially if you live near stagnant water sources, ultimately ineffective. The problem with non-professional solutions is two-fold.
First, while the corner drugstore is loaded with sprays that will kill bugs, few of them can target just mosquitoes. Instead, they will wipe out everything they come in contact with, including insects that are beneficial, even vital to the ecosystems of gardens, orchards, and ornamental flora. Others can be dangerous to pets that come in contact with them, leading to sickness and even death. The main reason, however, those over-the-counter solutions tend to have (very) short term results, is that they target only the adult mosquito. Every adult female mosquito that's buzzing around your head can produce up to 500 more mosquitoes in her lifetime, the vast majority of which are still hiding safely underwater in the form of eggs, larva, or pupa...a life cycle that takes up to 10 days to reach maturity. In other words, no matter how many you may kill today with that aerosol spray, vast numbers are somewhere nearby, ready to take their place at any time during the next week.
Our professional exterminators, on the other hand, are trained to know exactly where to look and what to look for in a possible infestation. We have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to target the bugs you don't want, without killing the ones you want, all while minimizing the use of potentially toxic chemicals. More importantly, we know how to find and eliminate the immature mosquitoes in the breeding pools that are causing your problem in the first place.
Killing all of the mosquitoes that are on your property, in all of their life-cycles, is the key to stopping an infestation for good.
Whether you're concerned about a West-Nile outbreak or just tired of slapping yourself silly during backyard BBQ's, your best bet for a pest-free property is to call a licensed professional, like Katy Pest Control Services. We have fully-trained, experienced exterminators identify and eliminate your pesky problem once and for all.
