Take the Bite Out of Your Backyard!
Mosquito management involves very comprehensive treatment strategies including those established by public health authorities and mosquito abatement agencies. The experts at Paramount Pest Management provide adult mosquito population control around properties across Nassau and Suffolk Counties, New York City, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens, as part of an overall perimeter pest management program. We have dedicated a significant amount time and resources learning how to defeat mosquito's and our overall Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy of inspection, site correction and treatment will allow you to enjoy the outdoors again.
Mosquitoes lay eggs in still, standing water. Even a teaspoon of water is enough for Mosquitos to breed. These eggs hatch into larvae, which turn into biting adults. The entire maturation process from egg to adult might take only seven days under ideal conditions. Our inspections focus on any current or potential breeding sites around your property that may hold enough water to maintain life cycle development. Old tires, flowerpots, garbage cans, poorly drained gutters, toys, poor grade slope or soil depressions, tree holes/cavities, bird baths, non-functioning fountains, watering cans, sump-pump discharge, and air conditioner discharge are examples of potential breeding sites. Once identified, it is very important that we work together to remove and/or drain all breeding sites, if practical. We also inspect all windows and doors for screens that are in need of repair.
If necessary, the technicians at Paramount Pest Management will collect specimens to be identified by the local extension office. In recent years, an invasive species of mosquito has migrated from the Southeast region of the United States to Nassau County. It is the Asian Tiger Mosquito, named for its aggressive behavior and color.
We all want to enjoy the great outdoors, but it’s no fun when your family and guests are being eaten alive by mosquito’s, some of which can carry disease. Mosquitoes are one of the most common and important bloodsucking insects. The adult female mosquito feeds on the warm blood of mammals (including us), birds, and on the cold blood of fish, reptiles and amphibians. Mosquitoes are one of the most important public health pests due to vectoring of disease-causing pathogens. These mosquito-borne pathogens cause diseases like the West Nile Virus, Malaria, Yellow Fever, Dengue and Encephalitis. Worldwide, these diseases afflict tens of millions people per year and kill millions per year as well. In the US, West Nile Virus is spreading westward by way of infected birds and encephalitis outbreaks are occurring more frequently.
Once inspection information is gathered by our technicians, we then determine the best management strategy and discuss it with it with you to be sure that we will meet your needs and address your concerns. This may require the involvement of local mosquito-abatement agencies to address large breeding sites such as ponds, if applicable.
Once our assessment is complete, an exterior treatment program is then developed that will include the application of a low repellent insecticide that offers the benefit of a long lasting adulticide with a high kill rate. Treatments are typically rendered around landscaping, lawns and buildings (where breeding sites have been observed) via low volume backpack misters that deliver the right amount of product to do the job without overly wetting areas, thereby minimizing runoff and long re-entry times.
