Mosquito Control Bristow
Bristow is located just 30 miles away from Washington, D.C. It was voted one of best places to own a home in Virginia by Nerd Wallet and this is due in part to the growth of the area in the last thirty years. With a population of 29,346, it is an up and coming community in Prince William County (Wikipedia.org). Bristow is also home to the Jiffy Lube Live concert arena and offers a number of live outdoor events each year.
There are a number of small ponds or lakes in the area, which can provide breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Although the winters can get cold, a mild winter can lead to an increase in the mosquito and tick population in the area, especially in the spring. If you want to enjoy your time outside on a warm summer evening, but you are stuck inside hiding from mosquitoes, Mosquito Tek can help you take your summer back with a comprehensive mosquito control program.
Organic and Conventional Treatment Options
At Mosquito Tek, we offer two different treatment options for you to choose from. Each of the options are safe and effective at eliminating mosquitoes around your home. You can talk to your technician to determine which option is the best one for your situation.
- We use the Essentria products for our organic treatment options. This product line is NOP compliant and it has no aquatic setback. It is considered safe to use on organic vegetable gardens and it is a good option for daycare centers, restaurant owners, and homeowners. The treatment will be applied every two weeks.
- The Talstar product line is our conventional treatment option. This has a strong mosquito knockdown. It will need to be applied every three weeks.
Eliminating Mosquitoes Where They Breed
Spraying for mosquitoes is just one step of an effective treatment option. It is also important to address the mosquito larvae. We do this with two steps. The first is an inspection of your property to empty any containers that may have collected standing water. The next step is to apply a larvicide to any natural areas of standing water. The mosquito larvae will eat this and die, but it will not affect other aquatic insects.
Optional Flea and Tick Control
As part of our commitment to provide you quality service at good value, we offer a flea and tick control treatment upgrade as an option with each mosquito treatment. Ticks are known carriers of a number of serious diseases including Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Fleas can transmit the plague and may make your pets very sick. This treatment will allow you to send your family outside without worrying about constantly applying bug spray.
