Antipest has a powerful mosquito control service that ensures your business and home are free of flying pests, keeping safety and comfort a priority. Aside from ruining outdoor occasions, mosquitoes transmit diseases too, which is why it is so important to find a way of dealing with them. Our professional exterminators are equipped with cutting-edge machines and sprays that provide constant relief from pesky insects. Our programme will take care of your specific problems, thus ensuring that you get satisfactory results at all times. All you have to do is schedule an inspection.
How we do it?
We work around the perimeter of your residential or business building – that is, we do not spray any indoor areas. We only need access to your yard to get started. The equipment we use resembles a big backpack with an attachment on it. It allows for precise and smooth application as we move carefully around your place. Our barrier sprays take effect immediately and continue to work for three weeks after the initial treatment. Part of the substance kills the insects right away and the other portion sticks to foliage, additionally helping to drive mosquitoes away.
Furthermore, we examine buildings for potential breeding grounds of mosquitoes and existing populations of larvae. We treat these accordingly but will also suggest ways to minimise the risk of that happening again. If you are not at home when the task is being tackled, we will leave you a note on the door with all the details you need to know.
A: Our sprays are made of synthetic forms of organic compounds such as pyrethrins/pyrethrum. They come with similar chemical structures to their natural equivalent and are not harmful for plants. We also use environmentally-friendly products that are safe for gardens, ponds, and aquatic life.
A: Not necessarily. As long as you ensure free access to the yard (i.e. the gate is unlocked), we are okay with you not being there at the time of the service. But please make sure to keep all your pets indoors so that they are safe during the treatment.
A: As far as the product itself is concerned, it does not interfere with water and is not likely to cause any problems. Just in case though, our specialists are trained to work carefully around such areas so as not to allow the spray to land in the pool.
A: You should wait at least 30 minutes before you can enjoy spending time in your outdoor area again. This is just about the time needed for the product to dry.
A: We do not spray on rainy days but rain should not be a concern to you at all. Our products were made to last. As long as they have enough time to dry, they cannot be removed so easily from the surface they are applied to.
A: The average duration of the service is 20-30 minutes but it can take longer for larger yards. The effects of the spraying will begin to wear off after approximately one month, which means you need to schedule more treatments if you want to keep mosquitoes at bay throughout the whole season.
