Mosquito Pest Control Columbus Ohio

The Importance of Mosquito Pest Control for your home​

Mosquitoes can turn your outdoor patio or home into uncomfortable environments, disrupting relaxation while you try and swat them away to avoid being bitten. Not only do their bites cause itchy bumps and annoy you, but mosquitos are also potential carriers of deadly diseases such as West Nile Virus, Zika, Malaria, Yellow Fever, and more viruses. 

Considering they live outdoors, full “mosquito extermination” is not possible, but we can control the environment around your home and spray so they avoid living around your home. This will prevent mosquitoes from multiplying and will protect your family and loved ones from any unnecessary exposure to potential dangerous diseases carried by these insects.

Protect Your Family With an Elite Mosquito Control Treatment Service

An Elite mosquito control service plan includes a combination of monthly treatments with a colorless and odorless mist that will repel and disrupt the mosquito’s life cycle. We treat monthly (3-4 weeks) to control the population (not total eradication) around your:

  • exterior living spaces
  • under decks
  • around patios
  • Bushes
  • Foliage
  • shaded areas
  • other non-flower bearing vegetation

This will prevent mosquito larvae from becoming adults that are able to bite and potentially carry diseases.You will often see a decrease within one service, but sometimes it can take 2 services and mosquito treatments must be applied on a regular basis to continue to be effective. Most customers notice a night and day difference, but there will never be zero mosquitoes in your yard. We still recommend other mosquito control and protection methods such as citronella candles, mosquito repellant spray, etc. 

A combination of our mosquito treatments and traditional mosquito repellants will keep your outdoor spaces fun, and mosquito free, protecting your family from mosquito-borne diseases.
