Residents of the Buckhead area, like everyone else in the South, have to cope with mosquitos that make it unpleasant to spend time outside in warm months. Some of the features that make the fashionable district desirable contribute to the mosquito population. Birdbaths and flower pots are elegant accents, but they provide a perfect breeding environment for the biting insect. At MosqutoNix, we use superior technology to control the mosquito population in any Buckhead yard.
Understanding Health Threats
Infection control experts contend that more than 170 species live in the United States and that not all of them bite. Among the biting population, approximately half actually deliver a sting. The female needs protein from warm blood in order to produce eggs. Mosquitos carry West Nile Virus that infects them when they eat infected birds. There is no vaccine for it, and eliminating the mosquito population is the most effective procedure.
Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that Chikungunya is present in all states except three in the Northwest. The virus causes pounding headaches, fever that may spike and painful joints, often requiring hospitalization. Mosquitos are responsible for infecting dogs with heart worm disease that is expensive, painful, difficult to cure and often fatal.
Protecting Friends and Family
To protect the residents of the greater Atlanta metro area, we offer two treatment programs that are particularly effective in depleting our mosquito population.
MosquitoNix Misting System
For the utmost in convenience and effectiveness, you can rely on our misting system for a 95-99 percent reduction in mosquitos in your yard. We study them and we understand their habits, and we put our knowledge to use when we design our misting systems. We use safe, odorless and biodegradable products to target mosquitos throughout the day when they are active or inactive. By activating your misting system through strategically located nozzles, we can decimate the population.
QuickNix™ Mosquito Treatment Program
With our innovative and proprietary treatment program, we offer the most effective deterrent on the market. The first step in our QuickNix™ program is to saturate areas of your yard where adult mosquitos live. Our high pressure sprayers penetrate brush and pine straw that are breeding grounds for them. Our next step is to distribute granules of repellent in areas that are your activity centers. Finally, we treat standing water with larvacide to destroy eggs before they hatch.
As the time approaches for entertaining family and friends outdoors, you can take control of your yard and make it pleasant for everyone to enjoy. We are experts in managing the mosquito population, and we offer free inspections and quotes to help you regain control of your yard.
