Everybody is familiar with mosquitos, those aggravating blood suckers that leave upset welts all over your body. Their annoyance, they are responsible for even more human fatalities than any other living insect. Every year mosquitoes trigger even more than a million fatalities worldwide.
They’re not only a risk to public health worldwide, but also here in Fairfax VA and the Metro DC area. In the United States, mosquitos trigger West Nile Virus, Heart Worm in canines and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, not to discuss cases of Malaria and Dengue Fever. Recently, a new lethal illness that has actually started to take hold in the Caribbean called Chikungunya. It’s only a matter of time before it moves to the United States.
Shockingly, in 2010 nearly ten percent of all fatalities in the US from West Nile Virus took place in VA, MD, and Washington DC according to the Center for Disease Control.
How does Backyard Bug Patrol provide mosquito control in Fairfax VA?
Our techs make use of a backpack sprayer. The sprayer shoots out a high powered, extremely fine mist that kills mosquitoes on contact and will install an unnoticeable obstacle that will last approximately three weeks. We offer two different barrier sprays. The first is Flower Power which is comprised of a synthetic derivative of the chrysanthemum flower. The second is called Just Organic and is one hundred percent organic.
How much will our mosquito control service set you back?
Our rates are based upon the size of your yard. The most convenient means to think of it is that our sprays typically cost a bit more than your yard service per cut.
