Did you know that Atlanta ranks as one of the worst cities in the U.S. for mosquitoes? Mosquitoes in Georgia are most active from late spring through early fall when there is a high risk for them to transmit diseases like the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Yellow Fever, and Encephalitis. With over 3,000 species worldwide and the high risk of getting a disease from their bite, they are one of the most deadliest animals on the planet. Therefore, it is critical to control and prevent mosquito activity.
Mosquito Control and Prevention
To control and prevent mosquito activity on your residential or commercial property, Bigham Services will customize a plan that improves your quality of life while protecting everyone at home or business. Control and prevention also protects your property values and prevents the potential transmission of disease.
When considering controlling mosquito activity, it is not an easy task. The females can lay up to 300 eggs at a time. They primarily breed around drainage and sewer systems and like cool, dark or shaded, and damp locations that are out of the wind. It is knowledge such as this, along with experience in controlling and preventing mosquito activity, that helps Bigham Services address problems.
For effective control, we use the best solutions by creating an outdoor spray program using Delta Gard® and Suspend® Polyzone® by Bayer.
Delta Gard® provides fast results that immediately eliminate mosquitoes. Delta Gard® is a spray that can work in as little as 10 to 15 minutes. It’s effective, performing like a traditional oil-based spray but with a low application rate and no volatile organic compounds. It can safely be used around pets and livestock.
Suspend® Polyzone®, a residual barrier treatment, is applied after Delta Gard® is used. Its innovative combination of a trusted active ingredient (deltamethrin) with a proprietary polymer suspension helps it stay effective in the toughest of conditions for up to 90 days. The proprietary polymer formulation provides a more evenly distribution of the active ingredient, which helps increase bioavailability. This makes it a better choice for mosquito control.
To control and prevent mosquitoes, Bigham Services can customize a home mosquito control program for your residence or business. For more information on services to protect your home or office against pests and termites, contact Bigham Services at 770-483-8640 or complete our contact form.
