Residential Mosquito Control: Get Rid of Mosquitoes in Your Backyard
Take Back Your Summer and Eliminate Mosquitoes at the Source
Although Midwesterners may disagree when it comes to their favorite football team, one thing they do agree on is that nothing ruins a summer BBQ quite like the annoying buzz of mosquitoes. The sound of a mosquito buzzing around your head is enough to make most people start swatting the air. It’s not just the itchy welt that’s left behind after a mosquito’s bite that drives people back indoors, but also the growing concerns over mosquito-borne viruses such as West Nile, Dengue Fever and Zika.
There is a solution to the buzz and bite of mosquitoes though, and that is Wil-Kil’s mosquito reduction programs. By treating mosquitoes at their source, where they are breeding and resting during the day, Wil-Kil can effectively minimize populations on your property without the extensive chemical applications that one would find with a whole lawn treatment. Our philosophy is to eliminate mosquitoes where they are, when they are there, not to just spray everywhere and hope it takes care of the issue.
Mosquito Control Services
Wil-Kil offers both ongoing mosquito control services to provide relief all summer long and special event mosquito treatments if you are hosting a one-time event such as your annual family reunion or a wedding. We can’t successfully reduce mosquitoes on our own though, because many of the favorite breeding areas for mosquitoes are things commonly found in your yard. In addition to mosquito control treatments, Wil-Kil also recommends you take these steps to take back your yard from mosquitoes:
- Eliminate any areas of standing water on your property including potted plants, children’s toys, swings, garden equipment, etc.
- After rainfall, empty anything that has collected water including furniture, trash receptacles, etc.
- Empty bird baths and children’s pools at least once a week
