Most people know that spring ushers in the start of mosquito season, and it peaks during the hot, humid days of summer. The mosquito population begins dwindling dramatically when the weather turns cooler during the fall months. But, what many people don’t know is that while some species of mosquitoes die when the first frost occurs, other types of mosquitoes hibernate. And on warm winter days, hibernating mosquitoes sometimes leave their dormancy. In warm climates such as the southern United States, residents can see mosquito activity all year long.
Mosquito Shield’s mosquito control franchise owners learn how to monitor both the mosquito population and weather conditions to adjust their treatment program as needed. We also teach our mosquito control franchise owners how to rotate control products, leverage proactive scheduling, and use resistance management strategies to deliver superior results.
With this education and training, our Mosquito Shield franchise owners run and have the opportunity to share knowledge with their clients through their own small businesses. In addition to treating properties, owners of a Mosquito Shield mosquito control franchise can offer customers tips for preventing mosquito infestations. You might offer the following preventive suggestions:
Do mosquitoes die during the cold weather months?
If you’ve spent your whole summer dodging mosquitos, you might wonder where they go in the off-season. You may also wish to know how you can prevent them from coming back when the weather turns warm again. As the owner of a mosquito control franchise, you can help people fight mosquitos all year long.
Spring ushers in the start of mosquito season, which peaks during the hot, humid days of summer. The mosquito population begins dwindling dramatically when the weather turns cooler during the fall months. At this time, some species of mosquitos die when the first frost occurs. Other types of mosquitos hibernate, and on warm winter days, hibernating mosquitos sometimes leave their dormancy. In warm climates such as Hawaii and the southern United States, you might see some mosquito activity all year long.
Off-Season Preventive Measures
Because mosquito bites are painful and itchy, and certain types of mosquitos carry potentially dangerous diseases, you might want to do everything in your power to prevent these insects from entering your property when spring rolls around. A few preventive measures include:
• Eliminating standing water on your property
• Remove debris from your yard
• Trim vegetation in your yard
• Plant marigolds on your property
• Invest in mosquito-repelling candles
Besides these DIY tactics, working with a professional mosquito control franchise is a great idea. A mosquito control franchise can utilize both barrier spray treatments and larvicides. Barrier spray treatments annihilate adult mosquitos, while larvicides get rid of mosquitos in the larvae phase of development. Larvicides are often used to target larvae in:
• Retention ponds
• Backyard ponds
