It is that time of the year again when people in Brisbane enjoy the outdoors but unfortunately so do mosquitoes and ticks. Are mosquitoes a big problem? If so please read on. A big reason why there are so many mosquitoes around Brisbane is that we have received so much rain lately which is perfect breeding weather for both mosquitoes and ticks.
Did You Know
Mosquitoes will rest underneath leaves during the day then on dusk they search for someone or something to attack. Mosquitoes have unique sensory receptors which detect tiny variations of carbon dioxide in the environment which in turn is the reason why they will attack people within seconds.
Most homeowners in Brisbane do not realise that a professional pest control company like Conquer Termites can spray around the home to create a treated zone to reduce the threat of mosquitoes and ticks. Our specialised treatment for mosquitoes and ticks consists of us spraying a fine mist of chemicals over the grass, trees, under decks and pergolas, under eves and gutters, any dark areas around the house, and anywhere we think mosquitoes and ticks will hibernate. Having Conquer Termites spray for mosquitoes will reduce the mosquito population by 95%.
Our treatment works well as we live in a humid warm climate perfect for mosquitoes to breed. Our treatment lasts for approximately 3 months, if there is no significant drop in mosquitoes we will come back and spray your home again.
