Have you walked out onto your lawn and noticed a lot of mosquitoes buzzing around your property? That means mosquito season has kicked off in Iowa, which is your cue to invest in mosquito control treatments. While you may be considering trying to take care of your mosquito problem yourself, it's much more effective to hire a professional pest control company instead. For one, professionals will know what areas to target and have the right tools and products to keep mosquitos off your property. Without the proper knowledge and equipment, you may end up wasting money while still having a mosquito problem. Additionally, pest control companies will come back to administer treatments before your coverage wears off—something you'd have to remember if you decided to handle mosquito control yourself. Make things easier for yourself by hiring a professional pest control company to take care of your mosquito problem.

Mosquito control professionals will target harborage areas on your property.

If you decide to take mosquito control into your own hands, you'll need to know where to target. The problem is that mosquitos can gather and breed in almost any area with enough shade and the tiniest amount of standing water, which is what makes mosquito control so hard to manage. It's easy to miss certain harborage areas because there are a lot of spots where mosquitoes can hide. However, professional pest control companies will have the knowledge and experience to know what areas to treat. They'll focus on areas where mosquitoes are known to breed to make your property less appealing to these bothersome pests!

If you have a water feature like a pond, you can help keep mosquitoes away by investing in a pond aerator so your water is constantly refreshed.

Pest control companies will use the right products and tools for effective mosquito control.

Using the right products and equipment is critical when it comes to mosquito control. You may end up using an ineffective product or not have the right equipment to administer the treatments effectively. Without using the proper products or equipment, you will just be wasting time and money and you'll still have a mosquito problem on your hands!

However, when you hire a professional pest control company, you can rest assured that they will be using products that are proven to work. Not only that, but the professionals will also have the proper equipment like backpack foggers and lawn applicators so that they can effectively apply their treatments across your property! You can rest easy knowing your money is well-spent as you watch the mosquito population drop on your property!

Professional pest control companies will administer treatments throughout the mosquito season.

Unfortunately, mosquito treatments don't last forever. Products typically last around four to five weeks before their potency wears off. So, if you're not regularly applying treatments on your property, you’ll find yourself with more mosquitoes on your hands in no time. However, you can relax when you hire a professional pest control company to take care of your mosquito problem. You no longer have to worry about remembering to administer treatments because the pros will return before the last treatment wears off, which means there will never be a gap in your coverage throughout mosquito season!
