ABC provides two recurring mosquito suppression programs: High Impact and In2Care®. Both programs will reduce the mosquito population, but be aware that neither will eradicate the problem completely. This is why it’s important to take additional measures to prevent potentially dangerous bites.
High Impact Suppression Program
ABC uses traditional products to repel and kill large infestations. Using a backpack blower, we treat shrubs, trees, and foliage around the home. In addition, we will inspect and treat as needed any other areas outside your home that might also provide conditions that are attractive to mosquitoes.
IN2CARE Mosquito Program®
In addition to our traditional treatments, ABC now utilizes In2Care Mosquito Control. In2Care is a device placed around your yard that attracts and impacts egg-laying mosquitoes with an insect growth regulator (IGR) that prevents eggs from developing. It spreads to other mosquitoes when the affected mosquito travels to and infects another pool of water. Eggs laid in any water with the IGR in it will not develop This form of residual mosquito control is environmentally friendly and does not involve the use of pesticides.
Homeowners can reduce local mosquito population by eliminating pools of standing water where mosquitoes tend to breed, which includes drying puddles or emptying any receptacle where water has collected, including garbage cans, pots, and kiddie pools.
To truly eliminate mosquitoes, you’ll need the help of a pest control professional.
ABC offers a Healthy Home Plan, which includes both recurring mosquito control services outside to protect you and your loved ones from diseases mosquitoes transmit and home disinfectant services indoors to kill viruses and bacteria, including the coronavirus.
Inside your home, our licensed technicians will apply an EPA-approved disinfectant on all surfaces. These treatments are proven to eliminate many pathogens, including the coronavirus, hantavirus, Hepatitis B and C, HIV and two strains of the flu.
Customers who take advantage of our Healthy Home Plan also receive regular mosquito control treatments to prevent the transmission of serious illnesses from these pests as well.
Are the products you use friendly for pets and children?
The treatment products we use have been selected with pets and children as our number one priority. Our low-impact products deliver the most effective treatment possible while maintaining ethical responsibility to you and your family.
Are mosquitoes dangerous?
Most Texans consider mosquitoes a nuisance—at worst the cause of a night of intense itching. But mosquitoes are a real public health problem as they can carry serious diseases. Malaria, for instance, is a mosquito-borne illness that has sickened millions around the world. Here in Texas, we have seen cases of West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, and Encephalitis—all of which are transmittable via mosquito bites—so it’s only prudent to take preventative steps to minimize the mosquito population around your home.
