Mosquito Control in Orlando, FL

Florida is home to more mosquito species than any other state, which explains why Orlando residents are frequent victims of bites from these bloodsucking pests. Not only are mosquito bites annoying, but also these insects can transmit serious diseases, including the West Nile and Zika viruses. When it comes to mosquito control, Orlando homeowners depend on ABC Home & Commercial Services to implement an effective treatment plan to protect both you and your family from these pesky pests.

Effective, long-term mosquito control may require a combination of approaches to be successful.

ABC’s experienced, highly-trained staff use four primary approaches to help homeowners handle a mosquito problem:

Prevent eggs from hatching by eliminating breeding areas. A mosquito only needs a small amount of moisture in which to lay eggs, which it does every three days to produce a staggering amount of eggs each time—as many as 300. For that reason, the first step in an effective mosquito control treatment plan often involves locating and eliminating areas that are ideal breeding grounds.

ABC’s technicians will conduct a thorough survey of your property to identify areas where moisture can accumulate, including inside and around vases, buckets, birdbaths, pet bowls and other containers. We will remove any standing water we find and show you other trouble areas which could pose a problem in the future.

Address resting areas with targeted mobile misting backpacks. You may have noticed that mosquitoes are more active at dusk and dawn. During other parts of the day, these pests take refuge in any thick vegetation you may have in your yard—or even in and around grass and shrubs. To target these resting spots, we equip our technicians with special mobile misting backpacks that they can use to deliver a mosquito-repellent solution in specific areas we know these juvenile and adult pests hide.

Many homeowners choose this no-hassle method for delivering a fine spray or diluted insecticide in problem areas. When applied at multiple, scheduled intervals throughout the day, you can get relief from mosquitoes without harming your children or pets. Simply wait a few hours after an application to enjoy your outdoor areas. You have the flexibility with one of these systems to alter the misting schedule by season or even on a particular day to prepare for an outdoor party or to scale back treatments during the times of the year mosquitoes are less active.

One of our technicians can review all the options with you to determine which option (or options) would work best for your needs.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.

2. Get An Estimate

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

3. Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

4. Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

We’ve already mentioned that a female mosquito can lay up to 300 eggs at a time. Just one female, laying eggs every three days, can add millions of mosquitoes to your property in just a few weeks. Without an advanced understanding of mosquito behavior and breeding habits, it’s no wonder homeowners often call in the experts.

ABC has extensive experience helping homeowners evaluate different management options and choose what makes the most sense for them. Leave the hard work to us, so you can focus on enjoying your outdoor areas again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can I get on the schedule?

We can completely understand that once you decide to act on a mosquito problem, you don’t want to wait long for an appointment. For that reason, we make every effort to get an inspector to your home as quickly as possible once you give us a call.

Does ABC give free estimates?

Absolutely! Once you reach out to ABC, we will send a trained inspector to your property to meet you at a time that is convenient for you.

At this time, the inspector will:

  • Ask you questions to learn more about your problem
  • Conduct a preliminary assessment of the nature and extent of your infestation
  • Identify prime mosquito breeding and nesting areas on your property

Answer any questions you might have about ABC’s approach

Since every pest problem is different, after this meeting, we’ll put together an estimate for you to review. Once you approve the treatment plan, we can find a good time for your first service visit.

Why are mosquitoes so dangerous?

Most of the time, mosquitoes are simply an annoyance. Female mosquitoes have a tube-like appendage on their mouths that they use to suck blood from humans and a variety of other species. The spot where a mosquito “bites” a person can become irritated, forming a welt or a rash. Mosquitoes can make what would normally be an enjoyable outdoor location—such as a swimming pool or patio—completely unusable.

In addition to an annoying bite, mosquitoes can also carry a variety of diseases that are transmittable to people. Mosquito-borne diseases are not as common in the United States as in other parts of the world, but they do occur in Florida.

Malaria is a common disease transmitted by mosquitoes in tropical regions, and a few cases occur in the U.S. every year. Mosquitoes can also carry diseases like West Nile virus, yellow fever, dengue fever, and encephalitis.

How frequently will you treat my property for mosquitoes?

The frequency and duration of your treatment plan will vary, based on the extent of your problem, the time of year and any challenges particular to your home. We do our best to work around our customers’ schedules. We can often treat outdoor areas while homeowners are away at work.

What if I keep on seeing mosquitoes in my yard after treatments have begun?

It’s not uncommon to suddenly see more mosquitoes once technicians begin treatment. We understand that this can be very alarming for our customers. The good news is that increased pest activity is a sign that treatment measures are working to expel these insects out of their normal hiding spots. In most cases, pest activity will die down once the treatments have time to make an impact and after the population dwindles.

“I use ABC for Termite and Rodent treatment/prevention. I called after catching two rats in my attic. They quickly came and installed more traps. They identified all the entry points and did a great job sealing up my house. They are great at communication and take the time to walk me through the entire procedure. They are also taking over my termite control. I had one of the big companies for termites and they were terrible at communication and I felt like they were never giving me the entire story. I love the fact these guys are smaller and really care for every single one of their customers. Thanks ABC!”
