Mosquitoes can make enjoying the outdoors a hassle. Fortunately, professionals who specialize in exterminating mosquitoes can eliminate the problem. Whether Chicago homeowners are looking for traditional or organic pest solutions, mosquito control services offer a variety of options.
Misting systems and barrier spray services are two mosquito control options that last the whole summer. Misting systems are automated devices with a series of nozzles placed throughout the outdoor area. The nozzles are connected to a controller with a remote, and a pest control mist is sprayed periodically throughout the day. The barrier spray service, on the other hand, is not automated. Instead, a technician manually sprays the area, often on a biweekly or monthly basis. These sprays work best when the sprinklers have been turned off for the day and when rainstorms are not expected.
If homeowners need mosquito control for just one particular day rather than the whole summer, there is another option: special event sprays. For a one-time event such as an outdoor dinner or pool party, technicians will spray the area a day or two in advance, guaranteeing that the space will be mosquito-free on the day of the event.
