Whether it is a one-time application for a big event or regular service to provide season-long control, Synergy² can design a mosquito control program to fit your family’s needs. Mosquito infestations in the South are not only a nuisance, they present a serious health risk to both humans (West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Malaria) and animals (Heart worms). Mosquitoes are the prime vector for the deadly West Nile virus which infected over 5,500 people in the U.S. in 2012, resulting in 286 deaths. Mississippi is one of 7 states that account for over 60% of all West Nile cases.
Our technicians have been trained in the use of specialized mistblowers to distribute insecticides in areas where mosquitoes are most likely to rest at night. This includes the underside of leaves, shrubs, and trees as well as flowerbeds and eaves and overhangs. Mosquitoes contacting the insecticides and insect growth regulators quickly die and/or lose their ability to breed. Proper mosquito population management requires a team approach. Homeowners should be aware of areas where water is likely to stand. These areas could include gutters, flowerbeds, pots, outdoor toys, etc. It only takes a capful of water to provide an effective breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Repellents containing 20% DEET are extremely effective in reducing your family’s risk of mosquito bites. Synergy² mosquito barrier applications can significantly reduce your family’s exposure to the world’s most deadly animal for up to 30 days. We combine the latest technology in mosquito adulticides and insect growth regulators to create a synergistic effect impacting not only existing mosquitoes but future mosquito reproduction as well.
