Take Back Your Yard With Rose Mosquito Control Treatments

Where do mosquitoes come from?

Mosquito populations rise and fall in relation to many variables, most importantly weather. After a period of wet weather followed by warm temperatures you will typically experience a notable rise in mosquito activity in the form of annoying buzzing and ankle biting.

How can I prevent mosquitoes from taking over my yard?

  • Eliminate (or regularly refresh) standing water around the home where mosquitoes breed. This includes birdbaths, flowerpots, grill covers, baby pools, unopened swimming pools, tires and other objects where water collects.

  • Assess the drainage and grading on your property to minimize mosquito habitat.

  • Ensure the openings to your home are protected with general purpose screen (mesh size 18 strands per inch, or finer) to prevent entry.

 

How does Rose get rid of mosquitoes?

Our trained technicians survey your property for mosquito activity and areas where mosquitoes are likely to breed. We offer one-time treatments typically used to eliminate mosquitoes for a specific period or event, or recurring treatments that are designed to eliminate and prevent mosquito activity around your home for the entire season.

How long do Rose mosquito treatments last?

Treatments typically last 3 to 5 weeks depending on variables such as weather. You will find treatments most effective closest to time of application.

Do I have to be home when Rose comes out to treat the yard?

We would prefer you are home for initial treatment to discuss the application and make sure our technicians have access to the entire area. After that the treatment can be applied when you are not at home as long as we have access to the entire area and all pets are in the house.

Are Rose mosquito treatments safe?

We are concerned with the health of your family, pets, and other beneficial organisms around your yard and take every effort to keep our treatments in locations where mosquitoes, but little else (including beneficial pollinators), are affected.

How long do we have to wait to use the yard after you spray?

You can use your yard the same day, once the treatment has dried.

I’ve seen various mosquito exterminators in my neighborhood. Would there be any benefit to the entire subdivision hiring one mosquito control company to treat the entire subdivision?

In addition to significant cost savings, it is also much more effective to treat an entire area versus individual properties as we are better able to control mosquito populations that might originate from adjacent untreated lots and common bodies of water.

Should I be worried about mosquito born diseases like West Nile and Zika?

Adult female mosquitoes feed on blood to obtain a nutritious meal for egg production. Adult females will take multiple meals during their lifetime and during this process can vector a number of serious pathogenic organisms. They are responsible for transmitting diseases like West Nile, Zika, chikungunya, malaria, and many more. It’s important to remember that no single mosquito species is able to transmit all of these pathogens and that the pathogens must be present in the environment for mosquitoes to be able to spread them. One of the reasons that a Zika virus outbreak in our area isn’t anticipated is because the principle mosquito vectors of Zika are uncommon here. Click here to read "Should Michigan Residents be Concerned About the Zika Virus?", an excellent article by Dr. Kaufman, an entomologist and mosquito specialist at Michigan State University, explaining this concept to a Michigan-based audience.

Even after reducing their numbers, there are still personal protections that can be taken to protect you from mosquito bites this season including:

  • Minimize outside activity between dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Use an insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon-eucalyptus on exposed skin whenever outdoors.
  • Direct a fan towards you if you will be working or sitting in the same area for a longer period of time.  The breeze will prevent the weak-flying mosquitoes from reaching you!
