With Missouri being home to about 50 different species of mosquitos alone, combined with hot temps and all the rain we’ve been getting, mosquitoes have the perfect environment to multiply. Then add ticks into the mixture? No thank you! A pest control service is a safe option for you and your family. Both mosquitos and ticks can spread serious illnesses and diseases when they bite you, in fact, the mosquito was ranked the deadliest animal in the world according to the British Broadcasting Service (BBC). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the primary illness associated with mosquito bites in Missouri is West Nile Virus. Hiring a pest control service to treat your yard can help prevent these bugs from getting to your family.

Some steps you can take at home to combat mosquitoes before calling a pest control service are:

  • Eliminate standing water in places where it doesn’t belong, such as inside old tires.
  • Change the water in bird baths and unfiltered pools at least once a week.
  • Consider introducing some mosquito-eating fish, such as green sunfish in your pond.
  • Make sure your window screens are in good condition, with no holes or gaps.

The two most common ticks in Missouri are the lone star tick and the American dog tick. There are many other species of ticks in Missouri, but people encounter them much less frequently. As with mosquitoes, ticks can spread illness. Rocky Mountain spotted fever is a tick-borne illness that often begins with a rash on the wrists and ankles, which then spreads over the body. Lyme disease is another widely known tick-borne illness which can be devastating to your health. Removing ticks immediately can help prevent infection! A pest control service can help eliminate ticks from your property.
