Of all the insects on earth, mosquitoes may very well pose the greatest threat to human health. There are a number of diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, such as malaria, west nile virus, yellow fever, filariasis, dengue fever, and encephalitis, all of which remain a serious threat to people everywhere. Even as a nuisance biter, they can have a major negative impact on a local economy by inhibiting recreational or work environments.

Mosquito prevention and elimination takes a lot of effort and always requires a trained eye. Connor’s uses a number of treatments proven to control existing mosquitoes as well as prevent future ones.
Preventing mosquitoes & mosquito bites
The easiest first step toward preventing mosquitoes from breeding is to eliminate any and all standing water sources within or around your property. Other prevention tips include making sure your windows and doors are properly sealed to keep mosquitoes out of the home, planting lavender or lemongrass to naturally prevent them, and cutting lawns and shrubbery to remove their hiding places. To ward off a mosquito bite, avoid going outside at dusk without covered clothing and insect repellent.
