From dengue fever to Zika virus, and everything in between, mosquitoes transmit more illnesses to humans than any other creature, worldwide. In the U.S. alone, the number of mosquito and tick-borne illness cases tripled between 2004-2016. Animals are at risk too. Georgia ranks #3 in the nation for heartworm infection due to mosquito bites.
Mosquito population control is a crucial component in the effort to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses. In the Southeastern United States, mosquito populations thrive during the warm months of May through October. In this peak mosquito season, it is important to have a site specific, integrated pest management (IPM) program in place designed to target mosquito populations.

Integrated pest management is a partnership. You can do your part by following these simple tips:
- Empty all standing water from toys, buckets, dog bowls, etc. Mosquitoes breed in standing water, removing standing water eliminates mosquito breeding grounds.
- Clean out clogged gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters are perfect habitats for a variety of insects and can lead to areas of standing water.
- Make sure all window screens are in good repair. Screens act as barriers against mosquitoes entering homes and other structures.
