Mosquitoes & Midges
Keep Mosquitoes and Midges at bay
Mosquitoes spread diseases like Malaria, Ross River Fever, Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever, this makes them the most dangerous creature on Earth. Zika Virus is also transmitted to humans by Mosquitoes. For most of us they are just a relentless pain, mozzie coils, citronella sticks and insect repellents work so long as you don’t mind the smoke and pungent odour with your BBQ sausages!
Our sub-tropical climate creates the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes and midges. They are incredibly adaptable creatures and thrive in any watery environment from canals and swamps right through to our own back gardens in low lying areas, pot plant saucers, bird baths, rain water tanks and roof gutters.
Female mosquitoes require a protein meal of blood before producing eggs, which are usually laid on the surface of water, they go through several stages of development which is completed within a week, longer depending on the weather. Adult males are short lived whereas females live for several weeks and are the blood suckers of the species, the males feed mostly off plant secretions.
Treatment of Mosquitoes and Midges
On top of a normal pest treatment, we offer a misting treatment for mozzies and midges. We extensively mist all problematic areas to your home and surrounding areas including;
- Complete exterior of your home including under eves, decks and patios
- Wet or low lying areas for breeding
We cannot protect against mosquitoes and midges flying into your garden however our misting treatment targets the areas they land and rest coming into contact with the chemical, getting to them before they get you! Extensive misting carried out around your home creates an interception zone to deter flying mozzies invading your sacred territory.
