Pest Control Services

START HERE

When you call Pest Arrest for mosquito control, a trained technician treats your yard with an effective barrier spray that eliminates biters for up to 30 days. Here are some details on our mosquito control service:

    • During Treatment: Using a backpack sprayer designed for precise application, your technician targets shrubs and plants with a barrier spray and an insect growth regulator (IGR). This kills mosquitoes on contact and bonds to foliage, where it acts as a mosquito repellent for weeks to come. Within 30 to 45 minutes of spraying, your yard is ready for family and pets to come out and play. We will also inspect your property for active larvae populations and treat them accordingly. Your technician will help you identify potential mosquito breeding grounds in your yard and recommend ways to eliminate standing water. Our insect control expert will leave notes in the form of a door hanger after each service.
    • Follow Up: Our trained technician will return each month to treat your yard to ensure that the barrier created stays strong so that new mosquitoes don’t start breeding.
    • Safe and Effective: All of the barrier spray chemicals we use are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are insecticides derived from a naturally occurring compound found in the chrysanthemum plant called pyrethrum. The standard barrier spray treatment provides effective insect control on other pests such as fleas, ticks, and some flies.
    • Convenient: All mosquito control services can be scheduled at your convenience, whether you are at home or not. As long as your property is accessible, you can trust Pest Arrest to let you know your yard has been treated.

Zika Virus FAQs

mosquito

What is Zika Virus Disease and What Are Its Symptoms?

Zika Virus Disease is caused by the Zika virus that is spread to people, primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito of the Aedes species. Most people infected with Zika won’t show any symptoms, or may show very mild ones such as fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis. Symptoms typically begin two to seven days after being bitten by an infected mosquito and can last for up to a week. A blood or urine test can confirm a Zika infection, so talk to your doctor if you have questions or concerns.

How is Zika Transmitted?

Zika is primarily transmitted through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, moving from person to person, spreading the virus among humans. It can be transmitted from a pregnant mother to her baby during pregnancy, resulting in severe birth defects such as microcephaly and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Zika is also sexually transmittable from an infected male to his partner during unprotected sex.

Who Is At Risk of Infection?

More than 1,600 cases of Zika have been reported in 47 states, most of them being travel-related. The first likely locally-transmitted cases were reported in Florida in late July, and Zika will likely continue its spread in the United States. For more information on areas with Zika, please visit the CDC’s website.

What Is the Treatment for Zika?

There is no vaccine or specific medicine to treat Zika virus. See your doctor immediately if you feel you’ve contracted the disease. Treatment typically consists of managing the symptoms, which means getting plenty of rest, drinking TONS of fluids, and taking medications like acetaminophen (Tylenol) and paracetamol.

Where is Zika Virus Located?

Zika has been detected in 47 states. As of July 20, 2016, more than 1,400 cases have been confirmed in the United States, all of which were acquired abroad. With millions of cases reported in South and Central America, the World Health Organization has declared a public health emergency, urging travelers destined for affected countries to postpone or cancel their plans.

What Can I Do to Prevent It?

While there is no cure for the Zika virus, avoiding mosquitoes is the best course of action for a strong defense. Here are some tips for reducing the amount of mosquitos in your area:

  • Eliminate any sources of standing water, including flowerpots, tires, or children’s toys
  • Clear drains and gutters
  • Watch for low areas under decks or in your yard where rainwater may collect
  • Remove accumulating garbage or extra yard-clippings
  • Screen windows and doors
  • Use mosquito repellant and reapply as directed and wear protective clothing such as long pants and long sleeves
  • Limit daytime outdoor exposure (mosquitoes that spread Zika virus bite mostly during the daytime)
  • Hire professional pest control services for mosquito control
