Mask. Repel. Kill. While the technology behind our propriety spray is highly sophisticated, our approach to mosquito spraying is simple. Our spray “masks” CO2, which while vital for humans and plants to live, is precisely what attracts mosquitos and other insects. Second, the spray builds an invisible vertical barrier to deters mosquitos from encroaching into our personal spaces. Third, it immediately kills mosquitos that have already invaded. Each spraying builds up these layers overtime, transforming your yard or property into a virtual mosquito fortress. Your Mosquito Shield Representative near Menasha can devise a timetable for spraying that works for your schedule.
Facts about Mosquitos
An adult Mosquito lives between 4 to 8 weeks after a brief 5 – 14 day “aquatic” period. Starting as an egg, then becoming larvae, then pupae the adult mosquito emerges as the pupa flats on surface water. As long as the temperatures remain above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, mosquitos will survive in the open. But don’t let the disappearance of mosquitos fool you. Your mosquito problem may still exist unbeknownst to you. Some mosquito species can lay eggs that survive the cold to then hatch in the spring. Mosquito Shield’s team in Menasha and spray technology will mitigate mosquitos and their origins for a comprehensive defense.
Aside from the inconveniences posed by Mosquitos, they do pose serious health risks. The most known diseases are West Nile Virus, Heartworm and Zika Virus.
While the Zika Virus has made headlines in recent years, there have been no reported cases in the United States.
From 1999 to 2009 a number of cases of West Nile Virus were reported in the continental US, however those cases have subsided. Heartworm, however, remains one of the more likely conditions to be transmitted by Mosquitos.
According to the FDA, heartworm is most common in humans along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts up to New Jersey, however cases have been reported in dogs in all 50 states. Mosquitos are the “intermediate host” while dogs are the “definitive host” meaning that worms live inside a mosquito for a period in order to become “infective.” The name heartworm is derived from the fact that worms live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of the infected aninal.
We all have enough to worry about. If you have pets, this can be a risk and an essential reason to contact your Mosquito Shield rep in Menasha to put your mind at ease.
