What You Need To Know About Mosquito Elimination
Let's be real, mosquitoes aren't into your BBQ, they're after something more fundamental: warmth and moisture. Your yard might be their five-star resort if it has any standing water (think kiddie pools, birdbaths, or even your dog's water bowl) or if you live near a creek or river.
The moisture serves as an ideal breeding ground for them. Not to mention, the heat from our southern sun is like a welcome mat. So, they're not intentionally trying to ruin your outdoor fun, they're just seeking their ideal spot!
You'd think mosquitoes would at least have the decency to bring a nice bottle of wine when they bite, but no, they come bearing less pleasant gifts. When these little party crashers take a sip, they might transmit a variety of unpleasant diseases, some of which include the infamous Zika virus, West Nile virus, and Chikungunya virus. And let's not forget about dengue and malaria.
Although most folks might not fall ill after a mosquito's nibble, some can experience mild to severe symptoms, and in rare instances, these diseases could even be life-threatening. So, no thank you, mosquitoes, we'd rather not accept your gifts.
Mosquitoes are annoying, yes, but it might surprise you that they're not just out there making cookouts unbearable. Despite their penchant for turning humans into pin cushions, they do serve a few beneficial roles in the ecosystem.
For starters, they're quite the help in managing other insect populations. They also moonlight as pollinators, spreading a little plant love around as they feed. But the biggest beneficiaries of their existence are likely the fish, frogs, and birds who dine on mosquito larvae. So, mosquitoes - still annoying, but with a few redeeming qualities.
Surely mosquitoes wouldn't dare to set up a nursery inside your home? Well, unfortunately, if you've got standing water indoors, they might just start browsing baby names. These little troublemakers don't need a pond or lake.
Even a small container holding water, like a forgotten dog bowl or that decorative vase in your living room, could be enough for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Once hatched, the larvae develop into adults ready to continue the cycle. So, keep an eye out for standing water indoors. Remember, mosquitoes are the uninvited guests who don't know when to leave!

The staff was very friendly, professional and not pushy at all about the service. I would hire them in the future.
I am a long time customer--always satisfied with the service. Last time however, there were still a few spiderwebs on the house-- I called and they sent someone out right away for a thorough redo. I am still a very satisfied customer. Great customer service from office to service staff.
Great! Everyone was considerate of my time and inconvenience. Also, every single person I spoke to or met was professional, courteous and friendly.
We've used Black Pest for the past 16yrs. Started with our first home and we've continued to use them for each home after moving twice. Always professional, easy to work with, their treatments are effective and in the few times we've needed additional treatments between scheduled visits, they've come out at no additional charge. Have recommended to many neighbors and friends who have same experience.
I’ve used Black Pest for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. They even respond when I call about seeing a bug or two in my house.
