Take Control of Mosquito Infestation and Take Your Yard Back

The In2care mosquito trapping system is an innovative way to take control of the never-ending mosquito issue that people all around the world struggle with. Instead of trapping the adult mosquitos, like many other mosquito traps, it traps the larva inside. However, it allows the adult mosquitos to leave the trap and find other standing water that is present all around your house. The adult mosquito will do a lot of the work for you by spreading the 2 active ingredients. The fungal spore will kill her in 7-10 days and the larvicide will contaminate any place the mosquito lands to breed and will go on to affect any other mosquito that lands in that same water. Welcome to the evolution of mosquito control and call us today to get your In2care system!

There have been multiple cases of mosquitos testing positive for West Nile Virus in Dallas and the surrounding areas. DCHHS confirmed positive samples in University Park and Desoto, in the 75225 and 75115 ZIP codes. So far this year, DCHHS has confirmed 33 positive samples of West Nile virus in mosquitoes and one human case.  The human case was confirmed earlier this week in Irving where a patient in the 75061 ZIP code contracted the disease. Protecting your home and family from mosquitos is very important not only because the bites are a nuisance but because the diseases that mosquitos can carry can be very serious.

How to Protect Yourself from Mosquito Bites

  • Dress in long sleeves, pants when outside: For extra protection, spray thin clothing with repellent.
  • DEET: Make sure this ingredient is in your insect repellent.
  • Drain standing water in your yard and neighborhood: Mosquitoes can develop in any water stagnant for more than three days.

It has been recommended in the past that to avoid mosquito bites you should avoid being outdoors during Dusk and Dawn. While this is true for mosquitoes that commonly carry the West Nile virus, other types of mosquitoes that are more likely to carry Zika, dengue and chikungunya are active during the day. When outdoors, no matter what time of day, adjust your dress accordingly and wear insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus as your first line of defense against insect bites.

Things That Go Bump In The Night

Honey...Wake up!!!.... Did you hear that

Noises coming from your walls or attic could be from a caused by a lot of things besides critters. For example a tree limb scrapping the roof or the side of the house, a squeaky turbine vent on the roof, gurgling drains, creaking roof joist, wires and pipes shifting in the walls or even the normal settling house sounds can be amplified at 3:00 in the morning when your wide awake lying in bed wondering  

What in the world was that ?

If you are woke up in the wee hours by unusual noises its important to pay close attention to exactly where and when and what kind of noises your hearing. It's usually not too hard to tell if the noises are coming from a living thing as opposed to house noises. If the noises your hearing are from animals in the house paying close attention may give you important clues to what your dealing with.                                                

Critters large and small just love to live in the protection of the walls and attics of our homes, But attics are the favorite spot for wild animals. It's very common to have wild animals move into the attic of our home causing damage, introducing parasites and spreading disease
