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.

Embracing the Evolution of Mosquito Control #PestControl2020!

Mosquitoes are a common problem in the lives of people of all ages. Walking outside to check the mail an individual can get nearly eaten alive by the pesky mosquitoes. Many children can not play outside without being bathed in a bug repellent just to try to avoid multiple bites all over their bodies. We need a treatment that will minimize mosquito activity without harming the non-target insects such as bees and butterflies. There is now a treatment that allows that to happen known as In2Care. This treatment is only offered by very few pest control companies and is an innovative form of treatment to reduce mosquito activity and give you your yard back.
