Why are mosquitoes a danger to your family?

When we think of dangerous animals, most people think of sharks, lions, or grizzly bears. The truth is that mosquitoes are the deadliest animals globally; killing over 1,000,000 people each year. Indeed, mosquito extermination programs in the US have significantly reduced deaths caused by mosquito-borne diseases. However, in the lower Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, CT, mosquitoes still carry West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Zika Virus, Chikungunya Virus, Dengue Virus, and Malaria as shown in the NYS Department of Health’s STATEWIDE MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASE ACTIVITY REPORT.

Why let mosquitoes or ticks ruin your backyard party or barbeque

While deaths from mosquito or tick-borne diseases are rare, they do occur. Let’s face it; there is nothing like a swarm of mosquitoes to squash an evening of outdoor fun. Ticks are just as troublesome as they deviously crawl under your clothing in search of their next meal. These pests know how to ruin an otherwise fantastic barbeque, leaving you and your guests itching, or concerned that a tick may be hiding on them. Often, it seems like the only solution is to go inside. If you want to avoid problems with mosquitoes or ticks, call Garrie Pest Control at  833-521-9737They are licensed to kill…mosquitoes and ticks.

Protect your family and eliminate disease-transmitting ticks from your property

In the Northeast, the blacklegged or deer tick is the parasite that transmits Lyme disease to humans. Other ticks such as the brown dog tick and the lone star tick also carry disease including ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, anaplasmosis, southern tick-associated rash illness, tick-borne relapsing fever, and tularemia.

Symptoms of Lyme disease

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, the infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Lyme disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings (e.g., rash), and the possibility of exposure to infected ticks.

    Should I use a DIY product or hire a professional like Garrie?

    Often, over-the-counter and do-it-yourself solutions sound like good ideas, and they do work to various degrees. Some are safe, and some could be dangerous to pets and other animals you do not want to harm. All of them require time that includes a trip to a home supply store, decisions about products and treatment, and, lastly, application. DIY products cost time (to buy and apply), and money and do not always give you the quality results you hoped they would deliver.

    Compare all aspects of DIY mosquito of tick control and Garrie wins hands down

    Although DIY techniques sound safe and more cost-effective than professionally applied methods, what matters is well, that they work.

    You want to consider how safe they are for you to apply and the potential risk to family and pets. Treating your lawn with store-bought chemicals might seem like a money saver, but there are risks. You must read all directions carefully to ensure safety. Then, there is the time and hassle to decide which DIY system you want, purchasing it, applying it, and cleaning up… People across the country, especially in the Westchester vicinity, have repeatedly said that time is their most valuable commodity. Benjamin Franklin said it best: “Lost time is never found again.” Add up the time, money, and hassles it takes to do mosquito or tick control on your own throughout the spring and summer. Then compare to Garrie’s professional solutions — the most effective, family, and pet-friendly service available. We think you will agree that your time can be better used, especially when you add in their competitive rates. Call us and let the pros at Garrie Pest Control implement a mosquito or tick control plan for your yard.

    Seven things you can do to help Garrie keep mosquitos out of your yard

    1. Get rid of standing water. Empty all flower pots, watering cans, wheel barrels. Fill any areas of your yard that puddle
    2. Clean and maintain your gutters. If you allow water to stand in your gutters, you are providing the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos
    3. Change water dishes for pets often
    4. If you have birdbaths, change the water every week to ensure mosquito larvae cannot thrive
    5. If you have ponds, introduce minnows that eat mosquito larvae
    6. Keep your grass three inches high or less. Mow regularly
    7. Keep bushes trimmed and weeds under control – during the day, mosquitos like to rest in well-shaded, low-lying vegetation with higher humidity levels Remove the moist shade, and many mosquitoes will not survive summer temperatures

    Six ways to help Garrie get rid of ticks on your property

    1. Popular Mechanics offered some excellent advice in their article “How to Get Rid of Ticks in 6 Simple Ways.” Here is the condensed list:
        1. Keep your yard clear of debris. Don’t let piles of brush, leaves, and grass buildup in your yard.
        2. Remove their preferred habitat. Ticks thrive in moist, shady areas and tend to die in sunny, dry areas. So, when possible, remove moisture from shaded areas
        3. Plant varieties of foliage and shrubs that deer do not like to eat
        4. Check places ticks love to hide such as fences, retaining walls and sheds
        5. Take good care of your pets, with tick preventatives and daily inspection of coat and skin
        6. Call the Pros. Garrie Pest Control will come to your home or business, survey the property, and develop a program to control and exterminate the ticks on the property and prevent them from returning.

    Ticks & Mosquitoes Common To The Hudson Valley & Fairfield County, CT

    AEDES MOSQUITO

    • Description: Aedes mosquitoes are slender, long-legged with wings. They are about 3mm to 6mm. Their wings and bodies are both covered in scales, and they have long piercing and sucking mouthparts. Their colors vary depending on the species of mosquito. Mosquitoes go through their life cycle (egg to adult) in about 10days under ideal conditions.
    • Habits: Most species are active between dusk and dawn, but some are also active bite during the day. They are attracted to light. During the summer, these insects become more of a problem due to their need to seek out humans for their blood meal.
    • Treatment: Source reduction through eliminating water-breeding sites is the best form of control. Light traps can be used to control the species as well. Residual spraying can further help to control the species through killing/repelling adult mosquitoes. When outdoors, products containing 10% DEET can keep you protected for approximately 90-minutes.
    • Fact: This species of mosquito is the primary cause of the Zika Virus

    BLACKLEGGED TICK (DEER/BEAR TICK)

    • Description: This tick species is 1.5mm to 3mm in length with orange-brown bodies. Their heads are dark brown. The bodies are flattened and teardrop-shaped until they are engorged from their feeding.
    • Habits: While larvae and adults typically feed off of deer and mice, the nymphs are the ones that feed off of humans. The nymph stage is when Lyme disease is spread. They climb through grass and shrub areas waiting for a host food source.
    • Treatment: Removal of garbage and pet foods that may attract larger animals or rodents. Removing high grass areas and mowing lawns helps to control the population by decreasing the areas in which ticks wait for their hosts. Pesticides, including liquid applications, can be applied to lawns and other areas of high population.
    • Expert Tip: Always wear protective clothing (light-colored long pants and longs sleeves). When removing an attached tick from yourself or pet, remove the tick as a whole. Avoid breaking the head off, leaving it attached to the skin.

    BROWN DOG TICK

    • Description: When not engorged, the adult tick is approximately 3mm in length. Both males and females are reddish to brown in color. Their bodies are flat and teardrop-shaped. When the female ticks become engorged, their bodies go from reddish/brown to a bluish/grey color. Both males and females have visible mouthparts when looked at from above.
    • Habits: More commonly found in homes where dogs are present but may be found on walls if they are infested. These ticks rarely feed off of humans but are frequently found to be the vector of Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
    • Treatment: Sanitation within the home by vacuuming areas of infestations or potential infestations should be completed. Pesticide applications for tick control should be conducted indoors and outdoors. Infested dogs should be treated by a veterinarian or the pet owner, not by the pest control technician, or by applying pesticide application to the pet.
    • Fact: An adult can live 18 months without feeding off the host source.

    CLOVER MITES

    Clover mites are not ticks and do not carry disease. However, they do invade homes in large numbers. Although they do not bite, they are certainly a nuisance pest, and Garrie can help eliminate the crawlies from your home.

    • Description: When fully grown, clover mites are 0.75mm to 0.85mm in size. They are slightly smaller than a pinhead. They are bright red to reddish-brown in color. Their front legs are about the same length as the body when fully extended.
    • Habits: They feed on grass, clovers, and other plants around the home to ingest the plant sap. They do not cause any damage to houses or foundations. Clover mites become more active in early summer and fall, especially when lawns are over-fertilized. They do not bite, nor do they cause any health-related problems.
    • Treatment: Use a sponge to clean them up to prevent red stains from occurring. Remove grass and weeds from the foundation perimeter. Make sure not to over-fertilize lawns. They tend to move through packed soil easier than loose bare soil.
    • Fun Fact: When squished, they leave a red stain because of their natural red color, not because of their blood.
