Our Mosquito and Tick Reduction Program lets you reclaim your backyard from the dangers of mosquitoes and ticks. Protect your yard, and your family, with Cowleys' thorough, safe, and effective treatments.
Mosquito & Tick Reduction Program includes:
Mosquitoes have the capability to transmit viral diseases. Cowleys Pest Services' Mosquito & Tick Reduction Program reduces the population of mosquitoes and their larvae by specifically treating areas throughout your property where mosquitoes are likely to breed, and by removing the presence of standing water.
Application: Our licensed technicians apply an adulticide and insect growth regulator treatment to (non-flowering) vegetation areas surrounding your home to target daytime resting adults. Our Mist-Blower Treatment disperses small micro-droplets into a stream of air to maximize coverage and adhesion to plants. Porch/garage overhangs and dark areas beneath decks are treated as well.
We empty any containers and/or receptacles, toys, and furniture to eliminate standing water. We use larvicide granules in catch basins and leader drains as further prevention.
Effective Control: Once treated areas dry, our Mosquito & Tick Reduction treatment will knock down and kill adult mosquitoes.
Ticks carry and transmit infectious pathogens (bacteria) into other living organisms. Cowleys' Mosquito & Tick Reduction Program minimizes the likelihood of tick entry into your yard by specifically treating the areas throughout your property known to harbor ticks.
Application: We dispense a low-grade adulticide through our Mist-Blower Treatment to tumble leaf litter and coat all sides of leaves and exposed dirt to control ticks. The air stream creates movement of leaves and small branches to ensure coverage of the entire surface area. Treatment is expanded beneath decks and structural overhangs.
The product dries much faster and is therefore more effective than “power spraying” or liquid backpack spraying which soaks surfaces. We apply low-grade granules to leaf litter beds and wooded areas within 5-10 feet of grass for greater protection.
Effective Control: Treated leaf litter and brush areas see reduction and eradication of ticks.
