Mosquito Control Reston
Reston, Virginia is a planned community that was created in the 1960s. With a population of 58,404, it offers a variety of different housing opportunities (City-Data.com). Since the community was planned there are a number of trails throughout the city to make it easy to bike or walk to the city center. In 2017, Money Magazine listed Reston as 29th in the Best Places to Live in America. The planned community and covenants that do not allow chain stores to be in the city give Reston a unique atmosphere.
Reston is also home to Lake Fairfax Park, which offers boating and hiking opportunities. There are also many cultural opportunities in the community and surrounding areas. Reston is just over twenty miles from Washington D.C. and many residents will commute into work. The community is planned to preserve nature and provide a relaxing wooded community. The cool and usually mild winters and the hot humid summers make Reston a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. If you find that mosquitoes are keeping you inside during the summer evenings, then Mosquito Tek can help you enjoy your time outside again.
Mosquito-Borne Diseases and How to Prevent your Family From Getting Them
Mosquitoes are known carriers for both the Zika virus and the West Nile virus. If you think about how great Reston is to raise a family, you will want to take the steps necessary to protect your family from the devastating effects of these illnesses. Fortunately, there are defensive steps that you can take to prevent your family from being bitten by mosquitoes. A mosquito control expert, like those at Mosquito Tek, can apply a mosquito barrier treatment that will eliminate mosquitoes around your property. Mosquito Tek is located near Reston and can send a technician to evaluate your property. They can identify the areas where mosquitoes live and breed and apply a treatment that will kill the adult mosquitoes and stop the larvae and eggs from developing into adults, so the mosquitoes do not return.
Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
Addressing the mosquito problem using larvicide will stop the mosquitoes from breeding. While you can kill adult mosquitoes, if you do not address the areas where mosquitoes lay their eggs then you will have a continuous mosquito problem. Our technician will inspect your property for breeding sites, and eliminate any standing water in containers and apply larvicide to standing water. This larvicide will not harm other aquatic insects.
Conventional and Organic Treatment Options
Mosquito Tek offers a conventional barrier spray that will last up to twenty-one days. We use the Talstar product line, which has been voted the best conventional product on the market for the last five years.
