Mosquito Control Vienna
Vienna is the last stop on the Orange line of the metro and is a small town about seventeen miles from Washington DC. With a small population of 16, 459, Vienna is a family friendly community. There are a number of attractions in and around Vienna including Tysons Corner shopping center, the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens and Great Falls park. Many of the people in this community will commute into Washington, D.C. to work. Vienna is a community with a lot to offer. One of the things that attracts many residents are the mild winters and hot summer days that make relaxing on the deck each evening enjoyable. However, the temperate climate makes Vienna a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. If your family is tired of dealing with bug spray and you find yourself spending more time indoors, then contact the experts at Mosquito Tek. The pest control experts at Mosquito Tek can exterminate mosquitoes in areas where where they breed, and apply a barrier spray to keep your yard mosquito free.
Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They BreedThe first step in truly eliminating mosquitoes in your yard is to address the areas where mosquitoes breed. Mosquito Tek technicians will apply a larvicide to standing water areas where mosquitoes may breed, and will also empty any containers that may collect water to prevent potential breeding sites. The larvicides will stop mosquito larvae from developing into adults without impacting other aquatic insects, plus it’s safe for the environment, marine life, and local wildlife.
Conventional and Organic Mosquito Treatment OptionsMosquito Tek offers two highly effective, yet safe choices for mosquito control. The conventional treatments are usually recommended where mosquito infestations are the most severe using the Talstar product line. Talstar has the strongest mosquito knockdown and will last up to twenty one days, and even though it’s extremely effective at exterminating mosquitoes, it’s still safe for most situations. The organic mosquito control treatments are done using the all natural Essentria product line. Essentria is NOP compliant, will last up to fourteen days, and is preferred by organic gardeners, restaurants, daycares, and nursing homes.
Flea and Tick Control OptionsAt Mosquito Tek, your family’s safety is important, which is there is an optional flea and tick control upgrade you can choose to include as an add-on to your mosquito treatment. This service can be performed either as an upgrade to a mosquito treatment plan or it can be purchased individually as a standalone treatment plan. Exterminating fleas and ticks is extremely important when you consider that fleas can make your animals miserable, spread illnesses like tapeworms, and ticks carry serious illnesses like Rocky Mountain spotted fever and STARI.
Mosquito Tek offers two important flea, tick, and mosquito treatment guarantees so that you can feel confident that you are getting the best customer service, and every treatment is performed using only the very best products available on the market. The Product Guarantee states that Mosquito Tek will respray at no cost to you if you see a single mosquito within 48 hours of your treatment.

Mosquito Prevention Tips
There are steps you can take to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your yard. These steps will not completely eliminate mosquitoes.
- Wear mosquito repellent: Wearing insect repellent, especially some that contains DEET, can help reduce the number of mosquitoes that bite you.
- Use the right light bulbs: Yellow bug lights and LED lights will not attract as many mosquitoes as traditional light bulbs.
- Eliminate standing water: Mosquitoes need standing water to breed and emptying any containers with standing water will give them fewer places to breed.
- Keep your lawn trimmed: Short grass and trimmed shrubberies allow your yard to dry more quickly and will make your yard less attractive to mosquitoes.
