Memorial Day marks an official start of summer with a three-day weekend and a guaranteed opportunity to be outside. It is also an opening for mosquitoes to feed, and the longer you are outside the more likely this will occur, particularly in the early mornings and evenings. 

In today world where speakers talk back and cell phones allow a constant connection to information, people are becoming less tolerant to inconvenience and mosquitoes tops the list this time of year.    People are becoming more used to hearing about Mosquito Remediation as a service they can rely on to take back their yards.

Mosquito remediation, mosquito extermination or mosquito control are all descriptions on the management of these pests.   Science has allowed us too safely and effectively reduce the mosquito population in a given area by utilizing barrier sprays that help knockdown current populations and lower future population growth.   These sprays are proven to help keep you outside without the bothersome biting.

Mosquito control (mosquito remediation) barrier sprays outperform the tradition of masking your scent that is attempted with citronella candles, garlic spray, scented oils and flowers meant to ward off mosquitoes.   By applying a barrier to your surroundings as opposed to your person (have you ever read the warning label on DEET containing lotions?) you stop the mosquitoes before they bite.

In today's environment, backyards are considered an extension of the house and people want to be comfortable wherever they are.  The familiar pain and itch after being bitten by a mosquito is an annoying part of being outside and drives many people indoors or even to apply chemicals to their person to ward off mosquitoes.

Mornings and evenings when the temperatures are cooler are those times that mosquitoes come out to pray.   Mosquitoes, due to their size (a whopping 2 millimeters), dislike the heat of the day  (the Asian tiger mosquito is the exception) and stay out of the sun or else they could bake and dry out. Mosquitoes are engineered to reproduce at large quantities, with the female being the only one that actually bites.  Females need blood to lay their eggs, your blood, and the blood from dogs, cats, any blood helps these females reproduce.  These blood meals are also what makes mosquitoes a vector of disease -  as a mosquito will feed off several hosts (you,  your friend, even the friend of the friend you don’t even know) for a blood meal increasing the chance of transmitting disease which each person bitten.How do you combat mosquitoes?  Mosquito control or in the industry mosquito remediation is how you  manage mosquitoes.

Years of remediation experience has helped Curren Environmental utilize the principals of soil an groundwater remediation to mosquito remediation. Like any successful approach you must apply the solution to appropriately to be effective.  This means applying a micro encapsulated barrier spray (low dose, think teaspoon) insecticide with copious amounts of water applied via a precision misting blower to areas where mosquitoes go and humans do not.  

The secret is in the sauce.  The micro encapsulated formula makes water wetter and allows a broad-spectrum coating to be applied to knockdown mosquitoes and provide long-term (3-week) effectiveness until the next application is performed.

Don’t be scared out of your back yard by mosquitoes this summer season.  Control and knockdown mosquitoes by using mosquito remediation.  Learn more with Curren Environmental and enjoy your yard this memorial day and throughout the summer and into the fall seasons.
