Mosquitoes are one of the most common and annoying pests that can ruin the time you spend outdoors in Nebraska. Not only do they cause itchy and irritating bites, but they can also transmit harmful diseases like Zika virus, West Nile virus, and Malaria. While there are several DIY mosquito control methods available, hiring a professional mosquito control service is the best option for several reasons. First, professionals have extensive experience providing mosquito control and so they know how much pesticide to apply and where to apply it. What’s more, professionals will use a pesticide that has been proven to work, and they will apply it with the most cutting-edge tools and equipment. Lastly, a professional mosquito control service will provide necessary follow-up visits to ensure that your property remains well-protected from mosquitoes throughout the entire season.

1. Professional pest control technicians will know what areas to target.

One of the benefits of hiring professional pest control technicians to apply mosquito control treatments on your property is that they will know what areas to target. They know how to identify mosquito breeding sites—which are often difficult to detect—and they can apply treatments in a manner that is both safe and effective. If you try to apply pesticide treatments yourself, you could easily miss harborage areas and still be left with a mosquito problem.

Mosquitoes like to gather in areas with standing water like ponds, bird baths, tires, gutters, and more.

2. Professionals use products that are proven to work and they have the right tools to apply them.

Some people try to tackle their mosquito problems on their own because they think that this will be less expensive than hiring a professional company. Unfortunately, they often spend money on a variety of store-bought products that might work for a few days, or maybe not work at all. In the end, they’re out the money they spent on these products and they’re still getting bitten up when trying to enjoy an evening outside.

Professionals will use products that have been proven to work. They’ll also use top-of-the-line equipment such as a backpack fogger to effectively apply the product in all the necessary places. You likely don't have the right equipment to properly apply the mosquito control treatments, so even if you do manage to find an effective treatment, it won't be very effective if it's not applied correctly.

3. Most professional mosquito control services include multiple treatments.

Mosquitoes are incredibly resilient. That means it will take more than one treatment to keep them at bay for the entire season. When you sign up for a professional mosquito control service, professionals will come out to your property multiple times throughout the mosquito season to apply a new treatment before the previous treatment wears off. These follow-ups are convenient, as most homeowners and business owners don’t have the time or energy to apply ongoing treatments. Moreover, you won't even have to think about when to perform the treatments because the professionals will automatically come out when it's time to reapply them.
