As you may already know, at Mr. Mister, we offer several different methods, services, and techniques for controlling mosquitoes effectively in your Atlanta yard and beyond.
With one mission in mind — which is to make Atlanta mosquito-free — our company has created some of the most effective mosquito control solutions that are both safe and convenient for homeowners and their families.
With so many options for at-home mosquito control, however, you’ll have to decide which solution is right for you and your home. After all, the goal is to rid your property of disease carrying mosquitoes who are capable of spreading numerous illnesses such as West Nile, dengue fever, and (most recently) Zika Virus.
At Mr. Mister, our solutions are varied in order to meet the needs and budget of everyone of our customers. We want to be able to provide the best solution for mosquito control that works perfectly within your schedule and takes the hassle of trying to control mosquitoes yourself off of your plate.
In order to find the best solution for you, you first need to understand why mosquito control is so important, especially with recent outbreaks of mosquito bourne illnesses in the United States and beyond.
Why Opt For Professional Mosquito Control?
Beyond the annoyance mosquitoes can be, these pests are known to carry a myriad of different diseases and illnesses. Some of which can be dangerous and (in some cases) fatal, which is why mosquitoes are known as the most dangerous animals in the world.
These diseases include West Nile, Zika Virus, and dengue fever, just to name a few. The most recent mosquito-borne illness is Zika, which (when transmitted from a mosquito bite) can lead to flu-like symptoms and can even cause a birth defect, making this illness extremely dangerous for pregnant mothers.
While Zika hasn’t been found in the entire United States, there have been numerous cases in the South and parts of the South East, making Atlanta a prime target for a Zika outbreak. What makes this part of the country so conducive to Zika, and mosquito activity, in general, is our warm and wet climate which typically continues throughout the year.
Sadly, most Americans either aren’t aware of the dangers mosquitoes pose, or simply don’t think much of these pests, which leads many to simply do nothing or opt for cheap mosquito repellents from their local box store.
However, these solutions are ineffective, and typically laden with a chemical called DEET, which can cause skin rashes if left on the skin for a long period of time. Even additional mosquito control methods, such as citronella candles are overall useless, as the scent from these candles has a short shelf life, and they do not have the ability to kill off mosquito larvae like professional mosquito control solutions can.
This means, while you may be repelling adult mosquitoes, they will still have the chance to breed nearby, and you will eventually begin to see another swarm of these pests around your yard for the entire season.
In order to effectively control mosquitoes around your property, you will need to opt for a serious mosquito control solution, such as the wide range of solutions we offer at Mr. Mister. As we mentioned before, however, not every solution is right for you and your home. Let’s explore all of the mosquito control techniques we offer, in order to assist you in deciding what solution will work best:
Automatic Mosquito Misting Systems For Your Yard
One of our most popular mosquito control solutions — mainly due to their convenience and constant protection — is our automatic mosquito misting systems.
These systems utilize specially designed nozzles, which disperse our biodegradable Mr. Mister mosquito misting solution — this spray is used in both of our main mosquito control methods — on a daily basis. The best part about having a mosquito misting system installed in your yard, is the fact that you never have to worry about your property being protected.
Because your yard is treated daily — at dawn, in the afternoon, and at dusk; when mosquitoes are most active — you will be consistently creating a mosquito-free barrier around your yard, allowing you and your family to enjoy the outdoors, worry-free of disease-carrying mosquitoes.
What’s more? You don’t have to worry about our automatic systems interfering with your existing landscaping, as every system is specially designed to be discreetly hidden along your fence and landscaping, You can even opt to have your yard treated at different times each day, through the use of a remote control, which is included with every automatic mosquito misting system we install.
All in all, if you want constant protection from mosquitoes coupled with the convenience of an automatic system, then this solution is ideal for you and your property.
ClearZone Mosquito Misting Service
If you’re looking for a more personal approach to mosquito control, with guidance from a real life mosquito control professional, then we recommend opting for our ClearZone Mosquito Misting Service.
ClearZone sends a mosquito control expert to your home on a consistent basis, who will treat your entire yard with our biodegradable mosquito misting spray.
While an automatic mosquito control system is incredible for convenience, ClearZone can be a more personalized solution for you and your family, as you’ll be able to decide what dates and times you want your ClearZone treatments to take place. You can even have our experts come out to treat your yard when you’re not at home.
Another benefit of opting for ClearZone is the fact that you’ll be able to receive expert mosquito control guidance from a Mr. Mister technician. Our experts are more than willing to answer any questions you may have regarding mosquito control methods, including additional techniques you can use to further prevent mosquitoes around your property and in your neighborhood.
Professional Gutter Cleaning
As an additional service, Mr. Mister also provides professional gutter cleaning services for Atlanta residents and surrounding neighborhoods.
Gutter cleaning, surprisingly enough, is an important aspect of keeping mosquitoes away from your property, as gutters that are improperly maintained can build up excess rain water. Why is this a problem?
Standing water is the ideal breeding ground for female mosquitoes — which are, in fact, the only types of mosquitoes that can bite you. Once a mosquito has sucked your blood, it uses it as protein to grow their larvae, which are then dispersed into a body of standing water, where they then hatch and become a horde of new mosquitoes. This cycle will go on forever, unless you’re diligent about implementing the proper mosquito control measures in addition to proper mosquito prevention techniques.
One of the most important techniques for preventing mosquitoes from breeding is by keeping your gutters clean regularly. However, gutter cleaning is a dirty, time-consuming, and dangerous job, as it typically requires standing on a tall ladder, which could lead to falls and serious injury.
This is why it’s best to leave gutter cleaning to the professionals, and is a huge reason why we, here at Mr. Mister, provide gutter cleaning as an additional service for our customers in tandem with one of our main mosquito control solutions.
Why Is Mr. Mister So Effective At Controlling Mosquitoes?
If you’ve never tried to implement professional mosquito control techniques in your yard before, then you’re likely unaware of the effectiveness the proper mosquito control solution can provide.
At Mr. Mister, our patented mosquito control spray has been specially developed to not only eliminate mosquitoes that are already bothering you today, but to keep mosquitoes from ever being a problem in the future as well.
Once dispersed in your yard, our mosquito misting spray lands on foliage and the underside of your outdoor furniture; once a wandering mosquito comes into contact with this spray it dies, along with any larvae it may be carrying. This is why Mr. Mister is unlike any mosquito control solution on the market, as our solutions work at eliminating mosquitoes now and keeping them away, creating a mosquito-free zone in your yard to allow you to enjoy the outdoors with your pets and family throughout the season and beyond.
