Houston Mosquito Control
The #1 Summer Pest
Whether you’re trying to host a barbeque, mow the lawn or just sit on the porch and enjoy the sunset, nothing ruins it faster than an onslaught of mosquitoes.
Supermarket shelves are crowded with remedies that include body spray, citronella candles, and high-frequency transmitters. Sometimes, these products work, but many times, they do not. Soon you’ll find you need a more permanent solution.
If you want to ensure that the summertime is no longer full of itching and cursing, look no further than BUGCO® Pest Control for the most comprehensive and effective mosquito control in Houston.
We’re all familiar with the annoyance and discomfort that mosquitoes cause. They fly around our heads, whine in our ears, and leave behind itchy bites that can last for days. But mosquitoes are more than just a major nuisance; they also can pose serious health risks to you and your family.
For example, an allergy can make mosquito bites go beyond annoying to downright painful or even dangerous. And West Nile, a potentially severe viral infection, is found in mosquitoes in the Metro Houston area every year. Other diseases carried by mosquitoes are Zika, Dengue Fever, and Chikungunya. Although these illnesses are relatively rare, mosquitoes are their primary form of transmission, so the best protection against them is to control the mosquito population.
As with all of our services, our mosquito control begins with an inspection of your property. This helps us determine the overall scope of activity and check for any mosquito breeding sites. Believe it or not, even a capful of water can be enough for mosquitoes to reproduce!
We’ll then design an effective, affordable control strategy tailored specifically for you, using a combination of available treatments. These may include automated or remote-controlled fogging systems or larvicide for use in standing water, such as ponds. We also can create specialized traps such as the In2Care mosquito trap and other personalized solutions.
For broad coverage areas, we provide truck-mounted mosquito fogging services throughout the Houston area. This is appropriate in situations such as homeowners’ associations and community associations. Our trucks usually operate between midnight and 2 AM, to eliminate the most mosquitoes while residents are indoors, and beneficial insects are not active. Since mosquito populations can rebound quickly, this service is most effective if repeated once or twice a week.
