Summer is an incredible time of the year. It is the time for swimming, camping, hiking, biking and any other outdoor activity you wish to take part on. But there is one thing about the summer that we could all stand to do without, mosquitoes. Nothing ruins a wonderful summer like an itchy mosquito bite, but mosquito bites aren’t just annoying, mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases. One of the best ways to avoid mosquitoes is by turning to Armor Pest Control for insect pet control in Maryland.
We offer mosquito control to help you to enjoy your summer without having to worry about those annoying, itchy bites. Although we do offer mosquito control for adult mosquitoes, the most effective way stomp out the mosquitoes is with larvicide. Larvicide prevents mosquito development, and it is an incredibly effective method of mosquito control. Although we can help to keep the mosquitoes at bay around your home, there are certain steps that you can take to avoid being bitten when you are out and about:
- Keep the bug spray handy – If you are going outside, it is always wise to utilize a bug spray containing DEET. This is the most effective way to prevent bites (apart from staying inside).
- Go outside in the middle of the day – Morning and evenings are when mosquitoes are most active, so if you plan to participate in outdoor activities, do so after dawn and before dusk.
- Wear long sleeves and pants when possible – The heat can make this impractical, but whenever possible, wear long sleeves and pants for added protection.
