Mosquitoes Are Not Just Annoying—They Can Be Harmful to Anyone Who Comes Into Contact With Them
As a Northern Virginia homeowner, you should be able to enjoy your backyard during the warm summer months, but if your yard is infested with mosquitoes you may find it hard to relax outdoors! Don’t let pesky mosquitoes keep you inside. Mosquitoes are responsible for over one million cases of serious illness and death every year, over one thousand of those cases being in the United States. While these facts can seem daunting, there are various tried and true ways to protect you and your family from these nuisances. With the Wheat’s Mosquito Control program, you can rid your backyard of pests using safe, natural products and enjoy quality time with your family day or night in the backyard.

Integrated Pest Management
Integrated Pest Management, better known as IPM, is the best way to manage the mosquito population at your home. By regularly evaluating your landscape, you can identify mosquito breeding sites and make the necessary changes to discourage the overall mosquito population. Some of the most common breeding sites are areas of standing water, such as tires, bird baths or drains/gutters, and areas around your lawn and landscape, such as low depression areas and dense piles of brush and/or leaves. Mosquito eggs require standing water to hatch so eliminating breeding sites will prevent these pests from multiplying.
Don’t let the mosquitoes in your backyard multiply! Contact us today to get rid of them once and for all.
Once you have identified breeding sites, you can make the necessary steps to exterminate the unwanted pests. In addition to reducing breeding sites around your home and landscape, you can also apply specialized treatments to your property that will help to extinguish the mosquito population. A mosquito egg can survive for several years without hatching so applying a treatment that will take care of mosquitoes and their eggs is essential.

Dangers of Untreated Mosquito Infestation
A mosquito infested yard is more than just a nuisance—it can have a very real impact on your health.
