Commercial Mosquito Control



Protect Residents, Guests and Personnel Against Mosquitoes and Mosquito-Borne Diseases


Mitigate Risk


Mosquitoes spread diseases1 that may affect your business by infecting residents, guests and personnel. Use effective mosquito control products to help prevent these pests and the diseases they carry, including the Zika and West Nile viruses.

Control


Target and kill mosquitoes on your property or job site. 

  • • Fog or spray as needed and directed 
  • • Set mosquito control traps
  • • Add larvicides or insecticides to water fixtures 
  • • Install bug zappers where possible


Always check packaging to ensure fish, birds and wildlife can survive in the same water before adding chemicals.

  • • Cut back vegetation around bodies of water 
  • • Fill in ruts and other areas that hold water 
  • • Cut drain holes in equipment and containers that cannot be covered or removed
  • • Cover, turn over or remove equipment and fixtures that collect water 
  • • Set up deterrents like citronellas and circulation fans 
  • • Install pond pumps to limit standing water 
  • • Install closed screens on doors and windows
