We all enjoy the benefits rain brings ... greener grass, more beautiful shrubbery and showy flowers. Most of us also enjoy warm weather. Unfortunately warm wet weather in North Carolina during spring, summer and fall also brings mosquitoes with it. And mosquitoes bring with them some serious problems. According to the North Carolina Mosquito & Vector Control Association, one of the key problems mosquitoes bring with them is disease. And the disease that most people are worried about today is the Zika virus. Since there is no vaccine or medication to prevent or treat Zika virus infections it is important that mosquito control be implemented before they can infect humans. Of course there are other diseases that mosquitoes spread as well. These include:
You wouldn't wish these diseases on anyone. Mosquito control by Mosquito Tek is the most effective way to prevent these dangerous diseases from spreading.

As you can tell, none of the above diseases or conditions are pleasant. Mosquito Tek is

Ineffective Do-It-Yourself solutions
One of the biggest problems with DIY pest control solutions is that people don't read the labels. When people don't read labels improper application of the product occurs and may actually create environmental or personal hazards. Without the help of a pro, people have accidentally started fires, contaminated property and/or water, and even poisoned pets. Never mind that many over-the-counter products are ineffective and can even make the problem worse.
Example 1: If you use pesticides on ants, the live ants may send a distress signal back to the colony. The ants then spread into satellite
colonies making the original problem worse.
Example 2: Researchers at Ohio State University recently conducted a study on 'bug bomb' products. They used 5 different bed bug populations
and they found that bug bombs were virtually useless on bed bugs that live in people's homes.
Example 3: According to AMCA (American Mosquito Control Association), at least 10
studies in the past 15 years have unanimously denounced ultrasonic devices as having no repellency value.
Example 4: According to the AMCA (American Mosquito Control Association) 'bug-zappers' , in various studies have been shown to have no significant impact on the number of mosquitoes found in yards.
