Collier Pest Control is your Southwest Florida Pest Control Authority including Mosquitoes. Here in Southwest Florida, Mosquitoes are a part of our life. Those of us who have been here for a long time remember how bad Mosquitoes can really be without proper controls.

There are 2,500 different species of Mosquitoes throughout the world, about 200 species in the United States, and 76 types in Florida breeding in salt and fresh water marshes, lakes, canals, ponds, and any place water will stand. One of the great mysteries of nature is that only the female Mosquitoes will bite you, the male Mosquito feeds only on plant nectar and honey dew off of plants.

It wasn’t until local governments created Mosquito control programs, that people enjoyed vacationing in Florida. Most of Florida was considered unbearable as little as 50 years ago. Biting Mosquitoes were not the only reason not to be in Florida. Diseases in epidemic proportions were present here in Florida until the early 1900’s. The Mosquito can transmit a number of diseases such as; malaria, west Nile virus, yellow fever, dengue, encephalitis, and heart worms in animals. Most of these are still present here in Florida today, but not publicized in the news. Mosquitoes cause more human suffering than any other organism.

Mosquitoes breed in standing water and rest most of their time on plant foliage. They are attracted to carbon dioxide, octenol, lactic, light, heat, and an array of sounds.

Knowing the characteristics of the Mosquito gives us an advantage to control and eliminate unwanted Mosquitoes from our environment. Collier Pest Control has three ways to combating the invasion of Mosquitoes.

First, Collier Pest Control can install Mosquito Trapping Equipment that attracts Mosquitoes and other flying insects with lactic, light, heat, and sound. This amazing economical machine will draw and control most flying insects in an area of up to one acre.

Second, Collier Pest Control can eliminate resting Mosquitoes and flying insects on all your plants and foliage with our Flying Insect Foliage Treatment. This treatment places a residual material on all your plants, bushes, and lawn that will kill most flying insects that land or rest on them for a period of up to 3 months.

Third, Collier Pest Control can stop unwanted Mosquitoes before they become adults. Collier Pest Control can treat any small ponds, lakes, ditches, drainage areas, or any place standing water accumulates. We can treat these areas with a growth regulator that will stop the immature Mosquitoes from developing into an adult.
