  • Why are pests such a constant issue?
    No matter what time of year it may be, you could experience pests. While there are many differences among the common Denver pests, there are some similarities. For starters, most pests seek shelter in the winter, and during the warmer weather, they’re motivated to come indoors in search of food or water. Many pests, like rodents, cockroaches, and ants, are attracted to your food scraps. Try as you might limit these scraps, there is no way to guarantee that no crumbs are hiding behind your refrigerator or in a corner. Even when stored in sealed containers, the food in your pantry could still be food for pests. Mice and rats can chew through tough materials. Regardless of the weather, your home could be appealing to pests. Without prevention, you could experience constant struggles against invaders.
  • Should I take pest control matters into my own hands?
    To save money, many property owners decide to handle pest problems on their own. They often wait until they see signs of local pests and then take action. Unfortunately, this technique fails. By the time you notice pests in your home, it’s too late. Consider the example of a termite infestation. When you see signs of termites, significant damage has been done. You could have thousands of dollars in property damage, and it’s too late to undo that destruction. Another issue is the magnitude of the problem. If you wait until a pest takes up residence and begins to reproduce in your home, removing the pests will be an extraordinary feat. Because many local pests have rapid breeding cycles, they could be dispersed throughout your property. Finally, most DIY attempts at pest prevention and elimination end in failure. It takes training and resources to be able to prevent and eliminate pests. Without experience in the pest control industry, you can’t know how to safely or effectively handle pests.

  • Why do mosquitos bite you?
    Female mosquitoes bite humans to drink your blood. They do this because that’s how they get the nutrients they need to stay alive.
  • Is it bad if a mosquito bites you?
    It’s both annoying and potentially bad. Every single person who gets bitten by a mosquito will experience an itchy welt they can’t help but want to scratch. However, mosquitoes carry pathogens that lead to the transmission of dangerous diseases and even harmful allergic reactions for some people.
  • How many times will one mosquito bite you?
    Mosquitoes have no limit to the number of times they will bite you except until they’re full. Only when full will they stop.
  • Can a mosquito bite through clothing?
    Only if the clothing is thin enough for them to bite through. Material like jeans or thick shirts is much more difficult for them to bite through than other thinner materials.
  • What smells do mosquitos hate?
    They hate smelling citronella, which is why so many people try using tiki torches to keep them away. Mosquitoes also dislike cedarwood, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemongrass.
  • How do I stop getting bitten by mosquitoes?
    There are two ways. The first is to invest in personal sprays. This allows you to wait long enough to work with a professional pest control company that specializes in mosquito control, which is the second way.
  • Are mosquitoes dangerous?
    As previously stated, mosquitoes are considered to be the most dangerous animals in the world. That is because they are known to spread a vast array of bloodborne diseases as they feed on different animals and people. Although here in the United States, mosquitoes are not as dangerous as they are in developing countries, there are still instances of mosquitoes transmitting diseases here. Some of the diseases that mosquitoes have been known to transmit include encephalitis, malaria, dengue, Zika virus, West Nile virus, and yellow fever. So, although the risk may not be as great here in the U.S. as in developing countries, you are still potentially at risk. This is why you should take steps to limit the number of mosquitoes around your yard.
