Are Mosquitoes Harmful?

Most of us are familiar with the annoying itch caused by a mosquito bite. But in some cases, these bites are responsible for spreading deadly diseases, such as the West Nile virus, the Zika virus, malaria, and St. Louis Encephalitis. That’s all the more reason to keep these little pests at bay.

What’s Attracting Mosquitoes Around Your Home?

  • Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water. Anything with even a small amount of standing water like tires, buckets, and birdbaths, provides the right breeding habitat for mosquitoes. 
  • Mosquitoes seek shelter wherever they can find it. Yard debris makes a good hiding spot for them. They rest underneath piles of leaves and grass clippings, and in standing grass and shrubs.
  • Water features and irrigation leaks are a mosquito’s dream. Not only do they provide standing water, but they provide a place where mosquitoes can lay their eggs and larvae can develop.

Ways to Fight the Scourge of Mosquitoes

  • Dump all standing water and prevent it from pooling again by keeping garbage cans tightly sealed, unclogging gutters, and other measures. 
  • Maintain pools and water features.
  • Repair dripping outdoor faucets or irrigation leaks.
  • Keep grasses cut and shrubs trimmed. 
  • Clear debris, especially wet vegetation.

Serving Our Community and Beyond

In many parts of the world, not everyone can afford pest control services. That’s why we at Insectek donate a portion of our profits to Malaria No More (MNM), a nonprofit organization that aims to protect people from potentially deadly malaria.

After 6 unhappy months with our previous pest control company we knew it was time to find a more reliable Company that would actually do their job. The hardest part about switching is searching for a trustworthy company. We decided to give Insectek a try for all the positive reviews. Our technician came out the very next morning. He's very professional and informative, answered every single question we had, educated us which gave us a peace of mind and kept us more at ease. From now on we will be using Insectek!

Bought a new home and needed pest control ASAP ...called around and even scheduled an appointment with another company.Professionalism, friendly, and knowledge here was the best, plus competitive pricing to boot!

Fast, friendly service -- excellent prices -- and they completely customized my pest control package to fit my needs. Made dealing with an icky insect problem as painless as it gets!

Elizabeth G.Avondale, AZ

Thorough and professional...would definitely recommend this company! Setting an appointment was easy. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to track the entry point for the ants and I have not seen any since.

We have had pest control for 4 years at our home in Cave Creek. This is the first exterminator that has actually exterminated scorpions at our home with organic solutions. They treated the perimeter of our entire yard and the only scorpions that I have seen since have been dead or running in the opposite direction. Great job. Professional service. Would highly recommend.

James H.Cave Creek, AZ

Having lived in the valley for 30 years, we have had several different pest companies. This company has by far been the best. Came out on a Saturday, with a last minute request for an appt. The technician spent an hour at our home, very meticulous, professional, and we couldn't have been more impressed with his plan of remediation. Price is fair, service is GREAT.
