The rains we’ve experienced in the Philadelphia region is expected to bring an increase in mosquito activity. Where I live, in Willow Grove, every home has something that could be considered a “collection device” where water can collect. A forgotten flower pot, a toy bucket, old tires behind the shed, all of these and more can be vessels for mosquitoes to breed.

Once mosquitoes breed they are then on the hunt for blood, and it’s the female mosquitoes who are the vampiras of the bunch.

Mosquitoes tend to rest on the underside of leaves on your bushes and trees during the heat of the day. Think about how many trees and bushes we have in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Areas like Devon, Gladwyne, Bryn Mawr, and Wynnewood all have an amazing amount of foliage for these buggers to be. That’s where Grove Pest Control comes into play. Our mosquito control program consists of an outside inspection of your property to identify water collections devices and we eliminate those areas where possible. If you have a pond or area where mass amounts of water collect we can treat those areas with products like Mosquito dunks. Lastly, we come out and spray all the foliage, bushes and trees, wth a misting machine that gets in the nooks and crannies of each and every leaf to assure control.

This service can be done on a one-time basis for folks who are having a garden party and want a quick knock down so your guests are not bothered by the mosquitoes or it could be done on a monthly service which is the most effective as it keeps up with the life cycle of the mosquito.

Whatever service you choose, Grove Pest Control is here for you to provide service with a smile. Call today. 215-237-6831.
