After just 30 minutes of this application, it will be safe for all pets and household residents to come outside and play.We’ll also take the time to inspect your land for active larvae and then we’ll offer proper treatment for these. Your technician will assist you in identifying possible breeding grounds for these insects and will teach you strategies for eliminating standing water on your property. At the end of this treatment, these and other notes will be placed on a special door hanger post-treatment. Our team will come back to your yard once every three weeks.
Each of the chemicals that we use in our barrier sprays are synthetic versions of pyrethrins known as pyrethroids. Derived from pyrethrum, which is naturally occurring, pyrethrins are insecticides that are found within chrysanthemum. Pyrethroids can be found in a variety of commercial products that are commonly used by consumers for insect control such as pet sprays and pet shampoos, pet insecticides and even in lice shampoos that are used right on the scalp. The typical treatment with barrier sprays is effective against ticks, fleas and even certain types of flies.
Each of our mosquito control services can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you, irrespective of whether you happen to be at home during treatment. So long as your property can be accessed by our technicians, you can count on these professionals to tell you that your outdoor areas have been treated.
Everyone knows that mosquito bites are no fun at all given that they leave you itchy and irritated for quite some time. But the itchiness and irritation that mosquito bites cause are one small part the problem – these bites can progress from being merely annoying to downright deadly. There has been a notable increase in insect-borne diseases throughout the West that have caused severe disease and far worse in certain instances. Georgia Lawn and Pests wants people to enjoy traveling as much as they love relaxing in their own backyards, so keep reading on mosquito-borne diseases, where these illnesses are most active and how you can protect yourself.
ZIKA virus is spread by Aedes mosquitoes that are infected and that move from one individual to the next, spreading their sickness by biting. Some of the most common symptoms of the Zika virus include joint pain, conjunctivitis, fever and rash. This illness is typically pretty mild and just one in five people are likely to exhibit symptoms. People rarely need hospitalization for Zika and death and severe illness are rarer still.
Those with the greatest Zika risk are expecting women and their unborn infants. Health officials and scientists have confirmed that this virus is connected with Guillain-Barre Syndrome and microcephaly, which are two neurological brain defects that can result in disability and brain damage. Throughout the U.S., several reports of Zika having been sexually transmitted have been confirmed as well.
Doctors believe that Zika may be transmitted to babies by their mother in utero and it has also been reported that this virus might be sexually transmittable. Zika virus has been linked to microcephaly, which can cause severe, cranial disfiguration in fetuses and newborns.
41 countries throughout the world have recorded cases of the Zika virus. As of April 13 of 2016, there have been 358 confirmed cases of the Zika virus in the United States, each of which was acquired abroad. With millions of Zika infections reported in Central and South America, the World Health Organization (WHO), continues its urgent public health announcements and declared state of public emergency, while encouraging travelers who are headed into specific areas to delay their plans or cancel them entirely.
There is currently no vaccine or treatment for Zika and thus, the best method of protection is to prevent mosquito bites. Our barrier treatments and other services for mosquito control can significantly cull the numbers of mosquitoes round your home for three weeks at a time. In addition to these efforts, you should also eliminate desirable breeding grounds on your property to prevent these insects from laying their eggs.

West Nile Virus
Most active in areas throughout North America during the months of summer and early fall, West Nile is a mosquito-borne virus. There were more than 2,000 cases of this illness reported as of January 2016 and 65 percent of these cases lead to neuro-invasive diseases such as encephalitis and meningitis. It typically takes several days following transmission for the symptoms of West Nile virus to appear and these include headache, rash, fever, vomiting and nausea. There is no vaccine or treatment for West Nile and thus, people are advised to use standard mosquito repellents in order to prevent mosquito bites. Go to the hospital right away if you or someone you love is exhibiting severe West Nile symptoms. You can learn more by visiting the West Nile page on the CDC website.
Fairly new to the Western Hemisphere, this mosquito-borne illness arrived in 2013 and rapidly spread to South America, Central America and certain parts of Florida. As per the Pan American Health Organization, over 600,000 cases of Chikungunya were recorded in 2015 throughout the Americas. This illness is characterized by joint pain, fever, rash and headaches. The name for this illness is derived from a Makonde word meaning “it bends up” given that Chikungunya victims can spend weeks in bed, suffering with crippling pain. Yikes!
A well-known, mosquito-borne illness, Dengue fever is the leading cause of death and illness throughout the tropical region. Each year, more than 400 million people are infected with this virus, which causes nausea, headaches and intense body aches. Travel advisories for South America, Central America, the Caribbean and Hawaii have recently been lifted after a surge in new cases early this year. Basic prevention strategies for mosquito bites, however, continue to be encouraged.
