Trusted Mosquito Control Austin
If you’re an Austin native, it’s no secret that mosquitos are a nuisance. Sure enough, as soon as the sun starts to set, you are in danger of getting a bite from one of these pesky bugs.
Mosquitos go beyond being a bother to us, giving us uncomfortable and itchy bites. They are also a health hazard that many people don’t take seriously enough. Mosquitos can be carriers of deadly diseases that they can transmit through their bites. They are also responsible for heartworm cases in dogs.
From 2004 through 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 6,600 cases of human disease were revealed in Texas. The cause of this disease resulted from mosquito bites, putting the state in the top 20 percent of states for mosquito-borne illness.
If all of that isn’t enough to show you how serious mosquito control is, we don’t know what is.
Protect your family and pets from the dangers brought by mosquitos with Stampede Pest Control’s mosquito control plans. We provide prompt, long-lasting, and effective pest management in Austin for affordable rates. Give us a call now to get started.
Here are some important facts worth knowing.
Why Do Homeowners Have Such a Hard Time Controlling Mosquitos?

What Other Factors Cause Mosquitoes to Infest Your Austin, TX Home?
The best way to keep mosquitoes out of your home and out of your life is to ensure that you have no standing water in your home or directly outside of it. This means you need to be sure you don’t have any leaks or any areas in your yard that could be potentially collecting rainwater.
In addition to watching out for standing water that could attract a yard of mosquitoes, you should make sure you are taking other proactive steps for mosquito control. We can perform treatments both in your backyard and inside of your home.

Utilizing Eco-Friendly Mosquito Repellents At Home
There are ways you can temporarily ward off mosquito populations that are available at the store. There are mosquito-repelling plants such as citronella grass and rosemary (one of the ingredients we use in our organic pest control service).
It may look like an attractive option to purchase that citronella candle, bug light, or mosquito-repelling plant the next time you’re at the store. You should note that these deterrents are only temporary and do not have the power to prevent mosquitoes for long periods.
