Don't Get Infected With The Zika Virus
New York is home to many pests that can make you ill. Mosquitoes and ticks are two pests of concern that are known to transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus, Lyme disease and potentially Zika virus.
You can take proactive steps and significantly reduce ticks and mosquitoes on your property by reducing their breeding areas, a timely treatment program and habitat modification.
Spraying against adult populations is of little value if you do not fix the sources of standing water. But people typically ignore the advice to remove breeding sites. Proactive pest management will reduce populations.
An early (Spring) season treatment schedule from Select Exterminating is key to wiping out mosquito hot spots and making a significant reduction in annual populations.
