Demand for Residential Mosquito Control Continues to Surge!
Residential Mosquito Control has been on the rise for several years now. The covid-19 pandemic has now fueled the demand even further as more and more people look to create a more healthy, comfortable and safe, “At-Home Environment”.
The “backyards” of most Massachusetts neighborhoods took center stage during the pandemic. Call Center data at Ultra Safe Pest Management showed a 35% increase in homeowner requests for Mosquito Control Services in 2020.
New Mosquito Treatment Technology.
New Mosquito Treatment Technology has proven successful in recent seasons and will continue into the 2021 Mosquito Season. Ultra Safe Staff Entomologists have tested reported on two new Mosquito devices during the 2020 Season that included the In-2-Care Mosquito System and the new Makita 4-Stroke Mist Blower.
In-2-Care Mosquito System
The In-2-Care Mosquito System utilizes a bucket device with an active Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that treats egg-laying mosquitoes and prevents the eggs from developing. The system was created using grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and has shown a lot of promise when used as part of a comprehensive treatment program like Ultra Safe’s UltraGuard Mosquito Treatment Program.
