Looking for a way to get rid of mosquitoes? Than you’ve come to the right place. Did you know that we are looking at a record year for mosquito populations in Ontario? In fact, we are predicted to have one of the worst years ever for mosquitoes!

The reality is that with increased temperatures and high levels of moisture, mosquito’s now have longer window’s for reproduction. This gives the optimal conditions for their larva! Needless to say, home owners are reaching out to local pest control companies for the solution!

We recommend taking some precautionary steps to avoiding coming in contact with them in the first place. These steps include avoiding out side activity around their most active times (dawn and dusk). Wearing long sleeve light coloured clothing, and finally using mosquito spray when possible. If possible try to use sprays with the active ingredient DEET.

If you would however like to take your mosquito control to the next level, contact us any time. we operate between the hours of 9-5 Monday to Friday. Reserve a spot for a mosquito treatment early to ensure coverage. We are one of the top mosquito control companies in Ontario and we always ensure a completely satisfied customer.
