Sep 05, 2023

At Mosquito Hero, we work hard to defend your property from harmful biting pests with effective tick control and mosquito control services. Our certified technicians are trained to effectively reduce the tick and mosquito populations in your yard, in accordance with our environmentally responsible Integrated Pest Management practices.

So, what exactly is Integrated Pest Management?


To put it simply, Integrated Pest Management is an ecosystem-based strategy that focuses on long-term prevention of pests and pest-related damage. We do this with a combination of techniques, including:


  • surveillance

  • source reduction

  • control of all mosquito life stages

  • insecticide resistance testing


This means that we only use pesticides after careful monitoring indicates that they are needed and with the goal of removing only the target organism. In accordance with all guidelines and regulations, we select and apply pest control materials in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, beneficial and nontarget organisms (like pollinators), and the environment.

Today, government agencies are recommending Integrated Pest Management procedures similar to ours, and we’re proud to say that we’ve been using this effective, holistic approach to pest

management through our parent company Weed Man since it was founded more than 50 years ago
