What’s biting? Protect yourself and your family with Safari Tree’s mosquito control program!

The sun is out, you are relaxing outside, enjoying the lush, green lawn, when suddenly “OUCH!”  You swat at your arm and look down to see an angry welt start rising, accompanied by some itching.  Pretty soon, you realize you can’t stop scratching and the angry welt is getting bigger and more painful!  You start looking around and ruining your peaceful zen time you spot the reason for this disruption: MOSQUITOES!

It’s that time of year when these flying pests are coming out in force, and not only are they a nuisance, they are also known to carry AND transmit disease such as the West Nile virus, which can be fatal.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have discovered, since the West Nile Virus was first identified in New York in 1999, that at least 60 species of mosquitoes have been identified as carriers of the disease.  More than 80 cases and 10 deaths were reported in Michigan alone in 2012.

Mosquito control is very important as they are more than just a bother, but they threaten the very safety of your home, your pets and especially your family members.  Typically, they are most active in late summer, early fall, but they do start flying around once the weather starts to warm up.

Protect your family and your home today by contacting Safari Tree to sign up for our mosquito control program.  We also over an alternative to the chemical treatment, an organic mosquito control treatment plan that is just as effective.
