Zika Virus Leading to an Increase Demand for Mosquito Control Sales Leads
Mosquitoes all over the world are known for the potentially deadly viruses, ailments, and diseases they can transmit as they fly from host to host in search of bloody sustenance. Americans often hear about how other countries are stricken with severe if not fatal mosquito transmitted diseases. But once those viruses and illnesses become a reality in the United States, citizen’s panic and demand for mosquito control escalates. With several confirmed cases of Zika in the U.S., the masses are hysterically searching for solutions provided by professional experts.
Mosquito Barrier Control Services
Pest management companies offering mosquito control generally offer a few effective means in mosquito control; spraying treatments and outdoor misting systems.
Mosquito Control Spraying Treatments. The barrier spray treatments are widely supplied to customers seeking reprieve from the ongoing mosquito presence. With mosquito spraying treatments only taking approximately 20 minutes to perform and lasting up to 3 weeks, the treatments are commonly used and highly effective. The formulas are generally designed to target mosquitoes, but as an added benefit, many ticks, fleas, and flies succumb to the spray barrier. Even if rain is in the forecast, the spray method is still a good choice that customers have experience and feel comfortable with.
Outdoor Mosquito Misting Systems. Outdoor misting systems that are commonly known to many customers as “mosquito misters” are a favorite. This method is designed to deliver a fine mist of pesticides through spray nozzles mounted strategically along the perimeter of the home and landscaping. Either featured with a timer to deliver a mist at specific times and/or with the use of a remote to manually execute a mist in an effort to keep the mosquitoes at bay.
Matching Supply with Demand in the Pest Control Industry
With pest management companies utilizing these popular and effective methods of mosquito control, it is important that people looking for these services can find them. And pest control companies that didn’t previously offer mosquito control before, will benefit by offering mosquito spraying treatments and misting systems to expand potential sales leads and secure regular customers.
