Diseases by Mosquitoes

Spring is great in Massachusetts, but unfortunately one big problem comes with it: the mosquito. Andover, MA residents can contact Yankee Pest Control to rid their yards of mosquitoes proactively, before the dead heat of summer hits. We have been offering home and yard pest removal service to the greater Boston area since 1990.

Until recently, mosquitoes were just a mild nuisance New Englanders had to deal with during the spring and summer months. It wasn’t until about 15 years ago that they were discovered to transmit diseases like Eastern Equine Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, and Lyme disease. In 2014, the Chikungunya virus was found for the first time in America, brought here by mosquitoes. Andover residents should treat their yards for mosquitoes and protect themselves from these illnesses.

Whether you’re planning a party in your backyard, or you would like to keep on top of mosquito prevention this year, Yankee Pest control can help. We provide ongoing service throughout mosquito season to keep you covered. Initially, we will implement a barrier treatment, creating a mosquito-free bubble over your home. This treatment will need to be reapplied once a month to be most effective against mosquitoes. In between barrier applications, our specialists will give you additional advice on ways to prevent mosquitoes from invading your yard. This may include removing standing water and changing the landscape to remove overgrowth and debris.
