In Tennessee, mosquitoes can be a major annoyance during the warmer months, making outdoor activities less enjoyable. To fully enjoy the outdoors without the constant annoyance of mosquito bites, it's important to invest in effective mosquito control. Fortunately, there's a new and improved way to reduce these pests - mosquito traps. These traps are designed to attract mosquitoes and coat them in a treatment that will eliminate both mosquitoes and their breeding sites. What makes these traps better is that they don't involve the use of insecticides being sprayed all over your yard, making them safer for pets and the environment. Pros will also replace them every 30 days throughout the mosquito season to keep the product potent and yield the best results.

How do mosquito traps work?

Mosquito traps are designed to target and control mosquito populations using an innovative mechanism. The traps lure mosquitoes into a container with a floatation device covered in a biocide. As mosquitoes are gradually drawn to the trap, they enter and come into contact with the biocide, coating themselves with the treatment. Then, they become carriers of the substance as they transport it to breeding sites. This treatment coating plays an important role in eradicating mosquito larvae, effectively breaking the mosquito reproductive cycle and significantly reducing the overall mosquito population. The initial carrier mosquito is also eliminated.

Why are mosquito traps better?

Mosquito traps offer a highly efficient and environmentally friendly solution for controlling mosquito populations. These traps operate by using an attractant to entice mosquitoes and then eradicate them without the need for frequent applications of insecticides. This approach not only reduces the potential for exposure to insecticides for both pets and humans but also lessens the overall environmental impact.

One of the key advantages of mosquito traps is their precise targeting of mosquitoes while minimizing the impact on non-target insects. Unlike traditional insecticide applications, which can have detrimental effects on beneficial insects and other wildlife, mosquito traps are specifically designed to attract and eliminate mosquitoes without causing harm to other beneficial species. This targeted approach helps in maintaining ecological balance while effectively managing mosquito populations.

Mosquito traps provide an environmentally friendly solution for efficient and effective mosquito control.

Do you need to replace mosquito traps?

Pest control professionals will typically replace mosquito traps every 30 days throughout the active mosquito season. This is necessary because the biocide inside the trap gradually loses its potency over time. By adhering to a 30-day replacement schedule, the traps can continue to stay potent and provide continuous protection against mosquitoes. That way, they yield maximum results, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors with a drastically reduced mosquito population!

In Tennessee, the active mosquito season typically begins in late March and continues through September.
