Reading time: 5 minutes

As winter gives way to warmer months In Alberta, mosquito season sets in. If not tackled proactively, very soon, your outdoor activities and backyard leisure could turn into a battle against these pesky invaders.

Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance; their bites can cause significant discomfort and pose health risks by transmitting diseases. So, it makes sense to find an effective mosquito control solution.

Get Ready for the Mosquito Season in Alberta

Mosquito season typically starts in late spring and peaks during the summer months, tapering off with the cooler early fall. Precipitation, temperature, and regional climates can significantly impact the timing and intensity of the season.

So, basically, it all comes down to adopting proactive mosquito control strategies. It's easier to prevent a mosquito population from establishing than to reduce it once it has peaked.

Steps You Can Take To Control Mosquitoes

Buzz Boss Tips and Tricks for Mosquito Protection

Beyond the professional services provided by Buzz Boss (more on that later), there are numerous steps you can take to deter mosquitoes and minimize their breeding grounds.

Here's what you can do.

Prevent Stagnant Water

Regularly empty and clean containers that hold water. These are your plant saucers, bird baths, and pet water dishes. This will prevent mosquito larvae from developing. Ensure gutters and downspouts are clear of debris to avoid standing water, which is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Always cover or invert empty pots, wheelbarrows, and buckets to prevent water collection. If you have a swimming pool, make sure it’s chlorinated and filtered.

Maintain Your Lawn

Trim tall grass, weeds, and shrubs where mosquitoes like to rest on hot days.

Use Insect Repellents

Apply insect repellents containing DEET or Icaridin on exposed skin and clothing for effective protection against mosquito bites. Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts and long pants outdoors, especially during peak mosquito activity times such as dawn and dusk. Use mosquito screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of your home.

Don’t Forego Natural Repellents

You can naturally repel mosquitos by planting mosquito-repelling plants such as citronella, lavender, and marigold around your home and outdoor living spaces. You can also use outdoor fans on patios or decks to keep the pests away.

Combining the above preventative steps with Buzz Boss’s comprehensive mosquito control services gives you a solid defence against mosquitoes.

The Buzz Boss Mosquito Control Process

The Buzz Boss approach to mosquito control is designed to safeguard your home through its trio of meticulously planned phases: BuzzCheck, BuzzOff, and BuzzStop.

This process not only eliminates current pests but also ensures your outdoor spaces remain safe throughout the mosquito season and beyond.

Phase 1: BuzzCheck for Initial Assessment and Planning

  • Inspection of Exterior Home and Yard Area. The first line of defence against mosquitoes begins with a thorough inspection. Our technicians, equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary for the job, assess every inch of your yard and the exterior of your home. They look for standing water in bird baths, clogged gutters, and other less obvious breeding grounds like small puddles hidden in the landscape. Understanding the terrain and identifying these critical areas are essential for a targeted action plan.
  • Pest Identification and Inventory. Identifying the enemy is key to any battle, including the fight against mosquitoes. Our technicians take the time to identify specific mosquito species and understand their behaviours and breeding patterns. This step is crucial because different species may require different strategies. By creating a detailed inventory of pests, Buzz Boss can tailor a treatment plan that’s unique to your home and its surroundings.

Phase 2: BuzzOff for Targeted Treatment

  • Custom Selection of Safe, Effective Control Products. Armed with knowledge from the BuzzCheck phase, we select the most suitable control products for your property. This selection is not a one-size-fits-all solution and depends entirely on what your home requires. We use the safest and most effective options, including natural and eco-friendly products. These solutions are chosen not just for their efficacy but for their minimal impact on the environment and non-toxicity to humans and pets.
  • Application Methods. The battle against mosquitoes is fought on multiple fronts, and we employ a variety of application methods to ensure comprehensive coverage. Techniques may include liquid and granular applications for wide-reaching areas, trapping and baiting for specific targets, and physical exclusion methods to prevent new entries. Each method is chosen based on the life cycle stage of the mosquitoes present, ensuring that treatments are as effective as possible.
  • Guaranteed Results. The effectiveness of our mosquito control efforts is not just a promise—it’s a guarantee. This commitment to results means that homeowners can rest assured knowing that their outdoor spaces will be reclaimed from mosquitoes. Should any treatment not meet expectations, we are committed to making it right, ensuring satisfaction and peace of mind.

Phase 3: BuzzStop for Prevention and Education

  • Monitoring and Future Prevention Plans. Effective mosquito control doesn’t end with treatment. The BuzzStop phase focuses on the future, establishing a monitoring plan to detect any new mosquito activity. This proactive surveillance ensures that any potential infestations are caught early and dealt with promptly. Regular follow-ups and inspections are part of this ongoing effort to keep your home mosquito-free.
  • Customer Education. A crucial aspect of the BuzzStop phase is empowering homeowners with knowledge. Our experts provide essential tips and advice on maintaining a yard that’s less attractive to mosquitoes. Homeowners learn how to make their environment less hospitable to mosquitoes, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the Buzz Boss system.
