Daniel Island, SC, has the same humid subtropical climate as the rest of Charleston, which means you have to watch out for mosquitoes in the summer months. Though you might be accustomed to seeing a few in the backyard, you should know that mosquitoes breed quickly, laying up to 300 eggs at a single time. When they become so abundant that you can't ward them off with insect repellents and citronella, that would be the time to call MosquitoNix.
For your property to seem attractive to mosquitoes, two things are required: areas of standing water to breed in; and grassy areas to dwell in, such as tall grasses, trees, and shrubs. Mosquitoes will migrate to the latter and then search out the former. They can lay their eggs in your swimming pool, a children's pool, a rain collection system, a birdbath, or even an old tire that has collected rainwater. If there's a lake or swamp nearby, these are probably the most ideal breeding grounds. The shallowest bit of water will suffice, though.
While they won't cause any structural damage or contaminate any food, mosquitoes still pose a serious health risk because their bites (only the females bite) can transmit diseases. These range from malaria to yellow fever to the Zika virus. Symptoms usually include headaches, fevers, and, in the case of the Zika and West Nile viruses, skin rash and muscle pain. Most reactions are mild, but for those with weakened immune systems, they can become life-threatening.
Our Misting System
At MosquitoNix, we offer two main methods for eliminating these pests. The first is our misting system; we'll install nozzles around the whole perimeter of your yard and garden, which will release, at set times throughout the day, a natural blend of plant extracts to kill and repel 99% of mosquitoes. You'll have control over the system controls; remote control is possible through your iPhone or web browser.
The spray is certified by the EPA and will not harm the health or you, your children, or your pets. The nozzles come with anti-leak and anti-siphoning mechanisms. However, if there's a leak, you can take advantage of our 24-hour customer support and request a repair. The cost of repairs will be covered under our lifetime warranty. The whole system comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if ever you don't want the system anymore, we'll uninstall it and provide a full refund.
Our QuickNix Treatment
The second treatment method is our very own QuickNix program, which is composed of three steps. Our employees will apply a specially formulated insecticide across your yard; it will penetrate through thick bushes, flushing out and killing mosquitoes with an instant knockdown effect. At the same time, we'll sprinkle all-natural mosquito repellent granules around the patio and other areas you frequent most. The last stage is a standing water treatment. After identifying the breeding grounds, we'll treat both the eggs and larvae with a larvicide.
You'll be amazed with how quickly QuickNix can obtain results. Within the first week, there may be as much as a 90% reduction in mosquitoes, followed by a gradual drop-off in their presence.
