Hi I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida and a lot of people want to know how to rid their home of mosquitoes. Well mosquitoes can be a real bad problem especially with a lot of the diseases that they carry. Once inside the home we have to look at ways that the mosquitoes are getting in. Keeping your home sealed up properly, keeping screens repaired, if you have a little hole in the screen you want to go ahead and repair those but keeping the home nice and tight will actually eliminate a lot of mosquitoes from getting inside the home. Once they are inside the home and you want to go ahead and get rid of them, using a professional product might be a good way to go ahead and get rid of them. We have a product right here. This is called a PT 565 fogger. It is put out by Whitmire Products and this product can be sprayed either by a professional or by a homeowner inside the home. It only takes a couple of blasts in every room. This actually puts out a little fogging unit and this will kill any flies or mosquitoes that are flying inside the home. Now two or three second bursts in each room will rid most homes of mosquitoes and flies for probably up to a month so very easy to control, making sure again that your home is airtight, that the screens are repaired, are the best ways to stop them from getting in but once they do get in try one of the professional products. I'm Mark Govan with ABC Pest Control in Largo, Florida, hoping you have a pest free day.
