Residential and Commercial Mosquito Control

Mosquitoes are one of the biggest nuisance pests there are. Their bites are itchy and irritating and they carry some of humanity’s most dreaded diseases including West Nile virus and the Zika virus. To reduce the public health concerns of mosquito-borne diseases, the Knox County Health Department even conducts a mosquito control program during the summer months.

These seemingly never-ending pests are one of the worst pest control problems in East Tennesee. That is why everyone from Tellico Village, Knoxville, Oak Ridge, Gatlinburg, and the surrounding areas trust Otis Pest Control to take back their outdoor space from mosquitos.

Why Can’t I Control Mosquitos Myself?

We have all tried handling mosquitos on our own before. Whether it’s little candles that make everyone cough, way too much bug repellent, or even just fly swatters. At the end of the day, you still go back inside covered in bites. But why?

There are two main problems with traditional DIY mosquito control treatments.

  1. They are not powerful enough.
  2. They don’t stop new mosquitos from hatching.

The mosquito control treatments available to the public are simply not strong enough effective kill mosquitos in large numbers or they are just designed to keep them away from a small area. These treatments also don’t stop new mosquitos from hatching.

That is why you need a professional pest control service. Preferably a local pest control service, because they understand the area better than national brands. Fortunately, Otis Pest Control has been serving Knoxville and East Tennessee since 1974. That is over 45 years of pest control experience.

How Do You Treat Mosquitos?

All mosquitoes require water to breed, so extermination and population control require an integrated approach that involves not only chemical treatment but the removal of standing water sources.

Our comprehensive mosquito management program works with homeowners to exterminate mosquitoes and on prevention, helping to reduce the conditions that lead to mosquito infestation. We begin with a thorough inspection of your property to identify mosquito breeding locations.

We then apply an EPA registered pesticide to kill mosquitoes on contact and to provide lasting mosquito control results. Treatments are applied to bushes, under leaves, and some grass areas along the perimeter of your house. The treatments are safe on plants.

Combating mosquitoes is a complex process and the most effective methods for controlling them require source reduction, chemical control, and biological control.
