Celebrate good times, come on! Let’s celebrate!Kool and the Gang may not have been thinking about coming out of a pandemic when they put together those lyrics, but the song truly fits this summer.
Weddings are being booked once again, large family gatherings are being organized, and social events big and small are ramping up throughout cottage country.
And the flying biters are eagerly anticipating every opportunity to attack. It’s why Jordan Lavin, Chief Operating Officer of mosquito.buzz, says it’s essential to include full service mosquito control when planning your events.
“We’re all excited to be back to hosting friends and family the way we used to,” says Jordan. “Mosquitoes are just as excited about outdoor parties as we are. Don’t let them ruin your good times.”
Treatments applied by mosquito.buzz expert technicians are proven to work: a single application eliminates adult mosquito populations instantly.
Each application carefully targets the pesky biters in their living, resting, and hiding spaces. These treatments also provide a residual barrier for up to 21 days.
It’s why they boast thousands of satisfied clients – and growing – who return annually on scheduled treatment plans. With over 40 service vehicles strategically spread in cottage country, mosquito.buzz is ready and able to schedule applications for new customers’ properties quickly – meaning you won’t have to wait for weeks to get a first treatment.
“We can often service new customers on a next-day basis,” says Shawn Karn, Technical Director of mosquito.buzz.
While some consider mosquitoes to be a minor nuisance, there are health risks to consider. The pests can spread West Nile Virus to humans as well as other animals.
“It’s important to get protected and then stay protected,” advises Jordan. “Being on a consistent treatment schedule means you’re not worried about when your guests arrive for a large celebration, or when it’s a low-key affair for immediate family.”
Taking care of ticks
It’s not just mosquitoes which pose a health risk.
Harmful blacklegged tick populations continue to increase and spread across Ontario. Active surveillance maps distributed by Public Health Ontario illustrate the estimated risk areas and the possibility of encountering a blacklegged tick is almost everywhere in Ontario.
“The greatest risk to tick exposure is during the spring, summer, and fall when ticks are searching for their next blood meal,” says Shawn. “Our tick applications are scheduled accordingly and target the ticks to eliminate the risk of infestation across the entire property.”
Both the mosquito and tick control treatments are safe for families, pets, and other wildlife. They target the pests that can be harmful and reduce enjoyment of your property.
“Our commitment to excellence in service and control treatments provides tremendous results for our clients. Make sure to protect your guests and your family before the party season begins.”
