Mosquito Facts and Figures

Mosquitoes are a nuisance, and arguably the most annoying of all the pests we encounter at certain times of the year. Some of our competitors would have you believe that the only good mosquito is a dead mosquito, but that’s simply not true. It’s important to remember that the relationship between pest exposure and pesticide exposure is inverse; the more we reduce your exposure to pests by treating for mosquitoes, the more we increase the amount of pesticides you and the environment will be exposed to.

At PesTecs, we take a more scientific approach to a very old problem with the hope that we can minimize pesticide use while achieving acceptable levels of pest reduction. By making use of available data we can target treatment for when we will have the greatest impact on nuisance mosquito species, and ensure that we are treating areas most likely to be inhabited by the pests we are trying to manage.
