Facts About Mosquitoes
There are 63 species of mosquitoes that live in New Jersey. While most simply pose a nuisance, others can spread devastating diseases such as West Nile virus and encephalitis. And your pets are at risk, too. Our Mosquito Shield Program offers the most comprehensive Mosquito Protection and Prevention Plan in New Jersey. Mosquito-borne diseases can be prevented by stopping mosquitoes with our three-pronged Integrated Pest management program, that includes:
- A thorough Inspection of the surrounding property.
- Source Elimination: recommendations on how to reduce populations.
- Larvicides: Larvicides kill mosquito larvae before they become adults.
- Barrier Treatments: Professionally-trained ROSS technicians will carefully treat your property with an application of materials that will put up an invisible curtain of protection that most mosquitoes will not be able to penetrate.
New Jersey tests about 20,000 dead birds per year for mosquito-borne disease. Since the primary months are August through October, ROSS begins its preventative treatment program in May and concludes it in October. We treat your property monthly during this period.
All work is preformed by our licensed and insured NJDEP- and NPMA Quality Pro-certified technicians.
