Local Mosquito Control With The Greenshield Difference
The Richmond Metro Area is a hotbed for insects, and the city is ranked 14th in the United States for mosquitos. That means you, your pets, and your family are at risk for bites and disease. Mosquitos in Richmond, VA, can carry West Nile Virus, Easter Equine Encephalitis, and Zika. Most pest control services spray pesticides through your yard to kill the mosquitos. But, pesticides are dangerous for your pets, they kill good insects, and can hurt your health. Humans who accidentally breath in the chemicals can experience dizziness, headaches, and nausea. Luckily, Greenshield Pest Control has an environmentally safe solution to control the mosquito population, and keep them from ever coming back. Keep reading to learn more.
Does Your Yard Have Tons Of Mosquitos Around?
If you leave water-filled buckets in your yard, have puddles around your property, or live next to a water source, then you’re at risk of a mosquito infestation. Mosquitos are attracted to standing water and female mosquitos lay their eggs in them. Some mosquitos will even lay eggs in mud! Finally, one mosquito can lay hundreds of eggs at one time. So one mosquito, and your infestation can be out of hand.
Daytime & Evening
Mosquitos are mostly active at night. This is because they do most of their hunting after the sun goes down. But, if you witness them buzzing around your yard in shaded areas, in the daytime, or early evening, then your property is suffering from a mosquito infestation. It means there are so many mosquitos that you’re statistically going to witness them during most times of the day.
It’s rarely known, but male mosquitos don’t generally bite humans. Male mosquitos like to feed off nectar and other sweet substances. When you’re getting bit, the females are the culprits. Females need the blood to produce eggs. So, when you’re getting bit regularly, it’s a sign the female mosquitos are there and actively laying eggs on your property.

Eco-Friendly Mosquito Control Services In Richmond, VA
Our Mosquito Control Program Is The Perfect Solution To Protect Your Family From Bites And Dangerous Pesticides
Protecting Your Yard
If you care about your lawn, plans, and other landscaping features, then you don’t want pesticides. Pesticides can “burn”, a plant’s foliage. The condition is called phytotoxicity and it is a form of chemical burn. Many wooded plants are able to handle the chemicals, but newly grown plants in gardens are at risk. Greenshield Pest Control uses eco-friendly and organic means to control mosquito populations. So your yard is safe with us.
Removal Breeding Grounds
Think about the weather in Richmond, VA. It’s becoming warmer and warmer each year, and the rainfall causes standing puddles and mud that mosquitos can breed in. Plus, a lot of houses in VA sit next to rivers, ponds, and lakes that cause huge mosquito infestations. Finally, every time you wash your car, or leave a kiddy pool filled overnight, the mosquitos will immediately use it to lay their eggs.
Mosquito bites are itchy, obnoxious, and downright disgusting if you’re allergic to them. Kids, pets, and guests love to hang out outside, and when you have a mosquito problem, no one is happy.

Local Mosquito Control FAQ
Do I really need a professional mosquito control service?
The CDC has warnings against mosquitos since they spread diseases like West Nile Virus and Zika. There are over 200 species of mosquitos in the United States, but only 12 spread diseases. Here in Richmond, VA, the Asian Tiger Mosquito is prevalent and can transmit more than West Nile Virus and Zika. Asian Tiger Mosquitos can transmit Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Chikungunya.
You don’t want to take chances these days with more and more diseases spreading to the United States. Call us so you can control your mosquito problem ASAP.
Is it worth treating my home and yard for mosquitos?
There are a lot of risks when you try to prevent mosquitos yourself. You can purchase sprays, but each spray can be toxic to a different species of plant. Second, many of these sprays will also kill good insects that protect your home from other infestations. Finally, insects ingest these chemicals, and then other animals will ingest the insect. So the chemicals can be dangerous to local wildlife.
Greenshield Pest Control is serious about being environmentally friendly. We only use EPA-approved products, and our mosquito control professionals know how to keep your plants, good insects, and family safe.
What is the cost of a mosquito control service here in Richmond, VA?
The cost of a mosquito control service depends on the service area, the extent of the infestation, and the size of the property. Here in Richmond, VA, mosquito control can range from $124 – $399. But, it all really depends on the variables listed above. You can benefit greatly from our mosquito control program because we tailor it to your needs and budget. Everyone deserves to have a mosquito-free home or business.
How do you control the local mosquito population?
Our custom mosquito control plan is tailored to your situation. When we protect your property, there are certain steps that have to be taken. First, we have to locate where they are coming from and prevent them from breeding. Second, we have options to keep them from entering your home. Finally, our technicians can discover and eliminate hiding spots you might not be aware of.
Some of the solutions we use include treating the vegetation with environmentally safe chemicals that won’t damage other plants and animals. They only kill the mosquitos.
Some properties have locations that contain standing water that has to be removed, prevented from occurring again (puddles and mud), or apply safe techniques that keep mosquito eggs from developing in their watery environment.
Our technicians also have microbial solutions that will cause the mosquito eggs to die while keeping other water-based insects and animals safe.
