Mosquito Control in Norfolk
Norfolk is a beautiful area that is home to largest naval base in the world. With a population of 245,115, Norfolk is a also a popular tourist spot (City-Data.com). With the warm, humid summer days and nights, it is a wonderful place to live and visit. There are a number of outdoor activities that you can do including kayaking on in the Norfolk Botanical Garden or visiting the Virginia Zoo. You can participate in many of these activities nearly year-round since the temperature rarely drops below freezing.
Enjoying your time outside as a family or with friends is part of the lifestyle in Norfolk. Unfortunately, mosquitoes can quickly ruin any outdoor gathering you may have. With the temperate climate and mild winters, there is a higher chance of mosquitoes and ticks surviving the winter months, which can increase the overall insect population in the area. In addition to being annoying, mosquitoes can also carry diseases such a West Nile Virus and the Zika virus. Mosquito Tek can help exterminate mosquitoes on your property and allow you to enjoy the outdoors again.
Although you may be tempted to use “do-it-yourself sprays,” you may end up harming yourself or your pets if the treatments are not applied properly and you are exposed to mosquitoes immediately after application. Mosquito Tek has the state-of-art equipment and mosquito control experience to give you complete relief from mosquito bites.

We understand just how important your family’s safety is to you, which is why we offer two of the safest treatment options available on the market. Both of our treatments are effective at knocking down mosquitoes and protecting you from the diseases that they carry.

Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
One essential part of mosquito control is treating any areas to stop mosquitoes where they breed. At Mosquito Tek, we stop mosquitoes from breeding with a two-step plan. First, we will inspect your yard for any containers that may be collecting water, and tip them over to eliminate places that mosquitoes may breed. We also use a larvicide in standing water that may be around your yard. It eliminates the larvae when they feed on it, but it is safe for other aquatic insects.
Affordable Flea and Tick Control Upgrade
Fleas and ticks can trouble people even if they do not have a dog or cat. They can come in on you or your family members. They may also come in when you get new carpets or other objects. Ticks and fleas can cause tapeworms, typhoid fever, and Lyme disease. These diseases can affect both humans and pets.
