Designed in Texas by Texans, specifically for Texas Mosquitoes, the Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control is the first mosquito control system that eliminates both mosquitoes and the need for automatic mosquito misting systems.
Our more than 99% natural solution not only minimizes your family’s risk to harmful pathogens such as West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis, but it also reduces pesticide exposure by up to 90% compared to nozzle misting systems. Better yet, our customers report the Barefoot system is much more effective than expensive nozzle systems.
Houston Mosquito Control Services FAQs
Nobody wants to see mosquitoes in their home or yard. Not only is their bite a terrible nuisance, but some mosquito species can actually transmit dangerous diseases. Ridding your property of mosquitoes is crucial to the health and comfort of your family. Read these FAQs to find out how the Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control helps protect you and your home from pesky mosquitoes.
How Many Treatments Does It Typically Take to Get Rid of Mosquitoes?
Each home and property faces different mosquito challenges. We can give a more accurate expectation once we view the challenges of your specific property, but in general, we expect you to enjoy up to a 95% reduction in mosquito activity by your third treatment.
When Is the Best Time of Year to Treat for Mosquitoes in Houston?
Houston experiences mosquito problems year-round, so we advise you treat for mosquitoes all year long. The most crucial service takes place in early spring, when we lay the foundation for preventing mosquitoes from establishing a presence on your property. Taking the time to schedule this service will dramatically reduce the mosquito population on your property for the remainder of the year.
How Soon Can I Resume Normal Outdoor Activities After the Mosquito Treatment?
You can actually enjoy your regular activities in as little as 5 to 10 minutes after we finish our treatment. Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control uses a power mist, rather than a spray, and the mist dries very quickly.
What If All of My Neighbors in Houston Have Mosquitoes?
When you choose The Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control , you don’t have to worry about your neighbors’ mosquitoes. The effective system actually creates a vertical barrier around your property. When mosquitoes attempt to breach your mosquito barrier, they’ll be repelled.
Does the Treatment Kill More Than Just Mosquitoes?
We can treat for a variety of pests on your property. Ask us about our helpful discounts when you combine mosquito and pest services.
Does Your Mosquito Treatment Have an Odor?
You may notice a slight odor from the natural oils in The Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control for approximately one day after you receive the treatment. You shouldn’t notice the odor beyond that first day, but it will remain as a strong deterrent to mosquitoes for up to 30 days.
Is Your Houston Mosquito Control Service Guaranteed?
Yes, you can trust The Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control . We fully guarantee our service from the third service and beyond. This is because it takes three consecutive services to deal with the hatching cycle of any mosquitoes on your property and to create an environment that is free of mosquitoes. If you’re on a continual service, and mosquitoes reinfest your property within five days of a service, we’ll come back and give a booster service at no additional charge (as long as your balance is current and all necessary conducive conditions have been resolved).
What Results Can I Expect from Your Houston Mosquito Control Service?
It’s impossible to achieve complete 100% eradication of mosquitoes. However, our proven scientific methods will severely reduce the mosquito presence on your property. We expect you’ll see up to a 95% reduction in mosquito activity by your third treatment.
Why Are There So Many Mosquitoes in Houston?
Just like us, mosquitoes are attracted to the lush landscape, large shade trees, and all the lakes and rivers in Texas.
Does Standing Water Lead to More Mosquitoes in Houston?
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, and some species can even breed in an amount as small as a bottle cap. Since much of Houston is built on marshes, forested land, and swamps, and considering how flat Houston is, standing water is certainly a problem in the Houston area. Mosquitoes need standing water to keep their species going, so it’s no wonder they like to make themselves at home in Houston.
Do Mosquitoes Carry the Zika Virus?
Some mosquitoes do carry the Zika virus. When a mosquito bites a person infected with the virus, and then bites another person, Zika can be transferred. There have been few local transmissions in the United States, with most occurring in Florida. However, local transmission was confirmed in Brownsville, TX in December of 2016.
Why Do Mosquitoes Bite Humans?
Female mosquitoes need blood in their diet so they can develop and lay eggs. Male mosquitoes, on the other hand, feed on flower nectar, rather than human blood.
Why Do Certain Individuals Get Bitten More Than Others?
Nobody knows for certain why some people are bitten more than others, but we do know that mosquitoes recognize humans as a tasty snack by our body heat, carbon monoxide, lactic acid, and by our movement. Some theories suggest that people who emit greater amounts of CO2 (larger individuals and those who are currently active) are more obvious to mosquitoes. Some theories suggest that the color of your clothes will attract mosquitoes, with darker clothing being more attractive. Mosquitoes are also attracted to sweat and foot odor.
Do All Mosquitoes in Houston Transmit Dangerous Diseases?
No. Only certain species carry certain diseases. For example, less than 2% of all mosquito species can carry West Nile Virus.
Why Are Mosquito Populations Increasing in Houston?
Mosquito populations increase when weather conditions are favorable for them. Early springs give mosquitoes an early start, and more opportunity to breed and multiply. In addition, heavy rains often lead to flooding in Houston, which dramatically increases the mosquito populations. Houston’s high humidity, combined with high summer temperatures, means mosquitoes are comfortable making their home in Texas.
Why Can’t I Get Rid of Mosquitoes Myself?
Because mosquitoes reproduce rapidly, one female mosquito can be responsible for millions of mosquitoes in as little as a few weeks. Without the proper equipment and training, it can be impossible for a homeowner to effectively rid their property of these annoying, and sometimes dangerous, insects.
