You might think mosquito season winds down as the summer ends, but don’t start celebrating just yet. Huntsville and other Alabama cities are experiencing more “mosquito days” than ever. A recent study published in May 2023 defines a mosquito day as one with a relative humidity of at least 42% and temperatures between 50 and 95 degrees.
Since 1979 and through 2022, cities like Montgomery and Birmingham have seen more of these mosquito-friendly conditions. And the Huntsville area hasn’t escaped an increase in the type of weather loved by little bloodsuckers either. This means it’s time to be proactive about protecting your family and home from these buzzing pests.
Mild Winters in Alabama Make Our Mosquito Season Longer
In Alabama, mosquitos often stick around past the traditional end-of-October cutoff. These pests don’t always get the seasonal memo, thanks to our relatively mild winters. Extended mosquito activity means we should remain vigilant into the fall. Remember that these months can still present a risk for those irritating bites and the potential diseases that mosquitoes can carry. This is another reason a targeted mosquito service is so relevant—it’s designed to give you peace of mind, regardless of how long the little critters decide to hang around. While our mosquito service typically is put on hold between November and February, we are happy to come out and service during those months if you need us to!
Who We Are at Scout Pest Control
Scout Pest Control is more than just another company trying to kill bugs; we’re also your neighbors. We proudly serve Huntsville, Madison, and Athens, focusing on improving your quality of life. Our team brings years of experience to your business, home and yard, solving problems even in the most sensitive environments. We do background checks on all our employees to make sure they’re people you can trust.
Our Mosquito Service Takes the Sting Out of Early Fall
Scout’s mosquito control service goes beyond gadgets and gizmos. We use a gas-powered mister to treat foliage and other spots where mosquitoes like to rest. Our treatments remove their hiding places, reducing their numbers significantly. We also treat standing water areas to kill off mosquito larvae, and we even point out places on your property where you can make changes to stop them from breeding.
Close Neighbors But Not So Friendly
Afraid of mosquitoes invading from next door? Don’t worry. Because they’re weak flyers, our treatments tackle even mosquitoes coming from nearby yards. Depending on your yard’s specifics, you can look forward to a 60–80% reduction in mosquito numbers, which means fewer bites and more outdoor fun.
We Make More Than Just Mosquitoes Disappear
Our General Pest Control program usually requires only one service per season. That’s a money-saver when you compare it to companies that need to visit every month. We adapt our services to your home’s seasonal needs and offer eco-friendlier Green Pest Control options that align with National Organics Program standards. From rodent control to bed bug services, we can handle it for you.
