Sarasota and Bradenton's Best Organic Mosquito Control Company! Call (941) 761-0125

We recognize the utter frustration that property owners inevitably experience when mosquitoes begin to breed nearby.  These pests are known to transmit dozens of diseases so you will want to minimize their populations on your property. The blood-sucking flies have been around for millions of years, feeding on all kinds of mammals, including humans. There are so many different species that it's pretty safe to say that nearly every single creature on the planet has had to deal with them in some way, shape or form. Mosquitoes are small, but the statistics indicate that the lowly and humble mosquito is actually the deadliest creature on Earth.  We provide effective mosquito reduction in Southwest Florida to keep mosquitoes at a minimum on your property allowing you and your family an opportunity to better enjoy your outdoor living area.

Westfall's organic mosquito control is not harmful to humans or pets and can be used to reduce mosquito populations around patios, porches, playgrounds, and swimming pool areas. Mosquitoes like warm, humid, weather and need to be somewhere near still water. All species of mosquitoes lay their eggs in water and some species can do so in just a cup full of water. Even a simple puddle after a rain storm can breed mosquitoes.  Our mosquito control both repels and kills mosquitoes at all stages of growth so families can enjoy the outdoors without worrying. While mosquitoes themselves feed on nectar, females require blood to produce eggs. For this reason, they are nearly always on the lookout for new hosts. Mosquitoes are known for the spread of Zika virus, yellow fever, malaria, and West Nile virus, so protect your family today with our mosquito control program.  One of the best ways to control mosquitoes is to prevent them from breeding. That's why a comprehensive mosquito control program is important for your property.  Although mosquitoes are famous for their feeding times during the dusk and dawn hours, during the day, they like to rest in cool, damp areas, normally areas thick with vegetation.

If you are concerned about mosquitoes around your property Call Westfall's Pest Control!  We will schedule a visit from one of our mosquito control specialists to assess your property and discuss treatment options.

This update from Daniel Change in Miami. "Miami Beach residents living and working near four sites where traps captured Zika-positive mosquitoes in August and September said public health officials didn’t tell them until Wednesday — after the Miami Herald sued to get the locations — that the traps were as close as their back yards and school yards, potentially upping their risk.

“’I feel it was a real failure of communication,’ said Galen Treuer, 37, a student at the University of Miami who lives at 1236 Drexel Ave., one of four Miami Beach addresses identified Wednesday by Miami-Dade mosquito control officials. ‘They weren’t giving out information to reduce our exposure.’

“Paola Castro, a 33-year-old who lives in an apartment building at another of the sites — 1619 Meridian Ave., just south of Lincoln Road Mall — said she would have liked to have known, too. ‘That’s information they should say immediately, so people can take precautions, like not dressing in black and wearing repellent,’ she said.

“Nearly all of the locations in Miami Beach where traps captured mosquitoes carrying Zika virus are in residential areas, though some are next to schools and near tourist destinations. The county identified four addresses in South Beach after the Miami Herald filed a lawsuit against Miami-Dade seeking the locations.

“In addition to the Drexel Avenue and Meridian Avenue sites, the county said the Zika-carrying mosquitoes were trapped at 932 Lenox Ave., a yellow, two-story townhouse on a residential block, and 2378 Prairie Ave., a single-family home across the street from Miami Beach Senior High and near Hebrew Academy’s Rabbi Alexander Gross High School, the Miami Beach Golf Club and the Bayshore Municipal Golf Course.

“A fifth site — Miami Beach Botanical Garden at 2000 Convention Center Dr. — was identified on Sept. 1, when Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services first announced that traps had captured mosquitoes carrying Zika. However, the garden had been closed three days prior to the announcement.

“The mosquitoes trapped at the five locations tested positive for Zika in late August and early September. But subsequent samples captured at the same sites have been negative for the virus, Miami-Dade officials said.”
