Florida Mosquito Control Experts
Living in Palm Beach, Broward, Martin or Port St. Lucie Counties, you have likely been bitten recently by at least one of the eighty species of mosquitoes in the state.
Did you know that thirteen of these species are capable of transmitting pathogens that cause disease?
While mosquito control can be a challenge due to the various mosquito breeding sites that may be located in your neighborhood, we have a variety of options available to minimize their presence and ability to reproduce around your home.
With the recent outbreaks of the mosquito-transmitted West Nile virus and Zika virus in South Florida, Native Pest Management has helped educate the public regarding mosquito control and prevention through various community outreach efforts.
In2Care Mosquito Traps
Around the world, the Aedes moquito is spreading Dengue, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever and Zika virus in tropical regions like South Florida. Aedes mosquito are difficult to control since they divide their eggs over various small and hard to find breeding sites, and they have in some areas because resistant to chemical insecticides.
The In2Care Mosquito Trap attracts and kills these Aedes mosquitoes with novel and green ingredients that target both larvae and adults. The real benefit of these traps are that their effectiveness is not limited to the traps themselves, but control extends to the surrounding area.
Gravid female mosquitoes are attracted to the traps we place on your property, and once landing in the trap they fly out carrying the bioactives that are contained within the trap.
These mosquitoes then spread the larvicide powder within the trap to areas of standing water on your property and neighboring properties, which kills mosquito larvae and stops them from reproducing in standing water in the area surrounding your home. Within a few days, the original mosquitoes that went into the trap die before transmitting any diseases.

Mosquito Control Fogging Treatments
If you found this page, you are likely wondering if it is even possible to get rid of mosquitoes for good. As a South Florida native, trust me, I had the same thoughts when I grew up in the area.
While 100% of mosquitoes cannot ever be eliminated, we can certainly greatly reduce the number of them surrounding your home so that you may enjoy being outside again.
Mosquitoes lay their eggs in slow moving or stagnant water, and eliminating such conditions can drastically improve your chances of controlling populations around your home.
By draining tires, unclogging gutters, and eliminating other slow or standing water sources, you may just be able to make a dent in the local mosquito population.
While reducing standing water in the area will help, this likely won’t be enough to stop the daily mosquito bites.
This is why every mosquito treatment we perform includes the application of biorational larvicides (organic and harmless to people, pets, birds, and fish) in areas of standing water. This will prevent mosquitoes’ ability to breed in treated areas for up to 30 days.
In addition to our monthly larvicide application, we will apply a combination of Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs) and micro-encapsulated insecticides through a backpack fogger, to discourage mosquitoes that breed in neighboring properties from seeking shelter in your landscape.

Natural Mosquito Control Options
When it comes to mosquito control, there are a ton of do-it-yourself products that claim to be the most effective tool for mosquito control. While some of these products may help, they most likely will only provide temporary relief.
Citronella Candles – While there are studies that claim citronella candles can repel mosquitoes from the vicinity where they are lit, this method of mosquito control will likely only be temporary and protect a small area. It simply does not produce enough smoke or aroma to deter most mosquitoes.
Bug Zappers – Contrary to popular belief, mosquitoes will not be attracted to bug zappers. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide and water vapor that mammals exhale, making you the target, not the light. Bug zappers are much more likely to be effective against flies and moths.
