Have you noticed an increase in mosquitoes around your property lately? With the copious amounts of rain and snow in California this year, there has been an uptick in mosquito activity. As we head into spring and summer, it's essential to take preventative measures to protect your family and home from these pesky insects.

Not only are mosquitoes a nuisance, but they also pose a health risk as they can transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus. The good news is that there is an effective solution to eliminate mosquitoes from your property - In2Care Mosquito Stations.

A Natural Solution - The In2Care Mosquito Station

The In2Care Mosquito Station is a novel and environmentally friendly solution that targets both larvae and adult mosquitoes. The station is made of durable recycled polypropylene components and consists of a lid, central tube, click-on interface, and reservoir.

In2Care Mosquito Stations attract female mosquitoes with an odor tablet in the water, where they land on a gauze strip that binds a mix of US-EPA-approved biological agents.

These include a growth regulator that kills larvae in the station and surrounding areas and a biological fungus that weakens and kills the mosquito before it can transmit diseases. The station's effectiveness extends to the surrounding area, making it an effective way to reduce mosquito populations and protect against potential health risks.

The In2Care Mosquito Stations are not available as a retail product as they are designed and registered for professional use. Give us a call or visit us online to get started.

Other Tips to Keep Mosquitos Away

To further protect yourself from mosquitoes, remember to:

  • Dump any standing water around your property. (bird baths, plastic pools, tree holes, containers)

  • Clean all gutters and downspouts. Leaves, twigs, and other organic matter can create standing water

  • Repair any broken window or door screens

  • Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts. Apply mosquito repellent to any exposed skin

  • Avoid being outside at dusk and dawn, as that is the peak of mosquito activity
