MOSQUITO MANAGEMENT & REMOVAL SERVICES
Mosquitos are dangerous because they can carry deadly diseases. Aside from that, they are extremely annoying and known to bite and lay hundreds of eggs at a time.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways our team can help you effectively manage mosquito populations. These mosquito control methods include:
- Creating a vegetative buffer surrounding your water feature to attract dragonflies, which prey on mosquitoes.
- Installing a fountain or aeration system. Mosquito larvae need still water, so creating movement in the water feature will help control mosquito life.

MIDGES MANAGEMENT AND TREATMENT
Midges are small flying insects that are known to bite people and animals. They are typically found near beaches, lakes, rivers, or creeks. Midge flies thrive in swampy areas. Midge flies are common near these types of waterbodies because they reproduce in water.
They are also attracted to areas with low water quality and excessive nutrient levels. Aside from being a nuisance, they can be hazardous to residents in the surrounding area. Here are more impacts of midge flies:
- Midges can collect on cars and other surfaces, causing damages and stains.
- Cause an unpleasant odor.
- Bites and red, itchy marks.
- Cause an upsurge in spider population since midges are food for spiders.
Effective midge control strategies that we can help you adopt:
- Ensure your water quality is balanced.
- Install mesh screens to prevent entry into homes.
- Strategically place CO2 traps.
- Ensure you have a number of predatory fishes to eat midge larvae.
- Install aeration system to increase levels of dissolved oxygen.
APPLE-SNAIL MANAGEMENT & TREATMENT
Apple snails are small freshwater snails that dramatically impact ecological areas because of their feeding habits and rapid reproduction. They eat large sums of vegetation and even other types of snails. By doing this, they affect the composition of nutrients in whatever waterbody they reside in.
They are amphibious creatures, meaning they can thrive both in and out of water. They are able to reproduce outside of their water column, which allows them to avoid predators. Because of this, it’s difficult to control their populations.
To remove apple snails from your waterbody:
- Install barriers and screens where water enters and leaves your waterbody.
- Seek out hydro-raking and harvesting services. These are physical approaches to removing invasive species. While they require a fair bit of labor, it is a safe way to remove apple snails without harming any other species in the water features.
