Experts say June, July, and August are the months mosquitoes are the most active due to warmer temperatures. The pests are known to transmit the West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses in humans and heartworm disease in pets. We recommend you apply insect repellent before going outside, wear long sleeves and pants outside, empty standing water from containers, and clean gutters regularly. These measures will aid in retroactively dealing with the existence of these pests on your property, but the best way to deal with this issue is proactive mosquito control services in Atlanta.
