In2care Mosquito Trap
Getting rid of mosquitoes with mosquito traps is an excellent way to keep your backyard mosquito-free and it is considered a green, environmentally friendly product.
The In2Care Mosquito Trap lures and contaminates Aedes mosquitoes with a special slow-killing larvicide. Once infected, these mosquitoes will spread to other hard-to-find breeding sites so that mosquito larvae are not only killed inside the trap but also in its vicinity. This is combined with a biological adulticide that kills the contaminated mosquito after a few days to prevent her from transmitting any viruses like Dengue or Zika virus. In this way, the product kills the mosquitoes and their offspring, so that populations are reduced and disease transmission risks are lowered significantly.
Mosquito trapping is one of our most popular services We professionally install In2Care Mosquito Traps for residential and commercial mosquito population control at Buzz Kill.

Wondering How To Treat Mosquito Bites?
Mosquitoes can be a huge problem for homeowners and businesses with sprawling backyards. Standing water, shaded areas and low-lying spots are natural habitats for these nuisance bugs because their eggs require humidity. These areas become havens for insects and hellacious for residents without mosquito control systems.
Bug bites usually cause skin inflammation that is red, raised and very itchy. Excessively scratching this bite risks infection as well. Luckily we have some remedies that will help provide temporary relief:
- Apply a cold wet compress to the area to ease discomfort.
- Apply anti-itch creams such as Calamine as needed to help prevent scratching.
- Use anti-inflammatory creams like cortisone to ease the inflammation
- For severe reactions or multiple bug bites sleep-inducing antihistamines like Benadryl work wonders.
- For antihistamines with fewer sedative properties, Claritin, Allegra, and Zyrtec might offer more relief.
- Consult your child’s pediatrician about which products are safe and what dosage they will need.
We also have some preventive measures to reduce the risks from scratching. This includes keeping fingernails cut short to prevent scratching, wearing long pants and long sleeves&emdash;if temperature permits&emdash;and installing window screens and using insect repellent.

Commonly Asked Questions About Mosquito Control
As long as you have places for them to play hide and seek, mosquitoes won’t want to leave. One of the most effective ways to reduce mosquito populations in your yard is to eliminate their breeding sites. Mosquitoes require standing water to lay their eggs and complete their life cycle. Here’s how to reduce their breeding sites:
-Remove standing water: Inspect your yard for buckets, flower pots, bird baths, or other objects that collect and hold rainwater. Empty them and store them away from the elements.
-Maintain gutters: Clogged gutters and drains trap water, providing an ideal breeding site for mosquitoes. Keep your gutters clean and ensure proper drainage.
-Repair leaks ASAP: Fix leaks, dripping outdoor faucets, or broken sprinkler heads as soon as possible to avoid puddles on your landscape. Remember, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in the tiniest water sources – as small as a bottle cap.
-Refresh outdoor water features: If you have ornamental water features like bird baths or fountains, clean and replace the water several times weekly. Similarly, replace the water in outdoor pet bowls daily. Also, consider adding Mosquito Dunk’s tablets to your water features to prevent larvae development.
-Maintain swimming pools: A well-maintained and properly chlorinated swimming pool prevents mosquitoes from breeding in the water.
-Cover containers: Use lids or covers for rain barrels and outdoor trash cans.
-Fill tree holes and voids: Some tree species have cavities that hold water. Fill these voids or opt for professional tree removal services to eliminate mosquito breeding sites from your property.
-Reduce resting sites by thinning out bushes and shrubs, eliminating leaf litter, and maintaining your lawn.
