If you’re looking for professional mosquito control services in DC, Maryland or Northern Virginia, you’ve come to the right place. Miche Pest Control provides residential and commercial mosquito control services throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.
Residential Tick & Mosquito Control
Mosquitoes can be active year round, especially in urban areas, but are most commonly encountered during the warmer months of the year, when the air temperature exceeds 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the species, they may hibernate through the winter as adults, or as eggs in “diapause.” When temperatures start to rise and rain picks back up in the spring, adult mosquitoes (depending on the species) and eggs in diapause pick up right where they left off. To take back control of your yard, we recommend our Monthly Tick & Mosquito Control plan.
Monthly Tick & Mosquito Control
Our most popular mosquito control service, our Monthly Tick & Mosquito Control plan is designed to eliminate adult ticks and mosquitoes, and help prevent their return. Services are performed every 3 to 4 weeks to keep pest populations at bay, but if you need additional service in between regularly scheduled visits, just let us know! We’ll re-treat affected areas as needed, at no additional cost.
