As a Greater Tampa area homeowner, there is nothing better than spending quality time outdoors with your friends and family. From backyard barbeques to morning coffee on the porch, your outdoor living space is your very own private oasis. However, when insects like mosquitoes find their way into your area, your yard can quickly turn into a stinging-insect frenzy.

Unlike most residential pests in Florida, mosquitoes—specifically the Aedes aegypti mosquito—hold the title of the world’s most dangerous insect due to their disease-transmitting capabilities. With the ability to carry and transmit yellow fever, malaria, Zika, West Nile, dengue, and chikungunya via their bites, this insect is not one you want hovering around. To learn more, visit The Florida Department of Health.

Unfortunately, if the proper preventative measures aren’t in place, your yard could become a haven for mosquitoes—especially because they can breed in numerous, difficult-to-reach areas of standing water all around your property. But, with a little help from your local Critter Control team and our advanced mosquito control applications, you can take advantage of your home’s exterior leisure spaces, worrying less about painful and potentially dangerous bites.

In2Care® Mosquito Traps: Helping to Protect Your Home

At Critter Control of Greater Tampa, we are in the business of helping to keep you and your family safe from mosquitoes by reducing mosquito populations. And, with the help of the In2Care® Mosquito Trap system in addition to our eco-conscious sprayed applications, we can do just that. Unlike any other product available, these treatments work in tandem with mosquitoes’ unique behavior and breeding cycles—which means both adult mosquitoes and larvae can be successfully reduced, and depending on the surrounding environment, potentially eliminated.

With the In2Care® system in place around your home, you can effectively reduce and even potentially prevent bites from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, as well as any other mosquito species that makes its way into your outdoor leisure areas. And, because these treatments do not require fogging applications, they are minimally invasive and use less chemicals than other mosquito control methods.

Applying The In2Care® Mosquito Trap System Around Your Home

Focusing on high-risk areas, our team will set In2Care® Mosquito Traps in shaded and vegetated areas around your property—ensuring they remain as out of sight as possible. Where they are visible, the trap simply looks like an outdoor speaker. (Each trap covers around 4,300 square feet, so the amount of traps used will be dependent on the size of your yard.) Once the traps are set with water, powdered gauze, and an odor lure, they still immediately start attracting mosquitoes in need of a breeding site.

Eliminating Mosquito Larvae

Specifically designed to target Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the odor lure inside each trap draws these insects towards a ring of gauze. This gauze is coated in a larvicide, as well as an insect-killing fungus that binds to the legs of mosquitoes using polarity. After breeding mosquitoes come into contact with the gauze, they will then move to lay their eggs on the water’s surface below—contaminating it with the larvae-killing powder.

When adult mosquitoes are finished laying eggs inside the trap, they will fly out with the larvicide powder still attached to their legs. As they hunt for new areas of standing water to lay new batches of eggs, they will unknowingly contaminate all of their breeding sites in your yard.

Be Gone, Biting Mosquitoes

As adult mosquitoes inadvertently contaminate their breeding sites, the insect-killing fungus slowly begins to penetrate their bodies. This fungus, which is safe for humans, pets, and beneficial insects, starts to make adult mosquitoes less active, which means they will have a reduced ability to bite. In addition, it works to inhibit the development of viruses in each mosquito’s stomach. After a few days of infection, each adult mosquito will die.
