4 Things You Might Not Know That BugMaster Can Do

BUG_header_services_blog_useWhen BugMaster started in 1975, we definitely were a pest and termite control company only. However, over the decades we have grown as a company and in capability and expertise. Listed below are 4 areas BugMaster has added to our family of services. We feel that these services complement our core integrated pest control management and termite business.

1. Nuisance Wildlife & Animal Control
BUG_wildlife_services_blogOur expert nuisance wildlife/animal control technicians will first remove the wildlife from your home or business and then implement a prevention strategy to eliminate any future nesting or trespassing. These prevention strategies include the screening or closing all possible points of entry as well as modifying the conditions that attracted the wildlife initially.

The Most Common Nuisance Wildlife In The Mobile & Baldwin County Area:
•    squirrels
•    raccoons
•    opossums
•    skunks
•    rats
•    mice
•    birds

4. Moisture Barrier Installation
BUG_moisturebarrier_services_blogInstalling a residential moisture barrier and treatment for wood destroying fungus is something else we have added to our family of services. Usually installed under the crawl space of a home, this service helps with controlling the ground moisture and dampness. The barrier of polyethylene sheets will lower the average humidity levels under a structure and will aid in controlling the mustiness under your home as well as aid in pest control.

The Quickest And Easiest Way To Control Mosquitoes Around Your Yard

Fox10TV.com is reporting the first confirmed case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in the Mobile, Alabama area.

A Mobile resident has tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), lab reports confirm. The 66-year-old male patient remained hospitalized Friday in Mobile. He resides in the 36618 ZIP code of Mobile County.

Eastern Equine Encephalitis is one of the most severe mosquito-transmitted diseases in the United States with a mortality rate of approximately 33 percent, said Dr. Bernard Eichold, Health Officer of Mobile County. “It’s a very serious illness that can leave significant brain damage in survivors.”

Eastern Equine Encephalitis and other mosquito-borne viruses such as West Nile Virus are transmitted from bird to mosquito to bird. Mosquitoes can spread these viruses by feeding on the blood of infected birds and then biting another host animal or mammal such as a horse or human. Although humans and horses can become ill from the infection, the diseases cannot be spread from people or horses. The likelihood of transmission to humans can be decreased by avoiding mosquitoes. There is no vaccine available for humans, Eichold said.

Mosquitoes live and breed in damp areas, especially smelly, and static water.
Take these two simple steps to control the mosquito invasion of your yard and home.

BugMaster Mosquito Control Tips

1. Always close the lid of your garbage cans.

2. Always turn over your wheelbarrows and buckets

Anything that can collect and hold water is the perfect place for mosquitos to make a home. Take back your yard and try to decrease the static water and damp areas in your yard and around your house.

If you have any questions about mosquito control around your home and yard, or to schedule an appointment for our Pro Mosquito Home Treatment please contact your BugMaster tech today at bugmaster.com (http://www.bugmaster.com/contact-us/) or call 251.666.4402.
