For extra protection, for a small additional cost, our technicians will install the In2Care Mosquito Station. This trap lures mosquitoes in and contaminates them with a special slow killing larvicide. This allows the infected mosquitoes to spread the larvicide throughout other breeding grounds so that they aren't just killed inside the trap, but also in surrounding areas. The In2Care station:

  • Kills Asian Tiger and Culex mosquitoes
  • Kills mosquito larvae and pupae inside the station & in other breeding areas
  • Reduces the risk of mosquito-borne virus transmission
  • Field validated & published results
  • Uses safe ingredients and is environmentally friendly
  • Works in the rain
  • Pet friendly
  • Provides effective 24/7 protection from mosquitoes in the trap and in surrounding areas

Our Mosquito Control Program ensures your backyard is a comfortable place for you, your family, and friends to enjoy!
