Mosquitoes can carry all sorts of diseases, even in Knoxville, TN. Horrible ailments such as the West Nile virus, dengue fever, yellow fever and the Zika virus are associated with mosquitoes. These nasty bloodsuckers can also cause encephalitis and malaria, while dogs, cats and horses in Tennessee are susceptible to heartworm. Without mosquito eradication, you’re taking an unnecessary risk.
You’ll understand mosquitoes can be harmless (save for nasty itching bites) and can also spread disease. Unfortunately, you’re never going to know what your Knoxville-based mosquitoes are carrying. Therefore, spraying for mosquitoes is essential.
Once March rolls around, we are effectively at the beginning of mosquito season in the South. This is when getting rid of mosquitoes becomes essential, as females start laying eggs in bodies of water. We’re not talking so much about Knoxville rivers, and ponds, but puddles of standing and stagnant water – the kind you’d expect to see around your home.
Such activities can see mosquitoes congregate in huge numbers, especially if that body of water is in your yard. They will typically hide from the sun on the underside of foliage and make their move once it is cooler. Our mosquito exterminators are skilled in locating mosquito hotspots and places they like to gather and act accordingly.

There is only one foolproof method of outdoor mosquito control – calling Waynes. Removing stagnant water and other sources of standing water, such as trash can lids, AC drip pans, birdbaths, foundations and filling in potholes will help remove the desirability of your home. Trimming back foliage and places where mosquitoes can hide during the day will help, too. However, you’ll need Waynes’ assistance to ensure that they don’t swarm and come back. While this is handy outdoors – it doesn't solve issues indoors.
