Contact ACME Exterminating and Take Back Control of Your Yard Today!

As summer approaches, families head outdoors, whether it be to the park, beach, or just our backyard. With summer comes a non-stop proliferation of mosquito infestations that not only give us annoying, and itchy, bite wounds, but can also be quite deadly in some cases. The mosquito is an airborne insect that lives on blood meals from humans and animals and can also transmit many diseases. Many organizations consider the mosquito to be the #1 public health threat in the world. These tiny flying insects have been known to carry diseases into previously uninfected areas. Mosquitoes can carry infectious viruses such as the very recent West Nile virus, Zika virus, and cause diseases such as malaria and parasitic heartworm in our pets.

Although not every mosquito is carrying a disease-causing microorganism, the risk is still there, which is why we should limit exposure to our pets, children, and ourselves to these tiny flying insects.

ACME Exterminating's approach to residential and commercial pest services in Manhattan is different than many other companies. Essentially, it is better for you. We employ an Integrated Pest Management System (IPM) that explores all options for residential and commercial properties before we begin to spray pesticides around your home. We understand that your mosquito problem is unique to you and our exterminator will decide whether to approach the mosquito problem with chemical, mechanical, biological, or environmental measures. Schedule an appointment with us today so we can begin to plan an extermination plan and take back control of your yard. ACME Exterminating will identify infestation sources and advise you on proper sanitary practices and storage measures to prevent them from returning.

Can mosquito pest control services get rid of mosquitoes? While no one can completely get rid of mosquitoes from an area, there are tips and best practices to help reduce the mosquito villages that are near and around you.

Lastly, don't fret! ACME Exterminating is here to help. We serve all of the surrounding areas of NYC, including Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and North Jersey. Contact Us today to schedule an inspection. It's time to live free outdoors again!

How can I get the most out of my service?

Good pest control starts with a partnership and commitment to addressing all potential threats. To get the most out of your program, please note the following recommendations:

  • Do not allow water to pool in open areas. Fill in low-lying areas to prevent water collection
  • Free all gutters and open pipes of debris that may allow rainwater to collect.
  • Ensure that pipes, faucets, and any part of your irrigation system are not leaking.
  • Store buckets and containers that you are not currently using upside down.
  • Keep shoes and socks on as much as possible. Those pesky mosquitoes become even more annoying at night.
  • Cut back on alcoholic beverages and reduce your candy intake. These are known to attract mosquitoes.
  • Wear long sleeves and pants at night./li>
  • Night lights may attract an assortment of insects. Bug zappers are a primary concern.
  • Reduce your use of perfume. As mentioned previously, sweet odors may attract mosquitoes.
  • Maintain your lawn. Mow your grass regularly, do not overwater, and prevent any sources of water collection.
  • Repair any holes or tears in screen doors, window covers, or nets around your home where you do not want mosquitoes to enter.

The service technician is totally reliable, thorough and responsive to our needs - and a nice guy. My only complaint is that they bill us in the beginning of the month, but our regular service is in the second half.
