Actionable ways to keep your property pest-free.

As couples plan their dream weddings, the last thing they want to worry about is their special day being plagued by unwelcome guests such as mosquitoes and ticks. These tiny yet troublesome insects can quickly turn a romantic outdoor celebration into a buzzing nightmare. As a three-time best-selling author specializing in event planning and outdoor venues, I have dedicated years of research to help venues keep their properties mosquito and tick-free. In this article, we'll explore effective strategies and practical tips to ensure that wedding venues remain serene and pest-free.

  1. Identify Potential Breeding Grounds: First and foremost, it is crucial to identify and eliminate mosquito and tick breeding grounds within the wedding venue's premises. Standing water, such as ponds, fountains, or flower vases, can act as prime breeding sites for mosquitoes. Regularly inspect and clean these areas to prevent stagnant water accumulation. Ticks, on the other hand, tend to thrive in tall grasses and shrubs, so maintaining well-groomed lawns and gardens is...



Mosquitoes are not just pesky insects; they can also pose significant health risks due to the diseases they carry. Protecting your home from mosquitoes is crucial for maintaining a safe and comfortable living environment. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore proven strategies and techniques to mosquito-proof your home effectively. From simple preventative measures to advanced solutions, we've got you covered.

1.Eliminate Breeding Grounds

Mosquitoes thrive in stagnant water, making it essential to eliminate any potential breeding sites around your home. Here are a few key areas to focus on:

a. Empty and clean any standing water containers such as flower pots, buckets, and pet bowls on a regular basis. b. Ensure that gutters and downspouts are clean and free from debris to prevent water accumulation. c. Repair leaky outdoor faucets and hoses to prevent water pooling. d. Regularly maintain swimming pools and ponds by keeping them clean and treating them with appropriate chemicals.

2. Secure Doors and Windows

Ticks can be more than just a nuisance; they are known carriers of various diseases, including Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis. Conducting thorough tick checks after spending time outdoors is essential for preventing tick-borne illnesses. To ensure comprehensive tick checks, it is crucial to examine certain areas of your body more closely. In this blog post, we will discuss the top five places that people should examine when conducting tick checks.

  1. Scalp and Hair: Ticks often climb up from grass or shrubs and can easily attach themselves to your scalp or hair. To examine this area effectively, use a mirror or ask someone for assistance. Part your hair carefully and check your scalp thoroughly, paying close attention to the back of your head, behind the ears, and along the hairline.

  2. Underarms and Groin: Ticks tend to favor warm and moist areas of the body, making the underarms and groin prime spots for their attachment. Inspect these areas carefully, ensuring you lift your arms to examine the underarms and check the folds and creases in the...

Ticks are small, blood-sucking parasites that can be found in wooded areas, tall grass, and shrubs. They attach themselves to their host, usually a person or an animal, and feed on their blood. Ticks are not only a nuisance but also carry various diseases that can be dangerous for humans and pets.

Ticks are especially prevalent in New Jersey, where the warm, humid climate provides an ideal environment for them to thrive. As a result, it is important for families to take measures to protect themselves and their pets from ticks.

Tick Prvention Page.png

If you're worried about tick control and prevention in your area, it's important to understand when ticks are most active. Depending on where you live, common ticks may be active year-round, but generally peak in activity from April through September. As the weather warms up and people and animals become more active outdoors, the risk of tick bites and transmission of tick-related diseases like Lyme disease increases. Immature ticks, or nymphs, are responsible for the majority of tick bites, and their activity peaks from May to July. Knowing when ticks are most active is a key step in protecting yourself and your family from tick-related illnesses.

Effective tick prevention is essential to protect yourself and your family from the various diseases that ticks can spread. Ticks that carry the bacteria responsible for Lyme disease can lay up to 15,000 eggs before they die, and with no U.S. region free from the threat of ticks and tick-transmitted diseases, it is important to...

When it comes to small business investment opportunities, especially franchising, there's not many types of people that fit the ideal candidate quite like veterans. The reasons for them being an ideal fit for franchising, especially a service based franchise, can be boiled down to a few main points.

First, due to their prior experiences in the military, veterans have proven to be exceptional at having the discipline necessary to follow standard systems and procedures. This works out especially well in the world of franchising due to the fact that veterans are already buying into a system that has been proven to work, so all they must do is follow the guidelines that have already been tested to be effective and they will be well on their way to success in the world of franchise ownership.

Second, when it comes to a service based franchise (especially one like Your Mosquito Pros) you have the ability to run your business completely from the comfort of your own home. While this can be seen as a benefit to anyone that...

M34217 - Blog - Common Disease You Can Get From A Mosquito (1).jpg

Mosquitos are not just a nuisance; they can also be dangerous. If you don't take the proper mosquito control measures, you put yourself and your family at risk for more than just itchy and bothersome bites, such as contracting a mosquito-borne disease.

At Your Mosquito Pros, we can help you mosquito-proof your yard so you can enjoy your outdoor living space without worry. In this blog, we will look at the four most common diseases you can get from a mosquito.

In the past, mosquito seasons in New Jersey had reasonably rigid start and end dates (starting around May and ending around the beginning of October.) But over the past few years, precisely the last two, mosquito season has seemed to drag on longer than usual, thus extending the season for mosquito control companies. Despite how the past two years have gone, the question that needs to be answered is what should we expect for this coming season in New Jersey?

There are many ways to get rid of mosquitos, but which one is the best for you? A hybrid mosquito spray combines both organic and chemical methods to eradicate these pests. However, an organic spray relies on natural ingredients to achieve the same goal. Which is better for your New Jersey home? Your Mosquito Pros can help you decide!

When it comes to insect control, mosquito control, in particular, a lot of people seem to give up when it comes to preventing the bugs from encroaching on their properties and themselves. Although with no mosquito control plan (Integrated Management System) people are opening themselves up to vulnerabilities, there are still some actionable steps that can be taken if you want to improve not only the mosquito control on your property today but also for the future as well.

Tip 1: Remove Standing Water From The Property

-This is one of the most important steps that someone can take action on immediately to help improve the mosquito and insect control on their property. Mosquitos move through four stages in their life cycle: Egg, Larvae, Pupa, and Adult. However, a mosquito will not even have the chance to reach the later stages of its life if you remove as much standing water from your property as possible. In order for their life cycle to start, mosquitos lay their eggs in standing...

Despite mosquitos and ticks being one of the most well-known insects in not only the United States but also the world today, some facts about mosquitos are not as well-known and ultimately may surprise you. So for starters, what are some interesting facts about mosquitos that most don’t know?

1) Only Female Mosquitos Bite.

-Even though mosquitos tend to run rampant during the hotter months of the year and you would think that you’re getting bombarded from every angle, you’re actually only getting bitten by ½ of the total mosquito population. The reason being that only female mosquitos bite is because female mosquitos need a “blood meal”. If mosquitos do not have a blood meal, they are unable to lay eggs and keep their lineage going, thus why only the females who are actually laying the eggs are the ones that are biting you.

2) Mosquitos Use Carbon Dioxide To Find Hosts

-Mosquitos use a few different indicators to find a worthy host including body odor and sweat but one of their biggest radars is Carbon Dioxide. In a perfect world, humans wouldn’t emit...

As mosquitos and ticks become more and more apparent with the changing weather patterns of the world, it’s important to highlight some effective ways to improve mosquito and tick control on your own property. For starters, it’s important to take note of some of the easiest ways that we can hunker down on the rampant mosquito and tick issue. For starters, you can get a good start on mosquito and tick control just by changing the way you wear your t-shirt or sweatshirt.

One of the most common ways that mosquitos and ticks can infiltrate your body is by sneaking through the openings that your clothes present, such as at the bottom of your pant leg or the end of your sleeve. To combat this and provide more accurate mosquito and tick control, you want to make sure that your pants are tucked into your socks so there isn’t much room for ticks to enter. Another avenue that has been proven to help improve mosquito and tick control on a personal level, is to spray your...


If you bring up the words “mosquito control” or “mosquitos” I’d say that at least 9 out of 10 people will immediately know what you are talking about. However, if you mentioned the words “Integrated Pest Management” to people, I’d argue that the same 9 out of 10 would look at you in confusion. So, what is Integrated Pest Management, and how does it tie into mosquito control?

For starters, let’s discuss the actual definition of the term. Integrated Pest Management is defined as an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. In comparison to mosquito control, which is only accounting for a small portion of the actual pest management system as a whole, IPM involves making a comprehensive plan to help combat mosquitos and pests alike.

One of the components that you may see incorporated into an integrated pest management system, is an Action Threshold, which defines when pest control will need to begin based on environmental factors, Monitor and Identify, so they can actively determine the...

When the franchising concept was born in 1851 by Albert Singer and The Singer Sewing Machine Company, they probably had seldom idea what the concept would turn into today. Fast forward one hundred and fifty years later and there’s now 3,800 franchisors in the United States alone. With all these different concepts, it can be easy to lose sight of some of the most low-cost and profitable investment opportunities among the group, with one of the main oversights being none other than, Mosquito and Tick Control.

Most people when they think of franchising, associate the word with brands like Mcdonald’s, Subway or Burger King. However, these businesses are expensive ($500,000+) to buy into and ultimately most people don’t have that type of capital laying around. However, when you buy into a mosquito franchise, you can expect to invest anywhere from $33,345 - $170,000, a significant difference in monetary investment. With Your Mosquito Pros, we require less than $35,000 total investment to start your own...


No matter where you turn nowadays, it appears that everyone is talking about climate change. While the main focal point of this discussion is normally referencing the overall health of planet earth, it’s important to note some of the other side effects of an increased global temperature, specifically when it comes to mosquitos. A major side effect of a warmer climate is that it extends the mosquito season. The reason being is because mosquitos are unable to reproduce in extremely cold temperatures, so as the earth gets hotter then naturally the mosquito season would extend.

Another aspect that most would not think of is the actual range in which the mosquitos expand to. With a hotter core temperature, more areas are going to become warm enough to be able to harbor mosquitos, and thus their population is going to be developing in places previously uninhabitable to mosquitos. The question is, how can people prepare/mitigate this problem? For starters, it’s important to implement a system/strategy that can support properties for the long haul.

Something such as a...

As good as Your Mosquito Pros’ mosquito control is, the occasional mosquito still slips through the cracks and delivers a bite. So, what are the best ways to manage the bite before it becomes a nuisance? We’ve compiled a list of some of the most well-known home remedies below.

1) Oatmeal: Yes, oatmeal. Despite being primarily known as a breakfast food, oatmeal contains special compounds called avenanthramides that have been proven to have anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties. To make the blend, simply mix equal amounts of oatmeal and water together until it forms a thick paste. From there, apply to a washcloth and put on the bite for ten minutes then wipe the paste off.

2) Honey: At this point, it seems that there aren’t many things that honey can’t do/cure and mosquito bites are no different. Honey contains anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the swelling of the bite. On top of that, nobody wants to itch a bite covered in honey so that adds a bit of extra added motivation when it comes to not touching or irritating the...

Your Mosquito Pros Misting System

In the world of mosquito control, the question of how to get rid of mosquitoes was traditionally addressed by deploying a misting solution through a backpack sprayer. However, in more recent years, mosquito yard treatment and mosquito control as a whole have now introduced a more hands-off approach, that being mosquito control misting systems. With more options being introduced into the market of insect control, you may be wondering, which is the best option for me?
