That’s why we’ve rounded up our list of the best mosquito control services in Alexandria. We’re lucky to have a lot of great options here.
Mosquito Authority, based in Stafford, services the Alexandria area. But this is a nationwide franchise. Because mosquitoes are such a significant problem, mosquito franchises seem to be popping up everywhere.
Mosquito Joe of Northern Virginia
This is another local franchise that is part of a national company. Mosquito Joe began as a single location in Virginia Beach but has grown into a nationwide business.
Mosquito Squad of Northern Virginia
Another national franchise, Mosquito Squad has more than 200 locations and says to have more on the way. The company says that for the past 10+ years, it has provided U.S. residential homeowners and commercial property owners with mosquito control but understanding that it is a global issue, is moving into the international space.
Mosquito Shield of Northern Virginia
There’s obviously a trend here. A lot of the mosquito control companies in Alexandria, VA are franchises that are part of a national system. That’s also the case for Mosquito Shield which was founded in 2001 and grown all over the country.
Better Termite & Pest Control
Founded in 1968, Better Termite & Pest is a local, family-owned extermination business that doesn’t just deal with outside pests but inside ones as well. According to its website, the company offers pest control, rodent abatement, termite inspections, and mosquito control.
Kingstowne Lawn & Landscape
Of course, we also hope that you’ll add Kingstowne Lawn & Landscape to your list of possible mosquito control services in Alexandria, VA.
We are an independent, locally owned and operated company offering pest control. This grew organically from our successful lawn and landscape business. Our lawn and landscape customers were looking for a company that could offer pest control solutions that were both safe and effective after having poor results from other methods and companies that they had tried.
There are a few key ways in which we are different from these other mosquito control companies in Alexandria, VA.
How Does Kingstowne Compare to Other Mosquito Control Services in Alexandria, VA
Although we all treat mosquitoes, there are a few ways that Kingstowne differs from the other companies on this list.
Just the Right Size
One key difference is that we are not a national franchise. We are focused on and truly know our local market in Alexandria, Arlington, and Springfield, VA.
Our team members are active in the local community and therefore really understand the wants and needs of our customers and we find that makes a huge difference in giving them the “royal treatment” that we are famous for.
Exterior Pest Services Focused on the “Root Cause”
We’re also not an exterminator. That means we do not go inside the home or deal with interior problems like rodents. However, our exterior solutions are effective at keeping outside pests from entering the home.
In terms of our mosquito control services, a key differentiator between us and other companies is the fact that we focus on getting to the root cause of the problem, which is addressing the breeding grounds. We’ll go the extra measure and seek out any areas of standing water on your property (like toys, buckets, wheelbarrows, and other items left on the property that may be collecting water).
We also offer gutter cleaning, which we find most companies do not. But dirty gutters are a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. If your gutters are clogged with debris it won’t matter how many times you spray, these pests will just keep coming. We’ve been told that most companies are focused on just frequently spraying and are not concerned with getting to the bottom of the reason mosquitoes keep returning.
Comprehensive Service Offerings
Finally, a big difference that homeowners appreciate is that unlike many of these other mosquito control companies in Alexandria, VA, we are tied to a lawn and landscape company that offers comprehensive services.
That allows us to offer you more than just pest control.
Many of our clients tell us that they find it incredibly convenient that they can have one overall company handle so many of their outdoor services—particularly a company that they’ve really gotten to know and trust.
Your Wise Choice in Mosquito Control in Alexandria, VA
When it comes to getting back to spending time outdoors with your friends and family, you want to feel confident that you’ve chosen a locally-owned company that can truly handle your mosquito problem. The last thing that you want is to invest money in a solution that doesn’t work very well, and find out later that your local franchise company isn’t even owned by the same people anymore (it happens).
Don’t be left feeling disappointed. By making a wise choice you’ll be able to take back control of your property. Instead of feeling as though you can’t spend time outside, you’ll be able to get back to enjoying your outdoor areas to the fullest.
