Farm life has its share of dangers, but none so potent as the dangers to your animals. Farm animals are among the most vulnerable to mosquito infestations. Mosquito infestations can lead to great sickness and even death for farm animals. And when it comes to your horses, the danger can be particularly acute.
For instance, barns and stalls can lack adequate air circulation and accumulate tremendous dust. This can lead to the proliferation of mosquitos in or near the stalls proper. There are many ways to mitigate these dangers, of course; these include installing fans in the aisle and screens on outside windows. You can also bring your horses inside at dusk, where mosquitoes are most likely to proliferate.
There is, however, another cost-effective solution you could try: Mosquito misting systems! At Texan Mosquito Systems, we can install your very own mosquito system on the perimeter of your land. Misting systems emit elements that prevent mosquitos from gathering around your area. Our misting systems are environmentally friendly, meaning that they eschew pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Thus, they pose no danger to humans and animals.
Our services include mosquito misting system installation, maintenance, and repair. Our team cleans, refills, and repairs your system to ensure it is working in tip-top shape. You can schedule monthly, bi-monthly, or custom visits based on your schedule and whatever works for you. So don’t hesitate to call us today to get started!
The Danger of Mosquitos
Mosquitoes encompass around 2,500 species. Chiefly, they are attracted to stagnant water, laying eggs on the surface. These eggs hatch into larvae that feed on aquatic algae and organic material. Once mature, they feed on the blood of their hosts’ skin. While they feed, they may ingest pathogens, which they then spread to other unfortunate victims.
Thus, mosquitos are the most easiest spreaders of dangerous diseases such as malaria, Zika, West Nile, Chikungunya, and dengue. During the summer months, mosquitos are the most active, so it behooves you to protect your horses from the threats of these critters.
Apart from our misting systems, there are other easy ways to mitigate their threat. Cutting tall grasses around the area, for instance, would help, as mosquitos are prone to hide in the tall grasses. If you have any leaky pipes and faucets, be sure to fix them right away; mosquitos are attracted to the damp. Stagnant, dirty water especially is their domicile. Filling tree stumps with sand or cement can also get rid of mosquitos.
