Mosquito Control Urgent as Virginia Faces Worst Season: Diamond Exterminators Provides Relief

Diamond Exterminators

This year, mosquitoes are proving to be a bigger nuisance than ever, particularly in Virginia. Multiple cities in Virginia have made the top list for the worst mosquito problems, with Norfolk ranking in the top 25 worst cities for mosquitos. Diamond Exterminators, a leader in pest control services, is stepping up to help residents combat this growing issue with their comprehensive mosquito control services. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the total human disease count of West Nile Virus (WNV) in 2023 was over 2,400, with 47 states, including Virginia, reporting cases. Experts warn that the problem could be even worse this year due to the mild and wet winter, making mosquito control more crucial than ever. Connor Eason, Vice President of Diamond Exterminators, commented, “We recognize the heightened problems mosquitoes are causing this year. Balancing a treatment program that effectively controls mosquitoes while protecting pollinators is crucial. Significant advances in mosquito control have introduced safe alternatives. However, effective control involves more than just spraying; a skilled exterminator can also help you find simple ways to reduce the mosquito population and recommend natural alternatives.” Diamond Exterminators not only offers advanced mosquito treatment programs but also provides valuable tips for homeowners to reduce mosquito populations in their yards. Here are some expert tips from Diamond Exterminators: 1. Eliminate Standing Water Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, so regularly emptying water from flowerpots, birdbaths, and gutters can significantly reduce their numbers. 2. Maintain Your Yard: Keep grass and shrubs trimmed to minimize resting areas for mosquitoes. 3. Use Natural Repellents: Plant mosquito-repelling plants such as citronella, lavender, and marigolds. 4. Install Screens: Ensure all windows and doors have screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home. 5. Utilize Mosquito Traps: Strategic placement of mosquito traps can help reduce the mosquito population around your home. As mosquito problems continue to rise, Diamond Exterminators remains committed to providing safe and effective solutions for the community. Their comprehensive approach to mosquito control ensures that residents can enjoy their outdoor spaces without the constant nuisance of mosquitoes.

Snapchat Releases New Teen Safety Measures

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/7Hv0EHNRJ_g The digital world can be a challenge to navigate, and helping keep teens safe online is not just a priority—it’s a necessity. Snapchat is working to make its app even safer—now expanding a range of features to help keep Snapchat a place where people can be comfortable expressing themselves with the friends they know in real life. These extra protections for young people are more than a tech upgrade—they’re part of Snapchat’s ongoing commitment to building tools to help users connect with friends in a safe, secure way. Rachel Hochhauser, Snap’s Head of Safety Operations Outreach, conducted a nationwide media tour on June 25th to discuss these new features. Topics and features she discussed included: · Expanded In-app Warnings Teens will now see a warning message if they receive a chat from someone who’s been blocked or reported by others or is from a region where the teen’s network isn't typically located – signs that the person may be a stranger. · Simplified Location-Sharing Expansion of reminders to make sure Snapchatters are always up to date on which friends they’re sharing their location with on the Snap Map. · Enhanced Friending Protections These protections prevent certain suspicious friend requests from getting to teens in the first place, further reducing teens’ ability to connect with people they may not know in real life. · Blocking Improvements Improvements aim to prevent bullying and repeated harassment by limiting outreach from any new accounts created by someone who’s been blocked.
