Our Mosquito Control Service
Our Unique Approach To Mosquito Control
Your mosquito control service starts with a thorough inspection of your property by a highly-trained technician on our team. Once the inspection is complete, we’ll provide you with a treatment plan that’s right for you. Our goal is to spot conditions conducive to their existence, tackle current infestations, and break the breeding cycle so you can enjoy your yard.
1. MOSQUITO INSPECTION
We’ll thoroughly inspect your property for signs of mosquito activity and identify breeding grounds. We’ll begin with the obvious areas (old tires, buckets, wheelbarrows, and clogged gutters) and empty water from them. We’ll also check flower pots and the saucers they sit in.
2. MOSQUITO BARRIER SPRAY
Mosquitoes are commonly found in trees, bushes, shrubs, and other heavily wooded areas because they feed on plant nectar. So we’ll use a backpack sprayer to target these areas with a growth regulator and insecticide. This treatment kills mosquitoes on contact and bonds to foliage, where it acts as a repellent for weeks to come.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our mosquito control service lasts 3-4 weeks on average. Of course, this depends on how often it rains and which treatment option you choose: our synthetic option lasts much longer than the eco-friendly alternative. So we recommend scheduling your treatments every 21 days during the warmer months to protect your family from mosquitoes.
Yes! Our mosquito control service is performed by thoroughly trained technicians who follow standard safety protocols to ensure your family (and four-legged friends) are safe before, during, and after your service. We also use a specialized product around ponds, vegetable gardens, and flowering plants, so we don’t harm any aquatic life or pollinators.
After we spray your yard for mosquitoes, you need to ensure the product is completely dry before going outside. Depending on a variety of factors, like outdoor temperatures and humidity, we recommend waiting at least 30 minutes. After this period, it is safe for you and your family to enjoy your deck, pool, and yard again.
