Often considered the bane of summertime outdoor activities, mosquitoes have proven to be quite a bit more than just a nuisance pest. Their bite, along with causing intense itching to the host, can transmit various diseases and viruses. They serve as vectors of some of the more important diseases of birds, humans and other animals. The diseases include arbovirus, Yellow Fever, West Nile, encephalitis, and avian malaria, to name a few. Other mosquitoes impacting our environment are infecting hosts with the Zika virus, with local infestations expected in the coming year. It is important to determine, where possible, the potential nesting sites of mosquitoes. If they can be minimized or eliminated, it will significantly reduce the impact of this bothersome pest.

What can I expect if I am interested in having my yard treated for mosquitoes? What areas of my property need to be treated?

Treatments are completed by inspecting for conducive conditions, then treating the general perimeter of the structure with a light application of residual insecticide. This is applied to areas where mosquitoes will land or harbor as adult flyers. Full yard broadcasting of insecticides us usually not recommended, but rather treating shrubbery and landscaping for resting insects.

If having a treatment done on my property, will this keep mosquitoes from entering the property overall?

Since mosquitoes use air currents and breezes to facilitate traveling any distances, we cannot guarantee you a mosquito free environment. However, if our protocol is followed, you should see a distinct improvement.

Are there any restrictions that could limit my ability as a homeowner to have a treatment done to my property? If my property has an open pool, well, or fish pond?

Open water areas, such as swimming pools, fish pond, bird baths parks or school grounds must be protected from any overspray during treatment. We take great care to protect against any overspray or contamination of these areas.

How often should a treatment be applied to my property? Is this an annual treatment or an ongoing process?

Mosquito treatments can vary in frequency. Temperature and humidity adversely affect the insecticide’s lifespan.   These conditions can also increase amount of pest pressure due to faster insect growth cycle. Normally, an application can be expected to last three weeks to a month and a half.
