Do You Have a Mosquito Problem?
Mosquitoes are flying insects that are found all over the world. Approximately 200 species exist in the U.S. alone. They may seem like a mere nuisance, but many experts consider them to be the most deadly disease vector known.
Mosquitoes are responsible for the spread of many infectious diseases, such as encephalitis, malaria, and West Nile virus in humans and heartworm in dogs.

Mosquitoes & Ticks Are More Than a Nuisance
Mosquitoes and ticks aren’t your average pests.
What Does It Eat?
Adults feed on plant nectar, and the adult female feeds on blood.
Where Does It Hide?
Larvae are found in standing water – puddles, ponds, bird baths, sewers, ditch drains, clogged gutters. Adults will rest on the underside of leaves, in tree cavities, and in other moist areas during the day. They become most active at dawn and dusk.
What Can It Do to Me?
Mosquitoes are the most medically important of all pests. In many African and Asian countries, mosquitoes transmit deadly and debilitating diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, dengue, filariasis, and many forms of encephalitis.
In the U.S., mosquitoes in the genus Culex are the most important species for transmitting West Nile virus. They’re also capable of transmitting eastern equine encephalitis and St. Louis encephalitis. Learn more about mosquitos from our mosquito fact guide.
How Does Mosquito Control Treatment Work?
An insecticide spray is strategically administered to areas where mosquitoes breed and congregate, effectively disrupting their life cycle and reducing their presence. Mosquitoes typically breed in standing water, so we often target areas like stagnant ponds or any receptacles that can hold water.
We also spray around the perimeter of the property, concentrating on shaded areas, tall grass, and shrubbery where mosquitoes like to hide.
The effectiveness of mosquito control treatment largely depends on the specific product used and environmental conditions. It generally works immediately, but the treatment can take up to 24 hours to become fully effective.
Homeowners can typically expect the spray to work for several weeks before needing a reapplication. However, the exact duration can vary based on factors such as weather conditions and mosquito activity in the area.
When Is the Best Time To Spray for Mosquitos?
Determining the best time to spray for mosquitoes is essential for maximizing the treatment’s efficiency. Typically, we recommend starting the treatments in the spring when mosquito activity begins to rise.
Regular maintenance throughout the warm seasons is crucial to keep the mosquito population in check. In regions with particularly high mosquito activity, it’s best to call for services early in the season and maintain a regular treatment schedule to ensure optimal results.
