Reduce Standing Water
Mosquitos breed in water so the first line of defense is reducing, or eliminating, standing water. Consider things like children’s sandboxes, plastic toys, downspouts, planters, rain barrels, pools and even dog bowls. Other potential problem areas can be things such as tarps, gutters and flat roofs. If a tarp is being used, make sure it is stretched tightly or is peaked in order to allow water to drain from it.
Treating a yard or area to control or eliminate mosquitos is called barrier spraying. Using only environmentally safe products we will spray foliage and wooded areas where mosquitos (and ticks) live and feed. This will eliminate the pests and protect the area for weeks. This is the process we recommend for most yard types.
