How long does it take to do the barrier spray treatment and how long will it last?
A typical treatment will average about 20-30 minutes. Larger yards may take longer to treat. Each treatment lasts approximately 21 days, at which time our team will be there to treat your yard again.
Does anyone need to be home when the yard is treated? How will I know if the treatment was done if I’m not home?
No. As long as your yard is accessible and your pets are friendly, our technician can treat.
We do recommend that your pets are put away in the house because it is easier on our technicians. Our trained professionals will obtain any information pertinent to your needs when you sign up. Our technician will leave a door hanger upon completion of your treatment so you will know your yard has been serviced.
Do you service commercial accounts?
Yes. Our barrier sprays are a great solution for many commercial businesses such as restaurants, bars, patios, parks, campgrounds, public pools and playgrounds, sports fields, day-cares, outdoor wedding venues, schools festival sites and more.
Do you spray the grass?
Yes, only for a fleas and tick treatment which can be a separate service or add on to mosquito application. Mosquitoes do not seek shelter in the grass. Our goal in doing a pre-spray walk of the property is to seek out the “hot spots” where mosquitoes will be. The most common areas to find mosquitoes during the day include the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks and in damp shady areas of the property. We do recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season.
Can mosquitoes cause and spread disease?
Yes. Mosquitoes are the most formidable transmitters of disease in the animal kingdom. Several of the most severe diseases (human and other) spread by mosquitoes include Zika, malaria, encephalitis, yellow fever, dog heartworm, human elephantiasis, and West Nile virus. For more information visit our Mosquito Born Diseases section.
Do you install timed outdoor misting systems?
Not at this time as misting systems generally start around 5k depending on the size of the yard. We could treat your yard for over a decade for around the same price without the hassle of maintenance, repair, and the cost of the application.
Mosquito reducing suggestions…
Stagnant water becomes a breeding ground for mosquitos, anything that holds water must be drained on a regular basis ex:
Birdbaths, tires, decorative ponds without aeration, etc.
Walk your property on a regualar basis and make sure anything that will hold stagnant water has been removed from the yard.
