Organic Mosquito Control for Your Yard

Posted by Mosquito Squad

They’re baaaack! Yes, I mean mosquitoes. Temperatures are rising again, so these pesky bugs are too. Several of our Mosquito Squad locations are already providing mosquito control for our clients.

While our traditional barrier protection program is our most common service, we do provide an natural/organic option for interested clients.

Our organic mosquito mist is made of up essential oils and does work differently than our traditional barrier treatment. While it eliminates adults mosquitoes on contact, the organic mist acts a repellent instead of eliminating mosquitoes through their eating habits. Our traditional mist is ingested by the mosquito when it feeds on plant material that has been treated, eliminating the pest. The organic mosquito mist repels them with its smell.

When first applied to the property, there is a slight botanical fragrance to the naturalmist. To a human’s sense of smell, the odor dissipates within a few hours of application, however, mosquitoes are much more sensitive to smell. The fragrance keeps them away.

Because the organic mosquito control breaks down in the natural elements more quickly, we at Mosquito Squad recommend reapplying the treatment every 14 days for continuous protection. For comparison’s sake, the traditional barrier treatment is reapplied every 21 days usually.

While no mosquito control company can promise to eliminate all mosquitoes from your property, Mosquito Squad’s organic mist does cut down on your mosquito population significantly. We tell our clients to expect a 70-75% decrease in the number of mosquitoes on your property after the mist has been applied (the traditional mist eliminates 85-95% of the nuisance and dangers of mosquitoes).

Professional organic mosquito control is a great way to treat your yard. Like always, we at Mosquito Squad suggest ridding your yard of any standing water to help cut down on mosquitoes on your property as well.

If you have any questions on the mosquito control options in your area, please contact your local Mosquito Squad office.
