Should I Treat Mosquitoes Myself?Posted by Mosquito Squad
December 20, 2023
Should controlling pests be added to your to-do list for the weekend? Absolutely not! We all try to learn and make projects for ourselves, however managing pests should be left for the professionals at Mosquito Squad. Here are 3 great reasons why:
In-store ingredients are not the same as the active ingredients at most pest control companies.
While it may be tempting to try to treat pests yourself, store-bought products can be ineffective and expose you, your family and your pets to harmful chemicals unknowingly. At Mosquito Squad, we use a synthetic derivative of the chrysanthemum flower otherwise known as a pyrethroid. Although pyrethroids can be found in products such as pet shampoos and sprays, lice shampoos and household insecticides, you won’t find the product itself at your local home improvement store.
Even if you are able to get a hold of the product, you may apply it incorrectly.
This is why we have professionally trained technicians you can trust to safely apply these products for you! Mosquito Squad Management mixes the correct amount of product, while our technicians who have received formal training and state licensing effectively treat your property.
Don’t add more to your to-do list!
Attempting to treat mosquitoes, fleas, flies and ticks yourself could be a very time consuming activity. We can treat your property within a 15 minute timeframe and after a short 30-45 minute dry time, you are free to enjoy your outdoor activities!
