Will Your Mosquito Control Spray Wash Away?

Author: Mosquito Squad of North Shore

Our Chelmsford area residents have received quite a bit of rain lately due to Tropical Storm Andrea moving up the East Coast.  Many of our Middlesex County customers have called wondering if our mosquito control barrier yard spray washes away or dilutes when there is heavy rain.  The answer is no.  The spray will kill adult mosquitoes and ticks on contact while the dried residue will help protect you and your family for up to 21 days.

Calling a mosquito control professional to eliminate mosquitoes in your yard is an important step in protecting your family and pets. There are also things that you can do as a Massachusetts homeowner to prevent mosquitoes from being interested in your yard.  A mosquito only needs the tiniest bit of water in which to breed.  Something as small as a bottle cap full of water can be the perfect egg laying location.  It takes as little as 48 hours for mosquito eggs to hatch, given

the perfect conditions.  It is important to toss standing water from things within your yard.  Items such as birdbaths, dog bowls, children’s toys and tarps can collect rain water.

Mosquitoes love a warm humid environment.  Many people notice the prevalence of mosquitoes after a rain in the summer time. Our awareness of seeing mosquitoes during warm weather after a rain can increase concern about your own treated yard.  Never fear, our mosquito and tick control barrier yard spray is guaranteed to last 21 days before needing another scheduled spray.  If for any reason you think that the spray is not doing the job we will return for a re-spray at no charge.  Mosquito Squad of North Shore guarantees your satisfaction in mosquito and tick control for your yard.
