More Rains Means More Mosquitoes...NOOO!

Author: Mosquito Squad of South Central Texas

With as much rain as the South Central Texas area has seen over the last three weeks, it is safe to say that mosquito season will likely follow! As standing water accumulates in your yard, female mosquitoes lay their eggs. Over the course of 10 days the eggs develop and are ready to hatch. Unfortunately for us what this means is more water, more mosquitoes.

Not only are mosquitoes a flying nuisance that bite and bother you, they are extremely difficult to get rid of in your yard, especially if you’re living near standing water such as swamps, marshes or ponds. But, we are here to tell you that there is a solution!

At Mosquito Squad, we provide a barrier treatment around your yard and home that will help eliminate 80-90% of your mosquito population and an even greater elimination for ticks.

Here's How It Works

Our licensed Squad technicians will treat the foliage surrounding your property and focus on the key areas where mosquitoes breed, feed and rest. Focusing on treating surfaces that include shrubbery and foliage (avoiding flowers), around and underneath decks and patios, fences, fire pits, your home’s foundation, tall grass and low hanging vegetation will help eliminate the mosquitoes that have found your yard to be their sanctuary.

The best part about the treatment is that it’s not just a temporary fix. The barrier treatment lasts up to 3 weeks, which means you can enjoy your backyard night-after-night with the family. When mosquitoes attempt to rest on these treated surfaces, the residual spray will eliminate them on contact.

As you might imagine, some mosquitoes might wander into your yard and bite you before resting on a treated surface but we guarantee you will find that the mosquito population has been greatly reduced.
