Mosquito Squad in St. Petersburg-Clearwater specializes in properly using pesticides in a safe and environmentally-conscious manner.
Mosquito Control in Florida
A period barrier spray is the most popular form of mosquito control because it uses a combination of EPA-approved repellents to kill 176 species of mosquitoes. This includes the Aedes aegypti, the mosquito known to carry the majority of mosquito-borne illnesses. The barrier spray is applied around the entire perimeter of your property, on all standing vegetation, and in areas where your family spends time regularly like the deck or pool.
The spray used in the period barrier eliminates existing mosquitoes on contact and the continues to form an invisible barrier around your home to keep new mosquitoes from entering. This eliminates up to 90 percent of all mosquitoes over a 21-day period. As long as the barrier is reapplied every three weeks, mosquitoes will never have a chance to sneak back into your property.
