Holiday Prep: Treating Your Property Before Hosting Holiday Events

Author: Mosquito Squad of St. Petersburg - Clearwater

You deserve to take advantage of the mild Florida climate by hosting holiday events in your backyard, but you don’t want mosquitos to ruin the occasion. Fortunately, it’s easy to treat your property for mosquitos in advance. By working with a professional mosquito control company, you can safely treat your outdoor space and enjoy holiday festivities without a second thought.

Why Do Mosquitos Matter?

Children, adults, and pets are all equally vulnerable to red, itchy mosquito bites, but it’s important to remember that mosquitos pose risks of disease as well. Mosquitos have a history of bringing disease from across the globe into Florida and spreading those diseases through bites. Pest control is key to keeping your family and friends safe.

Target Mosquitoes with a Periodic Barrier Spray

Not all mosquito control products are created equally. It is best to hire a company that uses a comprehensive system to prevent mosquitoes from returning to your property.

A periodic barrier spray is the first and most important mosquito control strategy because it uses a combination of EPA-approved repellents to kill 176 species of mosquitoes. 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.

This spray kills existing mosquitoes on contact and then continues to form an invisible barrier around your home to keep new mosquitoes from entering. It will eliminate 90 percent of all mosquitos over a 21-day period. As long as the barrier is reapplied every three weeks, mosquitos will never have a chance to sneak back into your property!

Consider Permanent Misting For Convenience

Permanent misting, meanwhile, automates periodic sprays. This system can be installed on your property by a pest control company and maintained on a yearly plan. Most systems include spray nozzles mounted around the perimeter of a home in the lawn or mounted to parts of the house or fence. EPA-approved repellents are sprayed from the system at preset intervals to ensure mosquitos never stand a chance.
