How Does Mosquito Treatment Work?

There are many types of mosquito treatment, but one of the most popular – and one we recommend here at Active – is barrier treatment. In addition to being highly effective, barrier treatment is a targeted and safe approach to getting rid of mosquito problems.

When you call Active for mosquito control treatment, here’s what you can expect.

Mosquito Treatment Process

Getting the most out of your mosquito treatment requires some planning and strategy. Here’s how we ensure you get the most effective treatment possible:

  • First, we thoroughly inspect your yard. Your mosquito exterminator will look at areas in your backyard for potential mosquito breeding grounds and other vulnerabilities that can lead to mosquito problems. 
  • From there, we’ll craft a custom mosquito treatment to address your unique needs.
  • With treatment applied, we’ll recommend ways you can help prevent them from coming back.

Why Is Barrier Treatment So Effective?

  • A barrier treatment allows an exterminator to provide controlled, targeted treatments to mosquito hot spots and unique areas around your property.
  • In addition to controlling active adult mosquitoes, barrier treatments also prevent future mosquitoes from emerging by disrupting the breeding process.
  • Barrier treatments can last up to two months depending on the treatment level. Your yard can be re-treated if and when needed.

Is Mosquito Treatment Safe?

Yes, the vast majority of pest control safety mishaps come from untrained people doing their own treatment with products they haven’t used before. When a professional mosquito control expert provides service, they’re using products they’ve been trained on and have used countless times to great success.

If you work with a mosquito exterminator using an EPA-approved product, rest easy knowing you and your family have nothing to worry about with your mosquito treatment.

Are Mosquito Treatments Dangerous to Plants?

Professional mosquito treatments are not dangerous to your plants. Your technician will apply them in a way that there’s nothing to worry about. If you have any concerns, feel free to bring them up. We’re always happy to listen. 

Once again, applying your own mosquito treatment is a greater danger to the health of your plants. To make sure your plants are safe, always follow these guidelines:

  1. When buying any store-bought products, look for products that have been approved by the EPA.
  2. Always carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions when applying any mosquito treatment.
  3. Think twice about DIY treatments. Always contact your local mosquito exterminator for assistance.

Is Mosquito Spray Safe For Pets and People?

“Mosquito spray” can refer to insecticide and repellent. To be clear, people and pets should not be exposed to insecticides. These can be highly toxic. Your technician will inform you if there are any areas you should avoid and for how long after your treatment.

Mosquito repellent is approved for use by the FDA. That said, some people are more sensitive to others, so you should always test out how you react to products before applying them to large areas of your skin. As always, follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the label exactly.
