How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?

Even the strongest, most effective mosquito treatments often need to be reapplied after a certain amount of time in order to remain effective. For the most part, mosquito treatments last for 4–8 weeks. There are a number of factors at play that determine how long a mosquito treatment will remain effective, including the weather, region, and the size of the mosquito population.

If you are working with a professional mosquito control expert, you can trust they will determine when and how often your home needs to be treated again for mosquitoes. This way, you can trust your backyard will have continual coverage against mosquitoes throughout the mosquito season in Georgia.

Do I Need Multiple Mosquito Treatments?

Especially in our region where mosquitoes are heavy in the summer, more than one mosquito treatment is needed to provide ongoing protection throughout the season. After about a month’s time, the repellent that was applied will begin to degrade, therefore weakening the barrier around your yard. Rather than let the repellent fade away, it’s important to have your yard retreated to continue protecting you and your family from mosquitoes until the fall and winter months.

How to Prevent Mosquitoes During Mosquito Season

If there is a gap between your mosquito treatments, it’s important to do your part in ensuring the treatment remains effective. Here’s how to keep mosquitoes away between treatments:

  1. Inspect your yard every week during mosquito season to look for signs of activity.
  2. Tip over any containers that have accumulated standing or stagnant water.
  3. When spending time outside, use a fan to discourage mosquitoes from gathering.

Mosquito Treatment Timeline in Georgia

In our region, mosquito treatment should begin in the spring, usually in March or early April. After a thorough inspection, your yard will be treated. From there, your professional mosquito exterminator will work with you to determine when another treatment will be necessary. This could be anywhere from 4–8 weeks after the initial repellent application. If during the first month you notice the repellent is not effective, it’s important to always reach out to your exterminator for assistance in controlling the problem.
