We’ve all experienced those uninvited guests at the backyard barbecue. It seems like just as the weather gets nice, mosquitoes show up. If you like to entertain or simply enjoy your yard without these pests, consider mosquito spraying services from Green Grass Lawn Care. Our program consists of bi-weekly sprays that kill mosquitoes and set up a barrier of protection for 2 to 3 weeks.
Why do we need to spray so often? There are literally millions of mosquitoes within an acre of land. When you consider that only pregnant female mosquitoes feed on blood – and you think about how often you get bitten – gives you a good indication of how many are out there. Our mosquito control is very effective; however, due to the sheer numbers of mosquitoes in a given area, these areas need to be retreated to maintain a mosquito-free yard.
Won’t a spray program for ticks also kill mosquitoes? Ticks are ticks, and mosquitoes are mosquitoes. Both have very different management programs. Although it is the same pyrethroid -based control, there are two factors that determine effectiveness in controlling ticks and mosquitoes: the delivery method of the material, and the habitat of the pest. For example, ticks are rarely found more than 3 feet above the ground and in turf grass. Mosquitoes rest in shady foliage areas, usually along tree lines and planting beds. We spray up to 19 feet into trees to control mosquitoes.
Isn’t a mosquito spraying service expensive? While it does cost for the service, the effectiveness of our product is much better than do-it-yourself mosquito products, which are more diluted and have marginal effectiveness. Most homeowners value the professional service we provide: a mosquito-free yard…without the work!
