Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to do the barrier treatment and how long will it last?
A typical treatment will average about 15-30 minutes. Larger yards may take longer to treat. Each treatment lasts approximately 21 days, at which time our team will be scheduled to treat your yard again.

Do you spray for mosquitoes in the grass?
Spraying grass during a treatment will depend on the type of service you prefer. If you are only looking for mosquito control, then we generally do not treat the grass because mosquitoes don’t shelter there. Our goal in doing a pre-service walk of the property is to seek out the “hot spots” where mosquitoes will be loafing. The most common areas to find mosquitoes during the day include: the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks, and in damp shady areas of the property. We do recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season.

If you are looking for tick, flea, chigger and no-see-um prevention in addition to mosquito control, then we DO treat the grass. Many of these pests can live in both your grass and your landscaping.

In some cases, such as special events like weddings and large outdoor parties, we will spray the grass where your guests will be.
