While you’ve been outside either working in your yard or playing with your kids, you have also encountered nature’s mosquitoes. Why is the infestation so bad? Quit Getting Bit! With the recent record rainfall and blast in warm temperatures, they have been able to multiply very quick.

Our treatment is safe for kids and pets. After treatment, you are required to let the product dry for 1 hour and then you can return outside to enjoy your investment you have worked so hard for. Mosquitoes lay up to 250 eggs at a time in still water and they hatch within 7-15 days. During the off-season, mosquitoes can lay dormant for up to one year. If standing water is eliminated weekly, many mosquitoes will be kept from breeding in the first place. So if you are anti-mosquito and want to abate these pesky insects, start by getting rid of breeding grounds in your yard.
Common mosquito breeding grounds:
• Bird baths
• Old tires
• Open containers – cans, jars, bottles or anything that can hold as little as an ounce of water. In fact, mosquitoes can breed in as little as a drop of water. Even recycle bins may have some open containers that can collect water. Don’t forget trash cans and trash can lids too!
• Hollow trees
• Water gardens & ponds – decorative ponds without fish and other large areas of standing water
• Wading pools
• Drainage ditches
• Any area of standing water is a potential mosquito breeding ground!
