3-Step Mosquito Yard Treatment Process
1. Mosquito Fogging
Mosquitoes love to lay in areas that are damp or dense vegetation, such as tree canopies, shrubs, hedges and other green areas in your yard. Mosquito fogging is a great mosquito yard treatment that goes into lush areas, such as the ones listed above, and kill mosquitoes on contact and bonds to the treated area to prevent future mosquitoes from hanging around.
2. Mosquito Granules
We strategically place fine, all-natural mosquito-repelling granules all over your lawn. These mosquito-repelling granules are made of a safe and biodegradable formula that is proven to help repel mosquitoes.
3. Mosquito Larvicide
Mosquito larvicide is an eco-friendly solution we place by areas of standing water around your property. The larvicide specifically targets mosquitos in the larval life stage, killing them before they can become those annoying insects intruding your backyard.
The entire treatment dries in 30 minutes, and leaves no odor or visible residue! After our mosquito yard treatment, you’ll notice a significant drop in number of mosquitoes surrounding your home and yard.

Summer is finally here! While you’re outdoors enjoying the long summer days, warmer weather and sights and smells of the season with your family, keep in mind the bugs that come along with this season. Bugs and ants can be annoying as they swarm your backyard or home, but tick and mosquito bites can be a real nuisance and a hazard to you and your family’s health.

Tick and mosquito bites can sometimes lead to serious and sometimes fatal diseases, such as West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Read our guide on how to prevent tick and mosquito bites while you’re outdoors this summer.
Preventing Tick Bites
Just like mosquitoes, ticks like to reside in heavily-wooded areas, so avoid these areas if you can. If you go camping with your family this summer, avoid tick bites by wearing light-colored pants, long-sleeve shirts and closed-toed shoes. If you’re wearing light-colored clothing, it will make it easier for you to spot a tick if one decided to hitch a ride on you.
After spending time outdoors, make sure to inspect yourself and your family for ticks. They usually tend to swarm to warmer parts of the body, so be sure to check everywhere. If you brought the pup along with you, be sure to check them too. Dogs or cats can easily pick up ticks, and bring them inside your home.
Preventing Mosquito Bites
If you go camping this summer, make sure to avoid areas where mosquitoes would lay their eggs. Mosquitoes can likely be found anywhere where there is standing water, such as woodland pools, ditches, ponds, etc. Mosquitoes also like to lurk in heavily-wooded areas.
If you’re outside anytime around dawn or dusk, make sure you wear bug spray to prevent mosquito bites. This is a peak activity time for the little buggers. Before heading outdoors, make sure to spray exposed skin, such as ankles, with DEET.
Mosquitoes are drawn to certain characteristics, such as the clothes we wear; they are attracted to dark colors and floral prints. Who knew?! Keep in mind, if you decide to wear any sweet-smelling perfumes or colognes you’re almost guaranteed to get mosquito bites.
These tips will help prevent tick and mosquito bites, but if you believe you or someone you know has been bit by an insect carrying a disease, immediately contact your doctor.
