Do Mosquito Treatments Really Work? – Experts Weigh In

Its summertime and mosquitoes are in full force. You can’t go a day without hearing about them on the news or seeing one buzzing by your ear, annoying you to no end.

Mosquitoes have been around for millennia but they only recently became an annoyance that is almost impossible to avoid. These flying pests now seem like their goal is just making life difficult for humans everywhere.

Why Should I Be Spraying For Mosquitoes?

Mosquito-borne diseases can cause serious health problems, such as the Zika virus, Malaria, and West Nile Virus. In order to avoid mosquito bites, many people have turned to use chemicals like repellents or mosquito sprays that contain DEET (N-diethyl-meta-toluamide). The question remains though of whether mosquito treatments work.

Mosquito control typically isn’t 100% effective because mosquitoes don’t always bite you when they’re near you; it’s really more about if they happen to be close enough at the time. This means that there is no way to guarantee protection from all mosquitos or prevent all bites and harm.

Experts recommend using yard insecticides or pesticides in addition to other methods of prevention (i.e., clear out any standing water, wear protective clothing), and make sure you’re applying them right – Mosquitoes can sense the smell of insect repellent from up to 50 yards away!

Are Mosquito Spray Treatments Safe For My Family?

Mosquito treatments are a great option if you live in an environment with a high number of mosquitoes and mosquito larvae, and the product is safe for your family. The mosquito treatment and spray that we use at Hero Pest Control is safe for humans and animals, including pregnant women or those with asthma.

Our mosquito spray uses a dual-action system that includes both chemical and physical barriers to keep mosquitoes from biting. The risk of human health is eliminated with these sprays, making it the perfect solution for your backyard barbecue or outdoor wedding!

Must Read: Natural Ways to Control Mosquitos

How Often Should I Get Mosquito Sprays Done?

Homeowners should have an exterminator or professional control company perform monthly mosquito suppression treatment in the peak season of March to November. By targeting heavily shaded areas, such as foliage and below decks or sheds, with insecticides, we’re able to eliminate active adult mosquitoes at the time of spraying. This inhibits the mosquito population from reproducing in the future and helps to build up a natural barrier of protection.

Mosquitoes can be pesky and are hard to control without professional help! Just because you live away from standing water sources doesn’t mean your yard is not hospitable for breeding grounds; stagnant pools may form after rainfall when there’s no wind or heavy traffic which will allow for larvae near these locations to turn into pupae before they’re ready to hatch.
