Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They BreedIf you truly want to eliminate mosquitoes, you need to do more than kill the adult mosquitoes. At Mosquito Tek, we take a two-step approach to mosquito control. We will apply a barrier spray that will eliminate the adult mosquitoes, and we will identify areas where mosquitoes breed and address and treat them. We will apply a larvicide that the larvae will eat and it will stop them from developing into adults. This larvicide does not affect other insects.
Conventional and Organic Mosquito TreatmentsWe understand that it is important to have choice when it comes to mosquito control treatments. At Mosquito Tek, we offer two options for our treatments. The conventional method has the strongest mosquito knockdown and is safe to use around your family. For this conventional treatment, we use the Talstar products. The organic method is eco-friendly and is safe to use around organic gardens and it has no aquatic setback. For this organic treatment, we use Essentria products.
Optional Flea and Tick Control UpgradeAt Mosquito Tek, we pride ourselves on giving our customers the absolute best value, which is why we offer an optional flea and tick control treatment upgrade that you can add on which will also completely eliminate fleas and ticks as well as mosquitoes.

Mosquito Prevention Tips
If you are worried about the mosquitoes around your yard, there are steps that you can do to help lower the number of mosquitoes that may be bothering you. While these steps can help, they will not completely eliminate the mosquitoes.
- Keep your lawn trimmed: When your lawn is short, and your bushes trimmed back, it is easier for the ground to dry, which gives the mosquitoes fewer places to find harborage.
- Address standing water: Mosquitoes can breed in just a capful of water. If you have spaces that collect water, you need to address the areas by draining them to stop mosquitoes from breeding on your property.
- Change your light bulbs: Mosquitoes are not attracted to light, but to the frequency that light bulbs send out. If you switch to yellow bug lights or LED lights, you will not attract the mosquitoes.
- Use insect repellent: Insect repellent is a sure way to stop the mosquitoes from biting you and your family. DEET has been found to be very effective against mosquito and tick bites.
