Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They BreedThe best way to completely eliminate the mosquitoes from your yard is to take a two-prong approach to mosquito control. This is why our treatment includes addressing any areas in your yard that may prove to be potential breeding ground. Our technicians will inspect your yard for any standing water and empty any containers that may have collected it. Our technician will then apply larvicide to any natural standing water. This larvicide will stop mosquito larvae from developing into adults without negatively impacting other aquatic insects.

Mosquito Prevention Tips
There are steps you can take to make your yard less welcoming to mosquitoes. These tips can help reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, but the only way to eliminate them completely is to have a professional mosquito treatment.
- Eliminate standing water: Mosquitoes breed in standing water. Emptying out containers that collect water, and addressing drainage issues will help reduce the mosquito population.
- Keep up with your yard work: When your grass is mowed and the bushes trimmed, the yard will dry more quickly and it will be less hospitable to mosquitoes.
- Change your light bulbs: Mosquitoes are attracted to specific frequencies that light bulbs put off. Changing to yellow bug lights and LEDs can make a difference.
- Use mosquito repellent: Mosquito repellent will stop mosquitoes from landing on you and biting. It should help protect against other insect bites too. DEET is the most effective active ingredient.
