Landscape Maintenance vs. Lawn Care: What’s The Difference?

Read more

Your family’s safety is likely your number one priority. That’s why you may want to protect them from harmful, potentially disease-carrying mosquitoes. But you also may  be asking yourself, “How safe is spraying for mosquitoes?” 

The last thing that you want to do is compromise your family’s safety with the very thing that you’re doing to protect them.

Fortunately, you don’t have to. There is such a thing as a safe mosquito spray and it really works, too. It almost sounds too good to be true but we have hundreds of customers’ experiences to back it up. 

Let us explain more so that you can understand how safe is mosquito spraying for your yard.

What is in a Safe Mosquito Yard Spray?

Typically, what makes homeowners feel most comfortable is when they understand one of the main ingredients in our mosquito spray. Get ready for it because it might surprise you. 

It’s concentrated garlic oil!

We like to joke that just like it works on blood-sucking vampires, it works on blood-sucking mosquitoes, too.

In addition, our safe mosquito yard spray also integrates a low-dose larvicide that solely targets mosquito larvae. That means it can’t harm pets or people. It’s fine to be near your koi ponds. 


We’re pet lovers, just like you—so we completely understand these concerns. But we also use the same mosquito spray on our own yards because we know that they’re safe.

How Often Does Safe Mosquito Yard Spray Need to be Applied?

The key to success with a highly safe product like this is frequent applications during the mosquito season. The complete safety of these natural products also means their potency doesn’t last as long as synthetic materials would. 

We typically perform nine treatments. 

There are certainly companies that perform a lot less but that might be due to the fact that they have a more potent chemical. In order not to have any questions about safety but to still prevent breakthrough, we do need to perform regular treatments.

A lot of homeowners like this because they never have to call us. Before breakthrough even has the chance to occur, we’re already back, treating again. We believe it’s a big part of the reason that we don’t get complaint calls and why we have so many satisfied customers receiving mosquito control for their property.

Can I Just Perform Mosquito Control Myself?

When customers hear that we’re using safe and natural products, they often ask if they can just perform the applications themselves, with store-bought products. But the truth is, store-bought products still fall short. 

In addition to the product itself, you’ll also need equipment to perform the applications. This is not an inexpensive purchase. A good quality backpack blower sprayer might cost you $600 or more. You could settle for a cheap pump-up sprayer but a backpack blower is the best way to apply the product if you want to be effective in getting material on the undersides and interior areas where mosquitoes often hide out.


It’s also worth noting that our pest control technicians are highly trained to be handling and applying product. Plus, they know exactly where to spray the product in order to be the most effective.

If you truly want to get the best results and to protect your family from danger, then working with a professional is the way to go. By making that investment, you can gain valuable peace of mind that these dangerous pests are no longer a threat—and that you’ve made no compromises to your family’s safety by choosing professional mosquito control.

If you’re ready to stop worrying about the nuisance and dangers of mosquitoes, request a quote, get your customized plan, and sit back and relax as you get the royal treatment.
