Mosquito Spray Q&A

It’s time for a little Q&A session. We wanted to satisfy some frequently asked questions when it comes to keeping your back yard free from mosquitoes. It may sound simple, but it’s surprising how many people out there are unsure of what to do to keep themselves safe from mosquitoes, when they are enjoying the outdoor areas of their home.

How do you mosquito proof your back yard?

Mosquitoes just love to breed, and their ideal place to do this is in standing water, so one of the most important things you can do as a homeowner is regularly eliminate any standing water that may have collected. If you’re the green fingered kind, then you could also grow some mosquito repelling plants. However, we would suggest one of the most effective ways to protect your home from these invading, disease spreading pests is to invest in professional mosquito control .

Can you spray for mosquitoes in your yard?

Yes, by contacting a professional pest control company, who will send out one of their technicians to do the job!  The sprayer that we use here at Backyard Bug Patrol shoots out a high powered, very fine mist that kills mosquitoes on contact and will put up an invisible barrier that will last up to three weeks. Our tech guys are passionate and professional about what they do. They want to make sure you’re as safe as you can be from these irritating and dangerous pests.

What chemical is used in mosquito spray?

We offer two different barrier sprays. The first is Flower Power which is made up of a synthetic derivative of the chrysanthemum flower. The second is called Simply Organic and is 100% organic. You can find out more about the pesticides used in other common mosquito sprays at the National Pesticide Information Center.

How do you get rid of mosquitoes in your yard?

We’re firm believers that the best cure is prevention. So if you’ve not mosquito proofed your back yard by now, then it certainly is the time to do it. Whichever method you choose, it always helps to get some professional advice and there’s plenty of it available.
