What is Barrier Spray Mosquito Control

At Mosquito Joe, the traditional barrier spray we use are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are organic compounds derived from Chrysanthemum flowers. These compounds have powerful insecticidal properties. Essentially, pyrethroids harness the plant’s naturally-evolved defenses against insects and use the same properties to protect your home and family from biters. 

Pyrethroids are used in numerous commercial products that consumers use to control insects. These products include household insecticides, pet shampoos, sprays, and even lice shampoos applied directly to the scalp. Our standard barrier spray treatment is a potent blend of pyrethroids that kill mosquitoes on contact and provide a lasting repellant. It is also highly effective on other pests, such as fleas, ticks, and some flies and gnats, making it ideal for protecting adults, kids, and pets.

Your Mosquito Joe service professional will apply a barrier spray to your entire outdoor property, paying particular attention to trees, shrubs, plants, wood piles, tall grass, and piled leaves or organic debris where mosquitoes like to hide. The barrier spray kills biting insects on contact. However, it also bonds to foliage, where it remains a potent insect repellent once dry. Because it effectively repels insects from moving in, it essentially creates a barrier, which is how the treatment got its name.

How is Barrier Spray Mosquito Control Used?

Although the pyrethroid blend we use in our barrier spray is a powerful insecticide, it can be used around living areas with children and pets. Please wait until the spray dries before returning to the treated areas. Generally, a half-hour is sufficient time to wait following a barrier spray treatment before resuming your outdoor activities.

Our barrier spray mosquito treatment is also ideal for commercial and recreational areas! Responsible mosquito control services that target biting insects help municipalities and businesses keep visitors to outdoor spaces comfortable while protecting them from insect-borne disease. 

Our barrier spray mosquito control provides an ideal environment for outdoor activity and allows continued enjoyment during warm weather months when demand is highest. Parks, sports fields, fairgrounds, tennis courts, campgrounds – where people gather to enjoy their public spaces, Mosquito Joe can help make the outdoors fun again!

Why Choose Mosquito Joe Barrier Spray?

Mosquito Joe’s barrier sprays effectively kill biting, blood-sucking insects like mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and gnats on contact. The spray we use bonds with foliage, so even when it dries, it continues to repel biting insects, leaving your property a safe zone for up to three weeks running. Then, we return to re-fortify your property’s defenses by applying another barrier spray treatment.

We also inspect your property for active larvae populations and treat them accordingly. Your service professional will identify potential mosquito breeding grounds in your yard and recommend ways to remove standing water. These notes will be left on the post-service door hanger at the end of our treatment. Every three weeks, our team will return to treat your yard to ensure it remains free from mosquitoes and other annoying pests. 

However, even when we treat your property and you remove standing water where mosquitoes breed, the risk of biting insects remains. Your neighbor may still attract and support mosquito populations with their standing water sources. This is why a barrier spray treatment is essential to maintain a proper defense against biters. It not only kills the mosquitoes currently active on your property, but it acts as a barrier to new populations of biters that would otherwise invade your space. The barrier we create stays strong so new mosquitoes don’t come in and start breeding.

All of our mosquito control services can be scheduled at your convenience, whether you are at home or not. As long as your property is accessible, you can trust us to let you know your yard has been properly treated. This is backed by the Neighborly Done Right Promise™ and our own Mosquito Joe satisfaction guarantee, which ensures your complete satisfaction.  

Do You Offer a Natural Barrier Spray?

In addition to our synthetic pyrethroid barrier spray, we offer natural mosquito control options. These treatments use garlic or essential botanical oils like lemongrass, peppermint, and rosemary to kill and repel biting insects for up to 30 days.
