What is Mosquito Control
Mosquito control manages both the adult mosquito population as well as viable eggs to reduce the damage to human recreation, health, and the economy. Mosquitoes carry diseases like the Zika virus, West Nile virus, and others, and outbreaks of these diseases can have a crushing impact on local economies.
Beyond the potential for disease, mosquitoes can turn your garden or pool into a combat zone. We’ve designed our mosquito control services to help get you back outdoors, doing what you love, free from the biting and itching caused by mosquitoes.
City Mosquito Control Services
Mosquito control may be done at the city level by mosquito control services like Mosquito Joe, creating overlapping benefits. For example, city treatments typically spray dense fog around the service trucks. The fog kills adult mosquitoes nearby the trucks and their routes. This helps lower the population of reproducing adult mosquitoes in these areas.
These city fogging services target the Culex and Anopheles species that reside higher up in the trees; however, they do not reach into the backyards where our mosquito control services primarily target the Aedes species that are typically the nuisance in your backyard.
Mosquito Joe Mosquito Control
Mosquito control services near you, like Mosquito Joe, arrive at your home and apply a treatment that kills adult mosquitoes and their eggs that may be located in long grass, shrubs, and potted plants. We’ll also assess and treat any standing water on your property where mosquitoes like to lay their eggs. Our treatment lasts approximately 21 days, so we return to apply additional treatments throughout the season.
What You Can Do at Home to Control Mosquitoes
As a homeowner, you can also play a crucial role in mosquito control on your property and around your home. Regularly check ponds, bird baths, and plant catch trays for mosquito larvae and remove any standing water from buckets and planters. Clean out gutters and repair leaky faucets to cut down on any standing water on your property.
Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in still water, and just a bottle cap full of water can play host to 300 eggs! Eliminating the amount of standing water on your property can help reduce the overall mosquito population on your property. Learn more about combating mosquitoes here.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where do mosquitoes hide around the yard?
Mosquitoes like shade, shelter, and moisture. Areas around the yard that offer these are where you’re most likely to find them hiding. Trees, bushes, long grass, and debris piles are the most common spots on your property where mosquitoes will congregate. Locating and eliminating (where possible) these refuges is a critical part of mosquito control.
What’s the best way to get rid of mosquitoes?
Mosquito control services for yards are one of the most effective ways to get rid of mosquitoes. Our yard treatments will eliminate biting insects for up to 21 days! As mentioned in the answer above, you can help by taking steps to make your property less inviting to mosquitoes.
Why do mosquitoes bite me so much?
If mosquitoes seem to target you for biting, it may be your blood that attracts them! Several factors, including carbon dioxide, scent (such as sweat and lactic acid), and dark colors can lure female mosquitoes to you. However, blood type may be one key reason why mosquitoes bite you more often than others. Believe it or not, mosquitoes are more attracted to people with O-type blood than to other blood types.
Female mosquitoes are the ones that bite humans and animals to drink their blood. The female needs protein and nutrients to develop eggs. If you find you’re getting bitten more than those around you, it may be your blood. Since changing your blood type is not an option, schedule mosquito control so you can enjoy your pool and patio in peace!
Do bug-zappers work to control mosquitos?
Blacklight insect electrocution devices, aka “bug zappers,” are very popular as people try to keep their outdoor living spaces free from mosquitoes. However, while these bug zappers are highly effective for killing flying insects in general, only a tiny fraction are actually mosquitoes.
An independent study conducted by Notre Dame found that only 4.0 – 6.4% of insects killed daily by the bug zappers were mosquitoes. Unfortunately, they found such devices were far more effective at killing beneficial insects than providing effective mosquito control.
