Barrier spray mosquito treatments work right away – and keep working for weeks.
When you contract Mosquito Joe of Charleston for mosquito control, trained Technicians will treat your yard with an effective barrier spray that eliminates biters for up to 3 weeks. Using a backpack sprayer designed for precise application, your Technicians target shrubs and plants with a barrier spray that kills mosquitoes on contact and bonds to foliage, where it acts as a mosquito repellent for weeks to come. Within 15 minutes of spraying, your yard is ready for family and pets to come out and play.
We also inspect your property for active larvae populations and treat them accordingly. Your Technician will help you identify potential mosquito breeding grounds in your yard and recommend ways to eliminate standing water. These notes will be left on the post-service door hanger at the end of the treatment. Every three weeks, our team will return to treat your yard.
All of the barrier spray chemicals we use are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are insecticides that are derived from a naturally occurring compound called pyrethrum found in the chrysanthemum flower. Pyrethroids are used in numerous commercial products that consumers use to control insects such as household pets insecticides, pet shampoos and sprays, and even lice shampoos applied directly to the scalp. The standard barrier spray treatment is effective on other pests such as fleas, ticks and some flies as well.
All mosquito control services can be scheduled at your convenience, whether you are at home or not. As long as your property in the Charleston area is accessible, you can trust your Technicians to let you know your yard has been treated.
