Stop Mosquitoes Where They Breed
Spraying for mosquitoes is just one part of an effective mosquito treatment. As part of each treatment, Mosquito Tek will stop mosquitoes where they are breeding through the use of larvicides. Our technician will place larvicides in any naturally occurring standing water in your yard. He will also complete an inspection and empty any standing water that may have collected in containers around your yard. This should stop any larvae from developing into adult mosquitoes.
Conventional and Organic Treatment Options
At Mosquito Tek, we understand that every yard and every situation is unique, which is why we offer both conventional and organic treatment options. Both options are safe for you, your family and your pets.
- We use the Talstar product line for our conventional treatment. This has a strong mosquito knockdown. Treatments will need to be applied every three weeks.
- We use the Essentria product line for our organic treatments. This is NOP compliant with no aquatic setback and is safe to use around vegetable gardens. It is a good option for restaurant owners. Treatment needs to be applied every two weeks.
Optional Flea and Tick Treatment Upgrade
As an added value to our mosquito treatment service, we offer an affordable flea and tick control upgrade option with each mosquito treatment.

Killing Mosquitoes Using DIY Methods
Many homeowners try using over-the-counter mosquito sprays and repellents or bug lights and zappers to eliminate mosquitoes. However, they quickly realize that these methods do not actually eliminate mosquitoes. A professional mosquito exterminator will be able to truly eliminate mosquitoes around your property. You can work to prevent mosquitoes in your yard in a few ways.
- Keep your lawn trimmed. Mosquitoes like longer lawns and overgrown areas that allow them plenty of places to harbor, keeping landscape trimmed can help to prevent mosquitoes.
- Eliminate standing water. Mosquitoes can breed in just a capful of water. Be sure to turn over any containers in your yard and properly store your gardening tools.
- Clear out debris. Mosquitoes can find places to harbor or breed in debris around your yard, especially in tires.
