Mosquito Misting System

Don’t Let Pesky Mosquitoes Trap You Inside

Similar to a home sprinkler system, a Mosquito Misting System is installed around your landscape. At the start of mosquito season, usually March to November, our skilled Specialists will activate your Mosquito Misting System.

Controlled by a digital timer, the system is programmed to operate during peak mosquito and gnat activity periods. At set intervals, precisely measured mists are delivered, typically during early mornings and late evenings, for approximately 30 seconds each time. When the season concludes, we will deactivate and winterize the system. Our program encompasses complementary barrier treatments for the designated area and larviciding as needed.

Mosquito Frequently Asked Questions

What are some things I can do to reduce mosquitoes around my home?

In addition to a mosquito control service, there are several measures you can take to get rid of mosquitoes around your home.

  • Replace any standing water in bird baths, ponds, or pools at least once weekly to reduce breeding sites.
  • Introduce mosquito-eating fish to ponds with standing water.
  • Turn over any empty flower pots, children's toys, and other objects that might hold water.

When is mosquito season?

Mosquitoes hibernate during winter and return when the temperature rises during the spring, which can be early as February or March in North and South Carolina. Mosquito populations peak during the summer when it's the hottest, so bug spray or treatments are extremely important during June, July, and August.

How long will a barrier treatment last?

Our mosquito treatments are designed to last between 3 to 4 weeks. Depending on weather and other environmental factors, mosquito treatment may not last as long. Our monthly mosquito barrier treatments are a guaranteed service. If you do not see results, call us, and we will come back out for an extra mosquito treatment service at no additional cost.

How long does a mosquito live?

Mosquitoes typically live for about 2 to 4 weeks on average, although lifespan can vary depending on factors such as species and environmental conditions.

Why are some people more prone to mosquito bites than others?

This question remains somewhat of a mystery. However, the reason why some humans get bitten more than others might come down to blood type, body scent, or perfume.

A recent study found that people with blood Type O were more likely to get bit because mosquitoes are attracted to this type of blood for unknown reasons. In this study, those with blood Type A were the least likely to get bit, and blood Type B was found somewhere in the middle. Besides blood type, mosquitoes are also attracted to certain chemicals in your skin that some people produce more than others, such as lactic acid.
