At Superior Mosquito Defense, we are proud to offer Mosquito Control Services to rid homes and businesses of mosquitoes. Below are the most frequently asked questions about our mosquito control services:
Under normal conditions, Superior Mosquito Defense applications should dry in 30 minutes. When dry, there is negligible opportunity for the product to transfer to people or pets who brush against the vegetation which was sprayed. However, children and pets should be kept away during application and for the proceeding 30 minutes it takes for the treatment to dry.
Mosquitoes will feed on plant juices. When they attempt to feed on sprayed leaves, the residual from the spray will kill them.
Yes. It kills and also repels.
The odor of the organic spray is mild to the human nose and should be completely unnoticeable in 2 hours or less.
Yes! We service restaurants with outdoor seating, parks, recreational facilities, and many other outdoor spaces. We are happy to serve businesses, organizations, municipalities and government agencies.
With our most popular Superior Barrier Shield Program your mosquito specialist knows the importance of timely visits through the mosquito season and we want you to know too! If desired, we can alert you 24 hours in advance of a scheduled treatment. This will allow you plenty of time to reschedule if it is not convenient for some reason. We always try, however, to avoid this because we firmly need to enforce our “complete control” standards in order to provide our customers their 100% FREE TREATMENT GUARANTEE.
With our Superior Barrier Shield Program your mosquito specialist will visit your property every 21 – 25 days throughout the mosquito season. Mosquito season is typically from April through October with July, August and September being the months of the highest mosquito population.
No. And we’ll leave a notice so you know for certain that your service has been provided.
Absolutely! Our Special Event Service is available for everything from a small pool or birthday party to a large wedding reception. Special event treatments are provided 24-48 hours before the event and will remain effective even if it rains.
Glad you asked! We work diligently to reduce the breeding grounds of mosquitoes by larviciding. This method is one of the many eco-friendly operations that is our standard practice.
Eliminate Standing Water!
Tip or turn over plant saucers, children’s plastic toys, or any other objects that capture water. Toss out water collecting objects that cannot be tipped or turned over. Remove any outdoor tarps. Clean gutters so standing water will not accumulate. Remove old or unused tires as these are a favorite breeding ground of the tree hole mosquitoes that cause encephalitis. If tires cannot be removed (for instance, if you have tire swing), drill drainage holes in the lowest portion and monitor these holes to assure they don’t become blocked. Consult an arborist about ways to fill or protect tree holes without harming the tree.
Any standing water that cannot be eliminated should be treated. If practical, circulate the water, perhaps by adding a fountain. If you have a working swimming pool, run the filter the recommended number of hours per day. Change water in bird baths weekly.
Nothing! You can arrange for a free evaluation and estimate with absolutely no obligation. It is very likely that we service many of your neighbors. In most cases, We can provide an “over the phone” quote for your convenience to get your Superior Treatment Specialist out there FAST! Sometimes the same day!
