How To Treat Your Yard For Mosquitos

If you’ve often wondered how to treat your lawn for mosquitos, read on! As the weather gets warmer, and we are enjoying more time outside, there is a presence that can easily ruin your mood. Mosquitoes are probably one of the most hated insects today. They can quickly ruin a backyard barbeque or a relaxing day in your lawn. Mosquitoes seem to know when you are enjoying the weather and attack with no mercy.

Did you know that besides being a nuisance, mosquitos can carry diseases and be carriers for some deadly illnesses? Nothing stops a lawn party like the thought of deadly diseases. There are over 3,000 species of mosquitoes in the world and more than 50 of those have been spotted in Virginia since 2008. Mosquitoes can be such a problem because all they need is water to breed.

What To Do About Mosquitos?

We have a solution! Did you know that Virginia Green Lawn Care is partners with MosquitoXpress? MosquitoXpress is a professional mosquito and tick control service. They offer a wide range of treatments so you don’t have to worry about these bugs when you are enjoying the beautiful Virginia weather!

The first solution MosquitoXpress offers is a barrier spray. MosquitoXpress’ trained technicians will safely apply only EPA approved products in a barrier spray to your trees & shrubs and other mosquito locations every 21 days. These applications not only kill adult mosquitoes on contact but continue to repel for weeks of outdoor enjoyment. In addition to managing your adult mosquito population, we will inspect your entire property for standing water that may harbor larvae.

A Natural Solution

Perhaps you aren’t a huge fan of chemical based products. No problem! MosquitoXpress also offers a natural solution treatment. They use a garlic spray. Garlic mosquito spray creates a barrier that lasts 14 days (versus 21 days for our synthetic product). In addition to killing and chasing away your existing adult mosquito population, the natural mosquito garlic spray coats the leaf surface of your turf and ornamentals with natural sulfur contained in garlic juice, fending off entry from adjacent habitat. Garlic spray is also effective in reducing mosquito larvae, which are suffocated when the spray coats the water’s surface, preventing oxygen from reaching the larvae.

In addition to being an effective mosquito control treatment, our services are safe for use around children and pets, allowing you to feel secure that your property is being protected effectively.

Planning a party? Maybe it the big day? MosquitoXpress also offers special event mosquito control. Whether wedding, fund raiser, swim meet, family reunion or any other special occasion, don’t let mosquitoes ruin your get together. Contact them 48 hours in advance, and they will create a barrier of protection so that you and your guests can enjoy the occasion without distraction.

Your special event spray will provide weeks of mosquito free activity without the distracting odors of other control methods, giving you one less detail to worry about.

So next time you are ready to enjoy your Virginia Green lawn and the weather, think about how you could be mosquito free!
