Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
In order to control mosquitoes, you need to do more than just kill the adult mosquitoes. At Mosquito Tek, we start by identifying potential breeding areas for mosquitoes and use a larvicide that will stop mosquito larvae from developing into adults. Our technician will perform an inspection of your property and empty any standing water. In areas where it naturally gathers, the technician will apply the treatment. When you combine this with our adult treatments, you can be confident that you will have a mosquito-free yard.
Conventional and Organic Mosquito Treatments
At Mosquito Tek, we understand that choice is important, which is why we offer two treatment options. Our conventional treatment is one of the most effective treatments on the market and it is safe for you, your family, and your pets. It will last for three weeks.

Mosquito Prevention Tips
There are steps that you can take to lower the chance of having mosquitoes in your yard:
- Change your lights: Mosquitoes like certain frequencies of light and switching to LED lights and yellow bug lights can make a difference.
- Keep your yard neat and trim: Mosquitoes like areas that stay damp. Trimming your bushes, clearing out debris and keeping your lawn short will allow your yard to dry out more quickly.
- Eliminate standing water: Taking the time to empty any standing water in your yard will get rid of any breeding areas in your yard.
- Use mosquito repellent: using mosquito repellent that contains DEET is one of the best ways to stop mosquitoes from biting you. It is important to wear this if you are going into an area with a lot of mosquitoes.
