4 Questions About Mosquito Yard Treatment in Massachusetts

Did you know that the world’s deadliest creature could be lurking in your own backyard? While most people think of sharks, snakes, or maybe big cats when they think of deadly creatures, in reality, the deadliest is the mosquito.

Even here in the United States, people fall ill from mosquito bites. 

For that reason, you might be considering mosquito yard treatment options. Here in the New England seacoast region, there are eight local mosquito species that cause us the most trouble. But mosquito yard control can help keep them at bay.

If you’re considering mosquito treatment for your yard, you might have some questions about what to expect. In this article, we’ll answer some of the most common questions that we receive so that you can be on your way to making the best choice.

Mosquito Yard Control Questions

Here are a few questions and answers that should help you make a wise choice in mosquito control.

#1: Is Mosquito Yard Control Safe for My Pets and Kids?

Far and away one of the most common questions that we receive is whether mosquito control is safe for pets and kids. We get it, your pets and your children spend a lot of time in your yard and the last thing that you want is to worry that they’re being exposed to something dangerous.

At Seacoast Turf Care, we use mosquito control products that are safe. In fact, they are also pollinator-safe and eco-friendly. These high-quality products will help drastically reduce the population of mosquitoes on your property without damaging local ecosystems and wildlife.

When you work with a professional for mosquito control, one of the benefits is that you’re getting an expert who knows how to implement best practices. That means that they are applying the proper amount of product in the proper way.

#2: How Much Does Mosquito Yard Treatment Cost?

At Seacoast Turf Care, we bundle mosquito control with tick control (another dangerous pest commonly found in our region). 

Our Tick and Mosquito Control program starts at $49 and includes seven treatments to combat both ticks and mosquitoes. Note that this package is not available in New Hampshire. We treat mosquitoes in Maine and Massachusetts.

While people sometimes think that they can save money by performing DIY mosquito control, this is not something that we’d recommend. For one, you still have to buy those products (and possibly equipment to apply them). Then, you also have to spend your free time performing applications (and your time is valuable!).

It’s also not necessarily “safer” to perform DIY mosquito control as you’re now the one handling and storing the products (as opposed to a professional). When you start to add up the money, time, and effort involved in DIY mosquito control, choosing to invest in a professional starts to make more sense.

#3: Is Mosquito Yard Control Effective?

If you’re going to invest in mosquito control, you obviously want it to work. The good news is that our program is very effective at diminishing the mosquito population around your property. 

One of the ways that we achieve success is by targeting prime mosquito habitats. Most people do not realize that mosquitoes are actually weak flyers and will stop frequently to rest. That means the bushes and shrubs around your property are prime hot spots for mosquitoes. We will treat those areas and others where we know mosquitoes will hang out.

Along with that, we will also provide important recommendations for getting rid of mosquitoes on your property. That includes pointing out areas of standing water that are likely mosquito breeding zones and making recommendations about keeping grasses and lawn areas trimmed.

#4: How Do I Choose Mosquito Control Services in Northeastern Massachusetts and Southern Maine?

We know you have options when it comes to choosing a mosquito control service. But just like you’d research any other service that you’re considering, we’d advise you to take some time to look into those choices.

When you invest in professional protection, you are gaining valuable peace of mind that these pests won’t be a serious threat to your family. When you choose the right company, you can also feel confident that you aren’t making a compromise with unsafe products or poor service.

At Seacoast Turf Care, we want to help put an end to what’s bugging you.

While pests like mosquitoes can be a major source of stress, you can make smart choices that will help protect your family. This means you can get back to enjoying more time outside.
