How Does Mosquito Control Work?

Our bi-weekly treatments are the cornerstone of our mosquito control efforts. Tailored to the unique needs of your property, these regular treatments ensure that mosquito populations are kept in check, disrupting their breeding cycles and significantly reducing their presence on your property.

For those special occasions when you want to ensure your outdoor setting is as welcoming as possible, we also offer one-time spraying services. Whether you're hosting a backyard wedding, a family reunion, or any other event, our team can provide targeted applications to keep mosquitoes at bay, ensuring your guests can relax and enjoy the festivities without the unwanted irritation a swarm of mosquitos may bring.

Our approach goes beyond just treatment; we're committed to comprehensive mosquito prevention. Our experts conduct thorough assessments of your property, identifying and addressing potential mosquito habitats such as abandoned swimming pools, swampy areas, un-maintained ponds, bird baths, wheelbarrows full of water, buckets full of water, and any areas of standing water. By tackling these problems directly, we not only treat existing mosquito populations but also prevent future infestations, creating a long-term solution to your mosquito woes.

At Scenic Landscaping & Property Maintenance, we're dedicated to delivering effective mosquito control solutions that allow you to reclaim your outdoor spaces. Our expert team is here to guide you through our treatment and prevention options, ensuring your property is a safe, comfortable place for you, your family, or your business.

Prevent Mosquito Problems On Your Property

Aside from mosquito control treatments there are tasks you can do to make your property less desirable to mosquitos

Keep Your Grass Manicured and Cut: Tall grass provides mosquitoes with a cool, shaded place to rest during hot days. Regularly mowing your lawn helps eliminate this refuge and discourages mosquitoes from settling near your home.

Prune Trees and Shrubs: Overgrown vegetation can shade your yard, creating a moist, cooler environment that attracts mosquitoes. Pruning trees and shrubs to allow more sunlight will dry out the soil faster, making it less hospitable for mosquitoes.

Empty Containers That Fill With Water: Mosquitoes can breed in very small amounts of water. Regularly inspect your property for containers that collect rainwater, such as flower pots, buckets, wheel barrows out in your garden, and watering cans, and empty them to interrupt the mosquito breeding cycle.

Remove Yard Debris: Piles of brush, old wood logs, and leaf piles can trap moisture and offer hiding spots for adult mosquitoes. Keeping your yard clean and free of organic debris will reduce these potential habitats.

Flush Out Birdbaths Weekly: Birdbaths can be a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Flushing them out weekly with fresh water prevents mosquito eggs from hatching into mosquito larvae.

Maintain Pool Filter Systems: A clean and functioning pool filter system keeps water moving and prevents stagnation, making it less appealing for mosquitoes to lay eggs. Ensure your pool's filtration and circulation systems are regularly maintained.

Address Abandoned/Closed Pools: Pools that are no longer in use should be drained and kept dry. If draining isn't possible, consider "shocking" the pool with chemicals to kill any mosquito larvae or cover it securely to prevent water accumulation.

Clean Pool Covers: Avoid water accumulation on pool covers, as this can serve as a breeding site.

Seal or Cover Standing Water Sources: Use screens or covers to seal openings where water can collect, such as roof gutters, and rain barrels, to prevent mosquitoes from accessing these areas to lay eggs.

Fill Rotten Stumps and Tree Holes: Tree holes and rotten stumps can collect water, providing a hidden breeding spot for mosquitoes. Fill these areas with sand to eliminate the habitat.

Dispose of Discarded Tires Properly: Tires are notorious for holding water and providing a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Dispose of them at a recycling facility, or if they must be stored, stack and cover them to prevent water collection.

Remove Containers That Hold Water: Inspect your property for any items that could collect water, including wheelbarrows, pails, and paint cans. Turning them over or storing them indoors when not in use can prevent water accumulation.

Manage Water in Ornamental Pools: Change the water in ornamental pools, fountains, and aquatic gardens regularly, or install aeration devices such as fountains or waterfalls to keep water moving and not stagnant.

Additionally, we provide one-time spraying for events and employ prevention techniques to tackle breeding sites on your property, offering a comprehensive solution to mosquito issues.

Our prevention strategy includes a thorough assessment of your property to identify and mitigate potential mosquito habitats. We address issues such as standing water, abandoned pools, outdoor containers, swamps, and ponds, which are prime breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Our team will advise on corrective measures and can implement solutions to prevent future infestations.

After we've mitigated habitat issues around your property we can apply either natural products or synthetic chemical treatments to keep the mosquitos at bay.

Our mosquito control spray treatment lasts around 2 to 3 weeks. We will always come out and re-treat every two weeks to fight off the mosquito breeding cycle.

Yes, our mosquito treatment sprays are safe for kids and pets. However, we ask that pets and kids stay inside during our visit and wait 30 minutes to allow the treatment to dry.

Yes, we understand the growing concern for environmentally friendly solutions. We offer natural and organic treatment options that are effective in mosquito control while being mindful of environmental impact. Part of an effective natural solution for mosquitos is ensuring they have no ideal habitat on your property.  This includes tackling any standing water issues you have and eliminating them wherever possible. Please ask us about these natural mosquito control options during your consultation.

With our all-natural product, you may notice a mild scent of cedar and lemongrass oil. The smell will go away once the product is dehydrated.

Yes, you can start a mosquito control treatment anytime during the season. However, we recommend starting as early as possible at the beginning of our season. Our typical mosquito control service plan runs from May 1st-September 30th. The earlier the start, the more effective the treatments will be.

Typically, we advise waiting about 30 minutes to an hour after treatment before using your yard. This allows the treatment to dry and ensures the best efficacy and safety.

In addition to our professional services, you can take several steps to minimize mosquito breeding sites: regularly empty standing water from containers, maintain gutters to prevent water accumulation. We're happy to provide more personalized advice during our visit.

Dave, Enzo, and crew have worked at our property for several years now. Their work has a consistent high level of workmanship. From shrub trimming to care of beds, everything has been top notch. In the past year, they have installed two paver patios and a walkway. The work performed was of the highest quality and workmanship. Their communication, punctuality, and responsiveness are always tops. They are are very fairly priced as well. I would not hesitate to call Scenic for any job, large or small.

After receiving multiple quotes and meeting with several contractors, we decided to use Scenic to replace our patio and add a Cobblestone border with stone fill. They provided a timeline for the work and arrived promptly, cleaning-up each day, and communicating throughout the process. Our neighbors (many, since we are in a condo) commented about how meticulous and professional the team was. In fact, several members of the Board even wished to seek a bid to have them handle our landscaping! They couldn't believe how thorough the team was. I even noticed the team leafblowing the grass where they had driven their trucks in order for it to stand back up again and look untouched. We look forward to reaching out for future work and possibly sealing our patio in the spring.

I Definitely recommend them for your next project
