Mosquito Control Raleigh
Most pest control companies that provide mosquito control services in Raleigh have come to understand the unique nature of how humidity and a multitude of lakes, streams, and ponds populate the Raleigh area, can lend host to mosquitoes. Known as the “City of Oaks” due to the vast number of oak trees throughout the city, Raleigh, NC has enjoyed tremendous growth in population due to the temperate climate and convenient location between the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and the Appalachian Mountains.
Homeowners who move to Raleigh enjoy spending the warmer months in the backyard with their family, but unfortunately most have realized that North Carolina is also home to quite a few mosquitoes, and unless they are controlled, mosquitoes can turn the sanctuary of a backyard into a location where families will not want to go.
Killing Mosquitoes Using DIY Methods
Most homeowners initially try to tackle killing mosquitoes by using over-the-counter mosquito sprays and repellents, citronella candles and plants, bug lights, and even bug zappers, but quickly realize that most of these methods have very little effect against eliminating mosquitoes, and only the expertise of a mosquito exterminator will truly eliminate the swarms of mosquitoes that plague the area around the home.

Frequently Asked Questions about our Mosquito Control Services
Do you offer all natural or organic mosquito treatments?
Besides offering a conventional mosquito treatment service that lasts up to 21 days, we also provide an organic treatment that is environmentally safe and lasts up to 14 days.
What are the natural active ingredients in the organic mosquito spray?
Our organic insecticide uses rosemary oil, peppermint oil and geraniol (the main part of Citronella Oil). These ingredients are perfectly safe for plants and wildlife, but are natural repellents to insects.
What should I expect if I call for a mosquito control treatment?
First and foremost we ask that you make sure your pets are indoors or away from where we’ll be working so they’ll be safe. Second, if you’re unable to be present when we come then please make sure you leave any gates open so we can access your property. The mosquito treatment will then consist of 4 steps to ensure the best possible outcome:
1. We fully examine all the areas around your property so we can determine what pests will be targeted (usually mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks).
2. We then identify all of their breeding sites where standing water is present.
3. We mitigate the breeding sites through larvicide treatments, and eliminate areas where water can be emptied.
4. We then spray all of the adult mosquito harborage areas around your property, including treelined areas, underbrush, and low branch overhangs.
Do you offer any type of discounts or coupons?
We encourage neighborhoods and communities to collectively work together at widening the barrier of protection against mosquito infestation, so as an incentive we offer community discounts. For those that aren’t within a community that can qualify for this type of discount, we do offer a coupon where we’ll beat any of our competitors lowest estimate by 10%.
How much does it cost to get an estimate?
We provide free estimates, but in order to give you the best possible price with the best overall results we ask that we see the property where we’ll be providing the treatment. This way we can get a better understanding of how much area will need to be sprayed, how many breeding sites will need to be eliminated, and what type of pests need to be eliminated.
What should I do if I have mosquitoes between treatments?
