Eliminate Mosquitoes Where They Breed
At Mosquito Tek, we offer a two-prong mosquito control treatment. It is important to do more than just exterminate adult mosquitoes, you also need to stop them from continuing to breed. We apply a larvicide to the areas where mosquitoes breed in your yard. This will not impact other water insects or wildlife and when mosquito larvae feed on it they will no longer develop into adults.
Organic Treatment Options
We offer an organic mosquito control treatment option in addition to our conventional treatment option. The organic treatment option we use is Essentria, and is safe to use around your vegetable garden, does not have an aquatic setback and will last up to fourteen days. The conventional treatment option is Talstar, lasts up to twenty-one days. No matter which treatment option you choose, you can rest assured they are both safe and highly effective at exterminating mosquitoes around your home or business.
Flea and Tick Control Treatments
Fleas and ticks can spread a number of illnesses to both you and your pets. Fleas can make your pets sick with tapeworms, heartworms, and even make them anemic, whereas ticks can make both you and your pets sick with illnesses such as Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever. We know how important your family’s safety is which is why we give you the option to add a flea and tick control treatment to each mosquito treatment. You can choose this treatment as an upgrade option to your mosquito control plan, or if you’re more concerned with ticks and fleas than you are with mosquitoes, you can opt for the flea and tick treatments as a standalone service.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I prevent mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes can breed in just a capful of water. It is important to have your yard dry out as quickly as possible after a storm. Keeping your yard neat and your lawn short will help do this. Be sure to store any containers that can collect water and double check your yard to empty any.
Do some people attract more mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are attracted to people by the carbon dioxide they emit as well as their heat. They may be attracted to people who have a higher metabolic rate or who have just exercised.
Do all mosquitoes bite people?
The females are the mosquitoes that will feed on people. They need the protein in the blood to lay eggs. Male mosquitoes will feed on flower nectar and not on people.
Why do mosquito bites itch?
Mosquitoes inject an anti-coagulant into your skin to stop your blood from clotting. This anti-coagulant in their saliva can cause people to have a reaction and become itchy.
Are the treatments safe for my family?
We use safe products and our technicians are trained in keeping it safe. We do ask that your family and pets be indoors during a treatment and stay inside while it dries. The organic treatment takes about thirty minutes to dry while the conventional treatment will take about an hour to dry.
