Our Treatment Plan

Simply Green Lawn Care's mosquito control treatment plan is safe for kids and pets. It uses EPA registered products that specifically target mosquito larvae. This treatment plan will not only get rid of mosquitos, but it will also prevent them from coming back!

Identifying Breeding Sites

One of the most important steps in the best mosquito control is identifying and eliminating breeding sites. Mosquitos can lay their eggs in just about any type of standing water, so it's important to get rid of any potential breeding sites around your home. Here are some common places where mosquitos like to breed: 

  • Flower pots 
  • Old tires 
  • Birdbaths 
  • Gutters 
  • Swimming pools

Providing Treatment

Once you have identified potential breeding sites, it's time to provide treatment. The best way to get rid of mosquito larvae is to use a product that contains Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) like those we use at Simply Green Lawn Care. 

Bti is a naturally occurring bacterium found in soils that specifically targets and only affects mosquito larvae. This allows you to interrupt the mosquito lifecycle —providing you with long-lasting effects.

Layering Treatments

To get rid of mosquitoes for good, you need to complete multiple layers of mosquito spraying treatment. In addition to treating mosquito larvae with a Bti product, Simply Green Lawn Care also provides adult mosquito control by using a synthetic Pyrethrum extract. 

This extract is derived from Chrysanthemum flowers and is an effective way to get rid of adult mosquitos. By using multiple layers of treatment, you can be sure that all stages of the mosquito lifecycle are being controlled.
