Maintain fly screens on windows, doors, vents and chimneys. Use insect surface sprays both inside and outside the house to kill mosquitoes. Use an effective mosquito repellent, containing either picaridin or diethyltoulamide (DEET) on all exposed skin. Remove stagnant water around the house so mosquitoes cannot breed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, a mosquito fogging treatment can be an effective way to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard during mosquito season (March-October). Mosquito fogging involves spraying a pesticide mist that targets adult mosquitoes in outdoor areas where they are known to congregate, such as around trees, shrubs, and other vegetation. The pesticide used in fogging treatments typically kills mosquitoes on contact and provides residual protection for a period of time. Treatments are typically done monthly from March-October for best results.

It’s important to note that mosquito fogging should only be done by a licensed professional like APC who is trained to use the equipment and handle the pesticide safely. While fogging can be an effective way to control mosquitoes, it is not a permanent solution and may need to be repeated monthly to maintain effectiveness.

To help maximize the effectiveness of a mosquito fogging treatment, it’s also important to eliminate potential mosquito breeding sites around your yard, such as standing water in planters, bird baths, or other containers. Additionally, using personal protective measures such as insect repellent and wearing long-sleeved clothing can help reduce your risk of mosquito bites.

Mosquitoes in the east valley are typically attracted to areas with standing water, as this is where they lay their eggs and develop into adults. Mosquitoes can breed in even small amounts of standing water, such as in plant saucers, bird baths, or clogged gutters.

Additionally, mosquitoes are most active during dawn and dusk, when temperatures are cooler, so you may be more likely to encounter them during these times. Mosquitoes are also attracted to carbon dioxide, which is exhaled by humans and animals, so being outdoors can also increase your chances of being bitten.

To reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home, it’s important to eliminate any standing water and take steps to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in your yard. This may include:

  • Emptying and cleaning plant saucers, bird baths, and other containers that collect water
  • Keeping gutters clear of debris to prevent water from pooling
  • Treating swimming pools and hot tubs with appropriate chemicals
  • Using screens on doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home
  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants, and using insect repellent when spending time outdoors during peak mosquito activity times
  • Add a monthly mosquito fogging treatment from APC to your regular pest control service plan during mosquito season (March-October)

By taking these steps, you can help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home and minimize your risk of being bitten.

Mosquito fogging treatments are recommended on a monthly basis from March to October in the east valley.

APC can spray at your home or business. If you are having an event at a venue, you would need to get written permission from the venue for APC to treat it prior to your event.
