FAQ’s About Mosquitoes

Hiring professional pest control services is a crucial step that you take towards the health and wellbeing of your family and yourself.

In order to utilize our services to the maximum, you need to have sufficient background knowledge on how pest eradication works and what steps you can take to make sure that your house, pets, plants, and family members are not disturbed.

Does Mosquito Sheriff also cater to commercial spaces?

Yes, we definitely do! From hotels to hospitals, we cater to a wide array of commercial spaces. We are careful to not disrupt the work of your customers and staff by carefully scheduling our treatment visits and being on time.

How long does the application of the barrier treatment take?

Barrier treatment duration depends upon the surface area of your outdoor space. Typically, Mosquito Sheriff’s barrier treatment application takes up to 20 minutes to complete.

How long does the barrier treatment last?

Mosquito Sheriff’s high quality barrier treatments are effective for up to a 3-4 weeks depending on how much it rains. After this duration, your yard will need a re-treatment.

How long does it take for the barrier treatment to dry enough for us to step outside of our houses?

You can go outside immediately – even while we’re spraying. Our all natural non-toxic formula won’t hurt you or your pets.

Are there any natural remedies to prevent mosquito infestation on my property?

Of course! Apart from Mosquito Sheriff’s eco-friendly and natural pest control treatments, you can also employ easy natural measures to prevent pest infestations.

Natural larviciding techniques include keeping Mosquito Fish as a pet in your bird baths and ponds. This fish predates upon mosquitos and their larvae and are an excellent idea to halt breeding on water bodies on your property.

Apart from mosquito predators, house plants such as citronella also serve as natural mosquito repellants.

What are the most common mosquito breeding grounds on residential spaces?

Unbeknownst to most people, the most common mosquito breeding grounds are often right in sight of us, and also mistakenly set up by us. The most popular mosquito breeding sites included both, the stagnant and standing fresh water bodies found around your property. This water is often left behind in buckets, bird baths, discarded tires, tin cans, dirty pools, clogged gutters, and artificial containers. Apart from these spaces, overgrown and unkempt grass, plus small nooks and crooks are also pest favorites.

Does Mosquito Sheriff provide one-time event services?

Be it a family reunion, a birthday party, or a garden tea party, the Mosquito Sheriffs are all set to provide you quality one-time event services right in time for your event. Always on time and strict abiders of deadlines, we make sure that we leave your outdoor spaces pest and odor-free.

What is Integrated Pest Management?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an economically and environmentally feasible approach towards pest control. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms.”

IPM caters to pest control by not destroying entire eco-systems whilst also maintaining pest populations at a harmless rate.

– I was looking for a Non-Toxic/Natural way to handle the mosquitos and ticks problem as my children and pets are always in the garden, so my friend recommended me to this company, they shared a lot of information and insight and the process was easy to follow.
