TruGreen Mosquito Defense helps protect against biting mosquitoes that can transmit or cause West Nile Virus and other harmful diseases by targeting the areas where they live and breed.
Wearing long-sleeved shirts is one way to protect yourself from potentially harmful bites, but that can be uncomfortable in the heat of summer. By treating the ornamental trees and shrubs on your property, our Mosquito Defense will serve as a barrier of protection that prevents mosquitoes from seeking shelter in treated areas.

No. A well-maintained lawn provides mosquitoes poor protection from exposure to the sun and heat. That is why we treat shrub beds and tall grassy areas, which mosquitoes seek out to rest during the day.
Fogging is used by many municipalities for large-scale control of mosquitoes. This treatment is not as effective in reducing mosquito populations in and surrounding the immediate backyard and other outdoor areas of our customers. TruGreen Mosquito Defense will specifically target mosquitoes where they live on your property, giving you added protection from their potentially harmful bites.
Mosquitoes can only fly short distances as adults before they must seek shelter and rest. By treating the ornamental trees and shrubs of customers’ properties, we effectively protect their landscape from adult mosquitoes seeking shelter in treated shrubs during the day. No service can offer 100% protection from every mosquito, as it’s always a possibility that a mosquito from a neighboring property could wander into your yard and bite you before resting on the treated foliage. However, you’ll find that the presence of mosquitoes will be significantly reduced once your yard is treated with our Mosquito Defense.
Remove any areas of standing water in your yard, including toys, plant trays, garbage cans and gutters. Keep your grass trimmed and free of standing water to avoid damp spots that foster mosquito breeding. While these steps may help prevent mosquitoes, you can more effectively control the mosquito population on your property with our Mosquito Defense.
Each treatment lasts approximately one month.
As with all our applications, it’s important that both people and pets stay off and out of treated areas and wait until the application has dried before enjoying your yard again, which typically takes about an hour or less in the summer.
Yes. When you purchase Mosquito Defense, service continues year after year unless you advise us to discontinue. Customers find that continuing the program from season to season and year to year is the best way to control the mosquito population. The first treatment for mosquitoes will start based on air temperatures being conducive to mosquito activity, typically once the temperature rises above the 50-degree threshold.
If you received a Mosquito Defense service and it rained, do not worry. Normal rainfall does not impact the effectiveness of your treatment. Our mosquito specialists are using and applying products in the most effective way that will not be impacted by rain. Also, remember that your service is guaranteed, so if you find that you experience biting mosquitoes between regularly scheduled treatments, notify us and we will retreat the property at no additional charge.
No. We maintain a buffer of 10 feet from any body of water on our customers’ properties. We call this buffer our ring of responsibility, which describes an untreated area to help prevent any pesticides from being applied too close to or in the water.
