Benefits of TruGreen Mosquito Defense
Targeted Mosquito Control
Monthly Applications using specialized equipment to strategically deliver mosquito control products and repellent to the areas where mosquitoes hide, including ornamental foliage, potted plants and ground cover.
Expert TruGreen Exterminators
With years of experience and expertise in the field, we train our specialists to use our innovative mosquito control repellent to help rid your yard of mosquitoes within 24 hours of your first application. In addition to our science-backed expertise – ranging from local experts to national-scale support – we’re also proud to have our very own board-certified Entomologists.
Pet Safe Mosquito Yard Treatment and Sprays
Spray your yard, not your kids. Many rely on smelly candles or spray to protect themselves against biting mosquitoes, but that doesn’t get rid of the problem. Our Mosquito Defense eradicates mosquitoes from your yard within 24 hours of your first application. Not only that, but our Mosquito Plus service includes outdoor protection against fleas and tick control, too.
Mosquito Disease Control
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.
Barrier of protection
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 stops mosquitoes from seeking shelter in treated areas.
Frequently Asked Questions About TruGreen Mosquito Treatment
Did I read that right? You have a Mosquito Free Guarantee?
We certainly do! At TruGreen, we know you take pride in your outdoor living space and want it to be a comfortable place for your family, friends and even your pets. We guarantee our science-based treatment to be effective in controlling mosquito populations within 24 hours, and with significant reduction for as long as 30 days after your service. If you’re not 100% satisfied with the results, we’ll re-treat at no additional cost. That’s our promise to you.
Does TruGreen spray the entire lawn for mosquitoes?
No. A well-maintained lawn provides mosquitoes poor protection from exposure to the sun and heat, so a total mosquito lawn treatment is not necessary. That is why we treat shrub beds and tall grassy areas specifically, which mosquitoes seek out to rest during the day.
My city has mosquito trucks, so why do I need you to treat?
Fogging is used by many mosquito exterminators in 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.
Does TruGreen Mosquito Defense prevent mosquitoes from flying into my yard from my neighbors property?
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.
What can I do to help prevent mosquitoes?
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.
How much does the TruGreen Mosquito Treatment cost?
The cost of this service will depend on the size of your lot. We’ll include a personalized quote for your treatment plan following our inspection of your property.
How long does one treatment last?
Each treatment lasts approximately one month.
Is TruGreen Mosquito Defense safe for my kids and pets?
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.
Is one mosquito treatment enough?
Mosquito pesticides get more effective the longer they’re used and while one-off applications still show strong results, they don’t tend to be as beneficial. For this reason, long-term prevention is much more efficient than reactive or one-time treatments.
Will you continue treating my property next season?
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. Due to this, the best application time is typically between March and November.
How will rain affect my recent mosquito application?
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.
What if I have a pond on my property? Does TruGreen treat water sources?
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 mosquito fumigation pesticides from being applied too close to or in the water.
