Our traditional barrier treatment is our most popular mosquito protection service and will decrease the mosquito population in your Port Saint Lucie yard by 80-90% and will remain effective for up to 21 days. Mosquito Squad’s licensed technicians treat key areas of your property, eliminating adult mosquitoes on contact and providing continuous protection. In addition to controlling mosquitoes, Mosquito Squad’s barrier treatment also effectively controls adult ticks and kills them on contact.
How does the barrier treatment work?
We will treat your entire Port Saint Lucie yard front to back targeting the foliage surrounding your property. Foliage surrounding your home and outdoor living spaces include shrubbery around and underneath decks and patios, fences, tall grass and low hanging vegetation. We will treat areas where mosquitoes breed, feed and rest. When mosquitoes attempt to feed or rest on these treated surfaces, the residual spray will eliminate them. As you might imagine, some mosquitoes might wander into your yard and bite you before resting or feeding on a treated surface. However, you will find that the presence of mosquitoes is greatly reduced.
Can the barrier treatment prevent mosquitoes too?
No, but we do have a product that can! At Mosquito Squad we don’t want to just eliminate the mosquitoes but we want to prevent them! We use a mosquito prevention call Larvicide. Larvicide is a pelletized product which our technicians apply to areas of standing water, such as small ponds, swamps, marshes and/or flooded areas. Treatment of these breeding habitats help reduce the adult mosquito population in nearby areas by preventing the mosquito larvae from becoming an adult mosquito.
