Mosquito populations rise and fall in relation to many variables, most importantly weather. After a period of wet weather followed by warm temperatures you will typically experience a notable rise in mosquito activity in the form of annoying buzzing and ankle biting.

Eliminate (or regularly refresh) standing water around the home where mosquitoes breed. This includes birdbaths, flowerpots, grill covers, baby pools, unopened swimming pools, tires and other objects where water collects.
Assess the drainage and grading on your property to minimize mosquito habitat.
Ensure the openings to your home are protected with general purpose screen (mesh size 18 strands per inch, or finer) to prevent entry.
Our trained technicians survey your property for mosquito activity and areas where mosquitoes are likely to breed. We offer one-time treatments typically used to eliminate mosquitoes for a specific period or event, or recurring treatments that are designed to eliminate and prevent mosquito activity around your home for the entire season.
Treatments typically last 3 to 5 weeks depending on variables such as weather. You will find treatments most effective closest to time of application.
We would prefer you are home for initial treatment to discuss the application and make sure our technicians have access to the entire area. After that the treatment can be applied when you are not at home as long as we have access to the entire area and all pets are in the house.
We are concerned with the health of your family, pets, and other beneficial organisms around your yard and take every effort to keep our treatments in locations where mosquitoes, but little else (including beneficial pollinators), are affected.
You can use your yard the same day, once the treatment has dried.

Adult female mosquitoes feed on blood to obtain a nutritious meal for egg production. Adult females will take multiple meals during their lifetime and during this process can vector a number of serious pathogenic organisms. They are responsible for transmitting diseases like West Nile, Zika, chikungunya, malaria, and many more. It’s important to remember that no single mosquito species is able to transmit all of these pathogens and that the pathogens must be present in the environment for mosquitoes to be able to spread them. One of the reasons that a Zika virus outbreak in our area isn’t anticipated is because the principle mosquito vectors of Zika are uncommon here. Click here to read "Should Michigan Residents be Concerned About the Zika Virus?", an excellent article by Dr. Kaufman, an entomologist and mosquito specialist at Michigan State University, explaining this concept to a Michigan-based audience.
