How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?

The short life cycle of mosquitoes means that when it’s mosquito season they will constantly hatch new generations and they will always keep coming back. For that reason, mosquito control treatments can sometimes be an ongoing process.

Barrier treatments can be highly effective for one to two months, but if your property is located somewhere that’s prone to mosquito infestations, multiple applications may be needed. Fortunately, when you work with a mosquito control technician at Arrow Exterminating, they will be able to determine if and how soon you will need reapplication.

How often do I need mosquito treatment?

This depends entirely on your property and unique conditions like the weather, environment, and mosquito population nearby.

When the repellent that was applied begins to degrade, it weakens your barrier. Sometimes the weakened barrier offers adequate protection, but if not we can retreat the areas so that it continues offering maximum protection. An experienced mosquito exterminator should be able to inspect the property and give you some kind of idea how often treatment would be needed.

How often should I treat my yard for Mosquitoes?

After your yard has been treated by a professional mosquito exterminator, we strongly recommend monitoring your yard for signs of mosquito activity. Here are a few easy DIY mosquito prevention tactics you can try:

  • Make a point of going out at least once a week to listen for mosquitos
  • Tip over containers that have accumulated water, or dry up puddles. Mosquitoes don’t need a lot of water to breed but they do need water
  • Consider setting up fans. Mosquitoes are poor flyers and prefer non-windy areas

Mosquito treatment timeline on Long Island

The best time to begin mosquito treatment is early spring. An early barrier treatment can knock out their early population and make it very difficult for their levels to rebound. 

After your initial treatment, the entire team at Arrow Exterminating will work with you on ongoing treatment. This may involve treating it again in a month or two, or it might be a preventive maintenance program. Either way, we look forward to working with you.
