Is Mosquito Treatment Safe?

The most important thing to look for is that your mosquito treatment is EPA approved. If it’s an EPA approved product, you can rest assured that it is safe for proper use for you and your family.

It’s much riskier to apply mosquito treatments yourself than to leave the job to a professional, so for best and safest results we always recommend hiring an experienced exterminator.

Will Mosquito Treatment Kill My Garden?

If the treatment is EPA approved and applied according to the manufacturer’s instructions, most DIY mosquito treatments are safe for use in your garden. In general, there are a few factors to consider when determining the safety of a mosquito treatment product:
  1. Only use products that are EPA approved. This means they’ve been subjected to rigorous testing in numerous circumstances
  2. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions as closely as possible when applying any mosquito treatment
  3. Think twice about DIY treatments. A licensed mosquito exterminator knows how and has experience using these products

Can Mosquito Spray Endanger My Family?

The EPA warns to take caution when applying any pesticides yourself. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions as written. As long as you do that, and use only EPA approved products, there is no reason why they are not safe for your family.

However, if you’re not sure how to use pesticides, it’s always better to leave that to a trusted pest control company. Improper use of mosquito treatment products drastically increases the risk to yourself, family, and pets. It also makes it more likely that you accidentally harm nearby plants, foliage and beneficial insects.
