Mosquito Control Tips

Rely On Reliable’s Mosquito Services

Reliable Pest Solutions has decades of experience in providing exterior services for various flying insects, including mosquitoes. Our licensed technicians are trained to significantly reduce the local mosquito population with our long-lasting solutions. Since our treatments target mosquitoes at their breeding sites, you and your family can enjoy your backyard without being constantly attacked by bloodthirsty mosquitoes. 

Mosquito treatments are pointless if they don’t target the source of the problem, which is exactly what our team is trained to do. These pests adapt to their environments and breed in all kinds of aquatic environments. Some of the most common yard sites include drainage ditches, ponds, leaf litter, drenched tarps, and overwatered plants. Once our experienced technicians identify all of the breeding sites in your yard, we target those areas with a backpack sprayer. 

The areas that we typically focus our treatments on include:

  • On plants
  • Along the fenceline
  • In thick brush 
  • On tree trunks 
  • Along the house

Reliable’s mosquito services operate on a monthly basis from April through October. We are dedicated to protecting your home from these bloodsucking pests and preventing them from ruining your warm weather days!

When you spend time outdoors, you don’t want to worry about the possibility of mosquitoes biting you or your family. In order to effectively reduce mosquito populations, it is important to identify and eliminate mosquito breeding sites around homes and neighborhoods. To help you reduce the potential of mosquitoes in and around your property, follow these helpful tips and guidelines.

  • Inspect your roof for leaks, and keep an eye out for leaking outdoor faucets and air conditioner units. Repair any leaks to eliminate the possibility of standing water.
  • Fill any tree holes or tree stumps with a sealant or mortar to prevent water accumulation.
  • Throw away or store any items that can accumulate standing water. If these items are used frequently, they should be stored upside-down.
  • Clean gutters frequently. Debris can clog and obstruct water flow from your roof, causing gutters to fill up with standing water.
  • Clean your swimming pool regularly and keep it chlorinated. Pool covers, which can also collect water and debris, should be cleaned as well.
  • Adjust sprinklers to prevent over-watering, which can create ideal conditions for mosquito breeding.
  • Treat standing water with a product to control mosquito larvae, such as Mosquito Dunks larvacide. Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating fish such as western mosquitofish, goldfish and guppies.

Reduce mosquito breeding sites

  • Change the water in bird baths and wading pools at least once a week.
  • Aerate ornamental ponds or pools to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in still water.
  • Identify drainage ditches or swampy areas that can be filled, drained or treated with a larvacide.

Reduce the chances of being bitten

  • Be aware of the peak hours for mosquito activity (at dawn and dusk) and educate your family on using extra protection during those hours.
  • Wear clothing that covers your body, including long-sleeved shirts, long pants and socks.
  • Apply a repellent that contains an EPA-registered active ingredient like DEET or picaridin; be sure to follow all label directions. For children, use repellents that have no more than 10 percent DEET.
  • Close windows, doors and screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
  • Keep your lawn and property maintained. Mosquitoes like to rest in weeds, brush and other overgrown areas that collect water.
