Yes, we do! Our Event Blocker protection option is the perfect mosquito and tick control solution for any special upcoming outdoor event.

Do you spray my lawn?

Mosquitoes don’t normally use grass as a resting area. During our barrier treatment applications we target the ideal areas where mosquitoes congregate and breed. The most common spots will be under decks, dense foliage, underneath leaves and debris and damp shady areas behind bushes and shrubbery.

We do offer an added tick control services that requires your lawn to be treated. Ask Mary’s for more information.

How long should we keep the kids, and pets off the lawn?

If we have just treated your property, we recommend waiting 10-15 minutes until the product has dried. Once dry, you and your family can enjoy the outdoors again!

Do I need to be home when you treat our property?

No, you do not need to be home while we treat your property. Upon completion of each treatment our technician will leave notification of their services.

How often will you treat our property?

With our full-season protection you can expect our technicians to spray every 17 to 21 days with the Customized option and every 14 days for All-natural.

How long will it take to treat my property?

On average our technicians will need approximately 10-15 minutes per treatment. Although, larger yards may take longer to treat.

Does the All-Natural treatment really work?

Absolutely! It’s not only a better option for the environment, it’s proven to eliminate mosquitoes and ticks on contact and repel for up to 14 days. We are so confident about our barrier spray and application techniques we offer a money-back 100% satisfaction guarantee!

What happens if it rains after you treated my yard?

If it rains after we treat your yard, you may have a wet yard, but rest assured that our mosquito control solution uses water-locking technology and will not wash away with rain. However, after any heavy rain, it is common to see an increase in mosquito activity. Therefore, we kindly ask that you allow 48 hours for the treatment to reactivate. This will allow our solution to effectively regain its full potency and provide maximum protection against these pests.

Additionally, between treatments, it greatly helps to empty any standing water in your yard. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so removing any sources of standing water can help reduce the mosquito population in your yard.

If your yard has had ample time to dry after the application treatment (approximately 15 minutes), heavy rain should not alter the effectiveness of your treatment. However, if you feel that the rain has impacted the quality of your service, we will gladly return to re-treat your property – free of charge! – before your next scheduled visit within 7 days. Our 100% satisfaction guarantee is something we take very seriously, and we want to ensure that you are completely happy with our service.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your help in keeping your property mosquito-free!
