DIY Mosquito Yard Treatment vs Pest Control Service in Eau Claire


Some things you can do perfectly fine yourself: Make a grilled cheese sandwich. Decide which socks to wear.

Other times, you seek out a pro: Heart surgery. House fires. 

Mosquito battling is one of those gray areas. You could do it yourself, maybe after a nice grilled cheese sandwich.

Or you could hire a pro.

DIY mosquito treatment vs pest control service — what are the real differences? 

Will Your DIY Mosquito Control Work? Maybe, Maybe Not

Maybe you’ll get lucky and the DIY mosquito control product you buy at the store will keep away those biting mosquitoes. Maybe it won’t.

mosquitoThe pros know the professional-grade products they use work. They’re proven, season after season. There are hundreds of thousands of dead mosquitoes to prove it.

Do You Know What You’re Doing Out There?

We bet you’re really good at what you do. Awesome math teacher. Super accountant. Friendliest store manager ever. 

Nobody expects you to be an expert mosquito control technician. That’s not your job. So why would you know exactly where, when, and how to expertly spray your yard for mosquitoes?

Professionals know exactly where, how, and when to apply their products to get rid of mosquitoes in your yard. They’re licensed and trained to know exactly what to do.

Equipment Matters

How do you apply your DIY mosquito control? Does it just spray from a can? Hook up to a garden hose? 

Mosquito treatment service pros use equipment that hits all the areas of your property where mosquitoes lurk and breed.

They also have access to professional-grade products, which are more effective than DIY mosquito control.

Be Sure Your Family and Pets Are Safe

The products that kill mosquitoes are safe when handled, applied, and stored properly. Are you set up for safety?

DIY Mosquito Treatment vs Pest Control Service: Timing is Everything

How often will you go out there and treat your yard with your DIY mosquito control? Maybe you’ll remember. Maybe you won’t. Life gets busy, right? Work presentations. That plumbing project. The neighborhood yard sale you’re already regretting.

Those hungry mosquitoes would just love it if you missed a couple applications. You can imagine them, rubbing their little mosquito hands together in glee. 

A mosquito treatment service shows up exactly on time, every three weeks from spring through fall. Mosquitoes are continually reproducing, so there’s always a fresh batch that needs zapping. Your yard is always covered.

Beyond Just Spraying for Mosquitoes

There are lots of things that could be lurking in your yard that are big welcome mats for mosquitoes: old tires, clogged gutters, buckets, wheelbarrows, empty flower pots and other places where water accumulates. 

Maybe there’s leaf litter, tall grasses or brush where mosquitoes like to lurk.
