FAQs

What products are being used in my yard and are they safe?

There are two main products used in our mosquito treatment. The first is an all-natural product, however, our main barrier spray insecticides are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids. Pyrethrins are insecticides that are derived from the extract of chrysanthemum flowers. Pyrethroids are used in numerous products that are available over the counter to consumers, such as, household insecticides, pet shampoos and sprays, and even lice shampoos. We spray Pyrethroids on shrubs, low lying trees, your foundation, mulch beds, etc. Our product is approved under both the Federal Pest Control Products Act and the Provincial Pesticides Act.

How much does it cost?

Each property is unique and we customize each barrier spray application to successfully treat your mosquito problem. We price our applications based on the size and density of foliage of your property and the amount of chemical that we will need to use. You can contact us any time for a free quote and we usually don’t even need to visit your property.

Can my children play in the yard during a Mosquitoman treatment?

MOSQUITOMANS applications dry typically in 30 minutes. When dry, there is little opportunity for the product to transfer to dry people or pets that brush against the vegetation. However, children and pets should be kept away during application and for the proceeding time it takes for the treatment to dry. If your children’s skin comes in contact with the spray before it dries, wash it off with soap and water.

Is there an all-natural treatment option?

Yes, however please note that our all-natural spray needs to be applied more often to be effective and it repels mosquitoes rather than eliminating them. The all-natural treatment is a good option if you have a significant portion of vegetable gardens and ponds on your property. Prices may differ for this solution so please contact us for a quote.

Do you spray the grass?

Not normally, since mosquitoes do not typically use your grass as a resting area. The most common “hot spots” for hunting mosquitoes during the day include under the leaves of dense bushes and shrubs, underneath decks, and in damp shaded areas of the property. However, MosquitoMan does recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season. In some special circumstances like large outdoor parties and weddings, we will spray the grass where your guests will be.
