About mosquitoes

Know where to look

The first thing to know about treating mosquitoes is to treat them where they lay and hatch eggs. Typically this is will always be in the very damp and wet parts of the yard. While it varies from home to home, for most people it's the low spots in the yard since water can pool and areas underneath large bushes where the heat of the day can't effectively dry the area.

Treatments

Frequent treatments

Due to Austin's warm temperatures, mosquitoes are active year round. Mosquitoes have rapid reproduction cycle which makes treatment fairly frequent (more frequent than a regular pest control service).
