Does Mosquito Spray Really Work?
Mosquitos, known as one of the most pesky bugs here in Phoenix Arizona. We have all had it, a bite that itches for days and you can never seem to get rid of them. Living in the Phoenix valley you are probably thinking can I ever get rid of these relentless critters? The answer is yes you can, mosquito spray can actually assist in protecting your yard and porch areas in very effective ways. You have the option for using a garden hose, or end sprayer, aerosols, or even a fogger to spray the yard. Mosquito spray should be dispersed in areas that they are resting, for example tall grass, standing water, flower beds, moist areas, and anywhere you may think they might be. We will go over below exactly how mosquito spray works and some things you can do to prevent getting bit in your own backyard.
How It Works?
Mosquito repellent works by interfering with the mosquito’s ability to detect their host, more specifically limits their ability to detect a person to feast on. Depending on the product, sprays available to homeowners can last up to a few hours or even up to several days. Professional service technicians treatment last much longer than a DIY method. They have access to EPA approved pesticides that are effectively designed to last much longer than your over the counter products. Not only that but they are licensed and certified which means they have done extensive training on how to properly treat your property for mosquitos. Over the counter pesticides can contain harmful chemicals that may hurt or negatively affect any pets or young ones in the home. So make sure to let the spray dry for at least 30 minutes before letting the little ones back out. Always follow the label instructions on the product before using it to help ensure it is being used safely.
