How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?
The effectiveness of a mosquito treatment depends on what treatment is used. Most types are effective for one to two months. The weather in our region, as well as the mosquito population size, can have an effect on how long the mosquito treatment in your property remains successful.
If you are working with a professional mosquito exterminator, they will help to determine if and when your the North and East Bay property needs to be treated for mosquitoes. They also can determine when the treatment needs to be reapplied in order to remain effective throughout the entire mosquito season.
How Many Mosquito Treatments Do I Need?
You usually need more than one mosquito treatment to make sure it stays in effect throughout the spring and summertime in the North and East Bay. After the first dose of mosquito treatment is applied, the repellent will begin to degrade after about a month. To avoid a lapse in protection, it’s important to have your yard sprayed again for mosquitoes to keep the barrier going throughout the fall and winter.
