A little bit. But it is important to understand that foggers only kill adult mosquitoes in the direct vicinity of the foggers. They do nothing to address eggs and larvae in your yard. They are also topical, so they’re not going to get into some locations that mosquitoes hide, such as underneath your deck or in shrubs, bushes, and other ornamental plants and trees. Foggers purchased from over the counter retailers have active agents that don’t work very well or for very long.
Mosquito reduction is a proven method for reducing the risk of mosquito-borne pathogens. Here’s how it works:
- A technician does a detailed inspection and identifies locations in your yard that allow mosquitoes to live or breed.
- Routine spray treatments are applied in strategic areas around your property to make hiding spots a mosquito trap.
- Breeding areas that can be modified to resist mosquitoes are suggested to you, and areas that cannot be modified are treated with larvicide to make them unusable for mosquito breeding.
Best Mosquito Control Options
When done by a professional, mosquito control can drastically reduce mosquito populations in your yard, and when you reduce mosquito populations you are also reducing your exposure to the dangerous pathogens they are able to spread.
