Does Organic Mosquito Control Work? (and a Look at Cost & Finding a Mosquito Spray Company in Memphis)

Mosquitoes are a dangerous pest that can pose a legitimate threat to you and your family. Knowing that they can carry diseases like Zika Virus and West Nile Virus, you might be looking for ways that you can keep them far away.

Of course, the last thing that you want is for your mosquito control choice to become a new risk you have to worry about. That completely defeats the purpose. That’s why you might be looking for organic mosquito control options.

But does organic mosquito control work? Can it actually provide you with protection against these dangerous pests while still remaining safe for you and your family to come into contact with? 

These are questions that we often receive and we understand your concern. That’s why we’re answering them here today.

Does Organic Mosquito Control Work?

If you’re going to invest in organic mosquito spray, you want to feel confident that it’s actually going to get you the results you’re after. There’s nothing more frustrating than paying for something that doesn’t work.

Fortunately, we can answer that question with an assured yes—and we’re basing that answer on satisfied feedback from our clients.

There are a few reasons why our mosquito control program is effective. For one, we’ve figured out just the right number of visits that are needed to ensure there are no periods where your property goes unprotected. We space mosquito applications approximately 30 to 40 days apart and run them from April through October, when mosquitoes are most active here in Memphis, TN.

Another key to our success is that we are identifying and then targeting prime mosquito habitats on your property. A lot of people are surprised to learn that mosquitoes are weak fliers and stop often to rest. The key to getting rid of mosquitoes on your property is figuring out where they’re going to take that rest and treating those areas with an effective product. 

Going the Extra Mile

Another reason why our organic mosquito control really does work is that we go further than other companies. 

For one, we leave cultural recommendations suggesting where areas of standing water can be addressed. If you have children’s toys that are frequently left outside and collecting water or gutters that are clogged, these can become breeding sites for mosquitoes. But we’ll make suggestions as to how you can address these areas. 

We care about helping you see results.

Of course, we recognize that there are some areas of standing water that can’t be simply fixed. For instance, you might have a pond or bird bath that you want to keep or an area of bad drainage on your property that cannot easily be fixed. 

When warranted, we also utilize an additional product for areas of standing water that can go the extra mile in killing mosquitoes in these specific spots.

Is Organic Mosquito Control Safe?

We understand that people also have concerns about safety. But our product is equivalent to the organic mosquito products that you might apply to your body or even put on kids. Because of that, we’re able to treat areas near decks and patios or even near playsets—where mosquitoes absolutely love to hang out, but where other companies (using synthetic products) have to avoid due to the fact that they don’t have a safe product.

This is another important reason in terms of our effectiveness. We don’t have to limit where we’re treating as a result of safety. We can truly create an effective shield across your entire property.

How Much Does Organic Mosquito Control Cost?

At Master Lawn, our Organic Mosquito Control Program starts at $60 per visit. We also offer a 5% prepay discount, bringing the starting cost down to $399 per year. This is ultimately a small price to pay when it comes to the valuable peace of mind that you’ll gain.

While a lot of people attempt a DIY mosquito control approach in order to save money, store-bought products are simply not as effective as what a professional can offer. Plus, with a professional you’re also investing in their knowledge and expertise in terms of where and how to treat.

Don’t Let the Mosquitoes Win

If you’ve been battling mosquitoes in the past, you know that they’re a threat to your enjoyment as well as your peace of mind. 

But you don’t have to let them win.

By making a wise choice in organic mosquito control, you can gain confidence that your mosquito problem is being addressed without creating new safety risks to worry about. That means finally letting go of your worries and getting back to enjoying your yard.
