If you’ve noticed an uptick in the number of mosquitoes on your property in Oklahoma, well, that’s because the mosquito season is now underway. These annoying pests can easily invade your property if nothing is done, and once they’ve established themselves in your yard, they can be quite difficult to get rid of by yourself.

That’s why you should hire a professional mosquito control company to deal with them for you. Mosquito control professionals will know what areas to target in your yard and they'll also use top-of-the-line products and equipment for maximum efficacy when treating your property. And finally, professionals will have a set schedule where they’ll visit your property multiple times to ensure that your property is always protected! Continue reading to learn why you should hire professionals instead of trying to get rid of the mosquitoes yourself!

You could miss harborage areas and still end up with a mosquito problem.

Mosquitoes love to take shelter in areas where they can hide from the sun and breed. They don’t need much water to start reproducing, meaning any area that retains the tiniest bit of moisture can attract mosquitoes. This makes it difficult to ensure you’ve covered every spot on your property. And if you missed any areas while spraying your property, then you'll still be left with a mosquito problem. However, professional mosquito control companies will know exactly where to target. They have the skills and experience to make sure that no spots are missed, including harborage areas that you might not have even thought about.

To limit the amount of mosquitoes on your property, you can remove items with standing water like buckets, dog dishes, or bird baths.

The product and equipment you use might not be effective against mosquitoes.

When you attempt to spray for mosquitoes yourself, you may not be using a product that’s super effective against mosquitoes. Additionally, you might not even have the right equipment to ensure that the product is applied correctly. Professionals, on the other hand, will use products that are proven to be effective against mosquitoes. They’ll even have equipment like backpack foggers to ensure that the product is applied correctly and covers all of the areas around your property to keep mosquitoes away.

You'll need to apply multiple mosquito treatments to keep your property protected.

If you try to control the mosquito population on your property on your own, you will need to reapply the treatments regularly. Typically, mosquito control products are only effective for around a month, so you need to administer multiple treatments to ensure your property is protected throughout the mosquito season. Another advantage to hiring professionals is that they will have a set schedule to reapply their treatments throughout the mosquito season, ensuring your property is always protected. You can just sign up for the program at the start of the season and never have to worry about it again. You can trust the professionals to return to your property so that there isn’t any lapse in coverage!

If you still notice a lot of mosquitoes after a treatment, ask your mosquito control company if they'll respray your property before your next scheduled visit!
