Mosquito Control Frequently Asked Questions


Is the treatment safe?
Our treatment is non-toxic to humans, pets, or birds and can be used in outdoor seating areas, dog and children play areas, dog kennels, dog houses, horse barns and livestock areas. The treatment is also safe near birdbaths and bird feeders. Guests and employees can safely return to the outdoor area 30 minutes after treatment.How long does the Barrier Spray last?
Our Barrier Spray kills mosquitoes for 21 days. The spray kills adult mosquitoes, fleas and ticks immediately. The spray stays on your foliage and continues to kill pests for 21 days. Mosquitoes rest during the day on and under foliage and thus are exposed to the residual effects of the barrier spray. Even if pests from surrounding properties fly into your yard and stop to rest on your vegetation they will be killed as well. It is possible that mosquitoes can come into your outdoor area and not land on a treated area and bite; however, mosquito population will be tremendously reduced.Does Metro Mosquito offer commercial services?
