You spend all this time and money to maintain a terrific lawn, shouldn’t you be able to comfortably enjoy it? Aside from the overall annoyance and pain that mosquito bites cause, they can also bring with them life-threatening diseases. Mosquitoes are known carriers of diseases such as Zika Virus, West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, Dengue Fever & Yellow Fever. Family pets are also at risk as they also carry canine heartworm.
What Do You Do to Protect My Family?
Pro Grass will apply a “barrier spray” around your property which is aimed at greatly reducing the mosquito population. Our program consists of 5 applications which are done at 60 day intervals. We begin applications in April, and continue through the summer months. We use a rotation of products to target mosquito adults as well as larvae. This reduces the population before they can emerge as biting adults.
Spring application targets overwintering adults and larvae, thus reducing the population going into the season
Early Summer Treatment targets both adults and larvae mosquitoes as they begin to emerge
Second Summer treatment ensured Mosquito protection during their heightened activity
Early Fall Treatment will continue to limit adult mosquito activity, as well as larvae
Late Fall treatment will target overwintering larvae and adults and ensure the entire life cycle of the mosquito has been targeted

The technician will also identify areas that are optimal for mosquito breeding and recommend ways to eliminate these mosquito “hotspots”. Most common among these are areas with a large amount of leaf litter and standing water.
