How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?

While this varies between types of mosquito treatments, most types are effective for up to two months. The weather, environment, and the mosquito population size can all affect how long mosquito treatment stays effective. When you work with a professional mosquito control expert, they will determine when your East Tennessee home or property needs to be treated again for mosquitoes.

The goal is to ensure your yard is mosquito-proof throughout the entire mosquito season, which is why multiple treatments may be required.

How Many Mosquito Treatments Do I Need?

Especially in Eastern Tennessee with our long mosquito season, more than one treatment may be required to protect your home from these pests. After a month or so, the repellent that was applied will begin to degrade, therefore weakening the barrier around your yard. Rather than let the repellent fade away, it’s important to have your yard retreated to continue protecting you and your family from mosquitoes until the fall and winter months.

How Often Should I Get Mosquito Treatment?

In between professional treatment, you should still keep an eye on your yard to look for signs of mosquito activity. In addition, practice the following routine to ensure mosquitoes stay away:

  1. Inspect your yard every week during mosquito season to look for signs of activity.
  2. Tip over any containers that have accumulated standing or stagnant water.
  3. When spending time outside, use a fan to discourage mosquitoes from gathering.

Mosquito Treatment Timeline for Tennessee Residents

Tennessee residents are accustomed to a long mosquito season, making it important to safeguard your property early in the year. The best time to start is early April. After the initial treatment, your professional mosquito control expert will work with you to determine when you may need to be re-treated. This could be anywhere from 4-6 weeks after the initial repellent application. If during the first month you notice the repellent is not effective, it’s important to always reach out to your exterminator for assistance.
