How Long Does Mosquito Treatment Last?

Depending on what type of mosquito treatment is applied, effectiveness can last for one to two months. The surrounding environment, weather, and quantity of mosquitoes can all play into how long mosquito treatment lasts. When you choose to work with a professional mosquito control expert, they will determine the optimal time to retreat your property.

The goal is to make sure that your property is mosquito-free throughout the whole mosquito season, which is why you might need follow-up treatments.

How Many Mosquito Treatments are Necessary?

Multiple mosquito treatments are usually required to maintain consistent protection against mosquitoes during the spring and summer. After about a month, your repellent will start to fade away, weakening the barrier around your yard. Rather than allow the repellent to decrease in power, it’s crucial to reapply the repellent to protect yourself and your family from mosquitoes through the summer. 

How Often Should You Have Mosquito Treatment Applied?

You should stay aware of potential mosquito vulnerabilities in between professional treatment sessions. Practice the following inspection routine to make sure that mosquitoes stay away from your yard:

  1. Inspect your yard weekly to look for signs of mosquito activity.
  2. Pour out any containers that have collected stagnant water.
  3. Use fans when outside to block mosquitoes with wind.

How Long Should Mosquito Treatment Last?

Mosquito treatment should start in the early spring months—mosquito activity starts to rise in April here in Knoxville. After your first treatment, your mosquito control technician will help you decide the best time to reapply treatment. This could be anywhere from 4-8 weeks after your first repellent application. If you notice the effects wearing off during your first month of treatment, contact your technician for help.
