It’s no secret — Missouri has mosquitoes and a lot of them. At least we’re not in Louisiana where the mosquito is the state bird!

According to the Missouri Department of Conservation*, Missouri has approximately 50 different species of mosquitoes buzzing around, leaving itchy bumps and spreading diseases.

Every spring and summer, these blood-sucking insects invade our yards and wreak havoc on our outside time.

Due to the health concerns of mosquito-borne diseases, such as West Nile virus, mosquito abatement or reduction services are becoming more and more popular. This service helps control the mosquito population by using pet-safe mosquito spray for your residential or business lawn. Aside from eliminating that annoying buzz by your ears, driving down your mosquito population also helps lower the risk of mosquito-borne disease.

Can you spot the mosquitoes on these unsuspecting party guests?
Hint: there are three.

Don’t worry, they are quarantined together. They aren’t breaking any social distancing rules.

Maybe you’re isolated from friends or family right now and all you want to do is curl up in your hammock outside on a nice day. There’s nothing more annoying than swatting away pesky mosquitoes just when you get to a good part.

The color of your grass doesn’t mean anything, really, unless it’s brown and has bare spots. We can help you with that, too!

How can Atkins help me with mosquitoes?

Call us today to ask to get a free quote for our Monthly Mosquito Barrier Spray. We use a truck-mounted power sprayer to treat potential mosquito resting areas. These locations typically include:

  • Under decks and porches.
  • The eaves of your home.
  • Bushes and shrubs.
  • Other areas based on individual need.

Mobile populations of adult mosquitoes are hard to control, so it is best to use a combination of reduction tactics. The mosquito barrier spray service treats the areas where mosquitoes are most likely to rest during daytime hours. Applications are done monthly from April to September.

Protect Your Pets from Mosquito-Borne Disease

Harper’s happy because her parents signed up for the Atkins Monthly Mosquito Barrier Spray (and she’s also on a monthly heartworm preventative as recommended by her veterinarian).

Reducing the number of mosquitoes in Harper’s yard reduces the chances of her getting heartworm disease, a disease transmitted by mosquitoes

Will this treatment eliminate mosquitoes from my lawn?
No. In our climate, there is no way to completely eliminate mosquitoes from your lawn, however, this treatment can greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes within the treated area. It won’t keep a mosquito from flying in from down the street, but will provide you with significant relief.

Is the monthly mosquito spray safe for my pets?
Yes. As soon as the treatment has dried, it’s safe for the entire family.
