I signed up for this service as I quickly realized I do not have the time I thought I would to tend to the lawn. I am truly impressed with the service and quick improvement my lawn has had in the last two months! In addition to scheduled lawn care, the most recent tech De'Janae even brought my trash/recycling bins that were left at the street from trash day up to my garage during her visit. I appreciate the time and thoughtfulness I have seen thus far.- Arielle Nielsen

Mosquito Control in Shady Side

There is nothing quite like spending an evening enjoying the fresh air in your backyard. However, when mosquitoes claim your yard as their territory, you’re sent fleeing indoors to escape the itchy mosquito bites. Not to mention, mosquitoes can put your family at risk for a variety of dangerous diseases.

Our Shady Side mosquito control programs are conducted over a seven-month period – April through October – providing you with a mosquito-free backyard come summertime. Our mosquito control in Shady Side is broken up into three simple and effective steps:

  • Inspection – Just like with our pest control, our expert Shady Side exterminators will thoroughly inspect your lawn to identify problem areas and breeding grounds.
  • Treat – The identified high-risk areas with be treated with products to control the existing larvae while the rest of your lawn will receive treatments targeting adult mosquitos. All products used during treatment are EPA-certified and environmentally friendly.
  • Repeat – We will return 7 times, 21-30 days apart to make sure our programs are working as desired.

Having B.O.G. on your side means you can ditch the bug spray and citronella once and for all. Learn more about our Shady Side mosquito control programs today!
