At best, mosquitoes are annoying; at worst, their bites can be life-threatening. That's why mosquito control for your Phoenix home is so important. At Green Home Pest Control, we offer professional mosquito control services that are safe and highly effective in getting rid of these terrible biting insects.
A mosquito is a type of fly. While many other fly species resemble mosquitoes or even giant mosquitoes, there's only one kind of mosquito in Arizona. Unlike some beneficial insects, mosquitoes are only good as food for other animals.
In addition to the red, itchy bumps that may last for days after a bite, mosquitoes can also transmit viruses to humans and pets that they pick up from other animals' blood. Mosquitoes can spread malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, Zika virus, West Nile virus, and others.

Our technicians will visually inspect your property looking for any potential harborage areas for mosquitoes in all their stages of life. We will go over our findings with you and give recommendations on how best to prevent mosquito problems in the future.
During treatment, we will eliminate any accessible standing water sources like birdbaths, buckets, etc. We'll also use the traditional spray method on areas such as harborage areas with a focus on leaves, foliage, and shaded areas to ensure that we treat all areas with active mosquito activity. We will also treat all areas of standing water that cannot be treated with larvicide.
Green Home Pest Control now also offers the In2Care Mosquito Trap System which attracts and kills both adult and larval Aedes mosquitoes with green ingredients. These innovative traps attract female mosquitoes, which land on a biological agent containing a growth regulator that kills the larvae in the trap. It also has a fungus that kills adults. The females carry these agents out to other areas of standing water, killing any larvae there.
The combination of our professional mosquito control service and your efforts to keep mosquitoes away from your yard is the best approach to reduce mosquito populations. These mosquito control and prevention tips will help:
Mosquitoes need very little standing water to breed, so you'll need to inspect your property closely. In addition to the more obvious spots like birdbaths or ponds that hold stagnant water, look for anything that can capture water like:
If you have a swimming pool, make sure to keep the water properly chlorinated and circulating.
The fewer places where mosquitoes can hide, the better. Keep your property free of piles of dead foliage and clip tall weeds and grasses. If your landscape includes any thick underbrush, avoid it during the sunrise and sunset hours when mosquitoes can be most active.
There's nothing more annoying than swatting at mosquitoes that have gotten into your house! To keep them from getting inside, closely inspect screens on doors and windows, and repair even the smallest holes. Also, add weatherstripping to seal entry points. Prevent mosquitoes from breeding indoors by ensuring that any water in vases or under plant pots gets emptied regularly.
As with all of our pest control services, our goal is to keep mosquitoes under control at your home or business while still being kind to the environment. To do that, we've developed botanical and organically derived solutions that are just as effective in getting rid of mosquitoes as they are safe for our planet.
Our four-step mosquito control service kills the mosquitoes that you have now while also helping to prevent new mosquito infestations.
Here's how we treat your mosquito problem at every stage of the insect's life:
We closely inspect your property for any places that may harbor mosquitoes at both their adult and larval stages. We'll review our findings with you and recommend measures that can support long-lasting mosquito control.
Wherever we locate standing water, whether in a birdbath or just a small item such as a water bottle cap, we'll eliminate it.
Our mosquito control includes a misting treatment to areas of foliage where adult mosquitoes rest. One of the most important steps in misting these areas is to spray the undersides of all leaves and foliage. This step is one that many mosquito control services omit, but it makes all the difference. We'll also treat under patios and decks, in shaded grassy areas, beneath overhangs, and more.
If there are areas where water collection or stagnant water can't be eliminated, we treat them with larvicides to prevent immature mosquitoes from maturing into adults.
Part of the difficulty with treating mosquitoes comes from their sheer numbers and the number of potential breeding sites they can use to keep multiplying. In2Care addresses both of these problems simultaneously, turning the mosquitoes’ natural behavior against themselves and severely reducing mosquito populations in the process.

By far, the most effective way to keep the mosquito population from exploding in your yard is to eliminate every source of standing water. That means making sure even a little bit of water isn't allowed to collect in items on your property. Frequently empty and replace the water in fountains or birdbaths, keep rain gutters cleared out, and check your irrigation system for drips or leaks that let small amounts of water collect beneath them.
To reduce your chances of being bitten, try not to be outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, usually around dawn and dusk. If you must be outside during these hours, wearing light, loose-fitting clothes can help and use some type of repellent. DEET is one of the most effective mosquito repellents, but you shouldn't use it on very young children. There are also repellents made especially for clothing, shoes, and camping gear, which are not for use on the skin.
A good course of action is to use safe, natural repellents, such as:
You can also limit mosquito bites by having professional mosquito control services. At Green Home Pest Control, we offer you world-class mosquito control solutions that are safe and effective.
Understandably, everyone wants a quick, easy solution to mosquito problems. Bug zappers are promoted as effective on mosquitoes, but they're not. Unlike many other insects, mosquitoes gravitate to the carbon dioxide we exhale rather than light.
The most effective and long-lasting solution is mosquito control from a professional pest control company. A considerable problem with bug zappers is that they're indiscriminate; they kill beneficial insects as well as those you don't want. They may also make your home more attractive to insects, which are drawn by the light.
We service the entire Phoenix area, including these cities:
If you don't see your city on this list, please give us a call, and we'll let you know if we serve your neighborhood. Green Home Pest Control will be glad to provide you with a free quote online or over the phone.
Choosing plants known to repel mosquitoes is a great, natural way to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard.
