Should You Hire a Professional to Spray for Mosquitoes or DIY?
If you spend any time researching organic options for mosquito control, you will likely come across several DIY options. Unfortunately, DIY mosquito control products, even those containing some level of cedar oil, haven’t proven very effective against mosquitoes. Professional-grade products typically contain higher-end ingredients, making them more potent and effective.
In addition, professionals that work for a pest control company have to be licensed to spray any form of chemicals on your property. This licensing means studying for and passing a difficult exam and completing continuing education every single year in order to keep licensure. This means professionals know where and how often to apply mosquito control to ensure effectiveness. Professionals have the right equipment, like a backpack mister with an option for fine mist, not just a spray bottle.
Spraying for mosquitoes using organic products requires both time and money, as you need to spray at least every 30 days to keep mosquito populations under control. While it may seem like trying the DIY approach will end up saving you money, in fact, it typically ends up costing you materials, equipment, time, and a subpar end result.
